Frankfurt local food recommendations

What are the must go to restaurants in Frankfurt that serve local dishes? Not the fancy expensive ones.

Eisben (roasted pork knuckle). I think the apple wne (ebbewoi) bars in Sachsenhausen would be your best bet.

- Apfelwein Wagner or Ebbelwoi Unser
They serve all the typical dishes. Most take the form of (meat or sausage) + bread or (meat or saugage) + potatoes. Then, there's also the famous "Handkaes mit Musik" (cheese + bread). Another local favorite is Green sauce (but only order this between May and September or so).

- Aroma Falafel
Not really a restaurant but a fast-food joint. Have a falafel-hummus. This may seem an odd suggestion as the food is Lebanese-inspired. However, this type of food has a huge tradition in Germany. Remember that a related dish, the doner kebab sandwich, wasn't invented in the Middle East but in Berlin, Germany!

- Best Worscht in Town
Another fast food option. Sausages.

- Restaurant Klosterhof.
Simple restaurant. German cuisine, including local specialties. TBH, it's not one of my favorites in Frankfurt but it's solid enough. I think it goes in the direction you are looking for and I can attest it's not a complete "tourist rip-off" kind of place.

Behind/Adjacent the Steigenberger Airport Hotel, Frankfurt: Restaurant Unterschweinstieg

If you like meat.... they have this huge dish of 4-5 meats. Huge servings.

When I was working over there, all my FAM buddies loved eating there......

Another thought is O'Reilly's Irish Pub across from the Main Hauptbahnoft.

Good/decent priced food and beverages.

They play US and European Sports if you are into that.

Honestly, in this case, I completely disagree. I have been there twice after meetings before catching the train back home. And in both cases, I can summarize the experience as overpriced, low quality and loud - and of course not local. But of course we just might have been unlucky ...
If you want to have better international food options, go to Kaisterstraße. There a number of quite good and reasonable prices restaurant from various regions.

In regard to local food, I like to suggest Zum Feuerrädchen - Ihre Äppler Gaststätte in Sachsenhausen and https://www.eichkatzerl.de/ - both do not trake credit cards

Most places on the Kaiserstr. are a bit touristy. The better options are closer to the Muenchener Str. which runs parallel to the Kaiserstr. For drinks, go to Bar Plank (always busy, though), Yok Yok (actually, a convenience store which lots of young people (ab)use as a place to go for drinks), or the Moseleck (famous, seriously run-down dive bar). For food, check out Maxie Eisen or Walon & Rosetti.

+1 (those are similar to the Apfelwein Wagner and Ebbelwoi Unser I mentioned)

Two additional alternatives for local Frankfurt cuisine. As mentioned above make sure to have enough cash with you since these old-fashioned places often do not take credit cards

Apfelwein Restaurant Fichtekränzi, Frankfurt am Main, Sachsenhausen, Germany

ATSCHEL Applewine Restaurant Frankfurt am Main Germany +49(0)69 - 61 92 01 Welcome

The Moseleck is really something :-)

Interesting. I've never, ever had any issues there with the food/services. As for prices, I lived in Stuttgart which is WAY over priced on everything so the prices didn't bother me or the folks I was with at all.

For the typical apple wine restaurants, try these:
  • Apfelwein Wagner (pretty touristy)
  • Gemahltes Haus (touristy as well)
  • Feuerrädche
  • Germania
  • Fichtekränzi
  • Lorsbacher Thal (has over 250 different apple wines and ciders available)

If you want the local cuisine a little bit more on the higher end (but not yet fine-dining level)
  • Zur Golden Kron
  • Gasthaus zum Stöffche
  • Schuch's Restaurant

Go easy on the Apfelwein if you are not used to it.
