Work takes me to a place half way between St. Paul and Fargo, to a town called Alexandria, Minn. We have to eat dinner and breakfast.. Is there any thing besides Bennigans or Fat Daddy's? Please!

I think you are screwed...
The restaurant wasteland between MSP and Fargo is vast. Dated supper clubs are king in many places, and franchises fill in the cracks. With that said, I am sure there are some OK places out there.
One place you may want to try is 6th Ave Wine and Ale. I haven't been there but I came across it a while back and it gets pretty good reviews on Yelp.
You can also check out the local wineries ; ) Alexandria Lakes has its own AVA if you believe it. Good luck on that one. I am sure you will find a lot of sweet stuff, and I won't vouch for the wine at all. Below is one winery.
Maybe this is too late. . .
I spend a little time in "Alex" from time to time. I usually go to Doolittles, which is overpriced but fairly reliable (although last time I went there, I ordered a dish with shiitake mushrooms in it, and they served the stems along with the caps - pet peeve!).
Please share your experiences - I am interested!
Couldn't get place link to work before. . .
