We hope you had the chance to try Pajarito in August, but it’s time to switch it up a bit! As you may know, Depot Refreshments is hosting Minnesota based chefs and restaurants during our brand new residency program. For September and October, we think it’s time for something new. Lolo will be taking over Depot Refreshments! Lolo is an American kitchen located in Stillwater, MN. Valleyfair guests will be treated to a specially designed menu specifically for the park by Joe Ehlenz and Brad Nordeen.
Joe Ehlenz and Brad Nordeen are two native Stillwater residents aiming to provide a community experience between the staff and their customers while serving elevated street food and inventive cocktails. Even the restaurant’s name speaks to the co-owners’ vision: LOLO stands for “locally owned, locally operated.” There are many exciting and innovative menu items to try, and the staff is constantly dreaming up new dishes and drinks.
The American Kitchen is well-known for their LOLO Burger, which won Stillwater’s “Best Burger in the Valley” contest in 2015, the hanger steak, roast chicken tacos, and the pork tenderloin, which is marinated, pan-roasted and served with Korean barbecue sauce.
Valleyfair will offer a variety of Lolo American Kitchen menu items including their infamous LOLO Burger, the Fat Joe Burger, a Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog, Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos, as well as scrumptious sides like smoked salt fries and fried Brussel sprouts. You’ll understand why this restaurant is a family favorite – it’s always a crowd-pleaser! Make sure to stop in during September and October to experience the flavorful goodness of Lolo – you won’t want to miss this!
Depot will also feature a variety of beer and cocktail selections for guests 21 years of age and older. Guests can enjoy Tattersall's Valleyfair Rum Punch, Summit Slugfest, and other domestic selections.
Menu items will be available on the All Season Dining Plan, All Day Dining Plan, and Single-Meal Deal.
