Friendly and Tasty German Food

I had the veal schnitzel and it was everything I could have hoped for. The mashed potatoes and green beans were also great. The German beer on tap was everything to hope for. Regretfully, I couldn't drink any beer due to other business obligations that day, but I hope to be back to do the place... read more

Made a reservation for our table of 8 and we were quickly seated. Drink and appetizer orders came quickly and the sausage sampler contained some of the best sauerkraut I have tasted as well as the potatoes pancakes. After that, things were hit and miss. The good: Sauerbraten and red cabbage, the onion and apple soup. Bad: Large tables which... More

The soup was the best we ever ate. All three of us wished we ordered another bowl instead of our entrée. But then again, our entrée was also great.

prices are not cheap but German surrounds this place very close to what I had in Germany. Excellent German beer and locals have their own mugs on wall to enjoy the beer

If you like an excellent variety of German beers and good German food to compliment it, Old Munchen is a good choice. Diverse selection of traditional German fare prepared fresh and served promptly. This is an unassuming atmosphere, which may be bland for some diners but is appropriate for the cuisine. Recommend always and visit regularly.

My wife and I had lunch at Checkers Old Munchen this afternoon and we were so happy with our choices. I had the combination appetizer which included 2 potato pancakes, knockwurst, bratwurst, sauerkraut and red cabbage salad. My wife had the schnitzel with 2 sides, 1 was the red cabbage salad and the other a warm German potato salad. We... More

As a local, I've been here many times & I really enjoy this place. I love the beer selection and the food is fantastic. Best German food I've had outside of Germany! Service is great typically. Food comes out fast and steins are never empty. There is one lady there that is a bit rough around the edges when it... More
