I've tried many establishments and found that overall Kalmes breaktime has the best to offer for both food quality and ambience!

One of Dubuque's best kept secrets. The noodles are world famous and the best appetizer I have had in any country ever. The Prime Rib sandwich is incredible. Over all great atmosphere with plenty of Cubs gear on the walls and the game usually on tv. Dallas and T.J. are the two young, talented and successful men who own/cook at... More
