Don't waste your time ordering the burger!!!! I ordered the half portion burger which is 8 plus inches in diameter and extremely flat, overcooked and dry. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

The atmosphere, staff, food and drinks were awesome. Visited with a large group of friends. We had more food than we could eat, the prices were reasonable and we had a lot of fun.

Fun place to eat. Food is very good, but not great. Don't let that stop you...you will have a great time and leave full and satisfied. Big portions. Fantastic wait staff. You have to go...

This is always a great place to eat if you are hungry. The food tattered amazing and the portions are huge. Let's just say they serve 3Lt beers. It's a must try if you want to try good German food and enjoy an amazing atmosphere.

Our first visit to Germany to see our military family. The wait staff was excellent. Our food was hot and the presentation nice. The portions are definitely large but 'to go boxes' were offered. My schnitzel was amazing--tender and cooked perfectly. The spätzle was delicious. We'll definitely schedule a return visit before going back to the US.

At our table, we had schnitzel with cream sauce and spetzel, hawaiian schnitzel, and bratwurst with pommes fries. The two schnitzel dishes were great. The bratwurst was not my favorite with American mustard. All dishes were properly cooked and presented. The kitchen is very clean and I was allowed to look in. The is worth you time to try.

This is a nice restaurant to eat at if you are in the neighborhood. They accomodated our group of sixteen easily, including offering separate checks. A word of caution - the 'half burger' is about 30 cm in diameter, just enormous. Service was very friendly and the restaurant appeared clean.

I have never left a burger unfinished before. I simply ran out of room. I found the prices to be competitive with other establishments in the area and the staff provided absolutely the best service I have received since I have lived in Kaiserslautern. I can't express how pleased I was with the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff and... More

This is one of those great finds in the world tripadvisor. I ordered the schnitzel burger and fries with the 3L (about one gallon) of beer. I took the burger leftovers for lunch for the next 3 days. I was lucky enough to taste their brats and sauerkraut! Ive yet to find or taste sauerkraut to even compare to that... More
