Decided to make the stop here on our trip along I90 and it was definitely worth it. The store was so much fun! We were there for at least 2 hours just to look at everything. We had lunch and the cafe was good and the ice cream was even better! If you ever have a chance to stop here... More

I was looking forward to this stop...wanted my free water and to see this place.....the story around it is awesome....American success story....but I found many clerks to be unfriendly and its really just a craptacular souvenir stop. Gotta do once....JUST ONCE.

On the other hand, I don't think the place has changed too much in the past 45 years. One of those sillier "bucket list" places for the midwestern-US traveler. If you've been there once, then I'm not convinced its worth the stop. My wife had never been there, so of course a stop was "mandatory." Quite crowded (too crowded to... More

Like many other reviews have said we stopped here for curiosity sake. We traveled from Rapid City to the Minuteman Missile Visitors Center. Saw a sign for it every 4 or 5 miles. We ate lunch here and the food was good, price was good. Also had donuts and pie. It is a big tourist trap. Lots of trinkets, toys,... More

First, if you are travelling with small children and you have trouble saying "no" to them, be prepared. This is a must stop along an otherwise boring highway. It is a tourist trap in every sense of the word with every imaginable trinket you can think of, but the place is unique and quirky and has been around since the... More

What a neat place. We had so much fun here! After a day in the Badlands, in the scorching heat, air conditioning was a welcome addition to our day. We thought this would be a quick little in and out stop, but spent a few hours in here. There are a lot of corny souvenirs for sale here, but it's... More

It is a giant tourist trap. It is also my kids favorite stop on our road trip. Judging by the traffic on I-90 we didn't think that Wall Drug would be as busy as it was. It was very packed! It's basically set on an old timey street in Wall, SD which kind of reminded me of the Stockyards in... More

Our friend told us we had to stop and glad we did! Cute theme, lots of variety and friendly people. Souvenirs are a bit overpriced but it is a tourist trap and there's nothing wrong with that. I was surprised by how many people were there since the highway was empty but I found out why- everyone was there! Lol... More

If you love to shop, this is the place to go. Huge area and lots of Tourists. We ate at Wall Drug and food was good. Not priced high for the amount of food you got. Coffee was really good and still costs only a nickel. They have about everything you could imagine to look at.
