Schmidt's Bahama Mama Sausage

Schmidt’s Sausage Haus: If you, like me, have any German ancestors you have to check out this place and see what German food is all about, sausage. This place opened originally as a sausage packing house in 1886 and then in 1966 they decided to open up the restaurant. So you will be hard pressed to find a place with more tradition and authenticity in serving good German food.

For the sausage lover, like me, you have to take a ride on the Autobahn, which is Schmidt’s sausage buffet and get your fill of sausage and fixings on their sausage buffet. Be sure to try their house special, the Bahama Mama which is made of secret blend of hot and exotic spices meant to take your taste buds to the Bahamas. Now this is a place that knows what a good sausage is made of.

On the Autobahn, officially called the German Autobahn Buffet,  you can eat all the sausage that you want and since nothings goes better with sausage then some red cabbage and sauerkraut, be sure to pile it on. They even have sausage stew, I am going to have to try some of that since I have never had it before. When I go I will have to remember to save some room for dessert since this place is also famous for their ½ LB cream puffs that you can get in flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, and peanut butter fudge which sounds like some Crazy Eats that I want to try.
