Brisket, ribs, baked beans, macaroni & cheese, sausage, cream cheese pound cake, iced sweet tea....mmmmmmm!!! All of it was EXCELLENT. Next time, chopped beef, potato salad, green beans, chicken and iced sweet tea. He's made a believer out of me. Could give Franklin's in Austin a run for their money!

This was a great place to eat. The experience was perfect from being greeted by the owner who shakes your hand and takes your order to amazing food. Between the 6 of us who ate there we tried most everything on the menu and everything was exceptional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Stopped by here for lunch, this place has some of the best ribs I have ever had!! They were so tender and the rub was amazing. You didn't even need any BBQ sauce for them. The chicken was also fantastic!! This is a fantastic place to get some good BBQ! We will be back next time we are in town!

Fargo's has been much heralded by many, so I was excited to have the opportunity to meet and eat there. You are given a choice of lean or moist brisket. I chose lean. The brisket is very good, not outstanding. However, I also got the sausage, and the sausage is one of the best I have ever eaten anywhere. If... More

Arrived about 20 minutes till opening on Saturday morning. They helped me decide how much of each thing to order for the size party I had at home. Even though they were busy, they still loaded the food in my car for me without my even asking. Very friendly service! The food was excellent. We had ribs, chicken, rib tips,... More

we go every time we are in bryan tx. the brisket is always tender and smokey, chicken is moist, ribs fall off the bone, and the sausage is very good also. better get there early for lunch as the line starts forming 20 min. before opening. the line goes fast however.

You cannot go to Bryan/College Station without going here if you love BBQ. Alan and Belinda are really nice, down home folks, and you would never know they rate consistently in the top 10 BBQ restaurants in the whole state of Texas. I got sliced beef and ribs. Both were great. I always get enough to bring home. This is... More

My husband and I were visiting our daughter at A & M and went there for dinner. I enjoyed how friendly everyone was that worked there. The case held beautiful barbeque and sides. We ordered moist brisket, it was fork-tender it fell apart. The ribs were huge and delicious and the sausage had a great smoke to it. Their mac... More

Fargo's is some of the best barbeque in Texas. It is slow cooked to perfection, but beware - they only prepare so much and when it is gone, it is gone! There are only a few tables, so be prepared to "take out" your dinner.
