Restaurants in North Dakota

The dishes to look for in North Dakota are upper Midwest comfort foods such as hot dish casseroles, hot beef sandwiches and hot turkey sandwiches. Small-town cafes still reflect the ancestral roots of their citizens, offering bierocks, summer sausage, cabbage rolls, potato dumplings, and knoephla soup. While you won’t find it on too many menus, Scandinavian lutefisk and lefse are popular at church dinners and community events. North Dakota is not too far from Lake Superior, so it makes sense that the town of Garrison considers itself the Walleye Capital of America.
