Good German style

I liked the foid, the atmosphere and the German music on accordeon. The girls had dirdnls, spoke fairly good German and the Nurnberger sausages were awsome. So was the sauerkraut and the beer. Ein Prosit der Gemutlichkeit.

Attended on a Sat. nite. They don't take reservations so there was some waiting (about 40 minutes), however, it was worth it. Service was very good. We were three couples with separate bills and our food arrived in pairs rather than all together. Not a huge problem and I understand why! Food was excellent except for maybe the 'sausage loaf'...

Who knew that German cuisine could be found in Mesa, Arizona?? So glad we had dinner here. The food was just like grandma made and served HOT! The 7 of us agreed our meals & drinks were excellent. The atmosphere is German, the music on the accordion was perfect...not too loud, just perfect background music. The place is small and... More

Went with a group. They don't take reservations, so we had to be there 4:15 for dinner. I admit that I've never been crazy about German food. I started with a tall fairly dark German Dunkelswizen beer on tap which was good. The menu is mostly sausage or schnitzels. There are no appetizers or salads on the menu. A friend... More

Atmosphere and service and food was amazing...going back soon!! The only negative was the bread-pretty nondescript. But it is still the best German food in Az.

My husband and I stopped for a late lunch at Zur Kate a couple of days ago, and both of us ordered Weiner Schitzel, grilled potatoes, and sauerkraut. Wow! It was great. There was plenty of meat left over for the doggy bag.

When the weather finally cools off here in the valley, I get a craving for some well prepared, stick to your ribs, tasty comfort food. This is the kind of food that is served up at Zur Kate. If you have never had German cuisine, there are so many reasons for you to try this place. If indeed you are... More

Food is authentically German but a bit overpriced. I lived in Germany for 13 years and this was just as I remembered. Problem is that I never liked German food when I lived there. Still don't. Heavy food and too much meat, gravy, & potatoes for my tastes. But it is authentic. Good German decor with an accordion player the... More

We go there often. My friends are from Germany and prefer this authentic German restaurant. Every time I go I feel I have been transported to Germany for a short trip. From the atmosphere to the staff and the star: THE FOOD. Love this place. It's always a go to place for homecooked dinner.
