Schnitzel Huber 

Berger Straße 14 40213 Düsseldorf                 [CLOSED]

Situated in the Düsseldorfer Altstadt, this fast food type restaurant features schnitzel, schnitzel, and more schnitzel.  I visited this place for lunch after doing some shopping in the Altstadt.  It was the first time I had eaten German food in Germany and boy, was it delicious!

For the price of €4,95, you can get a (120 g) piece of crispy schnitzel with chives and a wedge of lemon on top.  Plus, you can get French fries and a choice of sauce on the top.  Talk about great value!  Of course, you have to order and pay for the drink separately.  Even though it is a fast food place (they have a front counter with cashiers, like at a McDonald’s), the food is served on a plate on a tray and you have to get your own utensils from the counter.

The schnitzel was crunchy and delicious.  The breading wasn’t fattening at all.  I personally don’t really like using lemon on the schnitzel, but the mushroom gravy I got was somewhat sour tasting.  It had mushrooms and onions in there, but it just tasted a little odd.  Instead of fries, I decided to get the potato croquettes.  I really wished they had mashed potatoes, but unfortunately they don’t.  The croquettes are totally crispy on the outside, warm on the inside with the potato filling.  It completely warms your heart!

I tried the spinach bowl, hoping that it would taste like Boston Market’s creamy spinach.  Instead, you get a small bowl of blanched spinach, flavored with some garlic.  It was a little watery for my tastes.  They need some Boston Market here.

Overall, this place is really nice.  I would definitely come back here for more.  Heck, I would even open a Schnitzel Huber in America if I could…

Summary:

Great value, excellent prices.  Probably the least expensive plate I have seen thus far in Deutschland.  Delicious schnitzel.  Outdoor seating.  Bathrooms downstairs, relatively clean.

Overall – 4.5 stars

  • Schnitzel – 4.5/5
  • Potato Croquettes – 4/5
  • Spinach – 3.5/5
  • Mushroom gravy – 3/5
  • Service 5/5
