Doolittle’s Woodfire Grill

On a recent trip to Fargo my husband and I stopped at a little town called Alexandria to look for a place to have dinner. We tried to sidestep the fast food chains and came across a “new” restaurant called Doolittle’s Woodfire Grill.

The restaurant was busy but had ample seating around 6 p.m. when we arrived. We were seated immediately and our waitperson came quickly. Looking around, my husband noticed that the surroundings looked like an Applebee’s and I agreed. The inside has had an upgrade though and looks like an upscale sports bar.

For dinner, my husband had the Chicken Rice Soup with the Chicken Sandwich for his entree. The Chicken Rice Soup was okay — similar to ones I’ve tasted at other restaurants. But the Chicken Sandwich — wow! The chicken was so tender. I’m accustomed to eating dry chicken as most restaurants don’t seem to know how long to cook it. Very good!

I originally was going to have a salad but didn’t want to worry about portion sizes and whether they could put the sauce on the side (I find that restaurants tend to add too much vinaigrette on their salads) so I opted for the Mediterranean Flatbread.

It looked good but was a tad too crispy (and I like crispy). So — it was okay.

Service here was really good and the environment was what one would expect at a sports bar that has TV’s (which this one does) – a tad noisy. Overall though, it’s a good place to eat.
