We went on a Thursday afternoon at about 3PM and there was a line. This place is always busy. The service is very fast and the food is served in a visually appealing way, it's as if they are ready to take a commercial. More often than not it seems you get food that doesn't look anything like the picture... More

The food is fantastic and the prices are so reasonable. They have great burgers and shakes along with other tasty items on the menu. The service is good and the restaurant has an old fashioned drive in feel to it .

Quick service, big portions of fries and onion rings, lots of outside seating. Next time up that way I need to try the chili I heard so much about. My only suggestion is more restrooms!

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!
