Every Wednesday, the local diner/coffee shop hosts a German-themed night filled with Bavarian beverage and festive food choices. There are about a half-dozen German brews on the menu (in bottles) along with traditional dishes such as bratwurst, schnitzel (chicken or pork), spaetzle, and rouladen.

Our group ordered a nice mix of each, and we didn’t leave disappointed (or hungry; FYI portions are generous!). I compare the food to that of when we ate at Old World Village down in Huntington Beach a couple of years ago. I have to imagine that Rick & Brian’s uses either the same distributors as or actually orders full meals from Old World or the other local Bavarian fun-town of Alpine Village in nearby Carson. I say this as the restaurant hosts many other themed and specialty nights like “South of the Border Thursdays” and Prime Rib Weekends (Friday-through-Sundays).

Of course, T ordered pancakes for dinner as this is what he’s used to ordering when going here. We do usually go for breakfast after all, both for the food and friendly wait staff. You can see a breakfast menu here.

Guten Appetit!
