Gordon's is a story of success in Buffalo. Seven years ago, the bar and property around it sat vacant. But the Gordon family saw potential - and decided to take a chance.
And that effort to build up the quiet corner at Delaware and Hertel sparked some movement. Corey Gordon says, "When we first were here, the only thing across the street was an abandoned car lot. There was a lot and the OTB. Since then, everything's been knocked down. There's a new plaza across the way."
The Gordons say they're proud they were part of that upswing. Their business is a family affair.
Corey says, "My brother is manager here. My other brother Nick helps clean whenever he can. And you'll always see my mother and father here."
And that is the secret to their success. The committment of an entire family to make your trip to Gordon's memorable. In fact, CNN.com just named them one of the top 101 sports bars in America.
