If you haven't stopped here for a soft, delicious home-made pretzel then you're missing out! They offer a daily lunch pretzel, stuffed full of good meat, veggies & cheese. The meatball pretzel is awesome (very tender) and the chicken is awesome! Then they have their cinnamon-sugar pretzel (with a side of Nutella if you like) that is the BEST ever! We often stop for one of these on Saturday afternoons as a special treat. Their hours are lunch only, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. and on Saturday you need to get there early as a line starts forming before they open. it's worth the wait. This is a funky little place, has a couple of bar stools at a small counter to eat in, picnic tables outside to enjoy when the weather is nice. They have a nice selection of homemade soups as well - yum!

They make so many different things from pretzels every day of the week that I am amazed. Desserts, snacks and the main course.They usually sell out early, which is a sure sign of a great place to eat. I would highly recommend that you follow them on Facebook to find out what they are creating that day, or on weekends, when they go the extra mile. They also make excellent soup. It is carry out.

I have easily had 30 stuffed pretzels and never had a bad one ever! I forget just to get a plain one cause the stuffed are so yummy! I have had their soups, pretzel buns and chips as well! Get their early cause some sell out right after lunch. Italian beef, gyros, BBQ beef and pulled pork all great!

Stumbled on this gem. Any place that closes when they run out is my kind of place! Means they care to make good food not feed the masses. Bought four pretzels, nothing fancy but hey we're huge and actually reasonably priced. There were more to chose and stuffed ones too-will need to go back for those. Looked like there were a bunch of dipping sauces for an additional charge, but I thought they were very good on their own. Wish it was closer...or maybe I don't... that could be trouble! Will return!

Small place with limited hours. Order inside, and take it to go or eat outside. The italian beef stuffed pretzel was unique, and delicious. Not small either - it is a meal, no doubt about that! Just to have the pretzel alone is worth the trip. Yum! It was one of the best pretzels I have ever eaten. And way better than what you get from any chain at the mall. Gnarly Knots is a must visit.
