A national restaurant chain is bringing its all-you-can-eat family-style buffet concept to Fargo.

Golden Corral Buffet and Grill, a Raleigh-N.C.-based company known for its sirloin steak buffet, plans to open a restaurant at 4301 23rd Ave. S.

The $1.5 million, 11,087-square-foot restaurant will be next to retailer Gander Mountain at the intersection of Interstate 94 and 45th Street, according to a building permit application filed at Fargo City Hall.

The Fargo location will be the third Golden Corral franchise in North Dakota, joining restaurants in Grand Forks and Bismarck.

Nationally, Golden Corral operates more than 480 restaurants in 38 states, according to the company's corporate Web site at www.goldencorral.com .

The Fargo franchise's owner is listed as Fargo-based Hillfield Holdings on the restaurant's building permit.

A spokesman for Hillfield Holdings could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.

A Golden Corral employee at the restaurant's Grand Forks location said the Fargo franchise will open in four months.

The restaurant's menu includes buffet items such as pasta, pizza, fresh vegetables and salad and dessert bars. Golden Corral is known for its steak kiosk, where meat is grilled in front of customers.

In 2005, Golden Corral was named the No. 1 steakhouse franchisor in the U.S. by Entrepreneur magazine, the company's Web site states.
