Saw another Colorado eatery on Guy Fieri's Diner's, Drive Ins' & Dive's and knew we had to try it - so when we were passing through Brighton on Rt. 85 north, we turned off to find Lauer-Krauts. It was an easy find, a couple rights,...More

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.
