Amazing food & good friendly service. I saw them advertised in the Texas Monthly magazine as one of the top BBQ places in Texas. So I HAD to stop by & see for myself. Be careful coming here during football season & it's game day, the line is likely to be outside @ the other end of the parking lot.... More

One of the top 10 BBQ places in TX. Sells out every day -- on Saturdays by 11am they'll be out of the favorites. During the week, they'll start running out of stuff by 5pm. Absolutely worth the wait. Many people get orders to take home, but there is room to eat in.

While there are several barbeque places in College Station, this is hands down the best. Its often crowded--but they do takeout which makes for a very tasty home cooked meal--or party fare. Prices are quite reasonable. Service is very friendly. The patrons represent folks from all races--attesting to fact everyone loves good barbeque.

Best BBQ I've ever had. It's all about great ingredients and preparation. No muss no fuss--just incredible. Had the brisket and potato salad.

This little place has a big yummy taste.. We went to Waco one day and tried their best and it did not compare.. Visiting from Oregon where everyone is raised with the family's BBQ special sauce! At first we thought Texas "what?" This place was so good and the staff was great even if the man at the counter laugh... More

I've heard for a long time about how good Fargo's BBQ is, but just never took the time to drive there as it isn't close to our house. But today I joined friends for lunch and I was very pleased with the fare. It isn't an especially fancy place, but it was very clean and the staff was friendly. Since... More

Awesome. Eat there. You'll dream of it afterwards. In a good way. Really, this is some of the best BBQ I've eaten. The brisket gets a lot of love, but I'm more of a ribs guy. Happily the ribs are outstanding.

Such amazing bbq! Had the bbq sandwich with onions and pickles. Side of baked beans ( made with a touch of cinnamon )and Mac n cheese. Sandwich was huge. You get to choose the size of your sides. Friendly service, clean dining area. Can't wait to return. Thank you!

I got two chickens to go. There was no wait. The chicken was very good and it would be hard to find better. They packed more than just two chickens. It was more like 2 1/2 chickens. We wish we would have tried the ribs!
