The Red Pepper is holding a “soft opening” for its “unpretentious Mexican” food at their new Fargo location at 1115 19th Ave. N. in the Happy Harry’s Plaza.

“The Pepper” has been a mainstay up in Grand Forks, mostly for inebriated college students.

Fellow blogger Jeni Flaa went to check the place out for the first time, but unfortunately had to turn back due to the extreme wait and slow-moving line.

In line, people were yelling to keep the door shut. Despite the publicity for the restaurant, the owners did not provide any way to guide the long line so it was a crowd of people struggling to keep any semblance of a line. Lots of people letting their families in so the line never seemed to get shorter. Waited for 20 minutes and moved ahead but only a few steps. Puzzled that hardly anyone seemed to leave the restaurant with their orders. Heard the ding of the microwave-also puzzled how it takes so long to put together food that mostly needs to be assembled and nuked.

Jeni said she’ll try again when the initial buzz dies down.

The Red Pepper Fargo will be fully open starting Monday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The Red Pepper, a staple for inebriated college students in the northern Red River Valley, will open its first Fargo location in the next week or two.

The restaurant, announcing on its Facebook page, will open up shop “in a week or two” in the Happy Harry’s Plaza in north Fargo right next to the NDSU campus.

I’ve let you know my thoughts on the place before.

I imagine it’ll be extremely popular. It’s good drunk food, in that it would be nearly disgusting to ingest while sober.

I might make a few enemies saying this.

But it must be said: The Red Pepper is not good. It is terrible. The only time it can be justified is if you’re drunk off your ass at 2 a.m., stumbling into the shabby restaurant and ordering three of everything.
