LA Weekly's Description

The restaurant brings in its sausages from artisanal butchers instead of making them in-house, which theoretically leads to flexibility, and the toppings are customizable only insofar as you have the choice of sauteed hot peppers, sauteed sweet peppers or sauerkraut to put with the grilled onions on top of your sandwich. The PETA crowd can get veggie bratwursts, kielbasas or Italian links, the sausage-joint equivalent of the Landlubbers' Platter that used to be on the menu of seafood restaurants, and for the abstemious there is dandelion & burdock, a soft drink reputed to have first been concocted by St. Thomas Aquinas, with the anisey herbal complexity of an obscure monastery liqueur.

    Come for the brats...stay for the fries! When my boyfriend asks if I want to go out to dinner somewhere, I almost always says "Wurstkuche!" It's perfect for a first date or a one-hundred-and-first date.

    As you wait in line to order your food/biers you can peruse the menu and decide what looks tasty. The best part about this is you can order a drink in line and they bring it to... More >>

    This is snausage heaven. It's located in the lovely and barren (the usual hunt for street parking) Art District of Downtown LA. Order your food in line and wait for it to be served to your table. The service is efficient and abrupt. There is also a DJ set up which means some dance and indie beats for ya'll to enjoy while you munch on your juicy and tasty weiners. Yah, I know -... More >>

    Here you'll find some 20 Belgian, German, & domestic beers on tap & the same number of inventive sausages. Round out your order w/ a Filipino Maharlika-it's sweet & savory w/ a snappy natural casing.

    If the hipsters know anything, they know links. Or so it would seem, given how many flock to the downtown joint. Serving craft beers and tasty exotic sausages. [Eater 38 Member]

    The rattlesnake and rabbit sausage sounds off-putting, but if you can get past that you won't regret ordering it.
