Time Out says

Apfelwein Wagner is a firm favourite amongst locals and tourists alike for its traditional, rustic decor and a menu that offers all the Frankfurter classics as well as German specialties such as Schweinshaxe (pork knuckle). There offer a variety of three-course menus, including a vegetarian option featuring the famous Eier mit Grüne Soße (eggs with green sauce). Eating at Wagner’s is a sociable experience: it’s always crowded and you’ll find yourself sharing a table whether you’re sitting inside or out. The service varies from very friendly to standoffish, but that’s all part of the Apfelwein tavern experience.

Time Out tip: Apfelwein Wagner sells no beer, only the local Apfelwein (also called Ebbelwoi - cider). Drink it mixed with soda water (sauer), lemonade (suß), or pure (pur) like the locals, and order a Bembel (jug) if you’re in a group - but beware of the (in)famous Apfelwein hangover the next day!
