The first time I ate at Zur Kate was in the 80's and it was amazing. I found myself in deepest, darkest Mesa and looked up the little place to see if it was still as good. Its not. Now it caters to senior citizen, early bird diners and the bland, everything tastes the same, menu reflects that. Prices were... More

This little German restaurant in east Mesa is huge on satisfied guests. Every time I have ate here I go away full and satisfied. I do not drink but lots there consumed the REAL German beer. I highly recommend this place when you want to eat something other than what you get at chain restaurants. They are only open 4-10pm... More

Had the Swedish meatballs and the berry sauce was to die for! Husband hates sauerkraut but ate every bit of it before touching anything else, it was that good. Not sure how they cook the green beans but we have never had better tasting green beans.

Zur Kate has been a long-time favorite for home-cooked German meals. Located in East Mesa, it is a cozy, friendly restaurant that continues to provide the real thing. The jaegerschnitzel is as good as anything I have had in Germany, available with gravy & onions, or spiced up; just plain delicious. Try it with the red cabbage and home fries.... More

This place was a hidden gem that my friend showed me. The food was delicious and felt like it was made from a kitchen in Germany. On Saturdays they had an accordion player, which was fun. Every time I've gone the servers have been so kind and personable. The prices aren't very affordable as well!

Fairly authentic German Menu. Plenty of Schnitzels. Fairly authentic sides. I had the Saurbraten. The meat was lean and tender. The sides were just OK. The service was OK The ambiance, nothing that German or spectacular. All in all, average, nothing special at all.

We must have been to Zur Kate on an off night because it wasn't all that good. The service was great and our server was very friendly, but the atmosphere was lacking. The restaurant was dark and not very inviting. The meatballs were really greasy and the spatzle was over done and mushy. No appetizers, no salad, no soup, and... More
