Geier’s offers Genuine German Grub

30 Jun

Geier’s is THE Place in Sarasota for authentic German specialties

Stopped by Geier’s on my way back from Venice, FL this afternoon. They are located along a busy stretch of South Tamiami Trail and the parking lot is almost always full of cars. They have a big Bavarian following in the area, but you don’t have to be German to appreciate the fine work they are doing here. Geier’s is best known as a butcher shop offering freshly made meats and sausages without the typical preservatives. I brought home 4 bratwurst links (50% veal/50% pork), a pound of homemade sauerkraut, and a freshly baked apple strudel. The strudel, pictured below, didn’t stand a chance.
