Durty Gurts was a fun place. Loved the décor, the food was great and there was a lot of it, the waitress was great and so were the margaritas! Just a fun place to go.

We go to this restaurant every year on our family vacation to Galena. The burgers are always awesome. I decided to try the Shrimp Po Boy tonight and was unimpressed. I'd stick with the burgers.

I've eaten here a few times and I call it reliable. Service is ok, this past visit was mediocre, the food is ok, not great but consistent. The prices are borderline outrageous but it's Galena. It's great for kids but there are other places.

We have visited many restaurants and this was by far was the best. The food is tasty and they provide healthy portions. The staff was nice and helpful with any questions. This is the only place we eat in the downtown Galena area.

We went in just to get a glass of iced tea and get out of the heat. When we walked in, we loved all the fun things about this place that we ordered the Mango Tango Salad and it was delicious. There is unusual/funny decor from the time you walk in until you leave. Lots of sayings on the walls... More

Swung in here for a hamburger and beer. They have a variety of hamburgers including one served on doughnuts. It was like a cafe but enjoyable.

We ate at Durty Gurt's with my brothers and our 8 children. The restaurant had plenty of space for our group of 14, yet we were separated enough from the other diners that it didn't appear that our 8 children under the age of 8 disrupted their dinners. The food was excellent. I had the bacon bbq burger and loved... More
