    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 !

    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!

    Duck fat fries fantastic. Animal fat gave superior flavour; big portion too. Thick cut & crispy enough (like British chips, but bite from duck fat made up for it). Garlic chive sauce was delicious.

    There're more types of sausages here than you can shake a stick at. In the category of game alone you get exotic choices like venison, bison, wild boar, rabbit, kangaroo, elk & guinea hen.

    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.

    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.

    Bison sausage is really original and tasty. The whole place and food really reminds me of Berlin. Good work!

    No matter what else you order, go for the duck fa fries with it! Ranked 4 in Best TO restaurants for a quick bite: http://jamiesarner.com/toronto-life/2016/06/downtown-toronto-restaurants-quick-bite/

    Don’t care about duck fat fry, but all ordered sausages were really really good (l’m an eastern-europe-girl). Try your sausage in currywurst style: tomato curry sause gives very interesting kick to it

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    I got the Kaas on a bun. It was great but I tried the traditional (Oktoberfest w/ Currywvst) and it was better. Get the duck fat fries 🍟 dirty style!

    Wild Boar sausage: tea gave unusual flavour that worked. It wasn't too gamey either. It came with a bun which was a toasted mini baguette, not your normal hot dog bun.

    Be a man or a hearty woman and get a masse of beer. It's like drinking and going to the gym, just remember to switch drinking hands every so often.

    The chorizo sausage with jalapeños will erase your childhood. Jesus will come down from heaven and wipe the sweat from your brow. Then your face melts off.

    Their game sausages are definitely worth trying it, and get it on a regular toasted bun. The country bread in currywvrst is really small.

    Nice vegetarian selection with gluten free vegetarian options (all meat sausages are gluten free), but no gluten free bun. :/ Duck fat fries mmm

    This place is a gem. Great environment, amazing service and food! Duck fat fries are awesome, and so is the bison blueberry maple sausage.

    Great selection of beer but the food isn't too great. Overcooked and over salted duck fat fries and super fatty hot dog.

    Duck fat fries are a must! And no, they don't taste like duck or resemble anything to do with duck. Just absolutely delicious, especially with the chive dip!

    If you're South African, don't order the Boerewors-it's not authentic. But the beer and the vibe is fantastic!

    Get the sausage on a toasted bun with your toppings of choice, much better than the currywvrst. And definitely get the duck fat fries.

    The service is slow, it's expensive, the beer pours are chintzy and I still can't get enough of the delicious sausages these crazy krauts keep concocting.

    Duck fat fries were underwhelming - not as crispy as i expected although the wvrst sauce was delish. Bison sausage & beer selection were great - just not sure if they were worth the pretty hefty price
