“Unexpected surprises on the menu - try the veal schnitzel”
Review of Thirsty Bernie

Thirsty Bernie
Ranked #386 of 905 Restaurants in Arlington
Cuisines: American, German
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 13, 2011

This place does not have your usual standard pub grub. While you can get good old fashioned burgers and wings, I'd suggest you try some of the other options - there is a definite german / austrian / hungarian influence to their offerings. I had the veal schnitzel which had a pickled cabbage on top of it and while I would probably not normally mix the two, the combination worked well and the schnitzel was as good as I've had anywhere. Not a 'cheap' place but not too bad either. A good assortment of beers on tap and in bottles. Liked it a lot for a local strip mall venue.

Was shocked to find that the restaurant has price points equivalent to Las Vegas, Paris, and Manhattan. The restaurant in located in a strip mall in Arlington adjacent to Glebe Rd. There are multiple large flat screen televisions. Be aware of the "specials" as they are even more pricier than regular menu items but mean they are new to the restaurant. I'd recommend the other neighborhood bars/restaurants.
