We stopped in for dinner and we were very disappointed! After living in Germany for 3 years, I know what good German food taste like and this is not it. We ordered the Doner Box (beef) with fries. The meat was not thinly sliced beef like a traditional Doner would be and it was tasteless. The only flavor came from... More

This is a very small place with a nice patio. Good food that is reasonably priced. Friendly and prompt staff. Great for a short rest when walking around town.

My son brought us here, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Inexpensive, good German food with some Mediterranean thrown in. If I drank alcohol, I'm sure this would be a great place with the variety of offerings. The menu says this, "Adopted By An Alternative Hip Crowd." That doesn't fit me at all, but I still enjoyed and it was a... More

This is a great local hang out. German street food, brews and views of downtown make this a hidden gem of a stop. Don't think, just go experience it and you'll be hooked too.

I've been a few times and enjoyed the food. It is a very casual place with a nice selection of German beers. I like to sit outside when the weather is nice. No onion and peppers for the brats...maybe that is not authentic German? For what customers get, I find this place overpriced. With no toppings and sides, the hot... More

This is one of the most unique spots I've eaten around the world. From the B-17 fuselage that has been reclaimed as a kitchen to the unique beverage and food offerings, it is quite exceptional. We enjoyed the doner sandwich and a brat with currywurst. Doner means sliced meat. The hand held sandwich was on a thick flatbread with a... More

We've been here many times over the last couple of years but the food quality has really deteriorated. We used to eat Wiener Schnitzel here but now what was once a very fresh tasting dish tastes frozen and not very high quality. They have very good German beers & a nice place to sit outside. This is not handicapped accessible... More

What a cool little find. My friend recommended we meet here for lunch and I couldn't have been happier! I was a total newbie on what to order and received great guidance from the staff. Everything was hot and fresh and just delicious - perfect on a cold and rainy day! The mulled wine was awesome too! (is that what... More

One of my favorite spots in Leesburg. The food is always good, but I like going on lamb days the best. Beer selection is huge and ever changing. Last time I was there I had Napoleons favorite beer.

A fun small place to drink German beer and have a German "gyro". Really enjoy the french fries too. Small indoor seating but good outdoor seating especially in nice weather or during Oktoberfest. Historic self contained kitchen made from a B52 fuselage. Check it out!
