Summary of Review

A good idea, haphazardly executed. Decent sausages, horrible side dishes, and a great assortment of imported beers in an unimaginative ambience. Go for the beer. Not the food.

Restaurant Review for Frankfurt - Mexico City

Frankfurt is a chain of ultra-casual dining restaurants with locations in several of Mexico City’s colonias.

As the name implies, their forte is German sausages.

Or at least sausages. It’s debatable how German they are. You have to question a German themed restaurant that has a “Milanesa” on the menu, which, of course, is an Italian version of likely the most famous of German dishes, a wiener schnitzel.

Hey Mr. Frankfurt, why not call it a wiener schnitzel and give just a touch of legitimacy to your attempt at a German genre restaurant?

OK. Soapbox moment over. I think I ordered the Bratwurst. It had a good snap. A big glob of melted cheese. Some sauerkraut (chucrut) and came with several squeeze bottles of mustard and other condiments. The sausage was tasty. A bit spicy and smoky. The casing had a really good snap. In fact, the crisp casing had broken when the juicy sausage had expanded during cooking. Overall. A pretty tasty sausage.

But where Frankfurt falls short is their horribly minimal array of condiments and side dishes. I tried the potato salad. Didn’t even want to start it, much less finish it.

What they lacked in variety of condiments they made up for with an impressive case full of imported beers. Lots of German Beers, a few Belgian beers, Samuel Adams from the USA, and a few local artisanal beers to boot. An impressive array.

If you can get over the lackluster service, the horribly conceived décor, the ultra-bright lights, the white walls, and the cheesy posters, and enjoy the decent array of sausages and beer, you can have a respectable beer and brats outing.

If Frankfurt would give a little more thought to the ambience of their restaurant, fine tune the menu and add a few condiments, they could be a class-act. As it is, they are an average restaurant with a good idea and great assortment of cold beers.
