They have the brats specially made for them Jahr’s European Sausage (the same folks who supply the München Haus). The crust was thin, crispy and somehow warm and fluffy at the same time. We also had the BBQ Chicken pizza. They use Sweet Baby Ray’s Sauce which is on the sweet side and mixed well with the chicken and red onion.
