This Restraunt has lots of history in town! 8/11/2005

The Red Pepper Restraunt has lots of history in town and is always remembers from those who either used to live here, went to college here or just happened to come through. It still is doing great and always has great food. They now have 2 locations for you to choose from but the one on University Ave is the one that started it all. Its in a place you would not expect it to be but don't let that fool you as the food is excellent and you will get full. more

  • The Red Pepper has been a Grand Forks landmark and University of North Dakota mainstay since the 1960s. The original Red Pepper is uniquely nestled in a residential area between UND and downtown Grand Forks, and its origins can be traced as far back as 1961. However, many patrons claim that it truly became something special when the Tellmann family took it over in 1973. The story goes that while Bruce Tellmann was working as a writer, he declared to his wife, Janet, that he had to find a new way to work. When she asked why, Bruce said it was because he couldnt drive by the Red Pepper without stopping to eat. Instead of taking a new route, the couple decided to purchase the business. The Tellmanns bought the Red Pepper and turned the once small, rough neck taco shop, into a favorite stomping ground for many Grand Forks locals. While practically everything remained the same, from the name to the food, the Tellmanns add a level of pride to how they ran the business that helped the Red Pepper thrive.Over the next forty years, the Red Peppers reputation for delicious fresh-made grinder sandwiches, tasty tacos and mouth-watering homemade sauces has grown into a national passion for local and nonlocals alike. By the 1980s, Red Pepper chip sauce could be found in grocery stores throughout the Red River Valley. By the 1990s, the Red Pepper crew was shipping grinder kits all over the United States.Today, The Red Pepper is owned by Bruces son, Jeff, and his wife, Nicki and the food is still unique, fresh and delicious. Fortunately, there is more Red Pepper to go around. In 2006, the Tellmanns opened a second Red Pepper location in Grand Forks, which they dubbed Campus Place. Then in 2013, they opened a third Red Pepper location in Fargo, ND. In early 2018 they opened yet another location on the South end of Grand Forks, near Choice Health & Fitness and the ICON Sports Center.
