According to my friend, Stefan, in Muenster, Rathskeller roughly translates to community "cellar meeting room". It certainly is a nice place to meet with friends to go over a sandwich. While this is one of the most pricey Reubens we've had honor to enjoy, I'd go back again and again. While, I've never been to Germany, I can pretend what it's like by coming here.
That being said, let's review: we all ordered and began the wait. While enduring this time, we were given various ethnic breads to enjoy. Hot pretzels with horseradish mustard, dark rolls with butter. This is the place to order a tall beer and relax the day away, but unfortunately we all had to return to work. The Reuben is definitely an American invention, but the Rathskeller made you think it originated in the old country. It was big and hot and satisfying. The meat was tender, the kraut mild, assuredly swiss cheese, sweet sauce, and incredibly flavorful bread. We only need a small excuse to come back.
Sehr gut und wundervoll!
They also make a good wiener schnitzel, as you might expect.
