When we were in Spokane over the weekend we were looking for a certain store. As we pulled into this stretch mall, this giant sign caught our attention immediately. Das Stein Haus German Pub and Eatery. I mean, you can't go wrong! Never mind the other place or reason we were there, checking this place out is our new mission. I'm glad we did.

They had two doors once we walked in. One leads to the 21+ pub which would be fun to check out but since we had our teen with us, we went to the restaurant part. This place was decorated with nice photos and a lot of beer steins. Very cool to see.

The menu had so many dishes I had only heard of schnitzel (thinly flattened pork that's battered and fried). They also have favorites like pretzels and beef stroganoff which, if you've only had the Hamburger Helper version, you're missing out.

We opted for a variety including a dish with authentic German sausages. They had three of them -- a garlic one, an herb one and one with house-made seasoning. They were all fantastic.

My teen loved those the most so he pretty much had all of those. I'm cool with it as he's a picky eater so any time he finds something he likes I let him have at.

These dishes also included spaetzle which is kind of an egg noodle and gravy idea which we fell in love with. Can never have enough.

Though we couldn't even finish our meals, we're not one to decline the dessert menu. When they mentioned apple cobbler was on the list, that was the one we agreed on. It was fantastic.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
