If it's not too bad a pun to say that a restaurant in a re-purposed train station is off the beaten track, that exactly describes Völklingen, Germany's Platform 11 3/4, 15 minutes from Saarbrücken. It can be hard when traveling to find restaurants that aren't only not touristy, but also hidden gems for the locals, too!
Platform 11 3/4 has German traditional fare with modern twists. Though it definitely doesn't take itself too seriously -- The Eagles were playing in the background -- they have several vintage cabinets with some of the world's finest liqueurs, to step your experience up!
I was very happy to be hosted to experience it.
