Fargo’s Pit BBQ in Bryan, TX.

While in Austin for the Texas Book Festival, I was lucky enough to hear about another African American-owned-and-operated barbecue restaurant in Bryan, Texas (not too far from College Station, home of Texas A&M). Daniel Vaughn, Texas Monthly’s barbecue editor, love this place, and listed it as a fave in his great book Prophets of Smoked Meat. Even though it would be a two-hour drive, I decided to make the trip. I’m sooo glad that I did!

The smoked meat case.

Your order is taken while you’re in line, before you get to the counter.

Desiring some variety,  I ordered sliced brisket, a beef rib, pork spareribs, sausage, smoked chicken, collards and cabbage, mac ‘n’ cheese, superlative peach cobbler, white bread, and a sweet/unsweet tea mix. All of the edible products come wrapped in paper.

As you can see, Fargo’s gets a lot of business on thd Aggies’s game days.

Another great place to support if you’re ever in the area.
