FARGO - Two downtown Fargo food cart favorites will soon be offered in a bricks and mortar restaurant across from North Dakota State University's northside main campus.

Fargo Fillies & Mac Daddy’s, a Street Food Eatery, is expected to open in early October in the Bison Block, 1414 12th Ave. N.

“We’re shooting for Oct. 6. We’re hoping, we're trying our best to get open by that day,” said Anthony Bachman.

Bachman co-owns the popular downtown Fargo food carts Fargo Fillies and Mac Daddy's with his wife, Sara.

Fargo Fillies, which serves Philadelphia-style cheesesteak sandwiches and hoagies, has been feeding souls since October 2017. It was joined by Mac Daddy’s Gourmet Mac and Cheese, which serves specialty macaroni and cheese bowls, in September 2020.

“We do the late-night bar scene on Broadway, and a lot of our clients are NDSU students,” Bachman said Wednesday, Sept. 22. When the opportunity to move the comfort food concepts into an open restaurant bay in the Bison Block presented itself, “We thought it would be a good choice.”


Bachman is also involved with VIP Catering.

Business looks like it could be really good, if the feedback he's gotten is any indicator, Bachman said.

“We have a lot of people already pulling on the door thinking we’re open, so we’re hoping to get open soon, so they can check it out,” he said. “We’re excited to open and serve north Fargo.”
