This is the very best Texas BBQ I have found. Everything is served home style and the meat is delicious. There is a variety of side dishes available. There is limited seating inside. Worth the drive there and I will be back!

Just got my "passport" from TM and I have 50 bbq joints to try over the next 2 years. Fargo's is the closest to me so I went there first. As always the service is great, with Alan (the pit master) greeting us at the door. I had not tried the chicken before, it was great. Moist and tasty with... More

I go to Bryan often to visit family and usually will try to stop by Fargo's for barbeque. They have some of the best ribs I have ever had and the other items are also good. Located in a small building and family operated it gained attention several years ago from a well known Texas magazine. Most of the people... More

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.
