Welcome to bratwurst heaven, folks. You may be in Sherman Oaks, but you'll be instantly transported to Germany the second you walk in — it’s like a taste of Berlin right on Ventura. With more than two dozen sausages to choose from, all the brats are fresh and grilled to order with absolutely nein MSG. The waitresses are even dressed up in dirndls to match the kitschy ambiance of the must-try restaurant.
Brats Brothers, 13355 Ventura Boulevard (near Dixie Canyon Avenue); 818-986-4020.
