Village Voice's Description

This bare-bones but jolly pub is dedicated to high quality German sausages and beer. Currywurst, a Berlin street-food favorite, here consists of a juicy pork-veal sausage, blanketed with reddish curry sauce, which tastes like equal parts ketchup, barbecue sauce, and Japanese curry. Skinny fries come on the side, and are delicious dipped first in mayo, then in curry. We also liked the pale, mild bratwurst. Non-German sausages are not an afterthought: the lamb merguez is darkly spiced with cinnamon and chile, and the rough-hewn, fat wild boar link is a meaty marvel.

Tips from foursquare

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/29/11

    Try the currywurst ($7). "A veal and pork bratwurst, cut up and served with fries and a homemade, tomato-based curry sauce, is the perfect snack food while drinking German beers."

  • Robert S. on 06/28/09

    Get a currywurst with fries and a beer on tap.

  • naveen on 07/12/09

    get the currywurst (obviously). and get the goat meat as an extra

  • Jaunted on 05/24/10

    The currywurst has a slight, nice spiciness, more than you'd find in Germany. Down some with a glass of Schneider Weisse and get there early in the evening if you want a pretzel. They sell out.

    via Eater: "Many of the sausages served here come from local favorite Schaller and Weber of Yorkville, and the proprietor is from Germany..."
