Not worth the price. – I just went to Fargo Cattle Co tonight with my daughter. We wanted to try the local steakhouse for our monthly girl's night out!
We ordered potato skins ($6.99) for an appetizer. For her main meal, my daughter ordered the junior sirloin with fries and drink ($5.99 + $2.29=$8.28). I ordered the 12 oz ribeye with fettuccine and soup of the day (clam chowder) as the sides and a coke to drink ($18.99+$3.99,charged extra for soup even though it should have come with the meal, + $2.29=$25.27). The total cost for my 8 year old and myself, including tax, $44.09.
Oh, I also forgot to mention that when I ordered my daughter's meal, I had to tell the waitress that the fries came with it. We started to get charged extra for that as well.
The steak was great. The soup and fettuccine weren't hot enough and the taste was okay at best. Portions were small for the price. If I'm paying $44.09 for 1.5 people to eat, I expect better quality. Basically, I wasn't impressed.
When it was time to leave, the waitress put the ticket on our table without a payment holder or anything. We looked for her to ask where to pay but, we ended up waiting for her for a few minutes at the front door. Heck, if we didn't feel like paying, I guess we could have walked right out. No one paid any attention to us until another waitress walked up and asked if we were being helped. Then our waitress finally showed up and took my card to process the payment.
I was hoping to have a local restaurant to frequent with my children. I guess I'll have to drive the distance to Raleigh or Knightdale next time.
Avoid it if you can – Very poor quality for the price. Fargo Steakhouse is going to leave you with a bad taste in your mouth or a bad attitude. Service is below par - untrained wait staff will treat you like you are at the Waffle House. Menu selections look great but don't be deceived. Salad bar is usually OK but lettuce is typically a bit wilty and not very fresh. Bread is good and usually hot (one of the few good things). The entrees...this is sad...are almost always overcooked. It doesn't matter if you get steak, chicken, ribs, etc. it will always seem like it was cooked an hour ago and then left to stay warm in a too hot oven and cooked itself dry. Every time. Also, the beef cuts are never quite what you expect from the descriptions - always thinner and lots more gristle than you might expect for the price. I would say they are overpriced by 30% - a $15 entree that should be $11. It adds up. Desserts aren't worth discussing - stop over at Food Lion and pick up some Ho-Hos for a better dessert.
