We followed the stars on Trip Advisor to this wonderful Bavarian restaurant in downtown. Clean, friendly & knowledge staff, EXCELLENT & filling dinner. The sauerkraut was best I’ve ever had anywhere. Loved the braised red cabbage. We plan to return.

Stopped here for lunch as we were heading down 81. Wife had the Reuben and was good and also big. Cross cut fries were tasty. I had the goulash with a side of spaetzel. All were good. Great stop.

Let’s just start by stating that I lived in Bavaria, Germany for 3 years and this is the real deal. From the Weise Beer to the schnitzel Schmankerl Stube does it right. You must have the Kartoffelcremesuppe,(Creamy Potato Soup) 5 (cup) 7 (bowl). This lightly...More
