    The FRIESSSSS. Thick-cut, crispy, well-salted, super flavorful. The buns are so effin good and the sausages are delicious (obviously). Try the mango-jalapeño with sweet peppers and caramelized onions!

    Try the famous rattlesnake, rabbit, and jalapeño sausage - if not, you can try the Austin Blues sausage instead. Made with smoked pork and 3 types of pepper, it’s just as spicy without being as odd. Read more

    So amazing and delicious. I got the veggie Italian and my friend got the rabbit and snake. Be prepared to wait outside on weekends. Try the dutchess = sour/sweet beer - red ale.

    So amazing. Austin and traditional kielbasa are the winners in my opinion. Get all the toppings on the side. Don't over look a small order of fries with chipotle aioli

    While the place is known for having exotics like rattlesnake & bison, the single best item is the heavily spiced Louisiana Hot Link followed closely by the Hot Italian. Read more

    Everything's bomb! The groot (large) fries are barely enough for 2 people, get 2 larges if you're a French fry fan. The blue cheese bacon walnut fry dip is gourmet good. sodas & beers are delicious.

    Usually a line a peak hours but it moves fast. You can't go wrong with a Hot Italian & spicy peppers (2 toppings is too much in my opinion). Get large fries with curry ketchup & chipotle aioli.

    Try all the sausages! Try all the beers! Expand your palates with pheasant, duck, rattlesnake, and other offerings including a nice variety of vegetarian choices. Enjoy the frites and sauces!

    Order the healthy way and try a bunch of Different Sausages.  Choose your sausages then ask for no Buns and Order Plenty of Sauerkraut and Sautéed Onions and Peppers.

    Must eat the duck and jalapeño hot dog! Trust it! I was scared too. At first I was afraid. I was petrified. Then I also got the Thai peanut sauce with their thick-cut fries. Now I'm a believer.

    Grab a beer in line and make sure you spend the required time considering you options. The brat w/ sauerkraut and sweet peppers will never do you wrong and don't forget a large fries with that order!

    Great selection of odd sausages. The beer selection goes well with everything they offer. The medley of mustards adds some great spice to the sausages.

    I'm a HUGE beer lover! Come get some of the best here on tap... I just Love beer. Trust.. you wanna get wasted and have a good dark beer, make sure you get a Spatten Optimator.. 2 or 3

    Yes, their sausages are delicious, but what we were wow-ed by was their beer selection. Get the Spaten Optimator or La Chouffe (or you can always just spend $5 and get a ton of PBR...).

    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] Read more

    Go for more than one sausage, the ones on the exotics list are really good! Also, be sure to get the frites (I loved the Chipotle Aioli and Curry Ketchup) and treat yourself to a Köstritzer! Yum!!! Read more

    Awesome … Wurst. You order in the small room but there's plenty of space to sit in the back. Just go though the hallway.

    This downtown “exotic sausage grill” features more than 20 varieties of sausage, served with a great array of dipping sauces to match. But the unusual meats are the real draw:

    The best brats and beer in all southern California straight up. This place has a rad vibe too, it is in the art district of Los Angeles right on the boarder of little Tokyo. Incredible beer + brats

    Awesome Belgian beer, really good sausages, and the best thick cut fries in the world(?). Lines are stupid long if you come anytime in the vicinity of a traditional meal hour.

    Duck, bratwurst, Santa Fe, rattle sneak... All tasty! They got a great beer (German and some Belgian) selection! It's lot better than Venice location(they can't cook well).

    In addition to trying an exotic sausage, if you have yet to experience Kielbasa ( a polish sausage) I highly recommend it! And the pesto mayo gives the fries a refreshing kick!

    Good ol’ fashioned brats are only six bucks, while those exotic links—buffalo, duck, rattlesnake and crocodile all make appearances on the menu—run for eight. Read more

    Went for a Bachelor Party, had such a great time. ALL imports, delicious dark beer. Played Das' Boot. Housemade Soft Pretzel with freshly made Mustard. Was insanely good!

    For you true Sausage Eaters, try the Alligator & Pork or the Smoked Andouille Sausages with the Spicy Peppers, Belgian Fries and with a Spaten Pils Beer and you are set. Add Dijon Mustard and you are

    If you are eating in you must get the Floris Apple beer, it tastes like applesauce & is simply divine. I also recommend grabbing some wursts for the grill at home-all the taste & no lines!

    LA [Eat] This place usually has a line out the door with good reason. We go with a seasonal ale and one of their perfectly made sausages. Love its industrial but cozy vibe.

    The sun dried tomatoes sausage is to die for, and the room in the back is super clean and modern. Warning: their water may have cucumber in it.

    Bratwurst w/ caramelized onions, sauerkrauts, & spicy peppers. Belgian fries w/ curry ketchup! Yumms. Highly recommend.
  • Marta T.
    Sausages are delicious and decoration is on point. Honestly the service was not very friendly. When that happens, really just ruin a little bit of whatever is that you're eating.

    LARGE order of the double-dipped TRUFFLE fries.. yummm~!! and you get to pick two dipping sauces.. my go-to sauces are: pesto mayo, curry ketchup, or chipotle aioli.

    If you are a beer person, try the Organic German wheat; Schneider Wiesen Edel-Weisse, and if you want your own stein ask a bartender you can usually purchase one for $20.
