My friends and I dined at Durty Gurt's. It was suggested by the locals and a great suggestion it was. The portions are large, so come with an appetite. The food was hot and fresh. The service was also great. I'd definitely dine there again.

If you are hungry for a pretty good burger, Durty Gurt's the place to go. I suggest the Sweet Potato Fries with your burger, they were outstanding! Round slices instead of the regular type of French fry, and oh so tasty. I would have given Durty Gurt's five stars, however our server must have left her smile at home the... More

Hostess wasn't perfectly friendly, but service was acceptable and the food was very good. Nice atmosphere, good selection of beers, right downtown on the main street. Sandwiches <$10 and most closer to $7-ish.

We always go to Gurts, When we are in Galena, This past weekend the food was a letdown, Fries were soggy and Reuben had no sauce, Maybe just a bad day for them, But what a letdown

It was a very busy Sunday in downtown Galena. We couldn't get in to any of the 3 restaurants we wanted because of the long waits. Then we walked by Durty Gurt's and went in. After a short wait, we were seated. Wasn't sure what to expect. We started with their split pea soup. It was obviously home made. Thick... More

We had an excellent server, female, who was genuine and attentive. Burgers were wonderful. Grouper was yummy. Large lunch and small price. Good beer too! Atmosphere is welcoming and laid back. Very clean.

Durty Gurts was a fun place. Loved the décor, the food was great and there was a lot of it, the waitress was great and so were the margaritas! Just a fun place to go.

We go to this restaurant every year on our family vacation to Galena. The burgers are always awesome. I decided to try the Shrimp Po Boy tonight and was unimpressed. I'd stick with the burgers.
