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.

52% combed and ring-spun cotton 48% polyester, preshrunk, 4.2 oz. Super soft with a fashion fit.

Love it!
Written by Michelle on 28th Apr 2020

It fits great! I am 5'10 and 215 pounds. I got an extra large and it's perfect. I've washed it once so far and I don't dry my shirts so not sure if it will shrink when you do but I always use warm water and that didn't shrink it. The picture looks like it's going to hold up nicely. I ended up buying 3 more for family!

Great shirt! The t-shirt fabric is the softest I can remember on a new t-shirt. As a collector, I see A lot of prints and decals. This shirt is truly the good stuff and will last decades.

Quality T and logo
Written by Marty on 14th Apr 2018

A very nice t-shirt and the logo was very nice also. I love it!!

Size runs small
Written by undefined on 12th Mar 2018

I ordered the 2xl because it was the largest size offered, but It's too small. I gave it to my wife and it fits her well, only slightly big. She typically wears a large.

Geri's T-shirts are very nostalgic - a great reminder of your youth!

smooth and easy transaction

Everything went well, but I did have one issue with the material for the shirt, It just seemed a little bit flimsy.

A bit small...
Written by undefined on 12th Nov 2015

I love this t-shirt! But, compared to other shirts in this size, it seems a bit tight.

So happy to have found this!

Geri's was a family favorite growing up in the 60's in Rockford. This shirt makes me happy! The style, fit, color, quality and logo on my women's long sleeve top are perfect!

Awesome shirt

Received a lot of compliments on my t shirt

Nice quality LS t-shirt!
Written by J on 2nd Apr 2015

This was ordered as a gift for someone who worked at Geri's Burgers around 45 years go. He loved the gift. I haven't gotten feedback on how well it fits, but it seemed to be high quality, and the packaging was done very nicely (wooden nickle, plastic wrapped with a brand label, a postcard, and a decal). Good gift!

Great product. Quick delivery.

Great quality, high resolution and very professional!
Written by Yizmo on 11th Dec 2014

The Geri's logo shirt is high quality, carefully placed, printed and of overall higher quality than similar products. I'm extremely pleased. I will continue to recommend Bygone to others as the overall experience is among the best I've had from a online vendor!

Awesome shirt

Was very impressed and have received alot great comments i plan on buying in future

4 stars
Written by undefined on 17th Aug 2014

The only thing that would make this t-shirt 5 stars is if it were offered in a heavier fabric t-shirt. The design is 5 stars. the shirt itself, 3 stars. PLEASE offer this, and ALL your designs, in sweatshirts.

Great Memories
Written by Norberto Rivera - Now I live in FL. on 15th Jul 2014

Geri's in Beloit, WI closed in 1995 due to a road construction that affected the business very badly. I was the last independent owner at that time. Bought it in 1992 until I closed it down.

Great Shirt
Written by Carrie on 24th Jun 2014

We purchased this shirt for my father-in-law. He was very excited to receive it. He said it seemed like great quality and is a fun shirt. He even got comments when he wore it out and about. I had made a mistake when ordering and the customer service was great. Thanks for a fun product!

Great print, brings back memories
Written by Edgar on 16th Feb 2014

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.

Great shirt, great memories!
Written by Kim on 16th Jan 2014

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.

cool image
Written by David Van Pernis on 13th Dec 2013

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.

Great Nostalgia For Southern Wisconsin Boomers
Written by undefined on 30th Oct 2013

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

EXCELLENT Customer Service
Written by Another Satisfied Customer on 26th Aug 2013

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.

My sister wanted it off my back!
Written by Janie Wilson-Cook on 12th Aug 2013

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!

Shirt Review
Written by Phyllis Lanier on 15th Jul 2013

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

Written by undefined on 4th Jul 2013

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!

Written by undefined on 20th Jun 2013

I love this shirt. Everyone that knows Geris thinks it's a relic. Best buy in a longtime!!!

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!
