My husband and I took PTO yesterday and today, so yesterday we went to Kuby’s Sausage House and European Market in Dallas, Texas. It’s in a shopping plaza not too far from SMU. As you approach the market, even before you see the sign, the building’s German-looking exterior is a dead giveaway that you’ve arrived at Kuby’s.
Kuby’s is both a European market and a German restaurant, so it offers all the traditional German cuisine you’d imagine eating there: wursts, schnitzels, sauerkraut, cabbage, potato salad and more. In my opinion, German food doesn’t look appetizing. It’s hard to make a bratwurst or schnitzel appear Instagram-worthy.
That being said, our meal was hearty, delicious and inexpensive. In fact, we liked it so much that we’re going back today and taking our son, nephew and mother/mother-in-law.
As you can see above, the menu has a few German words and phrases, most of which I can understand even without the translation provided (e.g., Spezialitaeten des Haus, Kinder Teller, etc.). I wish more of it had been in German, but alas, we’re not in Germany. There’s more German on signage inside the restaurant, so today I plan to be more observant and absorb more of the language within.
For a family-owned business that’s been around since 1728, Kuby’s provided a pleasant and unique cultural experience. If you’re visiting or local to Dallas, swing by for dinner or simply a treat!
