Visited today for lunch and was happy about that decision. The decor was nice and there is plenty of seating available. Average crowd and the service was right on time. Was told that it gets very crowded for dinner. Had the jaggerschnitzel (probably not spelled correctly) and it was delicious. Definitely recommend this spot.

When we have "out-of-town'ers" visit, this is where we take then! Sure, you can order a large meal, but why go that way? Go HUGH and see the shock on your guests face when their portion arrives.....I gladly pay for their dinner, just to see their face fill with "Shock-N-awe" at the gigantic portions!!

For people who are looking for great quantities instead of good quality. The portions are huge, but the prices are really too high if compared with the food quality! I would not recommend this restaurant. In Taunusstein there are far better restaurants.

The food was surprisingly good, not just big servings. The atmosphere is really fun with the big chairs and the train station appearance. The only con was the time it took to get our meal (over 30 minutes after we ordered). We had beer so it was fine, but let them know if you're in a rush.

The restaurant was decorated nicely with extra large chairs, tables, utensils, beer mugs etc, a fun atmosphere. The portions are huge, my husband and I shared a large schnitzel with an amazing sauce and fries. I only wish that I had biked to the restaurant or had time for a long walk along the old railway line that runs along... More

Have been going here for several years. While they have huge (really beyond imagination!) and 1ft diameter hamburgers I've stuck to their ribs and also turkey breast and rice with various sauces. Unless you are looking for a blinding amount of food order the smallest portions they have

Giant sized portions! Being hungry is not enough. You should be starving! The portions come in XXXXXL size. They are massive - and they are also so delicious you will feel sorry when your stomach is simply unable to take any more in! The restaurant has a relaxed and happy feel both outside in the beer garden or inside where the décor is rustic and wooden. Friends meet up, have a terrific time and eat to their hearts' content. The waiters are brash, funny and fast. A truly unforgettable experience!
