Ady, Kate & Nele moved to the United States in March of 2019 and opened an authentic German restaurant in Waterloo, Ca.
Here at The German Guys you can snack on schnitzels or sausages and finish your meal with an original German cheesecake. Grab a quick lunch of Mom's (Polish) bigos and French fries with Bavarian white sausage or German guys house sausage and sauerkraut. This is a must try for locals as well as people traveling through town.
Very authentic German cuisine with a really cool atmosphere and great beers. The only thing is that the place is a bit pricey, but if you are celebrating something or coming for a drink then it is a great experience. The schnitzel and meatballs there are really good, and I'm excited to try the other stuff on the menu next time I go.
Fantastic service, located on outskirts of town. Highly recommend to others due to customer service and food. Tried the platter for 2. I would recommend the meatballs with some chili sauce or the mushroom sauce.
This place is AMAZING. The food is always amazing, the owners are involved and are incredibly helpful, if you have any questions about the menu. We have never had a bad meal. I wish we lived closer, but then again it's probably a good thing we don't 😅
An amazing experience every time we visit. The food is spectacular & the owners & staff are super friendly! Excellent beer selection! I highly recommend the family sampler platter. They have different sizes to accommodate 2 to 8 people. A great way to try a little of just about everything. They are open Wednesday thru Sunday.
Found this place on our way through Stockton and decided to grab a bite. The schnitzel was great. We tried both the mushroom and the tomato sauces and they were both great. The only disappointment was the spaetzle. I'm usually a big fan but these did not leave up to my expectations. But there are plenty of other sides to pick from
Great experience - authentic food and great atmosphere. Very much a family restaurant vibe. The options for ordering are flexible and straightforward, and everything was plentiful and good.
Very impressed! Kind of a random location, but a friend recommended it so we checked it out and loved it. The food was excellent (omg the croquettes were to die for), beer selection was not extensive, but had good variety, and the service was great. We will be back! Oh, and they have an outdoor Bier garden with shade.
Delicious! My family is a big fan of their flavored beers. The raspberry is amazing. Plus all the food is bomb! We get the Family Platter for 6 (for 4 people to eat) and there's the perfect amount of leftovers.
Hidden gem in Waterloo. Excellent authentic German food with personable, friendly service. Many schnitzel, salads and sides to choose from. Sampler plates are a great value for 2+ diners. Many imported German beers with a couple on tap. We'll drive over an hour from home to dine here again!
Their sampler platter had absolutely some of the best German food I’ve ever had — literally everything from the side dishes to the schnitzel was delicious!
We throughly enjoyed our lunch today at the German Guys. My husband had the bratwurst, bigos and potato salad. I had the lemon schnitzel, hunter spaetzle and bigos. Everything was super fresh and tasty.
The Gipsy Schnitzel with croquettes was delicious!! A must stop! Numerous beer options, including Radler.
Excellent little German place with a lot of attention to detail on all of the dishes and sides. This falls neatly into my favorite German places in Colorado and Germany itself as they have excellent sauces and noms. Only items that could be better are thinner schnitzel and cheaper beer. Besides that absolutely delicious dishes all around.
Delicious and authentic food, and that's coming from a person from Central Europe. Schnitzel and warm sauerkraut were incredibly delicious. Stuffed cabbage was great and delicate flavor. Everything freshly made. Pretzels, mustard and German Lager is a combination made in heaven. Service was excellent and very helpful. This food is a great respite from the "typical" Central Valley food, so it's nice to get alternative cultures and finally some diversity! Building is frumpy, but wow, the food and service is great. Note they have special events and food items so keep an eye out for them.
Kerstin was our server. Her and her husband own the restaurant. This is a wonderful restaurant handicap friendly. Everything I had was delicious I ordered the farmers schnitzel. Also the pea soup was very good. My daughter eat everything and wants to come again. Make reservations today new German flavors now locally!
PROS: Friendly, efficient service. Outstanding food preparation and presentation. Nice variety of authentic, fresh, home-style German meals. CONS: Beergarden not open yet: they're alcohol license may take up to three months to arrive. Some front parking spots are difficult to back out from. Portion sizes were a bit small, so they earned 4 out of 5 Stars. OVERALL RATING: Recommended🇺🇸😎🇩🇪
I like to go with friends to this restaurant with my warmest recommendations. I go their often. This recommendation is always successful. The meals are yummy and the stuff is attentive and cooperative. Whenever we eat in this place we enjoy a pleasing evening. I recommend this place with pleasure.
