Durty Gurt's is well worth a stop if you're in Galena. The decor is fun to read and explore as well as humorous. The wait staff was wonderful, very attentive and extremely fast with everything. Their have a big menu of burgers and sandwiches. I got the Blue Moon Burger which was pretty good. Burger was cooked exactly as ordered... More

1 server, 10 tables rotating in and out, and she never missed a beat! Service was excellent and food was scrumptious. You can't beat homemade fries - fabulous. My husband had the sweet potatoe fries which were also homemade and fabulous.

This was our 2nd lunch visit to Durty Gurt's while traveling to Galena, IL. We enjoy the variety of sandwiches/burgers very much. They are unique & delicious. They are also very large - plan for leftovers! The decor is humorous. The wait staff is very friendly & accommodating. We'll return when we visit Galena again.

I've enjoyed myself every time I go to Dirty Gurty's. You'll be smiling from the moment you walk in to be greeted by two (clean, decorated) toilets in the entrance until you leave With a full belly and leftovers. The decor is fun, sayings on the wall hilarious, waitresses great and good amazing.

We were here at a very busy time, but the service was still very good. The food was also quite good. However, the reason you must go here is the atmosphere. The décor is truly unique and will give you a chuckle.

We both had burgers and......wow they are big. Problem is that they are too big for the bun and toppings, what a mess. Good stuff and value though. Interesting decor, all in all. It was a good lunch.

The food there is awesome and I walked away so full! Our server Tracy was fantastic as well! She has what I would call a bubbly personality and really made us smile! Family friendly, great food cooked perfectly, I highly recommend Durty Gurt's!
