This is my second review of Durty Gurt's. In my first review, I said that I was impressed with the burger options, but was unimpressed with the previously-frozen burger patties. This trip, we met some friends who chose the restaurant, and I was happily surprised to find excellent fresh burger patties! I had the Southwest burger and it was excellent.... More

Stopped in on a Tuesday afternoon in January when many places were closed. Joined several other diners, and both had sandwiches, Rueben and hamburger with fries. Both very good and price was average. Service was very good. An interesting place with lots of neat saying and interesting decor.

Stop here for lunch when we arrive. Good food selection, good wait staff and a full bar. The menu is quite diverse and portions are enough to share. The ambience is great, they have sayings on the wall to keep you entertained and laughing through the meal. I'm sure we'll continue going here every time we come to galena.

This was rated the best burger in town so we had to check it out- the milkshake alone was worth the trip!
