I'm still trying to figure out how they decided to locate a restaurant here in the middle of an industrial area. But then, I guess the distinctions are being blurred, with people buying directly from many of these places, especially the wildly popular Dimpflmeir Bakery next door. You wouldn't happen to drop in; you'd come here very much on purpose. We decided to try it as a foursome on a Thursday night. Almost didn't make a reservation, but you should - there was one lonely empty table off in a corner but otherwise full.
Two of us had the pork hox and proclaimed it very good. Of course, impossible to finish so there's another meal waiting in the fridge. This is definitely the signature dish; I'd say 3/4 of the customers ordered it. My Franz Josef schnitzel was okay but perhaps a little overdone. Different, rolled up with Dijon and cheese. Worth a try once but I wouldn't have it again. Jaeger schnitzel was fine too, but again, nothing overly exciting.
The wines were at the low end of the scale, with prices to match. Those with more refined palates should stick to beer, which is more appropriate for this kind of food anyway. Desserts almost all came from Sweet Gallery, a very good quality bakery, but we opted for the strudel, the only dessert made in house, fresh every day. This is the way to go for sure.
As others have said, service was friendly but sometimes quite slow. While understaffed, the waitresses still seemed to have plenty of time for conversations with customers.
Overall, we were impressed and hope to return for lunch, where there is a wide and interesting selection.
This is not high class dining. No snob appeal and not a yuppie in sight. But it's not a greasy spoon or diner either. More like the kind of place a German working man might go to for a nice evening out. And that's okay with me.
