The food here is really great. Loved the SCHWEINSHAXE (Pork Shank) and the Schnitzel. You must try the Black Forest cake for dessert.

Outstanding flavors. Had expected more of a return to childhood flavors but, although different still excellent. My family is of German descent and I grew up eating this food. Recipes are different but seem very authentic as well as tasty
