My burger was so yummy! I don't eat bread so the meat has to taste good.The staff was really great too. I love that they had sweet potato fries. I also loved the wings! I would defiantly go back again.

The food was great and the atmosphere was fun, the only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars was for the service. Our waitress was not very attentive and there was only about 4 parties in the place (including us) so it was not busy. We never had our drinks refilled and once we got our food we... More

The food was abundant, the service very friendly, and if you like toilets and corny diner signs, you'll enjoy the decor

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
