Nana's Sandwich Saloon

A restaurant review.

I should start off by saying that I don’t review every restaurant in town. I only review the ones I have a lot of positive things to say about. Ones that I recommend. Ones that I eat in.

And the folks in Wickenburg are very lucky to have a new restaurant in town: Nana’s Sandwich Saloon.

I heard about Nana’s late last month. It had moved into the space formerly occupied by the Cornerstone Bookstore on North Tegner Street, right downtown. While the Cornerstone also offered a limited menu of lunch items, its bookstore atmosphere wasn’t exactly …

House Berlin

What would Wickenburg be without a German restaurant? Henry Wickenburg would have loved House Berlin on East Wickenburg Way, with its American and German flags flying proudly, side-by-side. It features German and continental cuisine, with moderate prices in the $8 to $16 range and a cosy, comfortable atmosphere.

House Berlin has been a popular dining spot in Wickenburg for years. Owned and operated by Peter Jaus with the assistance of Jayne Leyden, its menu includes such hard-to-come by (at least in Wickenburg) treats as escargot (an appetizer), wiener schnitzel, and apple strudel. Other entrees include German potato soup, a wurst …
