A very good place to go for lunch to take a break from checking out all the neat shops in Galena. They offer a daily special; but you really must try the burgers. They are so generous in size that two could share one order with fries. Will definitely make a return visit on my next trip there.

This place was hopping even at 2:00 in the afternoon, so we knew it must be good. We were looking for a light lunch so my mother in law and I split a cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. The CB was large and very flavorful and moist. The SP fries were crisp (sliced horizontally, like a hamburger pickle). My husband... More

Visited yesterday and ordered fries with meals and they were some fresh ones mixed in with old refried fries.. Won't go there again.

If you only get to eat at one place in Galena, this should be your choice! Awesome food, wait staff was friendly and the sandwhich I had was amazing! It wasn't expensive, I think I spent ten bucks, and got a huge portion.

My friends and I get out a couple times a month to local restaurants and Durty Gurt's is always a good option. One of my favorites is the Ruiben sandwich with the pickled cabbage and thousand island dressing is wonderful. The service is great and with nice size portions and yummy seasoned fries I always have left overs for later.

Upon the recommendation of a local, my family at at Durty Gurt's. It was a pleasant atmosphere. Burgers and fries were tasty. Portion size was very generous. Would eat at again! Fairly priced compared to other Galena restaurants.

We went in on a very busy day (4th of July weekend) but did not have to wait for seating. The burgers are huge--half a pound. If you feel like this may be your last meal, you can get a double burger. There is quite a variety of burgers offered, I had the Sante Fe which had a kick to... More
