Just awesome

Great food/patio/beer. Favorite spot in downtown Leesburg. The beer here is expensive but worth it. I personally like going on the nights they have lamb.

A fun small place to drink German beer and have a German "gyro". Really enjoy the french fries too. Small indoor seating but good outdoor seating especially in nice weather or during Oktoberfest. Historic self contained kitchen made from a B52 fuselage. Check it out!

Our family was stationed in Germany for 4 years and we often miss our old home. My daughter and I went here and she actually got tears in her eyes because it reminded her so much of Germany! Excellent service, reasonably priced and DELICIOUS food. We will definitely add the to our list of favorite places.

Good hearty food and beer along with a refreshing atmosphere. Given the layout of the restaurant it is best in the summertime along with live music and more but also a good choice for take out and the pricing is more than reasonable.

I love me some Doener as I grew up in Germany. But I have to say this was the worst one I had. I don't know of I came in to late or what. But my meat was dry and very fatty. The only plus point I do have to give as they have my favorite Kinder Schokolade. They also... More

We stopped here on a whim while traveling to the airport. The menu was enticing, the food was delicious, and the beer selection was amazing. A friendly and courteous staff made the experience a pleasure. This is one of the best German beer selections I have seen in the states. I had a Doner and was pleased with my choice.... More

We stopped by with another couple just to get a bite to eat before we moved on to a winery. I split potato pancakes with my wife, while my cousin and his wife split some fries. Everything was good, but would like to come back and get something more hearty some day! My wife was fond of the Potato Pancakes... More

We enjoyed some appetizers at Doener Bistro during the spring. Seating is outside on the porch with large picnic tables.
