“Chicken better than the hamburger??”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

I've been here a few times and always replace the burger for chicken and ive never had a bad meal here. This past time I ordered the Rueben and had the corned beef replaced with chicken and it was great!!! My husband, sister and brother in law have felt the burgers were a bit overcooked!! All in all its a good lunch place!!!

“huge burger”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The burgers here are huge. The meat was moist and juicy. We ordered the"shut the front door" burger. A juicy burger between two glazed donuts, with cheese and bacon. Ate the whole thing....pretty good. Loved that their fries are fresh and home made. Service was good considering we came in just before they closed for the evening. The owner was there and took the time to explain the history of the resturant and some of the other resturants she owns and have opened. Very nice person.

“Good food, good fun!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Had a fun time at Durty Gurts! The atmosphere was fun and the food good. We had lunch, but I'm sure dinner time would be just as good! We'd go back for sure.

every time we go to Galena, we go to Dirty Gurts first. we LOVE the bbq pulled pork sandwich. we have been going there for YEARS 5 to 6 times a year, (3 1/2 hrs away). we had to wait 30 nins, not a big deal, but when we were seated, the waitress had no clue what we were talking about when we ordered our usual bbq pulled pork. the waitress snapped at us and WE DONT HAVE THAT ANY MORE!, we were saddened by the news, the waitress then said JUST HAVE THE BBQ BEEF. all we wanted was the bbq pulled pork. so my wife ordered soup, my oldest daughter ordered a salad, and my younger daughter ordered another sandwich, we all ordered drinks, we got our drinks, then waited 30 min, and after watching another couple recieve their food,,,( after beeing seated about 10 mins after us) we over heard the waitress say to the couple,,,We are not very busy today, we asked the waitress,,, where is our food? sh snapped back saying WE'RE BUSY! we decided to leave and asked for our check, we did get that very quick, but no apology from the waitress, or DEE DEE the manager. we had in the past ALWAYS recieved good service, and good food. but this time we recieved a poor attitude. i can see if we were rude, or loud, but wer were nice, and polite.
DIRTY GURTS, you lost us as patrons. HOW DARE YOU! after all these years.
