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.

Durty Gurts has a great name, and pretty decent food. The atmosphere is interesting - and the food priced appropriately. We had sandwiches (burger and patty melt) for just under $10 each, and they were what I would expect for that pricing. My daughter's kid meal mac/cheese was a good helping, and got her approval. Nice place, interesting name, good... More

We ordered burgers and fries, with milkshakes. Who knew we'd still be stuffed hours later. The food was great, the service was friendly. We'd been here before and it will always be on our list when we come to town
