We were in town visiting family and they suggested Duke's. We all had burgers and all agreed they were very good. The Mushroom and Swiss I had was messy, but it was one of the best I've had in years. The service was great and checked on us several times. If you are in the area and in search of... More

Amazing burgers! Love the "special sauce". The shakes are good too and they come in a souvenior cup which our kids loved. Swing in with the family or pick it up to go if it's too busy. Best burger I've ever had.

I am not a hamburger lover, which they are known for, but did find many other options available to me. Food was good, service was okay for their busy season.

Duke's has great burgers, fries and shakes! We usually split a burger and fries so we have room for a shake!

If you're looking for variety in a great burger this is the place to stop. Fun beach/surfer décor with a down to earth staff. Informal atmosphere. I would stop here again!

My family enjoys Duke's. It feels like an old fashioned burger joint. There are a variety of different burgers on the menu as wells as great sides like onion rings. The shakes are very good as well.

While in Spirit Lake for business I ended up by myself for lunch and decided to try Dukes. This was my fourth time in the area and none of my co-workers mentioned this place. However, TripAdvisor reviews looked like it may be a worthwhile stop. At first glance the atmosphere is reminiscent of Chicago Burger/ Dog spots. However, this us... More

We had chili burger, pattie melt, bacon cheeseburger and parmesan crusted burger. The pattie melt was the winner. The kids liked the shakes. We tried the fried pickles but didn't love them.

Patty melt and the ranch burger here were fantastic! Love the secret sauce as they call it. Great menu for kids but also kids could order off menu too. Meals served with fries but cheese balls, onion rings or fried pickles to upgrade for $2. Small caps city for sitting and probably doesn't do well with groups of 10 or... More
