can't remember the name of the wiener schnitzel restaurant

Hey guys,

first time posting on here and its sort of a long shot

back in 2008, my brother and I were backpacking around the EU and in vienna we were told from some locals of this schnitzel restaurant, they said was the real local spot and it was amazing

i dont remember the name but i remember the interior was really rustic and there were all these news clippings of government people who always ate there, i remember the bar had a really old fridge that was built of bricks with a really old door on it and the server i think was the son who was a really tall and big guy and his mother was the chef in the back pounding out the schnitzel, the bathroom was also located in the back where you had to pass through dining rooms and it was in a hallway in the building but you passed a kitchen door in the back

they served the schnitzel with a potatoe salad

its a long shot but does anybody know the name?

I was going to name the famous Schnitzel Restaurant in the center, Figlmüller (http://www.figlmueller.at/de/), but it is not really a local spot! Perhaps you can give us more info on its location?

Norman hit it. It is Schnitzelwirt.

You do walk past the kitchen and see a couple women pounding out and frying Schnitzels and a couple small dining areas further to the back.. Not all of them come with potato salad, though. Some some with something else ----- it depends of which variety one orders.

Schnitzelwirt is a "locals" place and is especially popular with university students ---- lots of food for a very moderate price.

Nice, we will try them out, too. Figlmüller was too touristy for me last time I went....

If you had to choose just one, which would you guys recommend Schnitzelwirt or Figlmuller?

I actually prefer the thinner schnitzel at Figlmüller.

I prefer a real Viennese Veal Schnitzerl which both wont offer
