Supper clubs/underground restaurants in Berlin

A place recommended to me (just a regular restaurant)
by several Berlin Germans (and I haven't gotten there yet, but next visit I'll do it) recommend Mutter Hoppe's. They said that it is filled with Germans (and some tourists) and has the good German cuisine.

Go to Berlin and just have won't feel out of's not that kind of city. I always feel like I fit in because no one is staring., and I'm in my 60's.

Carlinville/Litchfield Illinois, seriously

I can't even imagine what you meant about the owners being too stern with their staff and not a friendly environment. There are those working there who really like working there, and have been there for years. I love the Ariston, and the friendly waiters who seem very relaxed to me!

Interesting meals based around eggs?

If I do not have a fried egg and sliced avacado on my hamburger IT ISN'T A HAMBURGER to me!

Definitely, go to the Ariston. I've enjoyed the restaurant since 1948 (no, really...but I was 3 years old then). It is one of the originals on Route 66, and is still popular with those who live in the area AND with those down the Mother Road. Be sure to look at the guest'll see almost daily visitors from all over the world who have signed their names.
The menu has quite a variety of dishes to choose'll find some great dieserts, too. Whenever we are visiting from Portland, OR (about 4 times a year) we have supper there with friends and family...a great place to have conversation over dinner. Linen napkins and white table cloths, but still with a cozy casual feel. Dress up or dress'll enjoy the tasty meal.

Your REAL thoughts on super-processed, horribly delicious food...

Definitely it is Spam, straight out of the can, sliced, eaten until it is gone. MMMMM!
