Have you ever walked by a Mandler’s? They have these obnoxious signs that say “OURS IS 9″ INCHES LONG!” They serve bratwursts and other unhealthy foods with a large variety of mustards. I headed there one Sunday afternoon for a quick bite to eat and didn’t know what to order, so I went with Mandler’s sausage on wheat, the most traditional option (well, that’s what the cashier told me):

The actual bratwurst was very salty and I’m sure I had my fair share of sodium for the day and there was too much bread considering the sausage was so small. Well, not really small, but they use so much bread that the sausage LOOKS small AND you don’t feel like you’re eating a lot of meat because you’re stuffing so much bread into your mouth. The only redeeming quality of Mandler’s is their mustard bar:

They have five or six options of different mustards and explanations of each. If you’re into mustard, you should check it out. Maybe bring the sandwich/hotdog/food you want mustard with to the restaurant so you don’t have to actually order/eat one of their sausages since they’re not that great. There’s no value in a $6 bratwurst that tasted like a Central Park Hotdog – go to Dogmatic instead!

You’re right that the bread is pretty awful, and the sausages are… eh… but the pickle chips are awesome! Definitely grab a side order next time you walk by.

Oops – meant to say fried zucchini above, not pickle chips.
