    Authentic German wurst and sausages. Every kind of sausage you can imagine from rabbit, kangaroo, pork, veal, etc. And yes the beer is amazing, though a bit pricy. The duck fat fried fries is a must!

    Try the mini danger dog wrapped in bacon (only $4!) and duck fat fries with chive and garlic sauce. Perfect place for large groups with picnic style seating. They've even got kangaroo on the menu!

    If you need a venue for a birthday dinner then come here. They take reservations. Try and get the corner booth. Great food, great beer, great vibe all around ! Any sausage with duck fat fries !

    Great if you love sausage. Went with a few friends and we were satisfied. They even have vegetarian options! Kind of overpriced if you compare it to street meat though haha the kranjska is my fav.

    Monday night $5 Ontario craft beers! The guinea fowl is my fave - the cheddar in it melts just a little and is perfect. Jalapeños are great toppings, but they're fresh, so pretty spicy!

    The ambiance is great, and the selection of meats is kind of extraordinary. However, it gets pretty busy on the weekends and they restrict entry if the place is full. Call ahead to ask how busy it is.

    Sausage in a myriad different styles, seasonings and toppings. Duck fat, regular or currywurst fries w lots of dipping sauce choices. Kill your thirst 20 taps of rotating craft beers & ciders.

    Sit yourself then order at the cash. Order the large fries to share even the small fries would be good as portion are generous. As for the hot dog there's some interesting choices.

    great ambience and amazing selection of beer. (if youre unsure which one to get you can ask for samples) the dirty duck fat fries are sinful and can fill up four people.
