4. Pitchfork Steak Fondue - Medora
There is no other place in North Dakota quite like it, and it's all part of the Medora experience.

6. The Woodhouse Restaurant - Bismarck
Take a step back in time at The Woodhouse Restaurant. This classic diner claims to have the world's best hamburgers, and delicious they are indeed. But what really makes this place stand out is the fact that each table has an old phone that you call into the kitchen with to place your order. No waiter or waitress comes by to take it; you simply pick up the phone and tell the cooks directly! That fun aspect plus the fact that their food is top notch makes this a fantastic place to eat.
The Woodhouse Restaurant is located at 1825 N 13th St., Bismarck, ND 58501.
7. The Boiler Room - Fargo, Wahpeton
The only place you can find a restaurant underground like this one is in North Dakota. The Boiler Room is located beneath a historic building in downtown Fargo and sticks to a fun, industrial theme. Their menu is full of yummy yet unusual options, like chicken and waffles or a spicy shrimp mac and cheese. They recently opened a second location in Wahpeton, ND, that is just as great (though not quite as underground).
The Boiler Room has two locations. The Fargo location is at 210 Broadway N, Ste. 90, Fargo, ND 58102. The Wahpeton location is at 404 Dakota Ave., Wahpeton, ND 58075.
