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.

Sides include sauerkraut, potato salad, potato soup, or split pea soup (only if it’s winter.)
