Old Germany Restaurant stays true to its name

Is Old Germany Restaurant worth the roughly half-hour drive to Choctaw? Only if you want authentic German food from classic Old World recipes, friendly service and a wide selection of German beer.

The Tureks brought several German traditions with them from Germany when they opened Old Germany. One is the soccer field next to the restaurant — Mike explains that many pubs in Germany have soccer fields next door — and another is Oktoberfest.

The week right after Labor Day, Old Germany sponsors their own massive four-day Oktoberfest, which they started in 1991 on the restaurant grounds.

Now it is held in conjunction with the City of Choctaw on a covered pavilion in the city park.

About 50,000 people came to last year's Oktoberfest, said Mike Turek. Chef Wolff made 6,000 pounds of potato salad and 3,000 pounds of sausages.

"And (we served) numerous kegs of beer, of course," Turek added.
