Loosen your lederhosen, raise a stein and transport yourself to Germany without ever leaving Texas at the national award-winning King’s Biergarten in Pearland.

You may do a double take as you drive by this castle looking structure off Broadway in Pearland, but this traditional German Biergarten founded by Austrian transplant Hans Sitter is not to be passed by.

The Menü

Step inside and feast on gravy-smothered jaegar schnitzel, a laundry list of scratchmade bratwurst, and a mammoth roasted pork shank fit for a king and a queen – all while you enjoy a couple liters of German bier, of course. You can even bring the kids along, as they’ll love the giant German pretzels, mini brats, and schnitzel fingers. Click here for the full menu.

King’s Biergarten places an emphasis on Bavarian beers, offering brews from Warsteiner, Spaten and Franziskaner on tap, with other beers featured in their rotating taps. Bottled domestics and Mexican imports are also available, as are wines and cocktails from the full bar. If that’s not all cool enough, they even offer bottomless brunch and live music on occasion.

The Word on the Straße

Since opening in April 2011, King’s Biergarten has heaped on the accolades. The Houston Press included King’s on its “100 Best Dishes in Houston” and “Top 5 Restaurants of 2011” lists. It won the Talk of the Town National Customer Satisfaction Award and was named the best German restaurant in the U.S. for 2012 and 2013 by GermanDeli.com.

About Hans Sitter

King’s Biergarten was established on April 15th, 2011 by Hans Sitter. The founder of King’s relocated to Houston and started over by renovating an old computer shop damaged by Hurricane Ike into a quaint 45 seat restaurant. Now regarded as one of the most successful German restaurants in the United States, Sitter has managed to take his small idea for a biergarten concept and create one of Pearland’s most treasured hidden gems.
