When Dittmer's closed due to their fire at their San Antonio location everyone was up in arms during the months they were closed. Happy to say they are back in business at the old Wells Fargo location at El Camino Real and San Antonio Road. If you want fresh meat, sausages, or just a good sandwich, this is the place.

Looking for ribs, roasts, sausages, chops? All things pork are excellent here and the people behind the counter will work hard to help and to cut things just the way you want them. Excellent selection of smoked meats and game too. The grocery section offers many German goods, like superb mustards and seasonal goods during the holidays. Heaven for the... More

This is one of favorite places. Good meat and good quality. They know what they sell and very knowledgeable on their products.

Just go and get a sandwich at Dittmar's. The hard part is deciding on meat, cheese and bread. It's been there for many years (original site was across the street from Sear's) so it has to be pretty good to last in the finicky restaurant scene of Silicon Valley.

This is the German/Austrian expats dream, and we love it too! We were so bummed when the original Dittmer's (a couple blocks away) closed, this new one is so great!!! Every wurst and German delicacy available, and awesome fresh sandwiches!! Easy parking and access on El Camino at San Antonio Road in Mt. View/Los Altos.

I wanted to recreate a meal we had in Nuremberg so I went to Dittmer's to get Nuremberg Bratwurst, sauerkraut, and mustard. The meat counter was amazing with such a varied choice of meats. Couldn't pass up the pretzels or strudel bites which were both very good. Can't wait to go back

Dittmer's is a carnivore's delight! I've been going to Dittmer's for the last 12 years. When the old location caught fire, we were so happy they re-opened in the same neighborhood. They smoke their own meats, make all varieties of sausage, have free-range, organic air cooled chicken, excellent steaks, the best baby back ribs and lamb chops. When my friend... More

Craving some bratwurst? Maybe Louisiana hot links? Smoked pork chops, chicken or turkey? Fresh pork, beef and chicken? It's all here. This is a family run outfit and really works hard to provide the best in sausages and other preserved meats. It also has a great selection of fresh meat, particularly pork. In addition, there is a great selection of... More

They put mayo on my Reuben sandwich. I asked for it plain and they didn't listen. Turkey was dry this time and normally very moist. Bad day or off day for Dittmer's. Sandwiches aren't cheap, so not sure I'll go back when there are other options in the area, like Sprout's who have deli and sandwiches to order.

We've missed Dittmers since the fire, glad to see they're back! Award winning sausages, any cut of meat you'd like (can special order just about ANYTHING), and a selection of German pluses. The smoked bratwurst are a game changer, as a cook. The smoke pork chops are WONDERFUL - I keep some in the freezer for drop in guests, and... More
