Zehnder’s Dinner Menu

“America’s Largest Family Restaurant”


All You Can Eat
Hungry diners have been coming to Frankenmuth since the horse and buggy days of 1856. Heaping platters of golden brown chicken, bountiful bowls of mashed potatoes, dressing, egg noodles and vegetables brought those first visitors to our front door and continue to do so today…almost one million guests each year from every state in the nation and many foreign countries! We still use that same loving care that Grandma Zehnder put into those first dinners, using only quality ingredients and locally grown products, whenever possible.
