Had the fried porkchops. Was excellent. The pork is juicy and good part of the ribs to make it tender. Also had the green sauce with eggs and potatoes. It was awesome. Good to try in frankfurt. I like the green sauce.

This place is wonderfully unpretentious and you'll find an eclectic mix of people here from retired people to students to guys in suits. The menu is pretty small and only classic local dishes. I had the leberkäse with potato salad. Very simple but tasty and...More
