Kate's has been in Dodge City it seems forever. It has old wooden floors, a pool table and great food. It's not fancy but it is known for their tacos. Not really Mexican tacos but delicious. Order the special, I think Friday night, large taco and fries. Oh yeah! Even though it's a bar and grill it is a family... More

This is a place that you think of when you think of Dodge City. The décor is Western and the menu is short order both American and Mexican. There big seller is Kate's Big Taco. Hamburgers are good also. Fast service every time.

We have eaten at Kate's many times before, but this time they must have lost our order. We waited over 50 minutes for our food after ordering, and saw people who came in after us get their food before ours finally came out. My husband says his chicken-fried steak was good, and the fries were OK. My brisket was overdone... More

This is a local dive with great food and friendly service. Yes, the facility could use so work, but it is clean and the food is great bard food. Want a great hamburger and fries? This is the place to be! Prices can't be beat.

I have eaten at Kate's nearly every time I visit Dodge City. Not much for decor, but good food at a reasonable price. Been there for decades.

Small establishment with older booths and tables--decor pretty basic. However, the Staff was extremely friendly--there were several wait staff members, especially for size of place--all very busy! Lunch with Mom and husband. Mom and I ordered Chicken Taco Salads--skip the tortilla bowl. Lots of well prepared grilled chicken in salad which was very fresh. Served with Salsa that tasted homemade.... More

I try to always eat at Kate's when I come to dodge to visit family. I love the tacos. Gotta have a Kate's taco. The place never changes. We picked up our tacos to go this time and they were just as good as always.

Local bar scene with decent burgers and really cold beer at a reasonable price. My burger was a little burnt but the fries weren't quite as greasy as expected. No windows and I wouldn't consider it the cleanest place in the world, but still worth a stop if you can look past that.
