Trade Talk: Speedway restaurant becomes Legends

A West Fargo restaurant has a new name and menu.

Legends Grill N Bar and Legends Event Center, 680 Main Ave., was formerly the Speedway Restaurant, Lounge and Event Center.

“The menu is completely different,” said co-owner Kari Wheri.

The focus is on sandwiches, burgers, pizza or lavosh, several different basket options, prime rib and steak, she said.

“Eventually we will have the build-your-own sandwich kind of concept,” Wheri said.

The event center, which seats about 500 people, will host special receptions, business meetings, benefits and parties.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday and Friday; and 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday. To contact Legends, call (701) 281-2388.

New bar to open this summer in south Fargo

A new bar is coming to the Osgood area in south Fargo.

Dave Erickson, who owns Dave’s Southside Tap in Moorhead, plans to open The Bulldog Tap by late July.

The Bulldog Tap will be in the Shoppes at Osgood shopping center at 4265 45th St. S., Suite 165.

“Lots of people live or work in the surrounding area and want a simple neighborhood bar where they can enjoy drinks, food and friends,” Erickson said.

It will have a neighborhood sports bar atmosphere, with several beers on tap, a full bar, burgers, several big-screen television sets and blackjack, he said.

The bar’s website, www.bulldogtap.com, is being developed and should be completed by the end of the month, Erickson said.
