I stopped here while looking for a place to have a solo lunch. It was Sunday brunch hours and the place was packed and people waiting but no one seemed to mind. I figured this was a good sign.
After a brief wait, a seat opened at the counter and I was able to get a sense of why people are so drawn here even after 100 years in business. The interior was a step back in time with the big wooden bar, tin ceiling and old style dining tables and chairs. On top of that the food was hearty and tasty.
I had a cup of the pea soup which was really excellent and a Papa Fritz sandwich which I asked to have grilled. No problem. I was informed they could fix the sandwich any way I desired. On the counter was a big squeese bottle of Schilo's own mustard which turned out to be a Dusseldorf style and was the perfect condiment for the sandwich. When I left, I knew that I had eaten food that was not fancy but was filling and comforting and which would last me until a late dinner.
I gave this restaurant an overall rating of 4 out of five. If I could divide that, I would say the food was 3-1/2, good but nothing cutting edge. The service was a 4-1/2, really quite good even with a full house and the setting a solid 5. This is a place I will without a doubt visit again.
