Tiny, but very cute restaurant. Great food and a lively crowd. Had several good beers on draft as well as very interesting menu items.

This place is a fun get away from all the larger over the top restaurants in our area. The food is pretty good, but not quite excellent. I've only visited this place 5 times, but it's always been a very good experience. It's nice to sit outside when it's warmer out, but the inside is equally acceptable. I've also called... More

Found this place on Roadside America. Limited indoor seating lots more outdoor seating. German Beer selection. It was too chilly to sit outside, plan to return when the weather is warmer to try more items on the menu and sit outside

This is a great local haunt. It is a must stop for authentic German street food, beers and fun. If you like to eat where the locals do then this is the mighty tiny kitchen that offers up big fun flavor. You'll be hooked.

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
