    This place is crawling with drunkeness, first clue not to eat the food unless its to sober up. Bartenders mix good drinks & the door guys are hot. Unisex bathroom probably freaks out tourists.

    Avoid the crowds out front: head inside & straight to the little beer garden out back.

    You MUST have the Erdinger. Delicious. They also have happy hour food specials and a beer garden on the weekends and all summer. I can't pronounce it, but the Zurcher Gschnatzlets is the BEST! Try it!
