Split a bacon cheese burger and sweet potato fries with a friend. Burger was huge! Probably one of the best burgers I have had. Not sure why, but it was delicious! Atmosphere was fun and service was excellent.

This was a great place to eat. It was a tad greasy but it also had a great variety in burgers and sandwiches. I would recommend going here for a sandwich, hot or cold.

Durty Gurts is one of the best places in the area to get a burger, or some epic eats. Featuring a fun menu, Durty Gurts is a pretty unique place that also sells some good treats such as alcoholic and homemade shakes. Also the menu has some very large items available food thrill seekers, such as a burger with glazed... More

Great burgers and shakes. They even have shakes with alcohol in them. Cute place, was a little crowded on a rainy day. Well worth it!

Our last night in Galena was spent enjoying great food here. We had dessert first in the guise of their famous milkshakes. I enjoyed the Brandy Alexander with brandy and Creme de Cacao and my fiancee enjoyed a Mocha Mint, with Peppermint Schnapps, coffee and chocolate. The restaurant is kid friendly and one of the better economic values in town.... More

Food was good but the hamburger was ridiculous at 1/2 pound, nobody needs to eat a half pound burger. Food was good, milkshake was great, the place itself was darling.

This is a wonderful stop to take a break from shopping and have some good home style cooking! We enjoy the ribs, pulled pork and the various sandwiches but never manage to have room for dessert. Perfect place to take a big group or family thanks to their fun and welcoming environment.

My husband and I were in Galena for our honeymoon weekend and we went to Durty Gurt's for lunch on one of the days. It was fun reading all the humorous signs in there too! Service was good, and the food didn't take too long. Everything was delicious and my husband and I had to both take leftovers with us!... More
