This is a small operation, but don't let the size fool you. The place has a very casual feel with plastic chairs and only one waitress attending to just a few tables...but who cares?!?! The food was fantastic and everyone in our party of eight...More

Oktoberfest starts on Sept 16 this year so I decided to kick it of with German lunch at Josie's. First, all the food at Josie's is outstanding. Take out and dine-in. This is authentic German fair. "The real deal." I have had several menu items...More

Great German food; authentic and reasonably priced. It was every bit as good as what I have had in Germany and Austria. We greatly enjoyed both the schnitzel and the sausage combination. The decor is spartan and there are only a half dozen or so...More

Casual BYO gives fancy "pretend German" restaurant a run for their money! This is the real deal! You might drive by every day and not notice it set back from the road but once you have discovered the flavors you'll never forget where Josie's is!!...More

I have to tell you've I've traveled to this area for years and I found this place a few months ago. The Rouladan, Schnitzel, and Hungarian Goulash are the best! They make their own Spatzele...red cabbage. I LOVE THE Homemade Strussel! The dishes are fresh...More

We stopped here for lunch on a weekday and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The Jaegerschnitzel was excellent, the Sauerbraten was too sour for our taste, red cabbage was excellent. Overall we enjoyed our lunch here and it was nice to be able...More
