Cheap overpriced food by cheap Germans- I could almost tell workers were not getting enough money for the hard worked preformed by them. If the owners are running that tight- they need to to not show it!! How embarrassing !!

This restaurant is a step back in time. Plenty of comfort food is available. Some items were a hit like the hot bacon slaw, sauerbraten, and potato cake. Some items like the rolls and noodles were average. Their main item, fried chicken, was also average.
