FARGO – The Moe’s Southwest Grill in Fargo is now permanently closed.

In June, a spokesperson for Focus Brands, which oversees Moe’s Southwest Grill, told The Forum that the restaurant was temporarily closed. A reopening date was not given.

A spokesperson for the Atlanta-based Focus Brand confirmed to The Forum on Tuesday, August 24 that the closure is now final. The Fargo location at 2511 Kirsten Lane was “independently owned and operated,” the spokesperson said via email. “A number of factors play into the decision to close a location,” the spokesperson continues.

The exact closing date is unknown.


Moe’s website lists 683 restaurants

nationwide, with the exception of the now permanently closed Fargo location. The next closest location is in Sioux Falls.

Other alternatives to Mexican-themed food in the area include a Chipotle Mexican Grill, which opened in March at 3061 25th St. S. Further afield, El Vaqueros Taqueria, and Mexican Restaurant reopened along 13th Ave. s.

Spirit Halloween will open soon in the former Gordmans at 5100 13th Ave. S. in Fargo.

Silverstar Car Wash planned for former Country Greenery site

Construction will begin soon on a new Silverstar Car Wash at 2901 13th Ave. S. in Fargo, the location where Country Greenery used to be.

Operations Manager Andrea Vetos confirmed the new location to The Forum on Wednesday, August 24. The 13th Avenue location is expected to be the fourth Silverstar location to open here. It joins locations at 4475 Calico Drive S. and 2980 52nd Ave. S. in Fargo and a location at 2120 Sheyenne St. in West Fargo that is expected to open in September.

Vetos said additional Silverstar car washes are planned at 2511 University Drive S. and 2901 Uptown Way S. in Fargo. When those open, Vetos believes Silverstar will have approximately 25 locations in the Midwest.
