California has 6 of the best German restaurants: Yelp
For those who are craving bratwurst, hot pretzels, sauerkraut or schnitzel, six restaurants in California are among the top spots for German food in the country, according to Yelp.
Yelp released its “top 30 German eateries worth traveling to this winter,” and restaurants and delis across the state made the Nov. 30 list, including in Big Bear Lake, Palm Desert, Calimesa, Orange, Stockton and Campbell.
To find the top German restaurants in the US, Yelp identified businesses in the German category and ranked them based on the total volume and ratings of reviews.
The Old German Deli —Big Bear Lake
A small resort city in Southern California is home to one of the top German spots in the United States.
The Old German Deli serves sandwiches, soups, bratwurst and other sausages.
“After eating here, I now understand why there are so many 5-star reviews. The sausages are SO tasty and served on perfectly-toasted buns along with some delightful sides,” one Yelp reviewer wrote.
Sides include sauerkraut, potato salad, potato soup, or split pea soup (only if it’s winter.)
Big Bear Lake is about 100 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
Alps Village —Palm Desert
In Coachella Valley, the Alps Village is another top contender on Yelp’s list.
The family-owned restaurant offers spaetzle, pretzels, schnitzel and other popular German dishes. Yelp reviewers
