“Love this place”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Comfortable atmosphere, great food, cold beer, friendly service, fair prices. Of all the food joints in this town, Speedway is the favorite of my wife and me. It's just a nice place to have lunch or dinner. The ribs fall off the bone and the BBQ sauce is just the right mix of sweet and tangy. The steaks and burgers are always a good choice a well. I've seldom had to wait to be served and the food is always hot. It's nothing real fancy, just a nice clean place to eat and have a drink. They have recently remodeled and installed booths along the East wall. Nice! It's a great place for couples, family, friends, business & solo dining. It's kind of off the beaten path, so it tends to not be over run with diners like the restaurants on the South end of town, unless there happens to be a UND Game in town.

“Speedway is an old favorite!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We enjoy Speedway. We usually order ribs and a tall beer. The price has gone up but what hasn't. The bread loaf with dinner was very small and the salad all pretty plain and unadorned. But the ribs were good and plentiful. We got there later and got right in.

“Great ribs , steak and salmon”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We've been going to Grandforks, ND with our job for several years and we finally went to the Speedway bar 7 grill. We will never wait this long again. Everyone of us were very pleased with our food. The service that we received from our server NICK was really good. He did everything just right, stayed on top of drinks, food and small talk. Wonderful!!!!

“Speedway is consistently good”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

I usually dine at the Speedway about twice a month and always find it to be good food! Speedway always offers a number of specials to choose from at lunch and dinner time. My favorite special during lunch is the ribs. They are tender fall off the bone and the sauce is nice and tangy. In the evening I usually mix it up but always default to some type of "Red Meat". I would highly recommend the Breaded TidBits appetizer with the Speedway Sauce! They are a real crowd pleaser. If I am dining on a Friday or Saturday evening I try to avoid the peak rush time because of the fact that the Speedway gets very busy.
