      I've never been there, so I don't know if it's GREAT, but there's a German restaurant in old downtown Independence. It's called the Rheinland Restaurant

        Berliner Bear, in KC,Mo
        7815 Wornall Rd, - review from The Pitch (KC free weekly paper)
        http://www.pitch.com/2005-04-21/dining/kraut-pleaser/

        And my mother has told me on one of her visits to KC there's some sort of German deli down around Overland Park, but I can't find it on the Google-machine.

        edited to add:
        here's a listing of German restaurants nationwide. Probably not a COMPLETE list, but quite a few I've heard of in the midwest area.

          OMG - the Berliner bear is right near my house (I live Waldo-ish area!).
          Thanks for the awesome suggestions. I love a good German deli...mmm....veal bologna...so bad, but so gut.

            My reply to podunkboy was removed, for reasons I can guess, but the Berliner Bear is closed as a result of the events described in a later Pitch story. If you do an archive search at Pitch.com, you can find out the reason why.

            I think the deli in question is Werner's on Johnson Drive.

            The last good German restaurant in KC was Emile's German Deli on the plaza, and it was sadly replaced by a Starbucks, years ago!!!
