LARIMORE, N.D. — The harvest is at hand. Streets are under repair. And we were out and about visiting Larimore at lunch time.

We found it — the place to go known as DB’s The Station was open on Towner, the main avenue. We managed to find parking although there was street or electrical construction under way.

Inside, a friendly greeting from Jody. She cleans, she serves. And if she doesn’t know you, she gets acquainted. Meanwhile, Dustin Barber, the owner, was in the kitchen — cooking.

Lunch in Larimore for me was a BLT sandwich on toast and a burger for Gail Hagerty (GH). Yes, and dessert — apple pie. Enough to eat almost to last until Tuesday.

There is friendly seating for groups at DB’s The Station. People tend to be friendly as they boost Larimore High School teams and students. Many sit in groups on the main floor. Some prefer the more quiet and previous seats towards the front of the restaurant.


Regular customers look for pot roast on Tuesdays. Many come in for pie. They count on friendly service.

The restaurant had a friendly home town atmosphere. The women’s rest room is large and convenient and rates good for cleanliness.
