Good food. Good service. I did a 4 rating, because I found some of the signage mildly objectionable...but that's just me.

Great burger and sweet potato fries. Wished they had draft beers and better selection. Service fast, but not overly friendly.

Late lunch/early dinner on Saturday. 20 minute wait. Good food. Burger was good size. Outside seating was offered but there were a lot of bees according to the wait staff. We ate inside.

Are you sure you have the correct restaurant? Durty Gurt’s does not have outdoor seating. I’m glad you enjoyed your meal. If it was here great! If not try us next time. Thanks for coming to Galena!

It was a mixed bag: Great tasting onion rings, though my wife did not like the sauce (ranch dressing?) that came with them. The burgers, while very large (1/2 pound or more) were mostly tasteless; occasionally we got a good char-grilled flavor, but that's it.

Don't be fooled by the name, this place is cute and perfect for families. The food was great! Love reading all the signs on the walls.

We came here on recommendation from Bill from the Greenbriar. We loved it! Wasn't expensive at all. The burger patty itself was delicious. Once the get done adding all the toppings you got yourself one pretty damn good cheeseburger at a decent price.
