Fargo to Grand Forks to St James,MB recs??

Heading that way next week and am wondering about any 'interesting' stops along that corridor---actually anywheres from Wisconsin west along the 'I'---that deserves attention--will stop at Sandys donuts in the Fargo area--and the Red Pepper in GFK but other than that pretty wide open to most any kind of road food
thanks

Delicious finds between Bayfield and Chetek, WI?

anytime when heading towards the Bayfield/Ashland area a stop at the Delta Diner is highly recommended

by coincidence had lunch at Christians today--soups were very good(mushroom, corn/sausage), and my flatbread was excellent, haven't made it to Father Fats yet and Silver Coach isn't worth a stop

Redeye and great dane have pretty good food--we visit red eye more 'cause the beer is better! Ei Tequila Salsa is our favorite 'mexican' place in central Wiscsonsin--good chips/salsa--like their carnitas--chile relleno maybe better than average plus a big selection of good tequilas

If you want just a bar with a decent burger try the brisket burger at Luckys Eastside pub--darn tasty

Basic Boneless Roasted Leg of Lamb

if I debone a leg 'o lamb---is lamb stock something to make or just smoke it and let the dog chew it--guess never really have lamb bones for stock like chicken, etc

Basic Hummus

good basic hummus but have found just peeling the garbanzos make a world of difference

agree absolutely---Kathy's drive in has good burgers--Baker Street Grill has changed hands I believe and haven't been there in a couple months--lots of sometime good tavern grub around but most are hit or miss!! Otherwise just average Wisconsin Supper Club food--haven't been to the Mead lately to check it out since all the changes We don't go out in this area much but do take road trips for most anything on a day off--just had very good 'street' tacos from a taco truck in Sparta
An old friend has opened a place in rosholt--the brick pit iirc--solid pub grub--fresh bbq on weekends that should be ok since that he learned on my team<lol>
Would love to find a consistently good place for a slice of pie in the area---gets kinda far to go to The Pie Lady(Stockholm,Wi) or Main Street Cafe in Bloomer for a fix

thats the place--that location hasn't done well for anybody for a long time hopefully Ryan and Amy will succeed!! They have been a catering only business for a long time and needed a base--have been there a few times and like a lunch place other then taverns in the area--and the desserts usually rock!!

a new place has opened in Wisc Rapids(lunch only) that has nice homemade food with a creative touch--Great Expectations on the east side of town on Hiway 54---the desserts are made in house too and are most excellent

and I like being a table captain so I can pick and choose what I taste---the best bbq that have eaten has been at a bbq contest and the worst I have ever tasted has been at a bbq contest

good luck on your quest to be a master judge--I've judged at least 40 times over the years(and cooked about 50 contests) but would rather be table captain then a judge!

Best Hot Chicken in Nashville

princes is the only one I've tried--and liked it, Ordered 1/2 medium and it was enough to make me sweat--- the bread and pickles help too... it went well with the silo of beer from the liqour store next door. Planning on trying one of the others the end of the month when returning to that area

Back from Memphis report on Bar B Que

we go to Memphis twice a year(birthdays)---don't like Paynes much--for some reason really like Ribs at the Rendevous. Think the Commissary(germantown) is about the best in the area(pies rock too)--best pork is at Morris Grocery in Eads, Tn(east of memphis abit)--maybe the best pork sandwich(only choice) in many years of bbq in 15states!

One night in Kansas City, MO and interested in BBQ

Oklahoma Joes is our favorite---LC's is good too as well as Smoking Guns in North KC----but given your restrictions you will like either JS or AB
