While in the area, we thought we would try something different. It was Friday, it was time for an after work beer and a bite. This location was nearby and we thought it was worth a try. When you come thru the door you come...More

You come there for the surprising food and ambiance, but the sausages are good indeed. And there are also breweries nearby, where to follow-up with good beers. Yet, the queue can be long.

Our first time at Wurstküche: we didn't realize that you don't go in at the main door on 3rd Ave, but, no problem. You queue up out the door on the cross street to order at the sausage counter. Kindly staff take beer orders and...More

Everything is delicious! But those truffle fries are the best thing in my opinion. Its a bit crowded and can be hard to find a seat in its cafeteria style seating but other than that its so worth the visit. Totally worth the money spent...More

A great choice for a casual lunch stop, in the heart of the Downtown LA Arts District (which is rapidly becoming the Downtown LA Condo District). A mindboggling array of sausages, from the usual (Bratwurst, Italian) to the exotic (Buffalo, Crocodile) and a healthy selection...More

Had both the apple/chicken sausage and the Mediterranean lamb and it was terrific. Like a German beer haus; you get what you need. The food came out fast but beer prices were so high I drank water; $7-9 for 250mL is not worth the $.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
