Best Sausages and bread in Zurich

Everytime we go to Zurich for family vacation, we will go to Sternen Grill at least once for sure. To try their sausage with bread is a must! Although I'm not a big fan of hard bread in general, I love their bread to go with the sausages.

Unfortunately this is heading downhills. The famous ausages are burnt, staff is too stressed and very often rude. Sometimes it's hard to communicate in any language with them (german or english). A lot of smokers

We went there after reading some reviews online. Yes, for Zurich this may be something "special" but for all rest countries, even for non-European ones, this is a simple wurst/grill place, having simple but too expensive finger food. I will never go again, even if the good was not bad.

This is an iconic fast food place in Zürich. The newelry renovated restaurant in 2014 offers a great quick bite as well as casual seating options both outside and inside. With all due respect, I wouldn't say that the quality of this place's offering is any higher or lower than other Bratwurst places ... but, the location is central =... More

This place has amazing grilled sausages and only! There is always a line which proves the quality. We tried white sausages and hamburger both were delicious!

Sternen Grill has the best bratwurst, bürli, and beer anywhere. Best enjoyed standing outside at a table.

Friendly staff. Honest food. With a free view over the lake from the upper floor. Famous for their Bratwurst. The staff is not pushy and you can (if you wish) share one of the long tables.

Truly traditional Swiss sausages and other fast foods to take out or eat there at seated or standing tables. Busy atmosphere from dawn to dusk. The place is so famous it is continuously packed.

I have been told by those who may know, that the traditional St Gallen bratwurst is available here in Zürich. I do know that this is a extremely tasty lunch, of which those in the the fast moving queue may also be aware.

My partner and I were wandering around Zurich and looking for a lunchtime fix. The queue of people of all ages reaching outside tempted us in. Not understanding the term Gold Burli I was a little taken aback just to be handed a bratwurst wrapped in paper - a few minutes later I realised I could pick up a Burli... More
