Inside the German facade of Laschet's Inn is a little restaurant with all the comforts of home. At the front of the building, occupied by Laschet's since 1971, middle-aged men drink beer and watch sports at the bar. Walk up a couple of stairs and you'll find yourself in the main dining room, where the walls are lined with German memorabilia and the tables are covered in red-and-white checkered tablecloths.
Start your meal with an appetizer (most less than $6). Skip the typical cheese sticks or jalapeno poppers and get into the German state of mind with a little liver pate or herring in sour cream. Move on to a traditional entree, like sauerbraten (marinated beef), a sausage plate or some schnitzel. Just about everything comes with spaetzle, red cabbage or sauerkraut, and almost all of the dishes cost less than $15. Lighter appetites (or thinner wallets) can choose from a selection of $6-$7 sandwiches. Save room for some apple strudel or finish your night off with one of the 12 German beers on tap.
