We visited Galena for a getaway for my boyfriend's birthday. We were shopping the boutiques along Main St on Sat (8/27/16), and decided to stop for lunch. My boyfriend is celiac so dining can be an issue at certain places. Durty Gurts offers gluten free buns, so it was a viable option for us. We both ordered the bacon cheese... More

The place is quite large and can accommodate many customers and still provide fast & friendly service. The menu is interesting and the food is good. Interesting redneck graffitti to read while you wait.

Burgers are quite large so make sure you come hungry. I made it half way through mine before becoming far to full to continue.

Wife and I made a Sunday trip to galena and stopped in for a burger. I have been before and decided to share the experience with her. We both had some loaded potato soup and I had the city diner burger. The soup was very tasty. The burger is topped with an over easy egg and as my waitress warned... More

We ended up here for dinner after scanning Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. There is bacon all over the menu - what's not to like about that?

We were told that this place had good burgers and they were correct. Wait staff was friendly. Our food came out fast and hot. What else can you ask for? Fresh cut fries as well. If you are looking for a burger this is not a bad way to go!
