We had planned to stop here on another visit but they were closed for the holidays so we were happy to find them open for this trip. We stayed in PHX near the airport so it was a bit of a hike. It is a busy restaurant! We got there a bit after 6PM and waited 20 minutes, not bad... More

Stopped while in the Phoenix area visiting my son and his wife for Christmas. Food was very good. We all agree on that. Where we all feel they fell short was in the service. Took a long time to get our food, and even getting refills on drinks seemed to be a challenge. Another delay was getting our check. Had... More

I finally decided to go there and got their Jaeger Schnitzel to go. It was awesome. Next time, I will have dinner inside with some German beer.

Cozy, busy German European atmosphere. The best part of our meal was the 16 oz beer and home made Christmas cookies served at the bar while we waited for our table. The sauerbraten was incredibly disappointing..tasted like bland beef with brown gravy. The wiener schnitzel was unidentifiable as to whether it was pork, chicken or veal. We both agreed the... More

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
