The Chippewa Valley is hopping with events, and food trucks are just one delicious addition to the Chippewa Valley’s thriving arts, culture, and food scene. 

A local family-owned food truck – Two Gals and a Fryer – aims to bring classic bar foods to hungry folks of the Valley this summer, featuring delicious, gooey cheese curds, burgers, walking tacos, chicken tenders, and onion rings.

Nancy Langaard and Sam Grube are the two gals behind the family-owned operation, and they co-own the truck with their son and brother, Luke Grube. Olivia Caron, a close family friend, runs the fryer. 

Luke Grube is a third-generation bar owner from Chippewa Falls who wanted something he could do with his mom and sister. His father, Al Grube, co-owns Water’s Edge Cheese Curds and suggested he take his expertise in bar food on the road. 

Thus, Two Gals and a Fryer was born with only one goal: to make people smile. “It was a rough year for a lot of people,” Luke Grube said. “But it opened a lot of avenues for us.”

Two Gals and a Fryer is known for their square cheese curds that come in six different flavors: white, yellow, bacon, jalapeño, garlic, and ghost pepper. (It’s safe to say they have cracked the code to great – and spicy! – cheese curds.)

“They pair well with anything,” Grube said. “They have a great look, they have a great crunch, they have a great cheesy inside, and I think that’s what sets us apart from anybody else.”You can snatch up some of the fried goodness at several future events.

“We’re just a small family trying to do a small job in a small town,” Grube said, “and we’re trying to have the most fun with it.”
