Who Are We?
You may be thinking “Lambeau? That name sounds familiar. Like the football guy?” You are correct! Lambeau’s America Kitchen and Taps inspiration came from a guy named Earl Lewis (Curley) Lambeau who was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Curley played high school football and then went on to play college football for Notre Dame. He returned to Green Bay after his time at Notre Dame where he took a job in a meatpacking plant. Missing football dearly, he came up with an idea to start a team and with a $500 investment from his employer, he started a professional football team in 1919. And we can give credit to his girlfriend for the name, as she suggested the “Green Bay Packers.” Having been so successful in their early seasons, they were asked them to join the professional football league in 1921. Curley Lambeau went on to coach until 1953.
During this era when Curley’s team was thriving, people from all over the world were immigrating to America. People came from all over to work and make their own American dream come true. We, at Lambeau’s are proud to honor and remember the many people who helped build this country into the greatest nation on earth.
As we live out our very own American dream, we are happy to share our dream with you. Our menu at Lambeau’s America Kitchen and Taps ties in the cultural impact the generations of hard-working people making their dreams come true in America had on our food and culture. We’ve merged this with the greatest sport there is, football, by showcasing famous foods from cities around the country that are home to professional teams of their own.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
