A Real German Deli

Mattern's has been in Orange for over thirty years. It is THE place to get anything you would want from a German deli. Their sandwiches are a great value, plus you can enjoy a German beer with it! The owners are there every day working, and speak fluent German since they are from Germany... read more

Great selection of sausages custom made on the premises. We always buy Swedish potato sausage for Christmas.

I am a huge fan of Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain. I have found Orange Counties culinary offerings wanting in my attempts to mimick similar experiences on my own. Upon finding Mattern's deli with blood sausage, head cheese, etc. I was ecstatic. I had never had these before. When I got there I was surprised to find that... More

My parents are both German, and I lived in Germany when I was a kid, so I grew up with German food. As much as I love the cuisines of other cultures, simple German food will always have a special place in my heart. And my stomach :-) I’ve only been to Mattern Sausage & Deli once, but my girlfriend... More

Mattern offers excellent German sausage and cheese, tasty sausages and great meat! As a German I regularly go to this butcher shop, so as not to do without these German delicacies. No matter what you buy: Everything is good and delicious. The little supermarket is stocked with many German products and an Oktoberfest can be celebrated during the whole year!!!... More

The centerpiece of Mattern is a great meat counter featuring their own sausages and deli meats. They provide these meats to many of the local restaurants. They also have German groceries, beer and wine. They also make great sandwiches from the very same deli meats. Their Reuben is on point! Wash it down with a German brew. Spartan seating at... More

There is so many nice choices for fresh sandwiches. Great for a quick lunch on the go. The meat case has awesome quality beef.

Having just returned from Germany, I had my craving for the german meats. What better way than to make a quick visit to Matterns? I've been going to this place for YEARS and haven't been back for a few month. Located next to a Der Weinerschtnzel hot dog place (how ironic is that.!) is Mattern's, a rather non descript building.... More

They make their own in-house sausages. They have dozens of varieties, and everything is very good. They also have a good selection of imported German food items.

I have tried two or three times to like Mattern--I really have. But each time I have gone in and gotten a number for service, it always seems like there is someone who comes in after me who is recognized by the staff and gets waited on first. To have it happen once--ok. But three times? I guess I will... More
