      There aren't too many places to eat in Rolla, ND so the local popularity of North 40 is reason enough to stop off here. But if you need another excuse, how about the fact that this was also once the choice of a certain North Dakota boy by the name of Robert Thomas Velline? Better known as Bobby Vee, he rocketed to fame at the age of just 15 when he and his band volunteered to take the stage in Moorhead, Minnesota after the billed line-up - Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper - were all killed when their airplane crashed. Bobby himself died in October 2016, aged 73.

      If you go:
      North 40 is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
