2. Siggy's Sandwich - Watford
Creative and downright tasty sandwich combinations are what makes Siggy's great. They are constantly putting out new things, many of which are only available for a limited time, so you can always look forward to something new here no matter how many times you go. They've got the classics, and they've got topping combinations between bread you may think are crazy but are actually amazing. You can't go wrong with a good sandwich and you definitely can't go wrong with Siggy's Sandwich.

7. Rhombus Guys - Grand Forks and Fargo
Rhombus Guys is a pretty well-known spot by now. Their pizza is amazing - what you are looking at above this is tater tot hot dish pizza, which has me drooling already! The atmosphere here is also a big part of it. In the summer you can dine out on the rooftop and enjoy the view of the city while indulging in a slice of tasty pizza. Rhombus Guys is one of those places you have to go to at least once for the experience alone.
8. Little Blue Elephant - Minot
Nestled in downtown Minot is Thai food at its best! Little Blue Elephant's food is authentic and scrumptious. This isn't just your average take-out food; this is well-made meals of pure goodness. It deserves a visit if you haven't been already...or a repeat visit if you have.

10. Würst Bier Hall - Fargo
Although this place is definitely a little more beer-centric, their food is also awesome. It's not just your usual bar food; it is delicious German food of all types. They specialize in sausages and bratwurst of all types - even things like wild boar or jackalope. Don't worry, vegetarians, they do have some options for you as well, including a house special and various soups and salads. Definitely a little something different but very worth trying out.
