I'd wanted to stop at Gordy's after seeing them on Diner's, Drive-ins and Dives. When we pulled up, we considered not stopping based on the number of people there, but persisted as I had always wanted to try it. Despite the crowd and the line, we had our food within 10 minutes or so of walking in the door. They... More

This place has gone down hill. High prices & the burger & fries were terrible. I will not be bringing my family there again.

My daughter wanted to use the phone to call the police regarding two dogs that were locked in a car in their parking lot and the owner refused to let her use their business phone. Furthermore he insisted the dogs were fine because it wasnt that hot out. Wow havent we all learned by now how quickly animals and kids... More

We were traveling from up north heading back home. It was getting to be lunch time so I went on tripadvisor to see what was recommended. Gordy's was on the top of the list. We were in a hurry and we still had quite a bit more driving to do. I read the reviews and they said the lines went... More

If you go for just a burger your missing out. Don't get me wrong the mushroom swiss, bacon cheeseburger, or plain Jane are stellar. (Make sure you get raw or fried onions) The tartar sauce for the fish is unbeatable. Homemade onion rings, fresh shakes, cheese curds..... ok I am hungry so I am going to Gordys now!

Much better than any fast food joint. Everything here is made from scratch and you can taste the tlc in every bite. I got the double burger with onion rings and my wife got the fish sandwich. Both were great, made from scratch... A family favorite place to go.

When we saw the long line, we thought it would be awhile, but they are surprisingly quick because of their system. You place your order, they give you a ticket. When they call your number to get your food, then you pay. Lots of onions on the burgers so be forewarned. Food was good and fresh. Family box of fries... More

We thoroughly enjoy our dinner at the Gordy's. Literally walked in and placed our order and were sitting down in less than 5 minutes with delicious, hot food. Our burgers were moist, tender and scrumptious. The onion rings had great flavor and just the right size of onion in each one. We had a large group (13) and found a... More
