So glad to return to Dodge and see that Kate's is still around. I started visiting this place almost 40 years ago as a broke college student. The tacos were amazing and the schooners of beer were ginormous. After all these years, I can still...More

Casual place to eat, family friendly, and off the beaten path. I ordered the calf fries as an appetizer to share and a meat taco for my meal. The taco covered the plate. My cousin ordered two tacos. Great meal and we were pleasantly full...More

This is the Midwest family bar/restaurant. Bring the kids. Small, busy, and it's an event when they realize you're new to the place. Best chicken enchilada I've ever had. Getcha some.

This place was a true dive bar that had good grub. Not a single window in the place! Food was good and the staff was very attentive and nice. Worth stopping here if you dislike chain resturaunts and are looking for local eats.

Every time I'm in Dodge City I must eat at Kate's! I just love their home made tacos. Nothing better than a big ol' taco and a cold drink! The burgers are also good... and the calf fries are not too bad either! Kate's is...More

Most of the family owned restaurants in Dodge City are Mexican. I can only think of one restaurant that has outside seating and it is Italian, Bella Italia at 312 W. Wyatt Earp. Foods not bad, my favorite is the rigatoni and... More
