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.

We picked up a couple of Kate's big tacos and they were good as always. I try to eat tacos there at least once each time I come to dodge. I can always count on them being good.

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.

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
