Brats Brothers in the old Max's location in Sherman Oaks?
Went there last night with my wife for dinner. One waitress who appeared harried for the crowd she had and yet the service was excellent. Had the sausage sampler of 4 sausages which comes with a side of grandma's sauerkraut. Wonderful! Also comes with a pretzel which not exactly Oktoberfest was nonetheless very good. That along with a German Beer made for almost an Oktoberfest experience as helped along by the music. I recommend this place.
Yes that is the old Max's site. Brat Bros is doing very well since they moved from their old location, which made the place look like a dive, to this site. They have an expanded menu and changed their business model to include Saturday and Sunday brunch, and have many different kinds of premium beer on tap. In addition to a large bar, they have a central community table as well as tables for 2 and 4 lining the sides. Click their URL for the entire menu.
