This was my third visit to Fargos. I do not review a BBQ joint till I have been at least three times. It's hard to get good BBQ consistently. Well this joint knocks it out of the park. I have eaten most of the TM top 50. This one will be on the best of the best. Better than Snows and as good as Franklins in Austin. Take out only, but I think they have a sit down resteraunt coming soon. Hope it's stays as good as always. Awesome Place. Only complaint is not enough napkins!!!

I have eaten "que" at many of the best BBQ joints in Texas, KC, Memphis and Lexington NC and Fargo's is up in the top ten nationwide. Their brisket (both fatty and lean) is tender with an excellent smoke ring and taste. Pork ribs and sausage are also good, but the chicken is "out of bounds" delicious. Baked beans are memorable with a hint of cinnamon. The counterstaff is friendly and efficient. The two things that you need to be aware of before you go-- this is a true BBQ joint! They only take cash and there is no dining room-- It is fun to sit on the tailgate and watch the traffic on Texas Ave as you devour thick juicy hunks of smoky meat.

In College Station for the Florida-Texas A&M game and we were on the hunt for proper Texas BBQ for our tailgate. After much research, we decided on Fargo's after reading the rave reviews on the BBQ blogs. Fargo's does not disappoint and, in fact, exceeds expectations. The brisket was tender, pratically falling apart like a pot roast. The sausage, peppery and juicy. Ribs were fall off the bone and it was the best bbq chicken I have ever had. The sides we were similarly outstanding. We had the potato salad and baked beans. Everyone agreed that the baked beans were by far the best baked beans they had eaten in their life. We were all trying to guess the secret ingredient. Cinnamon? Allspice? Either way, not to be missed. And everyone at Fargo's could not have been nicer. Take out and cash only. If you are going to the Bryan-College Station area, do not miss out on Fargo's.

Best BBQ we ever had! Family and I drove down 4.5 hours from North of Dallas to try it out after reading about it on the Texas BBQ posse blog. We tried family plate with chicken, sausage, brisket & ribs and came with bread and 2 sides. It was worth every mile of our trip! Tips: Fargo's is take-out only, cash only & go as close to their open time at 11a as possible because they sold out of meat within 1.5 hours the day we went!!! Really is that good!