Located on Waterloo Road, East of Stockton is the quaint German Use your GPS, and look for the sign on the right - you may pass by if you going quick around the bend. I love the fact that they have an outdoor patio. I have been here twice now and I love their food...I enjoyed eating their Hunter's Schnitzel and the side of bigos (fermented cabbage with sausage bits in a tomato sauce). They also have a good selection of German beer to choose from.
Fantastic food. We tried to get a little bit of everything from the schnitzel side of the menu. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. It's not often there's a German restaurant around, so we didn't know what to order, but the recommendations were completely on point. All homemade food, family recipes. We will definitely be back. They were not very busy, but they ought to be. Go visit and have a wonderful meal. Definitely suggest bigos for a side.
This place is worth trying. They have large portions for convenient prices. Regularly clean and with good atmosphere. Will visit here again.
This place offers wonderful service as well as tasty meals. One of the best place in town. The food arrived quick and the prices were reasonable. Highly recommended.
OMG! I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for months, then the Covid hit, so I had to wait. Best authentic German food I have ever had... The waitress had amazing customer service, she was the only one but she never lost a beat, and kept everyone happy. I highly recommend this restaurant. Sorry the pics are not of the plates right when we got them, we couldn't wait to eat!!
Exceptional! So good! Best freaking food and service was amazing. The menu was thoroughly explained to us and our order was quickly cooked to order and was so amazing! We will be back soon!
We shared 3 different schnitzel dishes, side dishes, beer and desserts. All Delicious. Owners are so nice and everything is homemade family recipes and cooked to perfection. Nice bier garden and dining area. We will definitely be back.
Very unique and definitely authentic. Enjoyed good service and delicious food on the patio (beer garden). It's worth checking out!!

I adore this spot! They provide excellent meals, their menu is nice, The chef in that restaurant is very trained, I enjoy a lot eating all their food. The food is always of high qualtity, the attitude towards the customers is efficient. I often go to this place and I was never disappointed. Highly recommended.
Wonderful vibes and super welcoming service. The meals were crisp and yummy. Will clearly recommend this place to friends. Reasonable rates and big portions. Great work.
We went for Oktoberfest, which commemorates the two plus weeks of celebration for King Ludwig's marriage on Oct 12, 1810. The Bavarian celebration is at its best in the city of Munich, Germany. German Guys got this right with German beer and food. That are sold out so come back in a week or so for a very comprehensive tour of German cuisine. The staff is friendly and the is very good.
I just loved their food. I always get awesome customer service there. The place is well kept and the workers are always super nice. I highly recommend this place.
If you want a true German dining experience you need to come visit! Lunch menu is a little limited so I suggest coming during dinner hours. Food is superb and they have some really great German beers. Staff is always friendly and on top of it. If I could rate them higher I would!
Eddy was amazing! We had a wonderful time eating, drinking and loving life at this restaurant! Food was amazing! Owners and workers are the best! We went as a group of 20 and We ordered the entire menu and not one thing was NOT AMAZING!! We will be back and we will make this a go to spot. 💯🤟👍
Enjoyed Pizza night! Food was great as always. Been visiting since they first open back in Aug. 2019. Great place to sit and relax and practice my German!!! Don G. Manteca
Nice schnitzel, beer is only $5, and the patio area is super nice with lights at night.
They offer a great range of delicious food. I liked eating here. Employees are always nice, pricing is convenient and the spot is always well organised.
This restaurant has amazing service and tasty meals. One of my favourite places in town. The food and drinks came out fast and the prices were fair. I recommend this place.
Fun place to have a birthday gathering. Many beer options and the diner for 8 was more than enough for us. Really good saurcrout and potato pancakes.
Was so famished when I got there and so focused on stuffing my face, I didn't think to take any pictures of the amazing food. Nice outdoor patio that welcomes dogs. Anytime I can take my well behaved Corgi out with me, gets an extra point on the scale. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Was looking for a place between Kirkwood and the Bay Area. Little did I know that short car ride would take me to GERMANY! This charming, family run, establishment has a simple German food.The beer and beirgarden establishes the ambiance Homemade by the owners, the food is delightful. Must have the potato pancakes with the cucumber salad. Their schnitzels are flavorful. The hunter is the most popular but by recommendation of the owner, the red pepper sauce is truly the best. I cannot wait to come back here!
We’ve been regularly coming here for 1 year, and have never had a bad experience. The staff are great and the owners have an incredible story. Highly recommend this place!
