You can really taste the smoke flavor in the dense smoked pork link.  Note how the bun is grilled, another nice touch.

Three kinds of sausages are cooked on this grill, set up on the sidewalk outside the store: hot dogs, porky German sausages, and chicken sausages.

Seven days a week, starting at 11:00AM, Otto's is grilling sausages just outside their front door.  The aroma is intoxicating!

Jerry Eichetopf told us that this salmon had been caught the day before. Here it is seasoned and ready to be smoked.

Otto's is primarily a meat market. In this cool room hang sausages of various kinds as well as big slabs of bacon ready to be sliced.

While we tend to think of Otto's as the home of great sausages, it also is the source of good meat of all kinds. Here, house-made pastrami stars in a Rachel sandwich.

Even though this mural looks like it should be at a Southern BBQ parlor, it fits perfectly here at Otto's.
