Yum yum

The food was awesome!!! I would definitely go there again. Next time I'm trying one of the burgers. And maybe their appetizers.

Starting off with the good, the restaurant is nice and clean and a fun atmosphere...kitschy. I don't really care for all of the toilets sitting by the entrance, but clearly it didn't dissuade me from eating there. I really wanted a burger and this seemed to be the place to go...so. I had a cheeseburger and hand cut fries. It... More

Though I very much enjoyed my adult milk shake, the burgers here are sub par. They are clearly frozen, so they can't be cooked to temperature. They were underwhelming to say the least when its supposed to be their specialty. The place feels dirty. Its really was a disappointment. No one seemed excited to work there either.

We had another couple with us and the food was bad for all 4 of us. The hamburgers were process meat not fresh. The fish was crispy on the outside but soft and cool in the inside complain to the waitress all she had to say was to bad. We will never be back.

We had a great lunchtime stop at Durty Gurt's. The fun thing is when you walk in there are toilets lining the entry way. Apparently tourists try to go inside and use the bathroom without ordering anything, which is a no no. So for fun, they have several toilets lined up with flowers, etc. The atmosphere is kind of fun... More

We had a group of 8 and all of us had a great experience! The food was really good - I had the patty melt which was great and my husband had the inferno burger which was very spicy and very tasty! Our service was excellent! One of the family owner's came around and greeted us, joked around with us... More

This restaurant is known for their burgers. In fact they have a burger made up of three half pound patties. A couple next to us ordered this to split and still wound up each getting 12 oz. of meat. My wife and I chose the salad route. She had the raspberry blues with chicken and walnuts while I had the... More

Everything about Durty Gurt's is just average. Burgers were just average. Tasted like premade frozen patties. Server was uninterested and rude. He forgot to put my order in for a shake and it showed up when I was almost done eating.
