Not as many fresh menu items as there used to be, but if you have a taste for some good old fashioned German eats, this is a great place. Recommend the pork roast, rouladen, and of course wiener schnitzel. Nice folks, small, simple atmosphere.

In side a deli, where you have plenty of sausages, hams and others to go to prepare at home, they have around 12 tables where you can enjoy a kind of homemade Germany food. I believe the owners take care of everything. During lunch, we...More

We enjoy German food and eat here often. Its better than other German places in the area. Have a dinner or a sandwhich and pick your favoite German or domestic beer to go with it. IF you want GOOD German food this is the place.
