    Welcome! Make sure you get the white truffle oil brushed onto your Belgian fries (as previously suggested by a fellow LGKer).

    Also, should mention that if the line is too long to bear at Wurstkuche, Urth Cafe is right around the corner and has a freakin incredible curry/chicken salad sandwich. Their turkey burger is spectacular as well (hard to imagine I would write a sentence like that about a turkey burger... but it's true!) Anyway, different thread for that place coming soon.

    I had the buffalo sausage and it was delicious! I've been meaning to come back there for quite some time!

    My buddy/boss went there and gave me his impressions. So take it for what it's worth.

    First off, I don't know how exactly to pronounce the name but my friends have taken up calling it "worst coochie". Having read their menu I see they have a great selection of beers, however my buddy said they're damn expensive (compared to some bars we go to) and that the size of glass was pathetic (he stated it was around a 6~8oz serving, which, if that is accurate, truly is pathetic). He only had a small portion of the snake (I think) sausage but said it was quite good.

    But here was one of the main sticking points for him. Some won't be bothered by this, some will, and some will be bothered that we're bothered, but anyway...he hated the atmosphere. The word he used most often was "yuppy". He hated the design of the place, saying it was as if they tried to make a trendy beerhaus. He also was quite put off by the clientelle, saying there was a large amount of hipsters, yuppies, and clubbers there. I don't know about you, but those are the kind of people I want kicked the eff out wherever I go.

    Having said all that, I'd still like to try the place out. Hell, any place that serves German food and beer is a place I'd like to know about. But I'll just make sure to try and contain my rage when I'm engulfed by hipster douches.

    Monday. Lunch. I may explode.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Do you like your boss and value his opinion that much? Because, frankly, he sounds like a douche himself. People are people. I could not tell you if someone is a "hipster" or a "clubber". People just look and act like people. Period.

    Back on topic- I had the Kielbasa and the Rattlesnake/Rabbit sausages yesterday to celebrate my review from work. Both were topped with sauerkraut (a 'must' in my world) and spicey mustard. My thoughts on the Rattlesnake/Rabbit are it is surprisingly mild, even though it is seasoned with bits of jalapeno. In fact, I went so far as to make a piece that was just the bread and sausage on this one (no mustard/sauerkraut) so I could get a real taste of it. Excellent. Absolutely great.

    THAT said, I do indeed have a new favorite for the traditional offerings- the Kielbasa! Smokey, meaty, a nice snap to it, spicey, great flavor. Out of all the 'traditional' sausages I have had off their menu, the Kielbasa is the best. I should probably do one more cross compare with this one and the Bockwurst, but for now, the Kielbasa wins.

    Beer wise I started with a glass of Belgian Le Chouffe but then graduated to a litre mug of Erdinger Dunkelweisen. I... well I was not walking straight when I left the place. Great living close by I guess!

    Still think the Alligator/Veal is their best sausage.

    There's two bars in there, the one in the dinning hall is very quick. Anyway the place is awesome, the guy I share season tickets with is one of their beer reps. The Louisianian Hot Link is amazing! 20 + different sausages & 40 + craft beers, you can't go wrong.

    I've been meaning to answer this but for some reason either keep forgetting or never have the time or means.

    Anyway, to sum it up, yes, I do value his opinion. Apart from being my boss, he's also been a great friend to me for over 20 years. He has cooked me and my buddies some fantastic meals and he's a closet foodie. The man has gone out of his way on many occasions to treat his friends well.

    I honestly appreciate your democratic view of people, but I think most of us can relate to being around cliques or segments of society that we don't care for. You don't have a problem with the clientelle there? Fine. I may (never been there, so I can't say for sure). It won't stop me from trying the place but it may stop me from being a regular there.

    I went here today, or rather yesterday. I came in for lunch so it wasn't really crowded but there were still a good number of people there. I got 2 sausages, the alligator/pork and the rattlesnake/rabbit plus a small belgian fry. The alligator one was a little tough but had a good flavor. But I really loved the rattlesnake one. It almost melted in my mouth. I thought the fries were a little salty I don't usually like crispy fries but I liked these. I also had a Spaten Optimator & a Spaten Oktoberfest. And the drink sizes weren't small either. They were in mugs that had to be near 16 ounces. When I was up at the bar I asked the bartender how to pronounce the name & she said Ver-stoo-kah, or something like that, I'm not exactly sure. Actually while I was at the bar they kind of screwed up and threw away my food even though I'd only eaten about half of it. I asked the girl what happened & she thought I was done so she cleared my space out. When she realized that she screwed up she apologized & told me she'd refire what she threw out. So I got a new rattlesnake & fries. She even upgraded the fries to large & gave me 3 sauces - the chipotle aioli, the bbq, and I think the blue cheese one. That one I really liked. So what could have been a sucky situation actually turned out pretty good. I definitely want to come back soon but I probably won't be in downtown LA for a while. Another reason why I miss living in LA although I don't miss the traffic.

    Don't know how to describe the pronounciation so that you guys get it right, but if you're interested in looking intelligent while at the place (and maybe impress some of them waitresses ) try these links:

    The little blue arrows on the left of "Wurst" and "Küche" play audio files of the correct pronounciation .
