This place has become a bi-monthly, after-a-long-week-of-work kind of spot. I go for the rabbit & pork sausage, almost always, as well as the vegetarian italian. I'd say go for the pesto mayo or chipotle aioli (or both) dipping sauces for your fries and you will not regret.

Awesome and wide variety of sausages and German beers. Popular Gastropub that is great to take friends and have birthdays at!

After eating a bunch of meat and drinking, try their ice cream cookie dessert to top everything off.

Awesome spot for a variety of German beers and sausages. A popular place with great music, but totally worth dropping in. And their fries are on point, especially with the variety of sauces they offer for pairing.

Order at the counter, find a table, then food gets delivered to you. I like this system a lot especially when going with a big party.
On my recent visit with some co-workers, I got to try the Austin Blues- hot and spicy, tri-pepper & hardwood smoked pork, louisiana hot link - beef & pork, onions & hot spices, and a small order of fries. The sausages were juicy and very flavorful and the bun and toppings all went together very well.
I like the establishment. It has an industrial feel. There's several communal tables, an outdoor seating area, and plenty of bar stools. I noticed that they had a big selection of beers on tap. I didn't get to try anything since I came during work hours.
The complimentary cucumber water is fantastic and very refreshing!

Delish sausages from veggie eggplant to spicy Italian this place has them all! Seems small and almost unnoticeable from the outside but the inside is nice with a full bar and the best Apple Beer I have had in a while. If your craving a great dog and fries come on down.

Brats and beers in a great room - they have DJS at night and you can draw on the tables...

As you're driving down Lincoln, passing through Venice, you might never notice this place. Wurstkuche storefronts remind me of a warehouse and their decor is somewhat industrial feeling. Turn onto Vernon Avenue to find street parking in the neighborhood, which is almost always available.

As for the food, they specialize in sausages - everything from a classic bratwurst to exotic selections like their Rattlesnake & Rabbit. There are even vegetarian selections for non-meat eaters. Complement your meal with their Belgian fries, which are great dipped any one of their many sauces. You can even add white truffle oil glaze if you want an extra boost of flavor.

They give you a number that is this metal contraption, and then off you go through the narrow hallway to the dining area. It definitely looks like this used to be a warehouse, with the brick and high windows that don't let passerbys see inside. Benches line the room and you can choose a more communal meal in the center, or find a spot along the wall.

Loving the big room!!
Feel like you're in a big sauna room minus the heat . Brick walls, dimmed lights, cabin like. You walk in and it feels like a little meat market with the sausage refrigerator by the door. Pay for your order and get your number.. Then walk into a black narrow walkway and the big room is hidden away all the way in back.

The french fries are very good! They are like huge chunk of steak fries with season salt. The Rattlesnake/rabbit dog although was kind of bland but didn't taste funky at all.. lol! The buns on the other hand was below average. It got soggy with all the peppers on it. Got the aioli dipping sauce with it. Pretty creamy and good.

Unfortunately, I still prefer Dog Haus in Pasadena. Can't get that craving out of my system. BUT I still will be back here to try the other flavors because my friend lives close by and this is one of her favorite hang out place to grab a beer.
Kudos for late hours. Parking on the street may be hard.

Overall rating for this place is 3 and 1/2 stars!

I wasn't too impressed with this place. Pay $10+ for a sausage? NO TANKS. Miso Media across the street doesn't serve food but they're sooooo much cooler!
