    Be careful dipping your pretzel, this stuff is extremely spicy! The Rathskeller also has a phenomenal German and European beer selection.

    A must dine while visiting Indy, this Bavarian themed restaurant is housed in a beautiful, ornate structure with moose heads adorning the walls. The jaegerschnitzel is fantastic!

    The Ayinger Celebrator Double Bock is a don't-miss for dark beer fans! Authentic German atmosphere and dishes but plenty of non-German food for any diners who are mostly there for the drink.

    They need to take one of the two tops out of the bar. I have fat dude behind, can't fit in his own space, so I have to put up with his every move Telegraphing into the back of my chair!

    The mustard is delicious, but hot. No, really, I'm serious.

    The bar tenders in the beer garden are frequently wrong about their stock of some of the more exotic imports. Visit the bar inside for the real story.

    Get the hot wurst platte to share! It is a TON of food, so you might not even need an entrée. The mustard is super spicy but tasty! The jaegerschnitzel is delicious as well.

    Best wienerschnitzel outside of Germany. Also, the trick to dealing with the mustard is breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.

    The Germans, as it turns out, know how to make a hell of a crisp brew. Saddle up in the bar attached to this German restaurant, and order from its wide range of unpronounceable German beers.

    For German food, the place is a joke. For beer and good times, it's always a good choice. Stick with the brats though.

    The schnitzel cordon bleu, jaegerschnitzel & regular schnitzel are really great, just different arrangements of toppings/sauces. Very spicy mustard. Bread & pretzels are suberb. Doppelbock to drink!
