“Very good food and great beer selection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Small space inside but it is cozy and inviting. Good size outside seating area, live music and great beer selection.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great selection of food, snacks and beer. I've been enjoying their food since they were serving it out of a truck at different strip malls in Leesburg and never been disappointed. You know what you're gonna get, there aren't a ton of Turkish places in Leesburg, and unless you're willing to go into Fairfax County or D.C. you won't find many places that will top what these guys do. If you're looking for a five star experience that isn't what these guys do, they made their name on being simple and serving good food at a good quality. Will keep going back.

“Germany Revisited!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great food, good variety, fast service. You cannot go wrong at lunch time...or beer time. I've been here for lunch many times...The price is great and you will not leave hungry or with taste buds wanting.

“Felt like I was back in Germany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Finally got around to convincing my wife to join me in trying Doener Bistro. We were not disappointed. Of the four of us eating there, three of us have lived in Germany. All of us felt like we were sitting in a Gasthaus back in the old country. It's counter service and they offer imported German beers. But you can get beer anywhere - what they offer are great, authentic German meals. We were there for lunch and ordered Brat and Brotchen, mit bier. Also ordered a side of potato pancakes, and I would swear my grandmother (born and raised in Pforzheim until she was in her 20s) was back there cooking! Hat's off to the crew! Can't wait to go back and try the entire menu!

“2nd try, no plans to return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Went last night for a quick dinner. Can't even remember the menu name of the item I had, but it was a big cup with french fries, a little bit of meat in one corner, and a yogurty bland sauce on top. The sauce doesn't really seem to go with the rest of the ingredient, as it has a bit of a sour / tart bite. For me, that doesn't pair well with the saltiness of the fries. Meat portion was quite small and honestly not very memorable. On my first visit here, I had a doner and it was nothing special either. Striking this one from my list...
