Recommended to us by a local-excellent value for money. Sauerbrauten and pork cutlet very tender and good. They offer smaller portions which are really regular size for me. Would definitely try again.

Went for lunch after receiving recommendation from a local tour guide. We seemed the only tourists enjoying our meal with locals. If you are looking for a local schnitzel or sausage with sauerkraut this is a very good choice.

Stopped by for lunch here at 1415 and was "greeted" by a rude old lady who snapped "no menu", and then turned and continued eating her own lunch. I understand the place might stop serving lunch at 1400, but that's no excuse to treat customers rudely. Have a nice life Mrs. Sunshine!!

We enjoyed our dinner tonight. My steak was quite tender and my husband enjoyed his pork chop. Nothing fancy but quite reasonable at 27 euros including one large and one small beer. NOTE: cash only.

you must enter the front door before you realize what a delightful typical restaurant/gasthof this is. The staff is wonderful and the couple who own this are delightful. This gasthof offers either a klein or grosse plate which is wonderful for a lighter mid day meal. However even the klein is more than enough food. The meals come with salad/fries/... More

great traditional German food served hot, quick and casual. community seating and individual tables. I had the schweinbrauten and it was excellent. noting fancy. lots of locals eating there. would eat there again. Probably the most inexpensive full dinner we have eaten in Germany. the taste , quality and quantity was second to none. An excellent value.

Zum Ochsen is run by an old couple and is a popular place for locals to eat. The old lady who serves the food is a classic old german woman who doesn't smile much. The food is as German as it comes and is priced good as well. Our party of four all really enjoyed our meals.

we went at the end of March 2012. We didn't know where to eat so we followed a group of local guys, who ended up at this restaurand. I think we made the best choice available! Great food, nice and cozy atmosphere, friendly service, cheap bear. I would certainly eat there again at my next trip to Rothenburg o.d.T.
