Where to eat in Grand Forks.


Recommended Posts

great wall buffet has a better Mongolian grill then huhot does

Even if it does, it loses serious points for being a filthy mess of a Chinese buffet joint. Neither of GF's Chinese buffets are worth the trouble. HuHot serves hot, fresh food. No health inspectors running around with thermometers. And they are ALWAYS tending to the meat and veggie stations.

What's with the Popolino's hate? Their crust is delicious. Maybe it's a difference of style preference or something...but they are the best pizza in town IMO. I don't make a trip back to GF without hi

Now THIS would make me stand for the anthem...twice. God bless these people.

Go to Olive Garden. It got a great review!

In case you missed 'em, Pita Pit has in the past few months closed BOTH of its former locations in Grand Forks (near REA and on S. Washington next to Taco John's). They have re-opened a single store in the strip right next to Five Guys on 32nd Ave (in front of Hobby Lobby/Ashley/Kohl's). Don't know that I love the zombie-like move south (seems kind of inevitable, but still a bit of an eff ewe to UND students and staff), but I will definitely continue to support them.

You know the Pita Pit on Washington lasted longer in that building than anything else ever did. Trivia time. What was original restaurant that the building was built for? More trivia. What was where Taco John's and the Pita Pit sits and what was on the north side of Taco John's?

HuHot in Bismarck is always getting written up for health code violations. It certainly does "feel" cleaner than the average buffet though.

Giovanni's the answer to one of those questions?

Giovannis was there but that was after the flood. The building was built around 1976. But not the correct answer.

Arthur Treacher's was there, but I thought Taco Johns was there at the same time.

Winner! Taco John's was there also. It was built as an Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips. But what was there before the restaurants? And what was in the building between Taco John's and Denny's Bar? More trivia time. What was where Taco Bell on 13th is now? What was where Burger King is now? What was where Gramma's is now? There were two different things there. What was where Wendy's is?

Was there a King Leo's on the BK property?

BINGO! The Big Leo I always thought was better than a Big Mac. If you remember King Leos do you remember what was where Simonson's is? These really are not that easy of questions. These places all have been gone for a real long time. If you are not over 45 they will be tough.

The only reason I got King Leo's was because my mom worked there when she was in HS and I remember her talking about it as a kid! :lol:

Taco Time where Taco Bells was. Henry's Hamburgers where Gramma's is. Not sure on Wendy's.

Not sure on all of them, but who knows the list of restaurants that used to be in the old Dagwood's building?

42nd st. Fuddruckers? It was built as a burger place. Can't think of the name but there was one also in 5000 block of France Ave. in Edina. Maroon and gold colors. Something Barn I think.

Topper's? Same concept as Fuddrucker's.

I don't remember Ugly's. I'm thinking it was empty for a long time before Topper's.

I think this is true...there was a period of time where that building was vacant before Topper's. Ugly's would've been early to mid-80s based on my recollection.
