I was able to visit this delicious deli with my bosses and coworkers and it was amazing! The entire staff was incredible! The root bear is beyond amazing (and I hate root beer, but this one is different). The Pretzels were amazing and the Ruben sandwich was incredible. I can't stress enough how amazing this deli is . I always... More

Been coming to SA for years for work and finally got around to trying this place out. It was good and cheap. The best thing about it was the biscuits! Yum!

Came here for breakfast while in town for a convention. My friend and I split our orders of biscuits and gravy and French toast. The food was honest and simple, price was great. Service was friendly and kitchen was quick. Definitely what was needed. No big frills, no big bills. Just good breakfast and good people.

This is delicious German food in the heart of all the Mexican restaurants. You do not want to miss it! All of the food is made with the same recipes from 1917! Every thing is delicious, especially the split pea soup!

Was very busy when we visited on a Thursday afternoon. However, the root beer was amazing!! I would definitely return again for the root beer alone. Highly recommended.

Today is the first day of Lent and a day of fasting without meat according to my faith tradition. So I had a bowl of their split pea soup with a slice of dark rye with a mug (with refill) of home-made root beer for $7. There will be other days to enjoy their Reubens and German-style sausages, but this... More

We were looking for a breakfast option that beat the hotel prices and found it here. It is a cool old building offering a big menu at reasonable prices. Our server was pleasant, but got both our orders wrong. Still. if you are feeding a bunch, or just want breakfast for a normal price this might be your place.
