If you want basic German fare for a great price, you need to check out Schweine Janes. Everything was extremely tasty and supported by friendly and fast service.

Found this on Trip Advisor and completely agree with those other 5* ratings. Great value, great grilled pork shanks, delicious chips and laid back atmosphere. Highly recommended.
