Geri’s Hamburgers was a Rockford-based fast food chain with more than a dozen stores across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin at its peak, including at least six in the Rockford area and two in Madison. Geri’s was similar in style to the early McDonald’s restaurants. They had little or no inside seating and were geared towards fast take-out service. First opening in 1962, there were at least 13 Geri's locations by 1980. In 1981, the Geri’s corporation folded, but several stores continued to operate independently. The last Geri’s was in Beloit, Wisconsin and closed in 1999.

It's a good quality shirt for the price. The print looks great, good quality as well. I wish they would tell you the fit though, I like fitted shirts and the large fits bigger than larges I normally buy. I like the shirt, just wish I had a medium.

As soon as I saw this shirt, I had to order one for my brother and one for me right away. Who doesn't love that little hamburger dude? Print quality is fantastic, shirt quality is excellent, fit is great, and the piece de resistance was the Bygone tag made from a pog. Can't wait to go back to Beloit to show it off and make everyone wonder where I got it.

I like the image very much, nice solid printing, but I think the shirt runs small, maybe should've ordered an XXL, or if you offered a XL tall.

This Geri's shirt got immediate cheers from those who grew up in Janesville or Beloit.

I ordered my Geri's T-Shirt Saturday afternoon and it was waiting for me in todays mail. You can't beat service like that anywhere! Wish Geri's was still around ... I liked it better than the Golden Arches. The one in Freeport closed in 1974.

I had to come to the website to order a Geri's t-shirt for my sister. I wore mine while on a family trip to Canada and my sister told me to give it to her! As soon as I returned I ordered it. Everyone who sees it wants one too so I posted the purchase on Facebook. It looks completely authentic and since it's seen a couple of washings I can say it is made of sturdy material. Thanks, Keith!

I loved the shirt, brought back childhood memories. I would of liked Rockford, IL somewhere on the shirt: small print on a sleeve maybe.

Great idea! Brings back memories to all. One guy thought it was a relic, said "do you know what that's worth?" I laughed and said, yes, $18.00!

I wore my Geri's T to the City Market and had over a dozen people stop and ask about it. One guy wanted to buy it off my back!
