Mini-review of this German restaurant in Glendale Heights, Chicago, which we visited today.
- Air conditioning was out, but lots of ceiling fans almost made up for it.
- Atmosphere was excellent. Two old dudes played live music of various nationalities.
- Decor was great. As usual, Milady wanted to stroll off with some of the clocks (she has a thing about clocks).
- Schnitzel was thicker than it should be and greasy enough that we didn’t eat all of it.
- Service was ok.
- Dessert was excellent.
Cost: $55 + tip for 2½ people.
Verdict: An excellent experience was let down by less-than-stellar food.
Bottom Line: Close, but no cigar. This place still holds the #1 spot.
