This was the first time I visited Fargo's Pit Barbeque at its new location. This new location has more parking space and considerably more seating room. The brisket and potato salad were very good, and the service was exceptionally friendly and quick. I will return.

We stopped by on a weekday for dinner and we were not disappointed. We sampled their brisket, ribs, and sausage. All were fantastic but the ribs and brisket really stood out. Even the lean cut of their brisket is moist and tender with bold smoke...More

Fargo's is very good. In my travels around Texas, not the best, but certainly very good. The brisket is moist, with a decent smoke ring. The bark is okay. The smoke flavor does permeate through the meat, but not as much as I would like....More
