When we first moved to Forked River, all we kept hearing from my Uncle was "The German Butcher". You would think he was a paid advertisement for this place. When we finally went, I quickly realized why he bragged about it so often. Anything you want or need could be found here. Not to mention, they have awesome lunch specials... More

This is possibly the best German Deli I have ever been to. I could say a lot of great things about it. They would all be true. You absolutely have to go there and experience it for yourself. I like the home made liver worst and the home made salami. The prepared food delicious, and the meats fresh and cut... More

Being on the west coast now I have dreams of this place. Fresh rye, fresh meats, and all the different 'wursts I could ever want. I came here all the time with my Oma and it's one of my favorite places in the world.

Great German delis are hard to find in these parts of the country, but this is a good one. All the wursts you wool find here except I couldn't find Bockwurst. Everything else is the bomb.

I recently went here with a friend and was delighted with all the goodies! You place your order at the counter, pay, and are handed a numbered stanchion to place on your table. When the food is ready, someone brings it. I had the weiner schnitzel with potato pancakes and red cabbage, and they were all delicious. They put brown... More

The chicken salad is the best I ever had. The lunches are great. The dining area is casual and nice. The rueben is very good and so is the liverwurst. I really like this place. The chicken pot pies are the best. It is a real treat to eat here. They even have great cookies and pastries and pies. It... More
