Grindhaus Sausage Haus in Hollywood is Closing/Closed

PaulF Dec 23, 2011 04:21 PM


I went there once or twice and enjoyed the sausages. But it was too far from my home to travel to regularly.

Never saw much play for it here on CH, but for those who did shop there -- oh well ...

For what it's worth, they were nice guys. I hope the get another shot ...

I like the fresh sausages at the Bob's Market in Santa Monica. I also like the ones at Sprout's Markets.

Haven't tried Wurstkuche in Venice yet ... but that's a restaurant, right? Not a buy fresh and cook at home place.

    Try Huntington Meats in The Original Farmer's Market.

      I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm not surprised. I never quite understood the business model.

      Other recent closures in the area are:

      Cafe Was - RIP
      Village Coffee Shop - RIP
      Shin Korean BBQ - RIP

        Apparently they will be open tomorrow Christmas Eve Day to serve their last sausages. They have 4 types left. Dommy and I will try and get their for our first try since we have been meaning to get there for a year and it hasn't happened.

          Enjoy, hopefully they have some of the duck sausages today or the spicy Italian.

            Might as well throw some of the more creative sausages from Steingarten LA on Pico into the mix. Anyone tried their venison blueberry or their Alaskan elk? What about their wild boar and berry?

              Very interesting, first I'm hearing of this place but it's much more convenient for my WLA location. Thanks for the rec.

          Yes you can buy and cook at home from Wurstkuche, Really good sausages. Uncooked they are sold 30% less than the menu price. My favorite is their Rattlesnake & Rabbit with Jalapeño Peppers sausage.

            Yes, that is probably a good deal since Wurstkuche overcooks their sausages especially the leaner ones

                100% true for both locations... a TRAGEDY because their fries are SO good!!

                  FYI, they dont make their own sausages. Most of them are Saag's brand. j
