DESCRIPTION
Tracing its deep roots to a North Side hotel and speakeasy from the turn of the 20th century, Max's Allegheny Tavern specializes in wonderfully prepared German food in a distinctive Old World atmosphere. The original wooden icebox still keeps beer cold in the bar just as it did when the Rahn Hotel first opened its doors in 1903. From the extensive menu, recommended starters include Einlauf Soup (chicken noodle), herring in sour cream, and potato and cheese pierogies. Entrée specialties include goulash, sauerbraten and roast pork loin. Try the apple strudel or German chocolate cake for dessert. A popular Sunday brunch buffet offers custom omelets, carving stations, house-made breads and pastries, and a host of desserts.
"The kielbasa itself was great, having been grilled perfectly. It was juicy and flavored with garlic and spices. This kielbasa I enjoyed more so than the mild bratwurst in that I like the bolder, garlicky flavor.The accompanying sauerkraut was very good. It was not overpoweringly sour and was seasoned with apples and caraway."
