    Give me a break the best BBQ in town is the McRib, Of course Dairy Queen is a close second, and the pound cake at the Conoco station is to die for

    Like I said, I must have caught them on a bad day. From most of what I have heard, Fargo's is top notch and I do wish them all the best.....and I hope those of you "in the know" continue to enjoy your little secret. [wink]

    If you think that C&J's or Rudy's should even be mentioned in the same breath as Fargo's, then you don't know BBQ. Continue to settle for mediocre BBQ and let those of us in the know enjoy our little secret.

    Ahhh... A subject many red blooded Texans have an opinion on. Personally, I think my old son makes the best bbq in his back yard. C&J's (the original one out on Harvey Road) is great. Like things about J. Cody's, and Martins has been around forever and does a great job. I read Vaughn's review in the Houston paper a couple years ago and gave Fargo's a try. Maybe I caught them on a bad day. I think I probably did, but I probably won't try them again, but I do wish them much success.

    I see some of the owners of other BBQ places in town have made their appearance on this story..... Sad. Pathetic, really.

    Sorry, C&J's is still the best in town and the surrounding areas.

    Not to mention the awesome one of a kind pasta salad and homeade pound cake is to die for!! Way to go Fargo's, very well deserved. This place is very unrated, its probably because the location doesn't get much positive media attention. I bet you try Fargo's, you'll will never return to the no seasoning C&J, Rudy's, JCody's, or even Martins...GOOD JOB Fargo's BBQ PIT. Best in Town is my opinion.

    I never knew this place existed, but I'm sure going to find my way there now.
    Good for them on their business practice of not taking out a line of credit, why make a bank your partner?
    I just hope they don't get ruined by the exposure and change things, but from the article it doesn't sound like they are people who would let this go to their head.

    Please, don't go there. The incredible ribs, tasty brisket, outstanding chicken are nothing anyone would want. We won't even mention that homemade pound cake. Seriously, they deserve all this exposure, but the down side is no more picking up take-out Saturday evenings because they're sold out. Sigh.
