“Stuck in the 80's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2011

Here's a bit of Fargo history that hasn't changed since it opened back in the early 80's. I hadn't been to the place in at least 20 years, when it was a local hot spot, and decided to see what it was like now. I was so surprised to see nothing had really changed since back when it was built.

The beer is reasonable, but the atmosphere is early Urban Cowboy (without the mechanical bull). Sorta' fits with the 100 idling semi's outside.

It's not for the person who frequents Old Chicago, but if you're into sitting in a "working man's bar" where expletives fly constantly, then this place is for you. If your date rates anything higher than an "8", then you're guaranteed she'll be approached by several of the inebriated patrons wanting to get to know her better.

Not my thing, but I'm sure there's a lot of folks who would be OK with the environment.

“Cant beat the WB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2008

Been there done that! I visit the WB every chance I get when I am in Fargo. Drink specials Rock! Music entertainment is at all times the best in the FM area. The Bartenders Fast and Sexxxy what a combo, Stop in when its light out and check out Bartender J out- YUMMIE

And the best part If you really had a good night and find your self just to waisted to call the cab there is the Flying J Motel just across the parking lot. And I personal recommend Be for you hit the sheets Have breakfast at the truck stop which is located in the same building as the WB. Hay This is the best of the best!! You get drinks, music, breakfast, hotel. The night is set. Hell Ya I'm on my way meet me there!

“Don't judge a book by it's cover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2006

Sure it's attached to a truck stop, but everytime I go there I have a blast. The staff is so quick and friendly, unlike some of the other places that have live music in Fargo. I'm just not a fan of waiting 30 minutes for an expensive drink, which is why I love the WB!!
