We visited Durty Gurt's twice during our 3-day weekend in Galena. The first time, I tried the tuna sandwich (not that great) and my husband had a burger (good). The fries were great, but the shake (butterscotch) was AMAZING. We ended up here again, when we couldn't find any other restaurant open between the lunch and dinner hours. I, of... More

Everything about Durty Gurt's was average: The burger, the service, the experience. Nothing was bad but nothing was really good either. I can't say I'll ever go back because there are better options in Galena.

The menu and food are awesome and the atmosphere is fun and casual. A great place to stop for a meal and take a break from shopping.

We visited Durty Gurt's because we are contemplating having an event at the restaurant next year. It is a very unique, casual, fun place to go. Check out their website to get an idea of the environment and menu. Our experience would have been better if the service wasn't so average. We had to ask for refills on our drinks... More

We ate lunch at this sports bar. My son and daughter-in-law had their blt pizza. It looked fantastic and they raved about it. The cheeseburger I had was excellent and not dry. My husband had chicken strips and they also you moist and flavorful. Our food came with a salad and bread nuggets. Both very good. Though they were very... More

We ate there on a festival weekend when the downtown was very crowded but got there just before noon and got in right away - 45 minutes later people were told the wait would be 1 hour. I ordered gumbo and it was great! My husband's hamburger was good too he said. They have homemade fries, seasoned fries, sweet potato... More

There is a strange theme when you walk into this restaurant. We basically came to Galena with no reservations and had a hard time finding a decent place to eat on a Saturday night. We finally decided to get a burger after looking at the menu outside, plus it was not crowded. (Maybe not such a good sign). The toilets... More

Atmosphere was perfect for our first meal in Galena. we were looking for sandwiches and a light lunch, well this place blew that plan up. Hamburger was great and she ate it all, I had a Reuben and ate almost all of it. Waitress was great, made sure I had a cold beer all the time, after that, she could... More
