A Bit of Germany just a bit good

A Bit of Germany, a tiny little restaurant on the corner of Mount Vernon Avenue and Flower Street, featured mediocre food and pleasant service.
At about 12:50 just after lunch began, I went down to A Bit of Germany to try a new meal. I entered a tiny little restaurant that looked as though it used to be a house.
I was greeted upon entering by a waitress who had a smile on her face and showed me to a booth. As she gave me my menu, I noticed that she was wearing a traditional German dress that looked like it should’ve been in a movie.
I also noticed that the restaurant was not extremely clean, it seemed as though everything was old and the atmosphere was a bit muggy and a little thick.
The waitress took a while to ask what drinks I wanted; she was visiting with other customers who had already finished their meal. After they left, my waitress promptly came to take my order; I then looked over the menu.
The menu featured a variety of different German food that included Bavarian Gulasch, which is a dish that has tender cubes of beef in a specialty sauce served over spaetzle, and numerous German sandwiches.
I decided to order something that I was a little familiar with, pastrami with a pickle, it came with the option of split pea soup or German potato salad; I chose the German potato salad.
After waiting for about ten minutes my food was brought out to me.
The sandwich was ok, it didn’t have very much meat in it, and I felt as though I was eating bread with mustard alone. The potato salad looked like mushy pineapples; however, it tasted like breakfast potatoes with mustard. After waiting with an empty glass of ice tea for about 12 minutes, I finally got a refill.
A Bit of Germany was not the greatest restaurant and didn’t have the greatest food, but it did have very affordable prices from $5.95-$28.95, there is something to fit everyone’s budget. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, I would give this restaurant a four.
