The Wurst Wagen
About the Restaurant
The Wurst Wagen is owned and operated by Gerard and Erin Lin. We are a husband and wife team with a love for authentic German Food. We chose the name Wurst Wagen because it reminds us of the Wurst Kiosks that we have visited in our travels around Germany. This inspired us to open a business that would draw on some of our favorite German food and the many discoveries that we shared in our travels. So, the Wurst Wagen was born!
Gerard was raised in Bavaria, Germany, in the small village of Siegsdorf. As a child he had many favorite German dishes, but Wuerste (sausages) were what he loved the most. He has many years in the food and restaurant industry and is energized to bring this experience to the Wurst Wagen. Gerard has a passion for traditional German recipes such as Curry Wurst, Wiener Wurst, and Nuernberger Wurst and is excited to bring these and many others to you.
Gerard met his wife, Erin in Columbia, South Carolina. It only took one trip to Germany for Erin to fall in love with the German food and the Wurst Kiosks. Erin has a business background with many years in finance and retail. It is this experience that will keep the wheels of the Wagen rolling.
