Foodies love little more than a good burger place, and Durty Gurt's is the best burger place in the Dubuque/Galena area. They have a wide selection of burgers, including some epic ones such as one stacked four half puns patties high, or another that replaces the buns with glazed doughnuts. They also have some other great selections of the menu... More

Nice little place on the newer side for Galena. We each had a different burger and both were great. Server was friendly and prompt. Will definitely go back again for lunch if I am in the area.

We stopped in for wings and fries. They were amazing. Great place and great atmosphere. We sat the bar and staff was amazing. This would be a great place for supper or a quick drink.

They served awesome hamburgers, hand cut fries, and milkshakes. Not "fine dining" but great dining! We would definitely eat here again.

Stopped for lunch because it looked kind of cute and advertised the best burgers. The burgers were 1/2 pound and I wasn't that hungry. Had a cup of their potato soup and fried wings appetizer to share. Both were very good and quite filling.

Straight forward food. Casual venue with great service. The burgers were just great, truly. On every trip we seek a "regulars kinda place" and in Galena we found this little gem! You could spend most of your visit just reading all the paraphilia on the walls, for goodness' sakes. Ccccccold beer, very satisfying burger + fries. I mean, really, could... More

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.
