Great selection of wursts and brews. Try to go during non-peak hours, otherwise there will be a line. My only complaint is that the bread is just ok.

So many type of sausages and bratwurst, with many influences from asian, south american, traditional german, and french cuisine. Yes, they have rattlesnake on the menu (which I did not try). I had the lamb, and the traditional bratwurst, plus we got fries (which are insanely good). Once you order, you go back to the seating area - communal in... More

If you are in Los Angeles and planning to visit the Arts District stop by Wurstkuche for a bite and drink. Wurstkucke is a very lively place with an excellent selection of sausages, sauces, and fries. Warning, when I asked about the hand-cut fries and what made them taste so good the answer was duck fat. The craft beer selection... More

Wurstkuche has a great variety of sausages, some mainstream and some exotic, and big fries done just right with different sauces to go with them. You order at the front counter, then go find a table and they will bring the food to you. The line can get long but just have one of their many beers to drink while... More

Went here while in the arts district. Straight forward menu -- sausage with pork-free and vegetarian options, French fries (or frites), and beer. I had a sun-dried tomato and herb sausage that was chicken and turkey based. It's served in a roll with choices of toppings including peppers and onions. Everything was delicious. There's a large space in the back... More

Love this place! The food is great and there is plenty of it. Wide selection but my favorite is the Austin Blues. White truffle oil on the fries and a cold Aventinus is just what you need right now... go on, I'll wait...

I have never felt the need to praise a restaurant so high, but there is nothing in this world that can compare to the way this restaurant has made me feel. From the amazing selection of beer that I had tried, to the fries and the main dish, the bratwurst nothing fell short of phenomenal. The best part of it... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
