THE best was (and poss still is) was the schnelly on the left hand side of the main road leading from Kingsley barracks in Minden to town, the old guy in there had the best fresh gyros you could imagine. This was the early 80's tho
The best schnelly ever im afraid had to be Fat Sams by the railway sidings in Detmold. He was fat sweaty not to careful about hygiene but by god he made the best Gyros mit pommes and mayo ever, or if you were up to the challenge a Fat Sams Super special Pizza. Which consisted of a 12" Pizza all the toppings in the shop, covered with an inch of Gyros. Just the thing after a few beers and a fight in the Ice bar.
God im hungry. Damn the Krauts and their road widening schemes! Gone but not forgotten.
Yes Pongo's was the one in Roberts and his brother Michel was up in Mercer Bks. Two brilliant blokes and I used to go up to there houses on occassions and to the caravan sites with my family in the early 90's for some great BBQ's ( i supplied the vodka and Brandy). The best Currywurst, pomme frites, sweibel and mayo with a side order of burger you could find in Germany. When I was posted back in 2001 I was gutted to find out they gave up work due to ill health as they were both great blokes and treated squaddies with a lot of respect even after drunken abuse by some.
