While early settlers to our region quickly discovered the production of the best meat in the world, restauranteurs also took note, taking this northern delicacy to the next level. Recognizing the potential of a vacant and run-down space in downtown Fargo, a local development company seized the opportunity to introduce their newest restaurant and bar concept, No Bull Smokehouse. The three-story historic building was an ideal backdrop for JLG to create a unique and funky downtown dining experience that caters to those in search of a culinary treat reminiscent of southern smokehouses. By leaving the existing brick walls exposed and repurposing many of the original materials like the hardwood floors and tin ceiling tiles, JLG was able to preserve the time-worn character and charm. On the streetside, the team created an inviting front façade that engages the downtown streetscape with the enticing aromas of Northern Red and White Oak smoking woods. Diners can even satisfy their “meat tooth” outside on the back patio where festivities continue long into summer evenings. Downtown diners may love the building’s “country cool” vibes, but they always return for the mouthwatering low and slow beef brisket.
