Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 September 2015

My wife and I stayed near the Stadtwald for several days and explored the dining options on Dürener Straße throughout. Hans im Glück caught our attention with its modern, funky decor and the crowd of people visible through the mostly glass shop front. Having eaten almost exclusively German cuisine throughout our vacation, we rationalized that a return to American food might be a welcome token of familiarity, and I am pleased to say that Hans im Glück did not disappoint.

The interior design might not be for everyone, with chipboard-like flooring, felt mats on the tables and benches, and slender birch trunks demarcating booths, windows, and walkways, but we thought it unique and engaging. The raw, natural decor underscored the stated intent of providing food from simple, quality ingredients, and the casual dress of the wait staff made the experience feel unpretentious and welcoming. The view from our upstairs booth near the windows gave a nice panorama of the intersection below.

While the beef portion in a standard burger left something to be desired for my American appetite, the presentation and taste were excellent. This is far from the greasy fare that one might expect from a burger restaurant. I would judge the meal options a good value for the money, with extensive options for customization. As we left, I distinctly wished for more time in Köln, so that I could eat here again. Highly recommended.
