AMAZING Downtown Eatin!, 7/7/2012
Reviewer: Zack from Santa Barbara, CA
So ive been coming here since my wife finally talked me into trying new places, this was first on my list and ive been impressed each time ive been back. Each time I eat here I try to get something I didnt get last, so far ive had the chicken in pretzel w/onions and it was bomb! My wife had the chili one and that was extremely delicious and messy, just the way it should be. Ive also had the curry one and that was interesting but tasty! I cant wait to try the thai one next. I bet the kielbasa is amazing, my wife well have to try that one so I can get a bite. Great Food, Great People, Great Service. Ya its in a ally but hey, parking lots across the street and right behind its ally, cant beat easy access in a busy downtown location!!!!

HUGE let down , 6/1/2012
Reviewer: Chrissy from Santa Barbara, CA
So if you name your restaurant wurst, are located in an alley, have about 6 items on the menu and are selling out of a window your pretty much saying “I have some freaking AMAZING food” … not really the case here. This is my first time posting a review of a restaurant but this place was so bad that I felt compelled to share. I went there for lunch with my boyfriend and for about $18 we got the Thai Wurst & a Chili Wurst combo (fries and a drink). A little on the pricy side but we figured it would be good. First it took about 20min for our food to come out. Thai Wurst: the crunchy wontons were malleable and chewy, the Thai sauce had an overpowering & pungent reduced soy sauce taste & the wurst had a wet cardboard consistency. Chili Wurst: the wurst was undercooked, tasted and looked like an oversized boiled hotdog & the chili sauce tasted like marinara sauce w/meat. Fries: Looked like they might have used real potatoes which was nice, yet they too were under cooked and literally hard in the middle. Coke: Small (about 12oz) & completely packed full of ice. Good aspects: The lady at the window was nice & they didn’t use styrofoam cups. Sadly a big let down and would definitely not go back.

Really nice metro-alley setting with wonderful taste, 3/12/2012

I saw the owner Gaby working the window as I was walking by, so thought...ehhh....give it a chance. Oh was as good as it looked. Really good tasting very warm slightly toasted bun, meat clean and grilled rich tasting. Good Sierra Nevada Mustard. got me. Kinda has a cool back alley(safe) feel on the well lit ally next to Blue Agave. Gaby always has the nicest smile, -my wife and I have enjoyed her pro-approach to stuff for over a decade. It shows here. not many tables...but who cares....

Not the Worst!, 3/10/2012

Went to the Wurst today for lunch and had the Thai Wurst with chicken sausage. The meal was absolutely spicy and delicious! I will be back again to try the Indian Wurst and the German Wurst on pretzel bread. I definitely recommend!

Great food and service, 3/1/2012

Stopped by today for the first time and got the Thai Wurst and Chicken Brat. Both were delicious, the Thai Wurst (with marinated cabbage, spicy black bean garlic sauce, scallions and crispy wontons) being my favorite. Adding it to my lunch rotation, I'll definitely be back.

Can't wait to try!, 2/26/2012

Can't wait to drag my Berliner husband here for lunch! Since European Deli closed, there is a big void for great German food in this town. And, yes we've been to Brummis and Dutch Garden and respectfully will not return.
