Metzger's image

Sauerkraut, pig hocks, sauerbraten, wiener schnitzel, spaetzle -and beer of course- were found in both Metzger's and the Old German restaurants. They served families as well as a range of diners, from factory workers with meal cards in the Depression 1930s to servicemen practicing their German in the 1940s. In the 1970s and 1980s the UM glee club regularly ate and sang at Metzger's after practice. By the 1960s, Wilhelm's son Walter and Fritz's son Bud were running two of the most popular restaurants in town, with lines to get in. The Old German closed in 1995. Metzger's moved to Scio township in 2000 and continued with the help of the fourth generation of Metzgers.
