“Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2015

This is our second time stopping here for a quick bite. Although on Sunday afternoons there will be a crowd and a wait for a table. We had sandwiches piled high with meat and fresh and tasty. Sweet potato fries were crisp, hot and tasty except for the portion being smaller than I like they were right on the mark. Coleslaw was creamy. Very, very busy on a Sunday afternoon so service was a bit slow but the food is so good one can overlook this fault. Prices are reasonable and waitstaff are friendly.

“New Owner - New Name - New Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014

The food is tasty, always nice to try authentic classic Austrian dishes. There is nothing like it in our hometown. We found the prices comparable to all the decent restaurants we've tried in Englewood. Love the burgers and the Philly cheese-steak is awesome too.
The wait staff is friendly and efficient.

“Horrible!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2014 via mobile

The food definitely lacks taste. Too charge these prices I would expect excellent food.Not a place I will be returning to.Not to mention an extra $2.50 charge for my friend and I sharing a platter. I can cut a sandwich in half myself for free.
