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.)

What a treat to go to a restaurant and actually get a hamburger made out of nothing but beef! Between the two of us, we had bacon double cheeseburgers, large fries and two hot fudge malts. The burgers are fresh and juicy. The large fries...More

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.

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

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.
