Stopped here for lunch as we were heading down 81. Wife had the Reuben and was good and also big. Cross cut fries were tasty. I had the goulash with a side of spaetzel. All were good. Great stop.

The restaurant is typically Bavarian decorated and it is nice to see the waitresses in Dirndls. The wurst and cabbage were my husband’s favorite as the schnitzels were very small compared to those in Germany. The prices are a little high but it was nice...More

We just popped in here for an appetizer and beers. The draft beer selection was a little limited but at least all authentic Bavarian beers and not just commercial stuff. Shared the wurst sampler appetizer. It was a good amount to share. The pork and...More

Not unless it's a special holiday or you have a larger group. But they can get full so not a bad idea either.
