Poor dining experience trumps good food – The food at Jorg's is certainly authentic and we have enjoyed dining at this restaurant over the years - but we're tired of the overpriced meals, the management policy and the inexperienced wait staff. Unfortunately we won't be back. There are too many other places with good food, customer-focused management and attentive service.
If you want authentic German food and good service try Kuby's in Snider Plaza instead.
Food: The meals at Jorg's are authentic Austrian/German food, serving many of the same meals that our grandparents made. The Mein Vater’s Oberkärtner Gurkensalat is a cucumber salad just like we all enjoyed growing up. The red cabbage has an authentic taste that you'll only find at a couple of places in the area. And the Hühner Schnitzel, or chicken schnitzel, brings back memories of Grandma's kitchen.
Price: The menu is pricey for what you get. Ask for extra creme sauce for your schnitzel and you have yourself a piece of chicken for $20. For the price, you would think they would accommodate the request – nope, that’ll be extra.
Management: Don't make the mistake of ordering a beer here. Unlike other restaurants, if you order it and don't like it - too bad, you bought it. Ask to taste a beer so you don't make a mistake - sorry, you must purchase an entire flight of beer to do any tasting.
Do all the tasting you want at Kelly's East Side or the Fillmore Pub, which are both within walking distance. These establishments have great selections from across the world.
Service: It’s pretty mediocre and inexperienced. There always seems to be new wait staff at this place. The turnover probably attributes to the inexperience.
Jorg's has good food - expect to pay, and don't expect friendly accommodating management or stellar service. Guess it really is like being in Germany.
