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.

Yes you will have to stand in line outside since only one person is running this place. Only food choices are currywurst and fries. They offer a variety of mayonnaise to have with your fries. The currywurst is delicious since the sauce is fruity and spicy but not runny like many other places. For 4.50€ you get fries currywurst and... More

Fritz Mitte deserves a place on any Jena city tour - it's that good! When I first came here, someone mentioned that the best food joint in the city is a fries place. That really lowered my expectation of finding good food in the city. But I was proven wrong the very first time I had the fries here. It... More

This place is well worth the wait (which is not really that long. Have some patience). Amazing fries, amazing currywurst. Not to be missed when visiting Jena.

The Currywurst at Fritz Mitte is some of the best I have ever had, and definitely blows Berliner evergreens Curry 36 and Konnopke's out of the water. €4.50 will get you a currywurst (a sausage that is fried, then chopped into bite-size pieces, and topped with your choice of mild or hot curry sauce), a massive portion of steak fries...

If you have a craving for currywurst, this is where you go. It's absolutely delicious. Be prepared however: rain or shine, winter or summer, this place always has a line. Waiting is totally worth it.

Got the "original" currywurst with fries. Chose the spicy rather than the mild sauce. Spicy turned out not to be spicy at all, but still very flavorful. I love the combo of wurst and the curry sauce. To add to an already great treat, the fries are great (basically steak fries), and the it's fun to try the various mayo... More
