Very good German food in a warm atmosphere. The restaurant has been around for many years and is apparently a family owned enterprise. There is a nice bar area in the front and the restaurant in the rear. German beer on tap. The menu includes many German favorites such as sauerbraten, bratwurst, pork loin. There are also a number of... More

Each time my wife and I have a chance to go out - we venture over to Fritzl's. Each time the food is good, the service is enjoyable and we walk out saying we need to do this more often.

My wife and I had dinner at Fritzel's in late August and we were less than thrilled with the authenticity of the food. We love German food but the food served at Fritzel's was a few steps above fast food quality. We both had the weinerschnitzel and it was dry and somewhat tasteless. I asked for mine ala holstein with... More

I've now been to Fritzl's twice, and both times were fantastic. Love the decor-old school dining room with large tables and booths. Has a great bar that makes great cocktails before and after dinner. The hardest part is figuring out what to order. The appetizers are fantastic, and large enough to share with the other member of your party. Also--the... More

Tasty German meals, sides, beer, and desserts. A little German heritage on the north side of Chicago. Our waitress was attentive, but gave us plenty of time to leisurely enjoy our meal, as we conversed with our friends on this special occasion. We stayed until closing. The schnitzel and red cabbage was excellent. So was the Bienenstich and apple strudel... More

We wanted to pick something that reminded us of our hertiage for an annivesary dinner. Fritzl's was outstanding - service, food and ambience were all wonderful. The evening was special due to the combination of these three elements.

I sometimes drop by Fritzl's for a beer. They have excellent European beer on tap, and the appetizer menu is perfect. I recommend the sausages appetizer, the brats are excellent. I've eaten in the restaurant here and the service was great. When you get a hankering for German food, this is a very nice choice. But truth told, I usually... More
