The Rathskeller is down a narrow stairway along the main street of Fredericksburg. The walls are uncovered stone, lending to a true cellar atmosphere. All of the patrons seemed to be served in under ten minutes. On the Reuben, the pumpernickel bread was thin, but it tasted fresh and delicious, making a more-than-adequate substitution for rye bread. The homemade thousand island was tucked under the cheese and couldn't be tasted--since it was homemade, you would think it would have been featured more prominently on the sandwich. The sauerkraut was delicious, as would be expected at a German restaurant. The turkey was plentiful and tasted pretty good, but not as good as corned beef would have been. The plate was covered with potato chips. A pickle garnish would have been a nice touch. Overall it is a nice quick place to eat, and the food is good, but it wasn't Fredericksburg's best Reuben. I also had to argue with the server to convince her she had undercharged me for my Reuben, and also hadn't charged us for dessert.
