While visiting family in Chicago during the Christmas holiday we went to Laschet's Inn. My mother is from Germany and an excellent cook so I always hold any German food to her standards. We had the hackepeter for an appetizer (steak tartar). It was served on rye bread with raw onions and caraway on the side. It was a very good portion. I ordered a half portion of roladen that came with one "roll". Without a doubt this is the best I have had other than my Mom's. The dish came with red cabbage and spaetzle. My Mom and sister both had the roladen and my brother ordered the goulash. My nephew who is a picky eater had the potato pancakes. Everyone loved their food. For desert we all shared a hazelnut cake. It was DELICIOUS. The waitress said that is made at Dinkle's Bakery on Lincoln Ave. The cake was not overly sweet and had a fantastic buttercream frosting.
This is not a fancy place but more of a restaurant for the neighborhood or regulars. We saw a group of men at a table by the bar order a gigantic pretzel and beer to watch the game.
I highly recommend going to Laschet's Inn if you want to experience good German food in a casual neighborhhod setting.
