Gordon's Stoplight Drive In Has a Rich History

Gordon's has been a Crystal City tradition and landmark since 1948.

As soon as you walk in, you'll feel reminiscent of a much slower, simpler time. The incredible food and hand dipped shakes speak for themselves ... even our abience will fill your senses with notaligia.

Like the diners and drive ins of days gone by, Gordon's features an open grill, stainless steel counters, clean white tile floor, and friendly service. It's no wonder that Gordon's has served Crystal City residents, travelers, and tourists alike for decades. Stop in, take a seat at our classic counter with swiveling stools and chat with cook while he makes your food fresh to order.

Our mission today, as it has been from the start, is to serve our customers the "best hamburgers in the world" at a reasonable price, in the cleanest environment possible.

We guarantee each hamburger, bowl of chili, order of slaw, or condiment used in our store is always fresh. Each product made in Gordon's Stoplight Drive In is always made right in front of you and made to order. Our meat is never frozen, our chili and slaw is made daily, our produce is cut fresh daily, and our shakes are always hand dipped.

Our customers drive from near and far for our classic diner menu, featuring mouth-watering burgers, fries, chili dogs, hand dipped shakes, and so much more. Burgers at Gordon's are smashed to a quarter-inch thickness and (on request) laid over sauteed onions. They are then stacked one, two, three, or FOUR high (it's called the Quadzilla) and topped with classic American cheese, crunchy pickles, crisp lettuce, ketchup and mayonaise.

Serving the nest hamburgers in the world since 1948!
