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.
