The Jorgs Oktoberfest will be held in the family-owned Jorg’s Cafe Vienna in Plano, Texas, just outside Dallas.

If you’re a fan of German culture, beer, and meat, or you just like to have a good time, you really need to make your way over here. It’s not just another watered-down Oktoberfest in name only. Jorg’s has been voted a winner in two local categories: “Best Restaurant for a Date in Plano” and “Best Beer Selection in Plano.”
This is a chance to celebrate the fun time of Oktoberfest, which is observed annually in Austria, Germany, and Hungary. It is a festive celebration with music, dancing, food, and, of course, lots of tantalizing beer. You can experience a taste of Oktoberfest in the cozy family-ownedJorg’s Café Vienna. Jorg’s Cafe Vienna offers an authentic Austrian / German experience in the middle of Texas. It’s staff and ownership take great pride in serving up food and drink that’s authentic.
Instead of being in October like you would assume from the name, the festival now starts in September because there are more favorable weather conditions. There will be special beers, sausages, smoked meats, Wiener Schnitzel and more for the celebration. Servers at Jorg’s are dressed year-round in the traditional lederhosen and dirndl, which creates an authentic Austrian feel to the atmosphere. The menu is full of old family recipes such as the Liptauer Teller, which is a warm pretzel bread that is served with Liptauer, a traditional Austrian cheese spread.
The main course can be their famous veal schnitzels, chicken cutlets, Mamma’s recipe of Austrian beef stew or a traditional Austrian spätzle, which is a type of homemade pasta. Also popular is their Butcher’s Plate, which is two types of bratwurst and a double-smoked pork chop served with sauerkraut and their delicious Austrian potato salad. The finishing touch is a nice Austrian or German beer, wine, or liquor.
