I have been to this restaurant on many occasions. The food is good. The buffet is also very good. They only serve Pork schnitzel which is good but I would prefer the real schnitzel that is made with veal.

I like the place they serve heavy breakfast and piced reasonably. But they have to keep the place tidy to be more cozy. The grocery bag sitting in the corner of the room doesn't appeal to me as a place ready for business. Last year,...More

I was here for dinner and discovered they have a buffet for $25 on Fridays and Saturdays. Two pieces of Wiener Schnitzel would probably cost $25 ala carte at any German spot. There is a reason some places can stay open for decades.

The parking lot is non-existent for starters and the washrooms, although clean, are super tiny. This is really a diner atmosphere. That drives the overall rating down unfortunately because the food was really very good, as was the service. They do have a menu but,...More