Came here for the first time on pizza night and had the most amazing schnitzel pizza!....so good I ended up ordering a second one to bring home. Awesome friendly staff and atmosphere, will definitely be coming back again.
Honestly I am very impressed. Didn't have high expectations but I left impressed! Truly good authentic schnitzel and the farmers version is remarkable. You wouldn't think this place would be in Waterloo but it is and it's good.
The food is absolutely delicious! My husband and I loved everything. We will definitely be coming back.
My husband, son, and I just came here for the first time and it was quite the lovely experience. We don't know much about German food and the man very kindly explained it all to us. The ladies were very sweet with my toddler he even lost his shoe and they came out to bring it to my husband. The food was very tasty and different than anything else available in the 209. I recommend the lemon cheesecake it was bomb! We'll continue to come here :)
The schnitzel is second to none. Stick with the beers on tap and all will be well. Finally we have good German food locally. Thanks for your great service too.
Delicious schnitzel and wurst. The sides are wonderful, too. Next time I'll eat there, instead of taking out. We didn't get the food bags anchored down well enough, so a couple of them slid around. But they still tasted delicious. The people there are wonderful and very nice and helpful.
Really enjoyed our meal. Very good food, served without undue delays by a friendly staff. Salad dressings are scratch-made daily along with the rest of the food. We'll be back again to try more things from the menu.
The food is great and service is awesome. Since leaving Germany in the 90's, I've struggled to find a good authentic German eatery. Look no more, here it is.
Really enjoyed the food. Been trying to make a trip out and check them out for awhile. Glad I was able to go. Definitely will be going back to drink a few more 32oz beers!
If you have not yet tried German guys you are missing out. Go try it. If you dont know what to order bring a friend or two and get the sampler plate. You get a sample of just about everything on the menu. Great staff, quick service, good food.
A friend brought up this place, so we decided to go check it out. Warm, welcoming atmosphere along with amazing service and food... what more could we ask for? A biergarten. Outdoor seating. Music. Be prepared to eat way too much when you stop in. We are so very excited to have authentic German food close to home! We will definitely be back!
We have been wanting to go here since last year. Finally today we were able to go for lunch and took our son and his wife. The food was great like when we lived in Germany. The service was about standards and they made special changes. I recommend you take friends or family for a great meal and quality time visiting.
We arrived at this spot for dinner. we heard about this spot from quite a few people. Well, it was very nice. The staff welcomed us with a smile and we felt fantastic. The food was just great. We loved this spot a lot and we will definitely return to this restaurant. Keep it up.
We had a wonderful late lunch early dinner. We had already asked if we could bring our Golden Retriever. The patio was cozy and very clean. The food was amazing, the beer they suggested was just right, the dessert delicious and the service was impeccable. We will be back with friends Wonderful old country atmosphere. Thank you
Absolutely loved the food and the service! In the beautiful countryside of Stockton and the only German restaurant I know of. All the German classics and, of course, AMAZING curry wurst! Will be making this a regular place for me on my cheat days. Highly recommended and a beautiful beer garden.
Absolutely love it EVERY time. From Schnitzel to meatballs to Sausages, the bigos salad, potato pancakes, i really can't pick a favorite so we get the platter with a little of everything usually. Beer selection and recommendations have yet to disappoint, and staff is always super helpful and knowledgeable if you're not sure what to go with. PLEASE stop thinking about it and just TRY GERMAN GUYS!!!
Great food, great atmosphere, extremely friendly staff!! Got the jaegerschnitzel and bratwurst. Satisfied with both and can’t wait to try other foods they have. We look forward to coming back. Been to Germany and Luxembourg and lived in Europe. I like the feel it reminds me here
just had a delightful lunch potato pancakes and a sausage platter with 3 kinds. all were so good, fun dishes. My server was Katie she helped me navigate the menu she is super knowledgeable about the food and extremely nice. i comming back with my whole family.
Authentic German food and beer. First time here and we was impressed. The sausages were really really good. The pork fry thing was great. The salad were nice. Service is great. Impressed.
Staff was very friendly. Server was very helpful answering questions about the German dishes served. Food was very tasty. We can't wait to go again and try more.
Our Dinner Group always enjoys eating here. The owners are fantastic. Greeting us with friendly smiles and conversations. The staff if really good too. Then there's the food. Nothing fancy, just really good Home Style cooking. Make sure and try the Gypsy sauce. It's so good. Also try to attend some of they're Special events. Always a great time.
