July 16th, 2010


  1. Karen Too says:

    What gets served the rest of the week? Asbord?

  2. Jeff says:

    specialy at that price. Who needs vegas.

  3. Candice in Alabama says:

    Speaking of smorg – segue – my hours wait is done – off to brew Dr. Perky.

  4. Craig ( NC!) says:

    …umm What’s “smorg”?

  5. Jeff says:

    Brother, nice to see you posting again…your kidding? if not smorgasborg…dinner. Or the humorous side of me – would say…a new version so smores..with a g instead of the e.
    Hope all is well craig.

  6. Will says:

    I use to love it when my Mother would cook up a big ol’ pot of smorg.

  7. Michael in Atlanta says:

    Good Stuff

    Mom used to serve it all the time.

  8. texas steve says:

    took me minute but I am guessing they mean “small original”?

  9. Kirsten says:

    Served on Mondays & Tuesdays and at that price…would it be safe to assume they’re serving leftovers from the week before? I am so glad Matt is back on the grid, his blog is the best trip I’ve had in years! Thank you for being out there, Matt!

  10. Don in Tennessee says:

    A version of all you can eat buffet. A smorgasbord of everything on the menu left over from those who drank the purified water!!!

    It is called not being wasteful-and I kind of like it???

  11. Dennis in So Cal says:

    Who knew that pizza was a traditional Scandanavian dish? Here’s a link for those wondering where the term came from….

  12. Jim in AR via MN says:

    It took me a moment…but I guess not all of you are from the upper midwest???…(“You aren’t from around here, huh???”)…to a Minnesooootan it is what you call a buffet…that’s why we pronouce “buffet”…”buff it”…we just never heard of anything that is a “smorgasbord” and call it a “buff it”…uff da!!!…anyway…

    • Jim in AR via MN says:

      Sorry…a little more tutorial…that “O” in Minnesooooota is a LOOOOOONG “O”…as in MinnesOOOOtan…just thought you would like to know…I know, “fee da”…

    • Really? A Buff-it? We here in Ohio, at least anyone I’ve ever heard, calls it a buff-eh, like good day eh? Eh, where’d you go? Eh like in Canada eh? Buff-eh. Eh?

  13. Kirsten from MN says:

    Un oh – there are TWO Kirsten’s out here…

    • Barbara Kiviat says:

      It is a shock a number of us have had to deal with. Barbara, Barb V– I’ve lost count at this point.

  14. Smorgasboard…. LBM serves one of the best, each night of the week! We locals KNOW this, and don’t demerit you other Mattites for not knowing LOL! Lewistown is a 6,000 member predominately AG community. You can learn more at these sites:, HAVE FUN!

    • Jim in AR via MN says:

      Now I have never been north of Billings…but my brother-in-law worked for “Bob’s Pickup and Delivery” (now Old Dominion they bought them out)…I think they delivered to all parts of Montana…and I think they had a depot in Lewistown…small company in the grand scheme of things…but things are like that in Montana I guess…important to Montana, maybe not to others…but we all have, if we didn’t before, grown to love the state…and I know Matt has learned that more than the rest of us…thanks Nik and thanks to Lewistown…

    • MN Roxanne says:

      OK Nik so now I know that a highlight in Lewiston is the Flea Beetle Collection… it was warm and sunny so they were pleased with their collection… WOW… news to me…
      Glad you have good local Smorgs…
      yes, in MN we call them Buffets… like the pop/soda saga…. depends on where you live….
      Fridays serve up “mustgo” at my house… everything in the fridge that must go :-)

  15. Donna in Texas says:

    I always thought of a smorgasboard as a glorified salad bar where you can get just about anything on the menu. I used to live in Wisconsin and learned about them then.

  16. Barbara Kiviat says:

    Really? I hate a smug smorg.

  17. Kevin from NC says:

    and for dessert after a good smorg are some smores (S’mores?)

  18. Nik In Lewistown says:

    @MN Roxanne: I’m originally from Traverse City, Mi, where we drink POP and its called Vernors! I know what you mean… But, good smorg is good smorg whatever you call it!
