Great spot with excellent burgers, but could have been a bit quicker and more accommodating at lunch time on a Sunday afternoon.
I was in Dubuque for a gig and was looking for a cool laid back local bar grill.. I drove around the area from my hotel and found Kalmes..

Anyone who has lived in Dubuque knows the quality of Kalmes when it comes to cooking steaks at large gatherings. The company brings that quality to their restaurant which has excellent burgers.
I arrived about 11:20am and the place was empty. Leaving at 12:15pm it was FULL. The lunch special today was a very good French Dip sandwich w/fries. Lots of other things to pick from. The crowd seemed to be mostly working folks on lunch hour and I am sure they appreciated the speedy service. Colorful decor was pleasing.

We were there for lunch and we were seated immediately and waitress was quick to get our drink order. Got a rib eye and potato for 9 bucks.... 更多
