Downtown Austin lunch seekers love our veal bratwurst! I’m really happy about that because I searched long and hard for the best tasting version of this traditional Bavarian lunch food.

However, we have an amazing knockwurst as well. It’s meaty and juicy and it has that famous “snap” when you bite into it. That snap is a sign for a high-quality natural casing which you won’t find on your average hot dog. No, siree.

One of today’s customers ordered both wursts. He wanted a knockwurst with mustard and red cabbage on the bun, and sauerkraut on the side. The veal bratwurst was ordered extra-well browned, with mustard and nothing else. He passed on our fabulous curry ketchup. Here is the pic:

For Wednesday and Thursday this week, we have a special lunch treat for y’all: A German Hamburger Sandwich! Ground beef and pork with spices, egg, and bread crumbs, baked like a meat loaf and sliced on a bun. You can have it hot from the griddle with sauerkraut and red cabbage, but it is absolutely fantastic cold, with mustard and curry ketchup! Sounds like a perfect lunch sandwich on a broiling July day in Austin, eh?

Come see us at Congress and 3rd, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., for a unique Austin lunch meal ($5)!
