We stopped with an entire soccer team & parents and Gordy’s was perfect for us! An entire separate building with lots of clean, bright bathrooms. Fast, friendly, affordable food, which you get yourself at the counter (making it fast & easy to pay individually). Lots...More

We stopped here early on Wednesday morning on our fishing trek to Canada. Greeted promptly and food was ready to go in less than five minutes. Great atmosphere. Will make this a regular stop on our road trips up north.

Excellent service with a smile. Excellent burgers and malts, with a 50's feeling. A Family generational establishment. A reminder of what drive-in restaurants of the past were like. Good old fashioned comfort food with fast service, and a hometown feeling hangout.

The best burgers, amazing fish and chips, and nummy shakes. What's not to love? If you're heading to Minnesota's north country--Gordy's is definitely worth a stop! (And when they have gluten free french fries it will be cause for celebration.)

This place is fun. People wait for Gordy's to open in the spring, and when it finally does, then spring has come! The portions are big enough to share, and the burgers are great.

you certainly can put a gluten free meal together. If you want the bun, I think you're going to need to bring that yourself. But there was plenty of food that meets the gluten free need.
