A lot of people have opted not to fly somewhere for their vacations and explore the beautiful state of Minnesota. I’ve seen quite a few people head up to the north shore. I decided to do that as well. There is a place where you’ll want to stop at the beginning of your trip or at the end or maybe both.
One of our Minnesota icons, they’ve been doing this since 1960. I always try to stop on my way up to Duluth or if I’m going to be in the area. @gordyshihat takes you back in time and gives you that diner-style experience.
I usually opt for the Double Cheeseburger with onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard. I made one little change and went with fried onions instead of raw onions this time.
A couple of thin, juicy patties that are hand formed every day. It’s around a 1/3 pound of beef. I’d love to be able to add a patty. American cheese melted nicely on the patties. This was the first time I had fried onions. They are diced and fried perfectly. It will be fried for me going forward. I’ll take some sliced dill pickles. I added ketchup and mustard to complete my burger. The bun is simple, it’s not toasted. This is a good burger and what you would expect from a diner like experience.
I do want to mention their Coney Dog. My first time trying it and I was struck by the flavor of the chili. It was delicious! This will be a staple for me going forward.
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, Gordy’s is doing CarHop service. You will drive into a line, be given a stall number when one is available and a server will come out and take your order. It was a very good experience for us.
You’ve still got some time to make a trip to this Minnesota Treasure. They will be open as long as weather permits.
