Try the sauerbraten with the must-have spaetzl (tiny firm dumplings) to soak up the the slightly tangy sauce seasoned with warm, comfort spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, garlic, juniper among the many). I like it paired with red cabbage. This is really great food, in my opinion. And the lunch prices are reasonable.

The sauerbraten comes in a sweet gravy with a definite ginger flavor, with sauerkraut and German potato salad on the side.

This schnitzel, made from pork, isn't really all that much different from the classic Midwest tenderloin.
