Yes, the schnitzel will be bigger than your head and hang off your plate.
Yes, it will be much tastier (and cheaper) than any food that you'd find at a more central, touristy-locale.
No, you will not regret your decision to come here, and you'll leave absolutely stuffed!
Whenever I hear of someone planning to visit Munich, I make sure to tell them to look this place up. Best schnitzel (and restaurant service) in Munich.
We went out of our way to try the schnitzel here! It was recommended by a local, so we decide to go on an adventure and look for it.
The schnitzel was good, but not great. Sorta tasted like country fried chicken w/o the gravy and thinner.
If you have a party of 3, I suggest ordering 2; Like what most have said on yelp, the "schnitzel will be bigger than your head!"
I suggest first timer to order one set first and decide if you wanna share after looking at the portion. Comes with fries (or wedges) and salat. The portion is way too big to finish alone. :)
The schnitzel is a little dry to my liking. Overall for the portion, the price is well worth :)
Schnitzel.....the size of your plate, but bigger! Plus plenty of other options! This place is a WIN! The schnitzel is not only large, it is also pounded to a perfect thinness, breaded lovingly and fried to golden, crispy, deliciousness, served with either french fries or home fries and a side salad. My meal plus one beer (Augustiner is served here, but they also have a full bar) was €14.00 including tip. It is easy to get to as it is very close to the Theresienstrasse stop on the U2 line.
Steinheil use to be my go-to place for schnitzel. That was a few years ago though. I went back last night and can honestly say that nothing has changed - great schnitzel, full house, good beer and friendly service!
I of course got the HUGE schnitzel with potatoes and savored every bite. I love how thin they get the meat and am sure my leftover half will taste great tonight too.
Good food at a good price with big portions. Just make sure to reserve ahead if you don't want to be one of the people standing at the door waiting / hoping for someone to leave.
This is the place for a schnitzel so big that it hangs off the edge your plate. No joke.
This place is on my regular rotation for something casual, affordable and filling. The schnitzel seems to be the thing to get. Almost every table has a platter, but if you're not that hungry for a huge heap fried meat and potatoes, they have salads, daily specials and other options.
Eat a salad the day before and come here for a crisp, thin schnitzel served up with sliced potatoes or fries and wash it all down with a weiß beer.
There are always people here in this local restaurant so come early if you come with a few other people.
Good place to bring your friends fuer typish deutshes noise, good beer and atmosphere.
Best option is schnitzel and lots of beer.
The Steinheil is a rustic but cozy place and a long-time favourite for students from the nearby university. It is famous for it's large and good Schnitzel but also offers a variety of decent food.
Prices are moderate and it's always crowded, so if you plan to eat with more than 2 people make sure you reserve a table by phone beforehand.
If you are a visitor to Munich and want to check out a genuine local Wirtschaft, forget the Hofbräuhaus, come here. The beer is just as good. :-)
If u where drinking and party the day before this is the best place to go to kill this hunger after drinking :)
The schnitzel are really good and big, the prices are good also.
Cheap and plentiful food. The schnitzels are gigantic. I had a salad with beef and was happy. Not a gourmet place by any means but a solid option for variety in the neighborhood. Augustinerbräu.
The largest & best Schnitzel you will be able to find in the city! Period.
The food is very good for what you pay! Small little restaurant but very nice schnitzels! Worth it
Went here with my wife when we were visiting Munich for the 1st time. It's a little local place away from the touristy areas but definitely walkable. The portions of food are very large. The schnitzel was delicious. Probably at least 2x the size of my hand with fingers spread. The pork joint was very good as well. The roast potatoes were absolutely delicious. They are served underneath the schnitzel so they absorb a lot of flavor. The staff was very nice as well. Seemed like a nice little local pub that the locals meet at to hang around, drink, and have a casual meal. I'm allergic to beer so I can't speak to it, but everything else was nice. It is a small place so seating could be an issue for a big party. So make reservations for large groups. But for couples it should be fine. I liked this place because it seemed like a place with some local flavor of Munich. But, regarding my take on the locality of this place, take my opinion with a grain of salt since I've only been to Germany once.
