Even though this place is a bit out of the way for me, I have been there 4 times in the past month. The food is studpendous, and very reasonably priced. Everything is made from scratch... John even stuffs his own Kielbasi.
My favorite dish is the Potato pancakes (3 GIANT ones for 6.95), seriously the best I have ever tasted (Sorry mom!). And the homemade applesauce increased the level of enjoyment.
The Blackened Prime Rib Sandwich (12.95) was similarly awesome...Blackened prime rib served with balsamic roasted tomatoes, arugula, fried onions, on a ciabatta roll with an apricot sour cream spread on it.
The German Potato salad had larger pieces of potato in it than usual, but the taste was exactly like I remember my great-grandmother serving us in Germany. Absolutely the best German Potato salad I have had in the US.
The Smoked Chicken Wings (10.95) tossed with a sweet and spicy jalapeno plum sticky glaze, and the Gobbler (9.95) fresh ground turkey mixed with smoked gouda and roasted red peppers on a brioche with mayo, arugula, and Roma tomatoes are also among my favorites.
I have had a couple of dishes that were merely good, in my opinion, but that is the worst I can say.
The chef is pleasant to talk to and always accomodating. This place is a true hidden gem.
Just beware, it does close by 7:00 pm.
