These Are The 10 Best Dive Bars In The State Of North Dakota
These are the 10 BEST dive bars in the state of North Dakota!
That's a bold statement, but I just got done counting more than 1,000 votes from our listeners, readers, and fans, so I'm sticking to it. This is actually a story a year and a half in the making.
As a big hunter and fisherman, I enjoy stopping in to the local establishments and having a beer with the locals in small towns all across North Dakota. This has taken me to some interesting-looking places. I still remember the time when I stopped into Gunny's in Elgin and one of the patrons looked at me in my orange pheasant hunting vest and said to me, "This ain't no college bar." Ouch, not a warm welcome from him but it wasn't long and locals were warming up to my friends and me. Another time we grabbed a beer at the Cannonball Saloon in Regent after chasing some roosters, and some mom asked if I would take her daughter to prom. Yes, this was a few years ago, but something I'll never forget being way out of high school.
