Six of us and we got the front table in a little alcove so had a little privacy and quiet so we could talk. Great menu with a lot of choices and excellent service. Comfort food, well prepared.

I had the soup of the day. Good flavor but much too thick for soup. My lunch partners had sandwiches that were adequate but not exceptional.

I had an Italian beef and my husband had a huge bacon burger. Food is awesome, atmosphere is really fun and prices are not bad for the huge portion. All of the walls have funny jokes and "graffiti." It's a MUST visit lunch place in Galena!

Durty Gurt's knows how to have fun from the toilets in the entry way to the sayings on the wall the atmosphere is nothing but fun. The burgers we had were amazing! Juicy and piled high with toppings. This place did not disappoint!

My wife and I stopped at Durty Gurt's because we just wanted a light meal. Evidently we were wrong about thinking this was just a regular burger joint. The service was excellent, the prices were very reasonable, the food tasted great, and the portions were NOT light!! I ordered the olive burger, which was the juiciest burger I have ever... More
