Our meals were delicious and true German cuisine--the real deal. The menu offers many choices, and there are specialties available certain days of the week as they are not part of the main menu. The atmosphere is homey and the waiters dress in traditional attire. Get there early as it always seems crowded as the evening nears. With live music... More

Had dinner yesterday with my wife. She had Rahm Schnitzel--quite good. I had saubraten--would never have guessed it was sauerbraten--almost flavorless. If you're looking for good sauerbraten... might want to double-check to see if they fixed the dish or try another place. Perhaps the rest of the menu is excellent.

We brought our family that were visiting. They loved it. The owner even made sure that our daughters allergies were addressed.

Zur Kate is one of our favorite restaurants in Mesa, AZ because of the cozy atmosphere (usually featuring an accordion player most nights as well as walls full of German knick-knacks), reliable service, and amazing food. While my husband and I were the youngest people by 40 years, it's a charming area with huge portions of rye bread smothered in... More

My wife and I have been to Germany several times. We love German food. When we walked into Zur Kate we felt as if we had walked into a restaurant in Germany. The decor is very typical of casual German restaurants. The menu is somewhat limited, but has several varieties of sausages, schnitzels, and rolls. Each meal comes with either... More

This little restaurant style is in a strip mall. It has a nice ambiance and we always enjoy the extra ambiance of the accordion player. The food is home-style so don't expect fancy. The four of us enjoyed the included rye bread, weiner schnitzel, sauerbraten, sausage plate, and rahm schnitzel. All were good. The spaetzle was only okay as I... More

Good German food and drinks, and price is right! If you like German food, don't miss it! This is a small simple restaurant; not fancy.

Since moving to town five months ago, we have tried out several restaurants in the area, but Zur Kate is by far our favorite. The food is always consistent, always lives up to expectations, from appetizers to entrees to desserts.. Have had several menu items now and it's all been great. Good selection of German beer. They have an accordion... More

When I lived in Germany, we would usually have our dinners out at the local gaust houses and Zur Kate reminded me slot of those good times. With a great schnitzel and spatzle dinner, good price,friendly service, and even an accordion player, I left a very satisfied customer.
