Otto's Sausage Kitchen & Meat Market
Reedies and other Woodstock denizens can happen by during the week, but for the rest of us, an Otto's visit means Saturday. And if nothing else, you can identify Otto's by the crowd of people in front.
You can just stay outside, grab a soda from the tub and buy a sausage, but it's worth it to go in. First of all, they have beer on tap:
- Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
- Otto's IPA (made by Raccoon Lodge)
- Deschutes Buzzsaw Brown (a seasonal)
- Pilsner Urquel
- New Belgium Skinny Dip (a seasonal)
- Deschutes Obsidian Stout
- Thomas Kemper Root Beer
- Vernors (in glass bottles!)
- Thomas Kemper sodas
- Red Rock
- Henry Weinhard's
- Green River
- Big Red
The menu will list the sausages on the grill. There's usually wieners, smoked pork sausages, and chicken sausages, with regular, potato or whole wheat buns. For $1.50-$3, you have lunch. Or half a lunch. Whatever. Load up on the limited condiments and take a seat outside if there is one. Cuz there aren't any tables indoors.
I know far more esteemed critics have called Otto's one of the best 10 hot dogs in the U.S., but I don't think it's quite that good. They're tasty dogs but they pale compared to others in SE.
