This is one of our favorite places to grab lunch after a morning at the Rochester Public Market (or any other excuse we can come up with). It is nothing fancy to if you are even the slightest bit of a stick in the mud you should skip it!
You will likely have to wait in line before being seated at one of the spots at the communal tables. That's right, communal tables. You're going to be eating next to strangers. You will have fun conversations with strangers. You may have to share the bottles of mustard. Its all part of the charm. Waiting in line can be a hoot too. The first time I went with my Husband we waited in line for about 15 minutes. While standing there we chatted with the owner, he offered us a beer and some sausage while we waited and we browsed the shelves filled with German goodies.
When a spot opened up we sat next to some very friendly older gentleman and ordered the yummiest German food I've ever had in the Rochester area. Anything you order will be yummy but my personal favorite is the Jaeger Schnitzel with Spetzle and Warm Potato Salad. OH! And don't forget the mushroom gravy on top! YUM!
This place is the real deal and is bursting at the seems with character and authenticity. Don't miss an opportunity to visit!
**You should note that the location isn't great. Not a lot of parking and the neighborhood can be a bit scary. Park close and lock your doors. We do and have never had a problem.**
