I had the pork schnitzel sandwich, and it was very good. They were out of fries, which I would have liked, but still filling. Big piece of schnitzel which made it a little difficult to eat as a sandwich.

The German/Austrian food is genuine. Some of the best Gulaschsuppe I've ever had. The beer selection was endless.

Stopped in for lunch with a business associate and was very pleased to get spaetzle that was made that morning and some Leberkaese (German Meatloaf) that was outstanding. For "fast" German food no where near germany it was fantastic.

One of the better sandwiches I've ever had. The thick fried bologna is pretty good and works perfect with the muenster cheese, pickle and horseradish. Will definitely get again!

Stopped in for a quick lunch- the schnitzel sandwich has tomato confit and it was amazing. Pork schnitzel was bang on- not tough at all, and the addition of those tomatoes really pushed it over the edge for me. Would go back often for that...More
