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

Loved this place for burgers and shakes! Didn't try anything else, next time the onion rings! Its like going back into time, when BURGERS were BURGERS! This is the ONLY place to eat in Cloquet! Don't bother with any other place...REALLY! Gordy's is number one!!!!

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

We were visiting Cloquet and took a friend's recommendation to go to Gordy's for burgers. We ended up going to the Hi-Hat for burgers, fries and shakes for dinner and then next door to Gordy's Coffee and Cream for a specialty shake (for the picky family member who had to have a coffee shake -- they don't do coffee at...

You know it's summer when -- Gordy's is open! Our first visit of the season was reliably good, except the homemade onion rings had run out by the time we arrived (oh well, a reason to go back!) I was happy to see the offering of Udi's Gluten Free rolls; a nice nod to the GF crowd. My only disappointment:... More
