We came here for lunch and had the bratwurst. The place was deserted except for us and a waitress. Since our visit, I have passed by this place at different hours of the day and noticed the place gets crowded during the weekend.

I didn't expect much. In fact I really wanted a typical Mexican meal. I was tired and wanted a quick bite. Well, I didn't find any typical Mexican dishes so I ordered a steak. When in doubt it's a good choice. It happened, to my surprise, to be delicious. Very well seasoned - didn't need even a drop of salt.... More

The food was good but not great. Service was very good and the beer was cold. However, the building itself was far too plain and certainly not at all European in look or feel. That's too bad because the shape and size of the restaurant could rather easily be made into a classic Bavarian cottage which would greatly improve the... More

Four of us tried the German food here and found it disappointing. Having actually been to Germany and eating real German food this was not up to standard. They did not have many standard dishes and the ones they did have were poorly prepared. The best thing they had was the german beer.

Good German food, personally I selected the street sign special which consisted of a nice Bratwust sausage, home fried potatoes, red cabbage, sauerkraut, served with warm sourdough bread, 2 types of mustard and regular butter and beets butter Everything was very tasty, the price for that street special was $75.00 pesos
