Beefin’ up your weekends at the lake, one stop at a time.
This week: Emily, MN.
We’ve got another beautiful weekend in the forecast, and that means it is time for you – and Minnesota Beef – to head to the lake! WCCO is headed to Emily, Minnesota, for this week’s Goin’ to the Lake stop, and we’ve got two great beef stops for you to check out or to put on your calendar for your next trip to Emily.
First and foremost, we have found a FANTASTIC meat market for you to stop by and find some great beef products to enjoy on your vacation.
Grand Champion Meats – Crosslake
Located just fifteen minutes from the heart of Emily, Grand Champion Meats is the beef stop to make for any lake getaway in the Emily area. Family owned and operated, Grand Champion Meats in Crosslake is open seven days a week for the summer months and full of great beef options!
Grand Champion Meats also has a store located in Foley and recently opened the store at the Crosslake location. This is great news for beef lovers in the Brainerd Lakes area, as the Crosslake store is fully stocked with the same award-winning meats found in Foley. With fresh meat cases full of delicious beef options, free samples, and an award-winning reputation, don’t miss out on this stop when you’re near Emily!

Like we mentioned in last week’s Goin’ to the Lake blog, getting to the lake and actually getting settled in can be a stressful project. Because we understand the struggle, here’s a great restaurant option if you simply run out of hours in the day to cook up that delicious beef you just purchased from Grand Champion Meats.
Ernie’s on Gull Lake
It doesn’t get any more fun or delicious than a stop to Ernie’s on Gull! With a golf league, sand volleyball, live music, and some great beef options on the menu, there’s no reason not to check out Ernie’s when you’re near Emily and in the Brainerd area. Their menu has some great beef options, including: Brisket Nachos, Brisket Sliders, 10 oz. Ribeye steaks, 4 great burger options, a shaved Prime Rib sandwich and more!

Stay tuned as Twin Cities TV Station, WCCO, highlights some other fun stops in Emily this weekend. Remember, these two great stops are open all summer – whether you’re traveling to Emily or the Brainerd Lakes area in general, be sure to check out these two for some high-quality, delicious beef!
