Max Bratwurst un Bier - New German place in Astoria

Justpaula May 9, 2012 06:14 PM

I noticed this place on 30th Avenue in the 40s, while driving today. It appeared to be a new place and an interesting addition to the neighborhood - by which I mean the part of Astoria close to my home in Woodside. I am intrigued by somewhere so close to home for this kind of food. Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about it or has any frist hand experience to share. Thanks!

    I should add that I do not drink beer, so I am pretty much just interested in the food. Hubs is a beer guy, so any insight on that end is helpful though, we would only go if the food is good.

      Beer is good traditional German favorites. The sausage, which I had to send back once due to undercooking, was so so. But it is new and clearly they need time to work things out. I'd like to try some of their other plates.
      It's a small place, but works well since there's a lot of light with the fold out windows opened. It's mostly communal seating, which is nice, too. The umpa-music is not to loud and there is a soccer game on the not too big tv.
      Your Hub will love it.
