About Us

We have been a Fairmont destination for more than a decade. Since we first opened our doors back in 2001, we’ve offered a large selection of quality food and drink — all at reasonable prices, and with the service that you would expect.

Our roots go back to 1989. That year, we opened Gerhardt’s Corner Grocery to provide the people of Welcome, MN quality groceries. A year later, in 1990, I began offering catering and began expanding my food service operation to cooking trailers in 1991. Our trailer serves many locations for auctions, town festivals, and other events.

Our trailer isn’t all that we do outside the restaurant, though. In fact, we cater events of all sizes, and we’ve served many well-known entertainers over the years including Blake Shelton, Dan and Shay, and Cassadee Pope. We’ve even served the Presidential Press Corps when they visited Mantako in 2004! Whether we’re serving you at our restaurant, out of our cooking trailer, or at a private function, you can be sure that you’ll receive nothing but the best food and service from Tami and her staff.
