This place is good for quick grab. They have freshly fried chips with many different types of mayo based sauce. My only concern is that the amount of chips or sauce given are often fluctuating depending on who serves you. It used to be better but still there aren't many places like this in Jena and for such a cheap... More

I have been to several places that sell curry wurst in Germany and Fritz Mitte is really the best! Their fries are also excellent if you like the thick kind, with crunchy outside and soft inside. Highly recommended.

The fries are really crispy from the outside and soft from the inside! Plus the big portion is enough for two people and only for 2,30 EUR. I could never finish the big portion on my own. They have a variety of mayos to choose from, my favorite so far is the Honey-Mustard mayo. You have to get those fries... More

Had a quick lunch there once trying there fries. There had always been a queue which made me curious. Indeed, the fries were fresh, well fried and I got a healthy portion. The mayonnaise was good too.

It is a clever move to be located right at the start of the famous restaurant and bar street, called Wagnergasse, in the student town that is Jena. If you are looking for a cheap and quick eat that is also tasty and waaaaaaay better than McDonalds and its fries, come here. You can choose between 2 sizes of Belgian... More

The currywurst is delicious, and the fries are yummy! I recommend the honey-lemon-Dijon mayo to go with it! Affordable prices, and the staff I've had (both times I have been) have spoken English! The portions are big too! The only downside is that there is no "real" place to sit. People walk to the sitting area of the old vacant... More

very cheap, very yummy, a good amount of food for a few euros, super friendly and funny staff, right in the center of Jena, BUT be prepared for the queue (I've never seen this place uncrowded), it takes like 10 to 30 minutes (depends on the daytime), despite the queue I can definitely recommend this place!

Fritze Mitte is one of the foodstands in one of the foodie parts of the town. It serves a very basic menu, fries and currywurst, but what makes it different is the choice of mayonnaise and other sauces available. The fries are made of genuine potato and you can taste this. They are also cheap, so be prepared to queue.... More
