Arguably my favorite meal during my last trip to Europe. I had read about the place but had a little difficulty in finding the place but sure enough, the crowds led us to a "food truck" type area where people were patiently waiting for a bite of the amazing bratwursts.

And amazing they were! Thick and juicy, the sausage had a really great flavor. Also, the crusty bread was great too (you grab one yourself from the container near the cashier). And finally, the spicy mustard (with a strong horseradish kick) was one of the best I've ever tasted. Good beer too.

At Fr 7 for a bratwurst, it's really good value for Swiss standards. There is limited seating as well as small tables you can stand around.

If ever in Zurich, do not pass up the opportunity to check out Sternen Grill .. you won't be sorry!

Brats from Sternen Grill are TRULY "the best of the wurst." (They serve rotisserie chicken too, but I haven't gotten around to those yet...)

Choose between their signature St. Galler Bratwurst made of veal and pork, or the Servelat which is a thicker red sausage made entirely of pork. Both are fantastic and served beautifully grilled & piping hot.

Whatever you decide, make sure to grab a "Gold Burli" (a super crusty roll) from the communal bread basket, and DEFINITELY don't forget to take a cup of mustard! It's much spicier than your average dijon thanks to the addition of fresh horseradish. Seasoned Sternen-goers claim you should never need the mustard because the sausage is good enough alone... but I personally LOVE it and couldn't get enough. I even took a chance and asked a worker if they sell their mustard separately, and luckily he said yes! I purchased a tub to take home & enjoy whenever I miss Zurich (all the time).

Lines may be long during lunchtime & there is a separate line for sides & drinks, but don't be discouraged because they move fast! Grab a table or a spot near the lake & enjoy!

So said our 16 year old son, which is high praise indeed! Stick to the wonderful bratwurst and crusty burli, be prepared to sneeze when you taste the essential hot mustard, don't blanche at the SF5 for a bottle of water, and enjoy a true taste of Zurich, for insiders and tourists alike.

Should you decide to give them a visit based in previous reviews - you will find that the house has disappeared. What remains - in an altered american Camper mind you - is the legandary Rosaly's Vorderer Sternen Grill - parken on the also legendäre "Sechsläuten - Wiese" on the otherside of the road.
Thank God they are still open during
reconstruction of the main building. - where would all the Bratwurst Lovers go otherwise? They would all be lost and homeless Locals and Tourists alle.
