Our family had lunch here on a Friday and the place was packed. The overall experience was horrible. The guy who’s supposed to seat you was clueless, our waitress wasn’t very good, our food took over an hour, they were out of several food items,...More

This place is the real deal. We had schnitzel, potato salad, and red cabbage. All home made and just as we remembered it from when we were stationed in Germany. I couldn't resist ordering the giant pretzel. Yep, tasted just like the street vendors' in...More

It's always hard to find authentic German food anywhere in the USA; we were really suprised to find it in Texas. Schnitzel, Spatzel, and Rotkohl were great. Beer was also sehr gut.
