Stopping in early one afternoon on the way back to my hotel after a meeting, I was greeted by the daughter of the mother-daughter team who run the place and invited to sit wherever I wanted.
|Huge portions of sausage and kraut|
They were out of my favorite - weisswurst - but the Polish sounded good, so I went with that, which came with house-made sauerkraut and a bag of chips. A beer would have made things just about perfect.
While they don't sell alcohol, the Bay 3 Bar, built in an old auto repair bay right next door, does - and guests are quite welcome to bring their favorite beverage back into the restaurant - so next door I went for a $1.75 (!) glass of lager. Not a pint, but easily 12 oz., if not more.
|House-made German potato salad|
If you think you don't like kraut, you must sample theirs; it's nothing like the store-bought variety.
They also make other side dishes in-house, including a German potato salad, which is mayonnaise-free. All the recipes are from the mom's grandmother, who lived in Munich, so they're about as authentic as can be.
The sausages are a combination of locally made links augmented by a few varieties such as the weisswurst, which they import from Usinger's, a well-respected sausage maker in Wisconsin. If you're in the mood for an excellent German sausage while you're anywhere near Daytona Beach, you should check it out, too.
