Webos Restaurant Serves Up Old Fashioned German Dishes

By  | 

Good old fashioned German home cooking is served up at Webos Restaurant in Linton.

If you're hungry for hearty food from the old country, this diner doesn't disappoint.

Mary Oien is the head cook at Webos and an old hand at kneading kneophla. She says he dough used in the to make chicken and dumplings is also mixed into the the traditional German soup served up here.

"We boil it and add milk, cream and potatoes."

A majority of the folks who live in Linton have German roots, and customers like Mary Stoppler know the difference between authentic ethnic meals and imitation.

"I was born and raised with stuff like this, with kneophla, sauerkraut and fish."

Manager Sami Klein says the recipe for the kneophla soup served here is 50-years old.

"The recipe came from Les Renschler, he's the one who opened this place in 1976."

You don't have to be German to enjoy the food cooked up there.

"I like sauerkraut, I like kneophla and I'm Dutch."

Doug Haak is one of the fifty to a hundred customers who order Kneophla for lunch.

"It was great, it's the first time I've had it and I'd have it again."

Just one sip hooked Ryan Heinsohn on the hearty savory stew that's featured every Friday. Levina Vetter was raised on it and is a regular at Webos.

"It's good German food."

Food for thought if you have a taste for kneophla soup, or sauerkraut, sausage and kneophla.
