What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

Tons of pizza and ethnic foods all over the city for delivery and takeout. - Sep 27, 2017
The restaurant scene is gradually getting better. Spanish tapas, Thai, Indian, and Italian in addition to some outstanding German beer halls. - Jan 28, 2017
Just about any type of cuisine is available in Frankfurt. - Aug 14, 2016
Fast food everywhere. Decent restaurants everywhere. A bit pricier than DC but not noticeably so. - Feb 1, 2016
The typical McDonald's, Burger King and KFC at a little higher than American prices. Also have one Chipotle to round out the American offerings. There are many good restaurants here, though prices are probably higher than the U.S. - Dec 9, 2015
Pretty much anything you could find back in the States. Cost is pretty close to DC prices for the most part. - Jun 27, 2014
Loads. McDonald's, Burger King, Chilli's, etc. All expensive, of course unless you go to the ones at the Commissary/Exchange. - Mar 30, 2014
All sorts of fast food restaurants but why eat there when you can get a nice meal at local restaurant for about the same prices (10 - 20 EUROS)? - Nov 7, 2013
Yes, a bit more expensive since it is the Euro. - Apr 4, 2012
Everything, but why go to any? - Mar 4, 2012
I think Germans like fast food as much as or more than Americans do, but somehow don't seem to suffer from as high of rates of obesity. A full meal at McDonald's would probably cost around $12. - Oct 3, 2011
German restaurants are plentiful, along with Turkish and Thai as well. There are only a couple within walking distance, so you'll have to travel on the metro to nicer parts of town to go out to most restaurants. Costs are bit higher than the States. Fast food meals are around 8-10 euro. Good meals start at 20-30 Euro and work their way up from there. - Jul 15, 2010
All fast food is available, but eating in local restaurant is so much more fun. Most are on par with what you'd pay at a fast food joint anyway, but vastly superior. - Jul 7, 2008
Yes to all. - Feb 23, 2008
MANY kinds of restaurants. For American tastes, Pizza Hut delivers, McDonalds, etc. - Jan 4, 2008
