I have been living in Brighton for two years and have been wanting to eat here. I finally made it and I really liked it. Be prepared for a wait though because this place is popular. The staff is so friendly and helpful and they get the food out as quick as possible. There is very little seating so expect... More

A friend and I had lunch here. The staff is warm and friendly. The food is homemade, which I love. I have two suggestions: more meat in the burgers and ice for the drinks. I would hope she is doing well enough to expand her offerings a little. The simplicity is quaint, but a glass of ice would be delightful... More

Fun! Interesting, albeit small menu. Only three tables inside. Kraut Burger was unique and tasty. Soup excellent! German Chocolate Brownie divine. The restaurant features a soup and dessert of the day. Kraut Burgers were featured on Diners, Dive-ins, and Dives. Having seen the show, we knew what was going on in the kitchen. What fun!

My kids and I took a short trip to Denver over the summer, and when I saw this place on Trip Advisor, I knew we had to go. We were not disappointed. The food was fresh. The service was amazing. The staff and their regulars made us feel like we were part of the town. I appreciated the whole experience.... More

One of my co workers sister owns this place, and he was always talking about it to us. I finally tried it! Very delicious! I had one of the Lauer Kraut sandwiches with sausage in it with a bowl of soup. I was very full after!!! The staff is very friendly. It is off the beaten path, but worth it!!... More

I felt like I was back at my German Grandma's house! The soup was hearty and delicious. The dessert (bread pudding) was amazing and could have fed at least 3 people, as two of us shared and had leftovers. The kraut burgers had too much bread for me, but tasted great with the mustard selections.

Amazing that is the only word that comes to mind. I live here in town and it is nice to know I can call them at 7am if the mood strikes and order the Kraut Burger cold and pick it up on my way to work for lunch.

Soup is amazing!!!! Kraut burger and sausage are good. And service was quick and friendly. Need to update prices on trip advisor. Prices have been raised slightly but still very affordable.

This is the closest to Gramma's cabbage burgers that I have found, brings back so many great memories for me. Great to share with family & introduce to friends. Thank you for keeping an old German recipe alive!
