The gastronomic artists at King’s Biergarten & Restaurant stock a German and Austrian menu full of Himalayan-salt-spiced delicacies, including sausage that infiltrated the Houston Press’s 100 Favorite Dishes. Encased ground sausages boast varieties such as traditional parsley and garlic bratwurst, pork-infused weisswurst, and gooey, hot cheese sausages, much tastier cylindrical eats than pizzas delivered via pneumatic tube. Signature wiener schnitzel rests inside golden breading, and signature sides fill in appetite crannies with shredded sauerkraut, spaetzle, or crimson-red cabbage. Layers of diced apples or cream-cheese studded with raisins fold into flaky strudel and plunge into a pool of homemade vanilla-maple sauce like Candy Land’s Olympic dive team. Guests can weather the chillier months without sacrificing views on a fully enclosed and heated outdoor patio.
King’s Biergarten and Restaurant
In 2011, King’s first year in business, owners Johann and Philipp Sitter had to expand his space from a 40-seat dining room to a 200-seat restaurant and beer garden. The customer response aligned with the press response: That same year, Houston Press included King’s sausage sampler on their list of 100 Favorite Dishes and in 2012, GermanDeli.com voted King's the Best German Restaurant in America. They were excited to find the restaurant served “the kind of hearty yet fresh sausages and schnitzels that Houston has long lacked,” and singled out the weisswurst for having “the texture of sifted pate, light and airy.”
In addition to meals built from family recipes, patrons can revel in an extensive selection of German brews. Beer tour samplers allow guests to sip on four or all of the draft beers, but those ready to commit to a single draft can sign a marriage certificate for a 3-liter das boot. Thursday through Saturday, groups can listen to live music from German house bands on the beer garden.
