There are many exceptional dining experiences in Medora! The most unique is the Pitchfork Steak Fondue. Where else can you savor a fondued 12 oz. rib-eye steak as you overlook the Badlands from atop a bluff at the Tjaden Terrace. We might be a little bias but Beth Schatz Kaylor who writes the fabulous blog Rhubarb and Venison agrees, the Pitchfork Fondue and the Medora Musical make for a wonderful evening! Here are a few snippets from her recent post about the Pitchfork Fondue and Medora Musical.
“Deep fried steak. That’s supposed to be the star attraction at the Pitchfork Fondue in Medora, ND, but I’ve gotta tell you, although the steak is great, the view from the Pitchfork Fondue dining area is simply spectacular. Bring your camera.
But back to the food. As any visitor knows, when you go to Medora, you have to make a night out of 1) the Pitchfork Fondue, followed by 2) the Medora Musical. My carnivore husband LOVES the Pitchfork Fondue. As someone who treads a little heavier in vegetables than meat, even I admit that this is one tasty steak. Throw a steak in a pot of boiling hot oil and it sears immediately, creating a juicy cut with a crispy crust. As a crust fanatic, I completely approve of a crusty steak. A country band plays as diners load up their metal lunch trays (yay for reusable trays!) with coleslaw, baked beans, baked potatoes, raw veggies and Texas toast. The sides aren’t particularly interesting – they all play second fiddle to the meaty entree. “
