“Busy, fun and good prices”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

In Germany pork is king. This is the place to have a great meal. The pork knuckle is tender and juicy with a very crisp skin. The pork saddle tastes like pork filet mignon. The dumplings and kraut are fresh and flavorful. The place is usually crowded so head upstairs where it is still busy but you can get a cozy table and be away from the big crowd. Don't expect 5 star service in this local place but the wait staff is friendly and does a good job keeping up with the fast pace.

“Authentic German food and atmosphere”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We come to this casual old-fashioned restaurant every year with our German relatives. The food is great (have the mixed platter with pigs knuckle, duck and pork along with dumplings!). If you're not into german food, just have the roast chicken which is great. The beer is good and the atmosphere is really fun.

“Trixies”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This was recommended to us by our hostel so we were very surprised when they got it wrong. This place is full of swindlers and by that I mean the hostess. If you read the back of the menu carefully, you will see a note stating to pay only what is printed on the receipt and not what the hostess writes out in addition to your receipt. And boy do they try to charge extra as tips. That should send you a message of what kind of place this is. Nothing's free here especially the pretzels that they bring out before your starter. If you so much as touch the pretzel, you bought it. Don't ask any question about the food on the menu because they will bring out the food that you asked about and say that you ordered it. So make sure you say, I don't want this. I'm only asking!!! The food is absolutely nothing special. I found better food in the Bier Garden. The portion is ginormous. US size portion. The atmosphere is nice, I'll give them that. The hostess is passive aggressive and will huff and puff if she doesn't understand something. I do not recommend this place for the poor service and bland tasting food. Stay away from here. Munich service though I find suspect. I find the service much better in cities like Berlin or Heidelberg.

“Tasty wissewurst, however small beer options”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Good place to try wissewurst for breakfast, and enjoy local beer. Overcrowded by tourist at historical center of the city

“Great selection, noisy, but great beer”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

There are two areas to eat in, with one taking reservations (to the left), and the other for walk ins. The walk in area has large tables seating multiple diners. It can get very noisy in there, but it is a great way to meet people.

I had a dish that contained 3 types of meat: pork, beef, duck, and they were all great. The portions are quite large so order accordingly. The Schnitzel is great also.

The restaurant is attached to the main Augustiner brewery, and there is a viewing window where you can see the huge horses that are used to pull the beer wagon for parades.

Forget going there during Oktoberfest, since it is almost impossible to get in.
