Now, the burger was nothing special. No expensive ingredients, no big burgers, and not a lot of fanfare. Food was simple and clean. A good old fashioned burger.

I don't think I've EVER had anything bad at Gordy's. If I had any complaint (which really isn't a complaint - it's a testament to their food), it's the long lines for everyone patiently waiting to get the best burgers (and everything else). They're only...More

We stopped at Gordy's on the last day they were open for the season and they were busy as usual. Despite being busy, you don't wait long in line at all, maybe a few minutes and your order is taken. Our food was done quickly...More

Although only open during the Summer, this laid back, busy drive in is a never fail hit with everyone. DDD reviewed several years ago, but our family and friends have been coming here for many years! Worth the trek to Cloquet!

Gordy's HI Hat had been a fixture in the same location for over 57 years, owned and operated by the same family. I liked Gordy's burgers then, and I think they're "the best ever" now. Car-hop service is gone now, but there's plenty of room...More

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.
