Finding Josie's isn't easy. It's a house sitting on the side of East Trundle Road. But, you MUST find it! Other reviewers have lauded this authentic German restaurant and I can't add too much to their reviews. It's a BYOB and when we had a...More

Our 1st visit, already planning next one. Have been hearing good things for many years but never made the time, is now one of my little favorite haunts for traditional food treat. A pleasure.

Loved the schnitzel and potato salad. The market has a lot of wonderful and hard-to-find items. The location is a converted house, so you have to watch for it. I passed it the first time. Run by just 2 folks. Service is friendly but can...More

This is a small operation, but don't let the size fool you. The place has a very casual feel with plastic chairs and only one waitress attending to just a few tables...but who cares?!?! The food was fantastic and everyone in our party of eight...More

Oktoberfest starts on Sept 16 this year so I decided to kick it of with German lunch at Josie's. First, all the food at Josie's is outstanding. Take out and dine-in. This is authentic German fair. "The real deal." I have had several menu items...More

Great German food; authentic and reasonably priced. It was every bit as good as what I have had in Germany and Austria. We greatly enjoyed both the schnitzel and the sausage combination. The decor is spartan and there are only a half dozen or so...More

What an amazing surprise find! Josie's is a mom and pop German restaurant in a repurposed house, but the food is what a foodie dreams of discovering. The food is truly extraordinary, and entrees most are generally $10-14. I've paid twice as much in well-regarded...More

I only get to Josie's once or twice a year, as I live in Pittsburgh. Even if I have to go out of my way when traveling, it's worth the detour. The jagersnitzel is the best I've ever had. Same with the spetzel. And, the...More

Casual BYO gives fancy "pretend German" restaurant a run for their money! This is the real deal! You might drive by every day and not notice it set back from the road but once you have discovered the flavors you'll never forget where Josie's is!!...More
