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

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 $.

Awesome selection of exotic sausages, beers and vegetarian options. Service and atmosphere was great, but the french fries are the reason I'm writing this review! They're so good and the ketchup is great.

When you really miss Germany, this is the place to come to! The beer and sausages wont disappoint. To top it, the seating area with wooden benches takes you right back to the English Garden in Munich! We tried the Rabbit, rattlesnake, chicken and turkey...More

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
