Spring has finally sprung. It’s time to bounce out of the house and try a few new places to eat. Let’s explore what restaurants are trending on the Fargo-Moorhead Eats Facebook page.
With nearly 18,000 page followers, there are a lot of posts that come in daily in that social media group. It’s an extremely active page that keeps me very busy. Trust me: I created it. However, only a few posts really get strong feedback. It’s an interesting gig that creates many late-night cravings. So, I’ve listed and described three mouth-watering crowd favorites below.
Perhaps the biggest sleeper in the area is Steak Night every Wednesday at the Moorhead American Legion Post 21. The once-per-week feast has recently been getting the most positive reaction on the Fargo-Moorhead Eats page.
On Wednesday evenings, you get a sirloin steak, baked potato and salad for only $12. It’s a heckuva deal. The steaks come from down the road at Butcher Block Meats in Dilworth so you know it’s quality.
The beef is grilled to order at the Legion by volunteers who obviously know a thing or two about cooking steaks. The last time I was there, mine came out as a perfect medium rare. Everyone’s steak at my table was cooked to their liking.
I know the Moorhead Legion is hardly a trendy hipster hangout, but their steak night is worth a try. You can barely get a good meal at McDonald’s for $12 these days. The Moorhead Legion’s Steak Night is a much better option than that, all the while supporting a veterans organization that does good things in the community.
Moorhead is really making strides to improve food and beverage options. Harold’s on Main, Junkyard Brewing Company, Rustica Eatery and Tavern, and Sol Ave. Kitchen are all great stops.
In Downtown Fargo, Little Brother is getting many great reviews in the Fargo-Moorhead Eats Facebook group. If you aren’t familiar, it’s an Asian fusion restaurant that features Korean, Thai and Vietnamese inspired fare.
The menu item from Little Brother that I see posted the most often on the Fargo-Moorhead Eats Facebook page is the chicken wings. Many people comment that the wings there are the best in town. I’ve tried them multiple times and they’ve got to be in the top three. I actually enjoy the Thai basil chicken dish the best there. I’m a sucker for those flavors.
Little Brother is a great stop for lunch. It’s quick and the prices are great. Since I work Downtown, you might find me there. And it’s a great spot for dinner before hitting the evening Downtown scene.
Little Brother’s bowls are the way to go, because you also get a healthy dose of kimchi and steamed rice as additional items. The owners are super nice and cook your order up quickly. They are also fun to talk to. Their story and work ethic are inspiring.
In south Fargo, GP’s Greek Kitchen is a favorite of the members in the Fargo-Moorhead Eats group. The portions are huge, and that’s no exaggeration. Everybody loves the owner who can usually be found behind the counter cooking up his Greek goodness.
If it’s super busy in the restaurant, he’ll often give customers a free salad or bowl of soup in exchange for their patience. It’s a very thoughtful gesture which is not found in the typical hustle-and-bustle restaurants of today. The products at GP’s are freshly made and the flavors show it.
At first glance, menu prices seem high at GP’s. But the portions are huge. Last time I purchased a gyro, I got two solid meals out of it. It’s a serious sandwich that’s worth the dough. The same goes if you order a salad, a large amount of fresh greens with a lot of goodies on top.
If you’re a food fanatic like me, you’ll want to try these local social media hotspots. Feel free to post your photos and reviews in the Fargo-Moorhead Eats Facebook group. It’s an active page that does have its crowd favorites, and those restaurants are favorites for good reason.
