    Oldest restaurant in Iowa destroyed by fire

    Fire levels historic Balltown restaurant | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    My wife and I ate there for the first time in September on a weekend trip to Dubuque. The building was a historic landmark. A true tragedy, it's just fortunate no one was hurt.

    I hope they decide to rebuild.

    On the news they said they plan to rebuild. It will not be the same as it was. The attraction was being the oldest restaurant in Iowa.

    As stated, thank God that no one was injured in the fire.

    I love that place. Great buffet for pretty cheap. My family knows the Breitbach family as well - least my parents do. Great, great people. And some of the stuff in there has to be borderline priceless.

    Really too bad.
