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.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much, we went back twice, in a short amount of time that we were in Galena. It was totally relaxing, great food, great service.

A very good place to go for lunch to take a break from checking out all the neat shops in Galena. They offer a daily special; but you really must try the burgers. They are so generous in size that two could share one order with fries. Will definitely make a return visit on my next trip there.

This place was hopping even at 2:00 in the afternoon, so we knew it must be good. We were looking for a light lunch so my mother in law and I split a cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. The CB was large and very flavorful and moist. The SP fries were crisp (sliced horizontally, like a hamburger pickle). My husband... More

Visited yesterday and ordered fries with meals and they were some fresh ones mixed in with old refried fries.. Won't go there again.

If you only get to eat at one place in Galena, this should be your choice! Awesome food, wait staff was friendly and the sandwhich I had was amazing! It wasn't expensive, I think I spent ten bucks, and got a huge portion.
