I wish I could eat here daily!

My fiance and I were in Galena for a day trip and we stopped in to Durty Gurt's for lunch. I was so excited to see that you could sub any regular patty out for a veggie-burger! My fiance had a regular burger, and I ate the best veggie-burger I've ever had here! The waitress was very friendly, and... read more

Don't let being on the Food Network fool you. This restaurant is not good. Their burgers are nothing to write home about and the decor tries really hard to be a "dive." I was really excited to try it, but when I realized it was opened in the late 2000s and built to look old, most of the fun was... More

Great burgers and fun atmosphere. Perfect lunch spot in Galena - friendly service, fast, reasonable price given the size of the entrees and the quality.

I wasn't so sure about the name but the food is AMAZING!! Lots of different menu choices. I had a plain old burger with provolone and mushrooms with a side of cheese soup and still took 1/2 of it home!!! Not overpriced, friendly staff, and conveniently located.

Love this place! Not the fanciest place in town, or even gourmet food, but the sandwiches are delish and HUGE! Three kinds of fries, all nummy, homemade soups, ice cream and great atmosphere! You can always count on a decent meal here!

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.
