I always seem to stop here as I'm heading out of New Braunfels back home. This time I had the Wurst Kabob Plate advertised as five kinds of sausage on a stick with beans, potato salad and bread. I switched to the cole slaw, very good vinegar based, and the hot German potato salad, always one of my favorites. The... More

We enjoy this place. I like their turkey with dressing. It's the only thing I'll get. If it isn't available, we go somewhere else. They make great BarBQue. The sausages are good. I like taste testing the jerky. Most of their sides are terrific. I love the cranberry dressing, no mayo. We usually spend $20 on 2 of us. The... More

Okay, I liked the potato salad. And that concludes this writing. I could easily make this meal at home. One benefit was the workers knew what did and did not contain gluten, a no-no for me. That was a plus. We got out of here for $15 for two meals, so the prices were very reasonable.

This location used to be very rustic, but they now have a new, big building. We found this change in atmosphere not as appealing. The food was okay, however, when ordering, I would suggest requesting "lean", otherwise you may not be satisfied. When having your order taken, I would suggest patience and clarity (our order was all mixed up and... More

I love brisket but it was just average. Would not stop again but the people were friendly. My husband was happy with his beef.

Readers, I've had a lot of BBQ from the Rockies to Georgia. This one fits right in the category of the BBQ variety you can expect from a central Texas German country store. So you can ignore those negative reviews below. Here's the deal. This business has been famous for decades for their smoked meats-cheeses-sausages-jerky, mostly sold mail order as... More

The ribs were good, but did not have a natural smoked flavor. The brisket was also good but not great. Would not recommend or return.

Try the smoked turkey its mouth watering. I loved their stuffing and the cranberry salad is great.They have a lot of different smoked meats and jerky that is ready to take home. Not just a restaurant.

We had dinner (family with kids), on Sat night, at first we where surprised they closed at 8.00 pm, so we had to speed up out eating session. It is definitely not a restaurant, it is more a shop/self service deli style. no service is provided, fork and knives are plastic. Food was definitely good standard, German flavor. They had... More
