Last Visit November 2013
There are two huge restaurants in Frankenmuth, sitting right across the street from each other, that serve pretty much the same type of food and probably get about 95% of the people visiting Frankemuth to dine at their restaurants, there are all kinds of references to the Zehnder's at Bavarian Inn, I'm pretty sure they are affiliated somehow. We've tried both Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's and we liked Zehnder's better so that's where we always go. Zehnder's is one of the highest volume restaurants in the US, they can seat up to 1,500 people at one time and claim to serve 1 million people every year!
You can get reservations but we just showed up around 1pm and waited for about 10-15 minutes. In high season, you might think about getting a reservation but in early November it didn't seem that crowded.
Service is a little slow but always pleasant, I think we were there for over an hour.
Favorite Dish: We ordered what they are famous for, their all you can eat family style fried chicken dinner ($19.95 per person) which comes with noodle soup, cole slaw, cranberry relish, cottage cheese, cheese spread and chicken liver pate with garlic toast, bread, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, egg noodles and ice cream. You can add on extra meats such as wiener schnitzel or sausage for a small fee. You can also order off the menu.
Everything we had was good, I especially liked the the egg noodles in butter with baked bread crumbs. On previous visits, we've ordered the wiener schnitzel and sauerbraten, both of which were very good, but this time we ordered just the chicken.
