Italian & German Food Combine with Rave Reviews

Die Fricadelle, German translation "The Meatball" was founded by Robert Johnston and opened on February 15th, 2010. The Story behind the restaurant goes back many years to when the (German & Italian) Gariano family parties invited family and friends over to dine. We always received great compliments on the deliciousness of our German & Italian dishes. Robert Johnston took advantage of the opportunity and decided to open a diverse European restaurant in Asheboro and to give the people a refreshingly new taste of Europe, something that was not offered in the area at the time.

Take a moment to download our menu and find some of the tastiest German & Italian meals available. Here are just a few of the dishes and services we offer: Italian meatballs, German meatballs, schnitzel, sandwiches, subs, sides, salads, kids menu, desserts, whole cake sales, frequent specials, take out, reservations, party & meeting bookings and catering is also available.

North Carolina Embraces European Cusine

The chance to get European food in Mid State North Carolina had been very hard to find and opened up many doors of opportunity for us and the community. A year after the restaurant had opened; Frank Gariano, an uncle to Robert Johnston, became a part of the restaurant to help the business as much as possible. With family oversight the dishes have been designed to authenticate made from scratch dishes that have been served in Germany and Italy for centuries and to this day. Die Fricadelle is not only here to serve food and have our guests feeling they were glad they made the trip, but to make their visit a great experience for those not familiar with European food and how truly good it is. Die Fricadelle will strive each and everyday to serve our diners with the best European cuisine in the Piedmont Triad area and to give culinary delights in a great family friendly atmosphere.

This is a great small place in downtown Asheboro where there aren't many restaurants. We had meatball subs one Italian and one German, they were both delicious. The staff were friendly and the interior was very pretty.

I went there today with my mom, my aunt, and my grandmother...we fell in love with the food. It was like eating at my grandma's house...and she IS German! The food and their service were great. Thank Goodness we found you...totally worth the 45 minute drive.
Oh, and the cheesecake was to die for...

Best kept secret in the south. Fast service, GREAT PRICES, and nice people. This is the only restaurant that I have ever given 5 stars. The German food is authentic. You must try this restaurant if you are in the area, or even not in the area it's worth the drive. This was our second visit in less than two weeks. The first visit was great this visit was better than the last. I give Die Fricadelle 5 stars and all A's.
