We are a German Sausage Cart that serves the most authentic German Food and Sausages in town.
We offer a variety of homemade sides that we are proud to say are German Authentic as well. We are based in Columbia, SC, and hope to visit a city or town near you. We now offer a full catering menu as well.
The Wurst Wagen is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Gerard and Erin Lin who share a love for authentic German food.
Our butcher is a German-trained master butcher, and all of our sides use local products. If we can’t find local we come up with different side for the day! All of our sausages are made with traditional German seasonings and bulk spices.
We are Certified South Carolina. Our sausages have no artificial coloring, no artificial flavoring, no liquid smoke, no fillers, and no MSG. They are all natural with less fat. All of our produce is from local growers.

Bavarian Bierbrat Wurst
An herb-filled veal and beef wurst cooked in beer, marinated in beer, tastes like beer, but no beer left in it (sorry).

A knack wurst served Berlin style, smothered in homemade curry ketchup and topped with curry powder. One of the most popular wursts in Germany.
Kaesekrainer Wurst (mild or spicy)
An Austrian delicacy made with pork and beef, smoked to perfection, and filled with cheese. There is a mild and a spicy version!
This is a pork and beef sausage that has been smoked to perfection.
We don’t always have these, but if you’re lucky, you might catch us with them on our menu for the day!
This is one of the oldest sausage recipes in Germany dating back to 1300. It is a perfected sausage with veal, beef and spices.
The German National Dish is a hammered pork loin, breaded in homemade bread crumbs and flash fried.
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 love and 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 keeps the wheels of the Wagen rolling.
