From The Nook to Matt's, there are plenty of famous burger chains in Minnesota. However, not all burger chains are created equal; some offer a great burger while others offer a great experience. Gordy's Hi-Hat offers both, and it is a must stop for anyone venturing to the northland!
After building a root beer stand in Eveleth and a drive inn restaurant in Duluth, Gordy and Marilyn Lundquist built the first Gordy's Hi-Hat in Cloquet all the way back in 1960 and has been feeding the greater Cloquet metro area ever since! Guy Fieri even featured Gordy's Hi-Hat on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, opting to feature the original Cloquet location on the award-winning television show.
While it is a popular summer destination in the heart of cabin country, Gordy's Hi-Hat's Cloquet location is a popular pit stop for youth hockey teams looking to warm up on cold tournament weekends. The battle between a harsh winter's night and a hot, fresh fish sandwich will always be won by the folks at Gordy's Hi-Hat!
So the next time you venture up I-35 or Hwy 371, make a note to swing by Gordy's Hi-Hat. You will not regret it!
