Gordy's just east of North Bend is the perfect spot for high-end BBQ whether you live in the Snoqualmie Valley, are heading east of the mountains, or just need to get away from the city. The small restaurant is located on a golf course at Exit 32 off I-90 with plenty of parking and an easy-going atmosphere.
If meat's your thing you can't go wrong with the beef ribs (a half rack will provide you with lunch tomorrow) or the prime rib. (Show up on your birthday with ID and you'll get a free prime rib dinner!) The ribs come with a bucket for the bones and a roll of paper towels, but also a wine recommendation.
Not up for beef? Get the Mandarin Chicken Salad and try to finish it. Good luck.
Whatever you start with you need to get a cup of the Chicken Gumbo to start, but leave room for the chocolate cake at the end.
