Extremely characteristic place!! Good selection of sausages and meat (boiled pork is delicious), apfelwein (kind of sour wein of apples) is a must
The place is quite cheap and the service play around being a little rude with foreigners (even if always kind).
It is possible to meet new people since the seat is free.
Got boiled Meat? If you're a meat lover you'll love this. I am however not a fan of how they cook their meat (boiled). Limited sides to choose. They are a famous apple wine cider and at first tasted great but after taste ed hard to get past. Many locals come here and this is a great spot to enjoy a Frankfurt meal. Would I come back for the food? Unfortunately no it was not my thing at all :/
One of the best meals I have ever eaten and in a friendly surrounding. We had a shared platter for three which had many different types of Wurst (including a fantastic Black Pudding style sausage), a stupidly tender inch thick pork chop and a falling off the bone ham haugh.
We also had the handkasse musik, a semi hard local cheese with vinegar and freshly chopped onions and sampled the many different local beers and spirits.
Given the sheer number of rotund gentlemen with elaborate moustaches (all of whom were 100% Frankfurt locals) , we came to the conclusion that the guy who wrote the negative review of this place claiming it to be "touristy" must be more of a boorish, braying asshole than his picture makes him out to be,
The service was of particularly high quality by which I mean the waiter was attentive when needed (made regular trips past the table to see how we were progressing) and invisible when not needed.
Tasty food, big portions, quick service and moderate prices. 10 euro for the main course. A lot of locals.
Basically almost a twin of the more famous Wagner which is right next door. Same food, apple wine, and atmosphere but easier to get a seat. Very hearty Frankfurter fare for reasonable prices. Visitors to Fft should try Gemalten Haus, or Wagner for a boisterous apple wine tavern experience.
The apfelwien was mediocre and they brought us our bill before we asked for it... VERY touristy
