We love be Lauer Krauts. They are always friendly and have great service. We always get it to go, but over the summer I heard someone at the tables recommend the honey mustard. I’m not a huge mustard fan, but it was amazing! Highly recommend!

Lauer kraut burger with American cheese was excellent. Great flavor, in a pastry crust- not your typical burger. German potato salad was also fantastic. Hard to find - about 200 ft south of Bridge st, east side of 6th Ave.

First time for Kraut Burgers. An interesting concept of ground beef crumbles with sauerkraut, onion, cabbage encased in a heavy crust of bread/pita-like bun. It was a tasty combination with the in-house sauces. Nice family environment with friendly service.
