Flavor: This place is modeled after the world famous Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany, and is as close as you can get to real German food and beer without actually going there. Hoisting an enormous glass mug is essential, but the food happens to be great, too. Tons of menu items that you don’t have to know how to pronounce to enjoy like the Oktoberfest Schweinshaxe (pork shank with crackling, sauerkraut and bread dumpling) with a few American favorites slipped in for picky eaters.
Flair: Stand on your chair and follow along with the kiddies doing the chicken dance inside. The outdoor bier garden has food and beer, too, with picnic style tables. Great for families or groups of friends. Winner of “Best German.”
