This bastion of oompah fun, baron-sized beers and heaping platters of carb-tastic classics brings locals and tourists alike. The lederhosen-clad Brauhaus Trio performs nightly, packing the raucous dining hall with duos who dance zwiefacher-style (think polka with quick turns). Grab a stool at the bar, where the banter is better, the service is quicker and the time between you and your next hefeweizen much shorter.
