While on a recent trip to Galena for a girls' weekend we visited Durty Gurts for dinner one night. We all had burgers (including one veggie burger) and loved them! We also tried the boozy shakes and loved the casual, fun atmosphere inside the restaurant. A great place for food and fun with friends!

I was hangry when I got there, happy when I left! Good food, friendly service! (Picture of the Tombstone burger and sweet potato fries).

I enjoyed the Greek Burger - although it was a bit much and I would not order it again. My husband's bacon-cheeseburger was outstanding and he would have eaten four more if he could have (but totally stuffed after one, so no go on that). But the spiked Butterscotch Milkshake was divine - very simple, easy to go wrong, but... More

My husband and I went here for lunch and I ordered the Santa Fe Burger and he ordered the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and both got the seasoned fries. My burger was a little spicy and had jalepenos on it. The burger was good, but I'm not a fan of chipotle sauce, so I wasn't in love with it. My... More

Casual place with good burgers. Stopped in for lunch. Friend had the fish sandwich and she it was good also. The milkshake machine was working overtime, so next time I'll probably try one. They had an extensive list of flavors!

Excellent food and fun atmosphere. Fish & chips are great, and burgers are huge. Very quirky place with 3 random toilets in the foyer entrance.

Stopped by here for a quick bit to eat while out shopping. Service was fast and very good. Burgers were huge and delicious! The best part for me was they serve fountain Pepsi! We will definitely stop in the next time we are in Galena.

So many choices to eat in Galena, but we had many people recommend Durty Gurt's - and it didn't disappoint! The chili was some of the best I have had - and the number of choices of burgers is mind boggling. The portions are generous and the burgers are great (so are the sweet potato fries!)

Still have a good selection of burgers and other sandwiches. We all thought our meals were good, but not as good as we've had in the past. Need a bit better quality, and a bit smaller portions. Service was very good though.
