Fast food with class? Sounds far‐fetched? Not unless you visit Schnitzel Express, a meat eatery in Midtown Manhattan that has proven that quick meals can be high quality food and come with courteous service. The restaurant, which opened in the summer of 2009, has recently renovated the entire store and added the adjacent space, now being able to seat more diners. Contemporary grey and beige décor is unobtrusive, and owners make it a priority to keep the place clean and the service professional. The uber‐convenient location on Broadway and 39st in the midst of businesses and tourist attractions makes it a go‐to place for fast food lunch or dinner.
As the name suggests, schnitzel is the cornerstone of their menu. Delicious schnitzels come in a sandwich or pita, served on a platter with sides of salad and basmati rice, and can be added to one of their fresh salads. They even have schnitzel sushi! The variety of schnitzel flavors can make your head spin: Italian with herbs and spices, Mediterranean with zaatar, Spanish with spicy red pepper... and then the ingenious Pretzel Schnitzel, coated with crushed sesame pretzel. If you're not in the schnitzel mood, Schnitzel Express also offers a number of steak, grilled chicken, burger, shish‐kebab and deli sandwiches and unique platters. For a scrumptious meal, try their specialty Heaven Mix Sandwich made with baby chicken and philly steak with peppers and onions. For a lighter yet nutritious meal, go for a Grilled Chicken Salad – made with your choice of lettuce, tomato, pickle and dressing, and your choice of grilled chicken: Classic, Teriyaki, Italian, Greek, or Cajun. Ordering takeout or delivery is very convenient with their online ordering system. Schnitzel Express also offers private parties and off premise catering.
