Ala’s German Restaurant In Pottstown

I ate at Ala’s German Restaurant on North Charlotte Street in Pottstown this evening for the first time.  It was so good I wanted to help get the word out about this authentic German restaurant. There is nothing like Ala’s any where in the Tri-County area, that I am aware of.  Our waitress was from Germany and I gathered all of most of the staff is from Germany.

The menu is fairly extensive and they do have other items besides German cuisine.  There is a kids menu; sandwiches, soups and salads for lighter fare and even German Pizza 🙂

I ordered bratwurst which comes with sauerkraut and buttered potatoes.  Our server asked if I wanted the potatoes or another side so I substituted spaetzle.  I received two perfectly grilled brats along with generous portions of sauerkraut and spaetzle.  Our server asked if I wanted any sauce on the spaetzle and I opted for a mushroom sauce.  All this for $10.99!

My girlfriend ordered Zitronen Schnitzel.  Zitronen Schnitzel has a light lemon sauce over it.  You can have your choice of pork or chicken schnitzel.  Pork is the traditional meat in Germany so she had pork. Shortly after we placed our order you could hear the chef pounding the pork so apparently it’s made to order.  She also had a side of spaetzle.  This was $11.99. She could not finish all her spaetzle.

Since I made a happy plate, I had to try a dessert crepe.  The crepe was made to order and I opted for ice cream and chocolate sauce.  It was delicious as well.  The crepe was $5.99.

The service was good, the place is clean and the food is amazing.  We are certainly going back, sooner than later, to try more items on the menu.

If this sounds like something you would be interested, please help support this local business.

The restaurant is located at:  1483 N. Charlotte St,. Pottstown, PA 19464.

Their phone number is 610-705-8881.

Editor’s note:  Shooting your brother is bad enough, but shooting his junk is stone cold!

POTTSTOWN — A verbal argument between two brothers resulted in one going to the hospital after being shot in his groin and upper thigh on July 5, police said.

Borough police found Naveil Alexander in the 300 block of Jefferson Avenue around 1:30 a.m., bleeding and slipping in and out of consciousness, police said.

The victim, according to police, walked from a house in the 300 block of North Charlotte Street.

According to police, officers on the scene provided initial medical care to the victim before he was transported by Goodwill Ambulance to Reading Trauma Center.

Police Search for Man Accused of Pottstown Murder

POTTSTOWN — A Pottstown man is the subject of a police manhunt for his alleged role in “a deliberate plot to execute” another man, with whom he was involved in an ongoing feud, in a hail of bullets outside a borough bar, according to authorities.

An arrest warrant was issued Wednesday for Maurice Laverne “Reece” Andrews Jr., 19, whose last known address was in the first block of North Charlotte Street, in connection with the 2:17 a.m. March 22 slaying of Victor Enrique Bonilla Baez outside Brian’s Café in the 300 block of Jefferson Avenue.

Attempts to apprehend Andrews have been unsuccessful and authorities are seeking the public’s assistance. Authorities said Andrews has ties to Pottstown, Norristown and Philadelphia.

“I would encourage anyone not to try to stop him themselves.  He should be considered armed and dangerous,” said Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman, urging anyone with information about Andrews’ whereabouts to immediately contact police or county detectives.  “Our biggest concern is this individual is armed and dangerous and he could pose a threat to someone else.  This is someone that we need to capture safely for the safety of the community and to bring justice to this case.”

Pottstown Homicide – When Is Enough Violent Crime Enough?

If you read today’s Mercury, you undoubtedly noticed there was a fatal shooting at Brian’s Cafe on the corner of North Charlotte Street and Jefferson Avenue around 2:00 am this morning.  A 27-year-old male died at PMMC after being transported there from the crime scene.

It appears the leadership of Pottstown doesn’t care about crime.  They are more concerned about saving paper and buying 23 iPads instead of spending money on surveillance cameras, police overtime, more police, crime tracking software, cops walking a beat and/or any other assorted method(s) to combat crime.

Pottstown will never revitalize until it gets cleaned up.  Cleaning up Pottstown won’t happen until somebody takes crime seriously and (a).  allocates some resources to solve the problem or (b). asks for help from the state or (c).  all the above.   Keeping a “lid on the powder keg” isn’t a strategy, sorry!

Criminals are not afraid of the police.  Drug deals take place is broad daylight.  Vagrants wander the downtown chasing away potential customers who are trying to patronize one of the few businesses on High Street.  The laws already on the books are not enforced.   Yet borough council meetings have plain clothes police officers in the audience to keep the unruly taxpayers quiet. Maybe those police officers should be patrolling the streets instead of being used to intimidate the very people who pay their salaries.

The Codes Department is a shambles and has contributed to the problem by allowing absentee landlords to carve up homes into substandard rental units.  You have all been following this debacle in the Mercury, I’m sure.  Absentee landlords fail to conduct background checks and will rent to anybody willing to pay in cash.  Pottstown is overrun with social service agencies, Section 8 housing, vagrants, drugs and criminals.

Pottstown keeps promoting from within which is perpetuating the leadership vacuum.  How many borough employees live in Pottstown?  Do any police officers live in Pottstown?  Does Pottstown have any minority or female police officers?  Does Chief BM live in Pottstown?  Did Jason Bobst live in Pottstown?

Has anybody noticed all the for sale signs dotting the borough?  What about all the Sheriff’s sales? People just walk away from their homes.

Before Pottstown becomes the next Camden or Chester, somebody needs to do something.  As voters, you can do something by cleaning house this fall and getting new blood on Pottstown Borough Council and electing a new mayor.  If things don’t change soon, there will be no going back.  The day of reckoning is almost at hand.

We urge voters to check out the Reform Party candidates for Pottstown Borough Council and Ross Belovich for mayor as alternatives to the current bumper crop of ostriches on council and the illustrious Missy Mayor.  You can make a difference.

The taxpayers of Pottstown need to take control of their own destiny.  You’re footing the bill so you should be calling the shots.  Get people on council who will truly represent your interests instead of electing those who foster their own private agendas and could give a rip about your needs.

Power to the Pottstown People!
