Affordable, tasty and authentic!

The currywurst is delicious, and the fries are yummy! I recommend the honey-lemon-Dijon mayo to go with it! Affordable prices, and the staff I've had (both times I have been) have spoken English! The portions are big too! The only downside is that there is no "real" place to sit. People walk to... read more

very cheap, very yummy, a good amount of food for a few euros, super friendly and funny staff, right in the center of Jena, BUT be prepared for the queue (I've never seen this place uncrowded), it takes like 10 to 30 minutes (depends on the daytime), despite the queue I can definitely recommend this place!

Fritze Mitte is one of the foodstands in one of the foodie parts of the town. It serves a very basic menu, fries and currywurst, but what makes it different is the choice of mayonnaise and other sauces available. The fries are made of genuine potato and you can taste this. They are also cheap, so be prepared to queue.... More

The best french fries in town. This place is famous in Jena for the best fries and especially the variety of sauces it serves with it for a very reasonable price. I am just in love with it. It is so popular that you have to wait for atleast half an hour in the queue for your turn, no matter... More

If you’re craving for some cheap fries and don’t mind waiting on a slow line, this might be the place for you. The fries are pretty good. Unlike the ones you get at Mickey D's, Frits Mittle fries have real potato flavor to it and won’t get limpy even after sitting under mayo toppings for a while. You can have... More

This is a small stand alone place at the begining of Wagnergasse in Jena center. The place is sorrounded by very nice restaurants with outdoor seating, but after 2 days seeing this place and the waiting lines never ended i decided to give a try. I will never regret making the 15 minutes line. The fries are just awesome, I... More

The taste of the fries and the sausages are very good. But the fries are quite greasy. Sometimes the booth emits the smell of old deep fry grease and the surrounding is not always clean which decreases rating to average only. It has the charm of an typical fries booth.

Originally I didn't like Fritz Mitte that much. I think the best time to go is when you're really hungry or drunk..but the fries taste very good. The mayo sauces are good, but honestly taste more like mayo with just a hint of what they say the flavoring is. Try to get their early or really late that way you... More

If we don't consider the intrinsic unhealthy nature of the food they sell, the fries are really good, and the mayonnaise dressing are original and homemade (so they claim). There's always a line...so plan to wait around 15minutes. Ah...it's supercheap.
