Pizza, fries and sausages

Germans don't usually take a lot of time to eat. They often look for filling food that they can eat on the go. This is why snack bars are so popular. There are Imbissbuden (snack bars) everywhere, not just in big cities. There's usually a big selection, and though the food may not be particularly healthy, it is tasty. You'll find traditional German snack food like sausages and grilled chicken with bread rolls or Pommes (French fries), but snack bars with international food are also common. Pizza, gyros or shawarmas and burgers are just as popular as sausages. As well as smaller snack bars, you'll also find well-known food chains and fast food restaurants.
