Great to try at least once

My husband & I stopped in Frankenmuth for a night. I heard the main things that we had to do were 1)Eat Chicken and 2)Visit the Christmas store. I'm a KY girl, for most of my life, so to me, I didn't really see the chicken as anything mind-blowing. Say whatever you want, but I would have been just... read more

Sunday buffet is excellent. You get the variety of the buffet, including best chicken ever, and dinner standards like: chicken noodle soup, cheese and liver pate and ice cream still served to table. The best of both worlds.

We ate in Zehnder's in their basement. The food was excellent and plentiful. We had the turkey and could hardly finish our plates. Prices were reasonable.

We stopped here for a late lunch. This place is really busy, but were seated within 10 minutes. We had the family style meals. The food was really good. Great service too!

We visit usually once a year for birthdays and find that it seems to loose its luster of previous years. The Chicken dinner for $21.00 seems to have lost menu items and flavor. The noodles are not as buttery, chicken seems more bland, not so juicy and the breads simpler? They look good but just don't seem to pack the... More

"World Famous" is a perfect description of our dinner tonight!! This All-you-can-eat chicken dinner is delicious from start to finish. Chicken noodle soup tastes so fresh & homemade. The appetizers fill the table with variety. We had cole slaw, cranberry and orange relish, liver pate, cheese ball, veggie cream cheese, toasted garlic bread, 2 other varieties of sliced bread with... More

We've been here countless of times and it never disappoints. We came here this time and had their Sunday buffet and it was awesome. Not only did they have the regular chicken dinner but they also have beef roast, shrimps and tons of yummy dessert. We really like Zehnder's.

This used to be a yearly destination that has fallen away over time. I am happy to say that our return did not dissapoint. There was a comfort of it being just like I remembered. The menu is varied to suite anyones taste. I was there for the "the" chicken dinner. The food was very good especially the appetizers which... More

Be prepared to eat when going here. Besides your meal you get bread, cole slaw, carrots, chicken soup and butter noodles. That is a meal within itself. Service was great and the main meal was excellant. The chicken is to die for.
