This is the opposite of fine dining but in a good way. Be prepared to eat as the sandwiches are large. The shakes are very good. The service is friendly and attentive for a burger joint/diner. The decor is mostly silly signs with bad jokes. Make sure you get your picture in the cut out.

The service was good. The theme was clever. The location is convenient. But the Reuben sandwich was the best I've ever had. That earns it five stars.

Durty Gurts has a great name, and pretty decent food. The atmosphere is interesting - and the food priced appropriately. We had sandwiches (burger and patty melt) for just under $10 each, and they were what I would expect for that pricing. My daughter's kid meal mac/cheese was a good helping, and got her approval. Nice place, interesting name, good... More

We ordered burgers and fries, with milkshakes. Who knew we'd still be stuffed hours later. The food was great, the service was friendly. We'd been here before and it will always be on our list when we come to town

Galena is a quaint little town. Gurt's is a great place to visit with interesting signage and excellent food. Very nicely priced for a small tourist town.

Our family traveled to Galena last Saturday. This fit our needs having adults and teens. The place was extremely packed since it was the night of the Halloween parade, but the service was quick and the food was good.

This is really a fun place to eat. The food is just okay but the service was excellent. I had the chili which I like a little spicy and this was not.

We were told by friends that Durty Gurt's has the best burgers in town. They were so right! The place has an atmosphere that is fun and just a little twisted. This starts right at the front door! The food is great and our server was fantastic. This is a must see in the middle of downtown Galena!
