      No, never been. Just thought it might be of interest to some.

        Houston Press did a review of the place last week.

        Friends in Pearland love it but I have not been. My friend from Germany says it's good but not as good as her mother's. It's on our list of places to try

          Have been several times and always have a good time. They have some very good German food, and the time we have been they also had live German music.

          I could swear I saw Doobs and Other Brother Darryl suggest a meet up here recently, but can't find it. Anyhoo, I ended up in the Land of Pears today and stopped in for lunch. Stupendous! The garten is lovely and has these moving panels that surround it and allow them to regulate sun and breeze. It also has fans and a/c units high on the ceiling that would provide for comfort during hot months. But today was very lovely and no need for that. The food was great, I had a 1/2 chicken schnitzel a spicy cheese sausage with two sides of your choice. You can also choose from a plethora of sausage types, made in house. Low carb friendly too! Tremendous beer selection. I was with one other person and we had a great time, super friendly owners. I could see a party here. I wonder how close a hotel is to it though, because driving home might be unadvised after too much Stiegl Lager! We will definitely be back and the suggested meet-up sounds like a plan, Doobs and OBD.

            That's a half a schnitzel? Wow, a whole would cover the plate. What were your sides?

              Just saw this, some of the posts get hidden with this new format. Yes the whole took the whole plate! And this was chicken, but they also had pork. These sides are sauerkraut and spaetzle. The spaetzle was griddled and crunchy on one side. :0

              I think Doobs suggested it as an appealing possibility, but exact plans never materialized.

              I'm all for it, though.

              Is there an inside dining room that will be air-conditioned when the worst heat of summer arrives?

              Because if not, might be smart to have a meet-up there sooner rather than later.

              If you know what I mean and I think you do.

                I do, HA! But they do have a/c units in there and fans, and housing about the garden. The inside is small, and not great for more than 4 people.

                  I think I suggested it on the Aldi thread when I thought that only the Pearland store had opened.

                  I pitched it as a "two-fer".

                  I would still be up for the hitting the Biergarten sometime though.

                  However, we need to chip in for a stretch limo, (or at least a van), so we can all properly sample the various offerings.

                  (Barring that, someone has to volunteer to drive *ME*!)
