Johann Sitter, owner of King's Biergarten and Restaurant (which is charmingly attached to Sitter's car wash in Pearland), tells us that King's Biergarten is currently at No. 1 in The Best German Restaurant in America contest. Yes, such a thing exists.
1329 E. Broadway
Pearland, TX 77581
To celebrate his No. 1 spot and to kick off the restaurant's 2012 Oktoberfest celebration, Sitter is hosting a party starting at 7 p.m. on September 26. Both the Friendswood and Pearland mayors will be tapping a wooden keg to kick the party off, just as they do in good old Munich. King's special Oktoberfest menu will be served that night and throughout October, featuring a special fall dish: schweinsstelze, a whole pork knuckle that's a Tyrolean treat.
