That's spot on about the Birch Run, Bronners, Zehnders loop, Trish.
And I agree, it is too pricey. But considering that (according to their websites) Zehnders sold 840,000 pounds of chicken last year and the Bavarian Inn (their other restaurant across the street) sold 750,000 pounds ... for a total of over 1.5 million pounds of chicken per year, somebody apparently likes the chicken.
Though I have not had a disappointing dinner there as far as the quality of the food - I have been hugely annoyed with the lines and the wait in to get seated ... and occasionally the service when it is very busy.
I won't go to Zehnders during the weekend dinner hours again.
Frankenmuth is definitely not for everyone ... it might be best characterized as old-fashioned, stodgy, Eastern-European ethnic, touristy and a bit kitsch.
I know a lot of people over 50, especially older Germans that still like Frankenmuth a great deal ... and a lot of Poles and also Lithuanians, Czech/Slovaks and Ukrainians who go to Frankenmuth too. (There's a lot of people and Clubs around where I live of these nationalities.)
Frankenmuth also does have a great series of polka, Bavarian and music festivals every year ... And I'm a big polka fan. There, I said it. ;-)
