Huller’s Black Forest
Trained in the art of sausage making, German-born Wilfried Huller put his skills to use by opening a butcher shop in 1968. The business expanded into a restaurant and moved its current location, where mugs sing glassy songs in toasts over brimming plates of Wiener schnitzel and spaetzle. A German-style buffet sets forth an endless parade of steam, which hints at meats free of MSG, mixed with fistfuls of spices, and smoked over natural hardwood. Cool suds spill forth from bottles and taps, fueling revelry with honey-hued wheat beers from Franziskaner and Maisel. The onsite butcher shop sends homemade sausages with guests eager to enjoy them in the comfort of vacationing neighbors' kitchens.
