My business colleague and I stumbled upon this place while on business in San Jose. It's very close to downtown.
It doesn't look like a lot from the outside. On the inside it looks a bit like a German beer hall - the decor is nice, not terrific.
The wonderful thing about Teske's is the food and the beer! I ordered a Hefeweizen and Wiener Schnitzel. Let me tell you it was terrific. This was the most authentic German food I've found anywhere since being in Germany myself. They have an extensive menu and it all looked great.
The prices are not cheap - they are mostly in the range of $20-25. However, this is not a bad deal at all, because it includes soup, salad, really good bread, and a delicious apple strudel with whipped cream after your entree. The entree was also a very generous portion, by the way. When you consider all that you get for your money, it's worth a slightly higher bill.
If you're craving a taste of Germany or wanting to try it for the first time, I'd highly recommend Teske's Germania.
