That is great to hear! I also prefer the Papa Fritz sandwich grilled, so you have good taste! Come back sometime soon!

This is a German style deli. The food is good. Service was ok. It's pretty Americanized but the German influence is there. Don't expect NY City portions.

They don't take reservations, but the group of 10 of us arrived at the 7:30 opening. The friendly and helpful waitress moved three tables together and took pictures of the group. The waitress warned us that one breakfast taco would be sufficient for most of...More

This place was recommended for breakfast, didn't make breakfast but we did make it for lunch. Asked the server for the house special, for us it was chicken and dumplings, good choice. In addition we also order their Reuben, both were delicious. Recommend this place...More
