Soup is amazing!!!! Kraut burger and sausage are good. And service was quick and friendly. Need to update prices on trip advisor. Prices have been raised slightly but still very affordable.

This is the closest to Gramma's cabbage burgers that I have found, brings back so many great memories for me. Great to share with family & introduce to friends. Thank you for keeping an old German recipe alive!

Good Kraut Burgers (what we called bierocks when I was a kid). A treat to see and eat these old world recipes. Good soups and desserts that change from day to day. Nice people. Simple and comfortable. Have eaten here more than once and I will be back.

I have always loved Kraut burgers, but I always made my own until I discovered this place and it's much easier to buy them than to make them. They are so good, and you can eat in or take out. The people that work there are so nice and friendly. Give them try if you haven't already.

This was my first visit to the great little spot. The food was good and fresh. The prices were super affordable. And beat of all the small town feel, service was great the other customers were chatty. Overall great experience!

Our daughter loves the soup/chili while I wait for carry-out. My husband is from Polish ancestry and the Kraut Burgers are akin to something his dear Mother used to make. The bread is sweet and the cabbage just perfectly tender. It's terrific, but I go to make my husband/daughter happy.

and they're....OK. Filling is tasty and fresh, but the huge pastry-like bun makes the whole thing heavy and doughy. I'm glad I sought it out and tried it, but I wouldn't make a detour or special trip to have another. I will say, they have a nice, clean, retro atmosphere and very friendly staff.

I love the Kraut burgers at this restaurant! You can buy a bunch and they freeze great! If you like German Kraut burgers you will love these! They have plain, American and Jack cheese!

Thank Kelly S
