This is what it is - a great place to get excellent German beer and a snack. German food is some of my favorite food in the world. That is saying a lot. I have traveled to 63 countries. If you want a great selection of German beers, you can get it here. Just don't expect to see Kassler Rippchen... More

I'm partial to what passes for fast food in other countries, so I was happy to find Doener Bistro in downtown Leesburg. It's a small, quirky restaurant worth a visit simply to enjoy the surroundings. There's outdoor and indoor seating, and a small counter (inside) to place your order. The menu features a fun collection of beer as well as... More

One of my favorite places. This is not high cuisine, but if you're in the mood for a good Currywurst or a Gyro and a good German brew, you can't beat it. Throw in the atmosphere in the biergarten and the occasional football match on the television and you'll feel right at home.

Great fast food that doesnt make you feel like you are gonna die when you are done.The fries are also good. A friend had the schnitzel and wasnt impressed so definately get the doner when you come. There are a few German beers on tap which help add to the atmosphere. They also have live music on various nights.

Wanted to try this place out since we spent 3 years living in Germany and loved it there. There were 4 in our party - one had the doner box, one had falafel, and two the schnitzel and pommes. Overall the food was good, but the schnitzel we thought were just OK - pretty thin and a little dry. The... More

Authentic German doners! A 'doner' is like a gyro. They serve a huge one that is incredible. I have tried everything on the menu and it all FANTASTIC! That is no exageration either. I challenge anyone to find better authentic German 'hand food' anywhere! And the German beers they serve are amazing. I'm not much of a beer drinker, but... More

This is very cute and kitchy version of a German street hotdog stand...it does, boardwalk fries, frankfurters, bratwursts, and schnitzels and does have great German Beer. Its basic but tasty if you can afford the extra calories and aren't watching your cholesteral....The manager is German and gives it an air of authenticity. We probably ordered too many treats one night... More

I'm a vegetarian so I didn't have much choice here although everyone I was with raved about the food. I had a falafel sandwich and it was DELICIOUS!! Very impressed that a German restaurant could do that food so well. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant was super cute. The group I was with had come in October... More
