Some of the best Barbecue you will ever eat. One of the best places in BCS. Small family run and makes you feel at home. Had sliced beef and sasuage - WOW. The ribs looked amazing also - Will get them next trip. Excellent food, price and service.

If you want the best BBQ, and a lot of it for a little money, then stop at Fargo's Put Barbecue. You'll be mighty satisfied, but don't get there too late in the day. They only serve what's been cooked fresh for that day. When it's gone, it's closing time, which could be early afternoon. Enjoy!

I love their barbecue. No one else is close. The best part is that they don't sauce the meat automatically when serving it. That allows you to taste the wonderful flavor.

Let's face it: the BCS area is basically terrible for restaurants—it's mostly chains (thanks, non-discerning college students!) and the "upscale" restaurants think that a price tag compensates for their mediocre fare. But Fargo's is THE diamond in the rough in Aggieland. I've had BBQ all over the country, and Fargo's brisket sandwich is the best I've had. Nothing short of... More

This restaurant is rated as one of the TOP 10 for BarBQ in the State of Texas. Texans are proud of their BBQ and this one definitely deserves the top of the top rating. It is melt in your mouth with a great flavor. Be aware, this restaurant often has line, so exercise patience! AND they only make a certain... More

I am a total rib girl. To me BBQ is ribs. This place, when done right, is spectacular. When done wrong, it's just wrong. But honestly most places have their off days. Juicy fall off the bone ribs is my weakness.

This place knows their stuff! Try out their rib tips on Tuesday, its a must! Call ahead though or you will miss out!! Not too pricey for BBQ either, you definitely get more than what you pay for! Don't forget to try their awesome dessert!!

The brisket and the ribs are great. The side try to get creative with the sweet baked beans but in general they are so so. No AC and limited seating but a staple of BCS.

Absolutely delightful! Brisket was tender and no fat! Baked beans were sweet and delicious, I tasted nutmeg in there somewhere! Potato salad was the perfect balance between mayo and mustard and tasted homemade. Older building, but seemed fairly clean. I would recommend this place if you are in the area.
