Oh my...the aroma when you walk through the their heavily urbanized and unsuspecting front door of smoked meats, sausages, and cheese. I immediately start my "hunger engine" and never ponder the final tab.
We've been patrons of Adolf's since my German mother-in-law introduced us back in the '80's. Back then owned by a German immigrant family and somewhere in the 90's was sold to another family, but of Polish disent. However the high quality never faltered from owner to owner.
A trip in on a Saturday morning is like stepping across the border, I only wish I knew more of their language to interact. Not to be concerned, even with the broken english (not MINE!) you can easily place your order. You might need an interrupter when browsing the small and quaint grocery shelves and freezer section. I usually go by visuals and instinct.
On my most recent visit, I was stocking up for a "MarchToBierFeast" we have planned with friends. Brat's, Worst, jarred Red Cabbage, & fresh Sauerkraut were the key target. However, the fresh breads and slew of other meats and cheeses always get the "engine" running un-throttled! Fresh thin slices Pastrami, Cheeses (names lost), and smoked steak hanging in the open on the wall drove me to the brink. The smoked (aged) steak unbelievable & at $9.99/lb a treat to savor.
