Real Bites - Chat-N-Chew

Chat it up

The other day, Duane Gilbertson, owner of Duane Gilbertson Construction, joined me for lunch at Chat-N-Chew in Lanesboro.

The owner, Roger Baker, was taking care of business that day, so he stopped by our table to take our order. While there was an extensive menu, the daily special caught my attention. Hamburger and elk burger were the options.

So, I asked Roger what was the difference between an elk burger and a hamburger. He said the elk burger was healthier for me, but also a little drier than a hamburger.

Well, as a man of adventure, I couldn’t resist, so I ordered the elk burger and Duane went the other direction and ordered the hamburger.

Another couple walked in the door, and the conversations started flowing regarding “the good ole days” in Lanesboro when police officers gave people a ride home from the bars. It was a perfect setting for catching up on what was happening in town, along with a little reminiscing about how things used to be back in the day.

When I’ve delivered the Fillmore County Journal to rack locations in Lanesboro on Saturday mornings, I’ve always seen a packed house at Chat-N-Chew. As Roger said, it’s usually the same crowd every morning. People come in to catch up on the happenings of the area, and probably talk politics -- state and national. I’m sure you’d find some wholesome, common sense opinions if you visited any given morning at Chat-N-Chew. If only we can get these ideas in the heads of some of our politicians. Maybe they should spend some time at Chat-N-Chew!

Well, our food arrived, and the elk burger along with my fries were fantastic. I had never had an elk burger before, so this was a first.

Yes, Roger runs a great restaurant that gives you a “down home” feel. Every town needs that, and Lanesboro has that with Chat-N-Chew.
