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

Came on a recommendation. Very packed with locals. Plenty of tables adequate parking. Place is reasonably quiet. Ordered corned beef special, onion rings and ice tea. Wait staff is friendly and cute! Sandwich was very good and O rings were great! My host got fries, we shared they were outstanding.

They serve breakfast platters and sandwiches as well as every imaginable lunch sandwich including fried fish. Soups are homemade and very good. Unlimited soft drink bar and an in house bakery window round out the extras needed to complete any dining... More
