The menu is exactly what you would expect given the name. Our group tried a variety of sausages. We especially liked the currywurst, smoked bratwurst and OGBH bratwurst. They serve Hofbrau beers. Nuff said.

My husband and I stopped briefly for brats and beer. Liked this place the best compared to other bar/restaurants on the same street. Had curry wurst and don't recall what the other was but both were delicious

Great beer, friendly service and you get a free lunch when you buy a beer! The food was also very good. Highly recommended.
