The new owner will be opening the first week of January 2017.
Kim Berekvam celebrates her 19th year at Gil B's Pizza & Sandwich Shoppe in downtown Lanesboro, MN. While it may be her 19th year, Kim worked at the restaurant for many years in the late 80's when it was knows as the Trail Inn Café!
Kim Says "People want to quickly get out the door to get on the Root River State Trail and Canoeing. No one in town offers fresh subs and wraps. Customers can come in, get the sandwiches and get going in a timely fashion. It is a good idea to incorporate that and do counter-style food. Customers can get their own pop and refills and can order a variety of menu items like burgers, homemade pizza, appetizers and our Famous Broasted Chicken! Gil B's also serves Soft Serve Ice Cream cones, shakes, malts, flurries, and other tasty desserts!
Kim takes pride in the quality of food Gil B's produces. "Our Pizza crust is made fresh from scratch each day and we shred our own mozzarella cheese, and our hamburger patties are pattied daily from fresh hamburger!" The Broasted Chicken is a favorite in town. We use fresh Gold N Plump chicken marinated and seasoned with a special Broaster Coating for a delicious, mouthwatering flavor!
Gil B's pizza employs over 16 part time employees, the majority of them being high school kids. For many of the students this is their first job! The restaurant is one of the restaurant that stays open year round providing food to local residents through the winter months!
