A new look and a new name for Lanesboro restaurant

What was once Rhino’s Pizza and Sub Shoppe in Lanesboro, Minn., has recently become Gil B’s Pizza and Sandwich Shoppe, but the name isn’t the only change. Owner Kim Reimann, who opened the restaurant in 2005 as Rhino’s, described a lot of the remodeling that has been going on this spring.

“We have a new store front, a new kitchen, and a new dining room,” she said.

Reimann also explained the new name. “The building has been here since 1890, and the original owner was Gilbert B. Ellestad,” said Reimann. “Back then they named the buildings after their owners.” According to Reimann, Ellestad was a successful jeweler and a former mayor of Lanesboro.

The store front has been completely remodeled, and an awning installed. Business owners in Lanesboro must adhere to certain regulations to keep the area historically accurate. There cannot be any vinyl windows or siding, and colors and signs must be approved. Reimann fought to move the door so she could put in a to-go window. One of the most exciting additions to the business is soft-serve ice cream, and customers don’t have to enter the restaurant to get it.

“We are the only place in town that has soft-serve ice cream,” said Reimann.

A Heritage Preservation Grant helped pay for the remodeling, and Reimann put in her own money as well. The kitchen has been updated, and the layout of the dining area has been changed.

Gil B’s Pizza and Sandwich Shop normally has eight employees, but during the summer months it’s closer to 15 or 20. Tourist season keeps Reimann and the others busy, and Reimann loves it.

“I really enjoy the customers,” she shared. “There are a lot of local regulars, high school kids, and workers that come here for lunch.”

The variety of the menu has made for a popular restaurant for all ages. “There is no other place in town where you can just walk up to the counter, get food, and go,” said Reimann. They serve pizza, burgers, sandwiches, appetizers, and broasted chicken, as well as the ice cream.

An open house celebrating the remodeling and the improvements will be held on Friday, August 16 from 2-5 pm.
