Ok first time in Sioux Falls SD fresh off the plane and starving. Look up reviews picked this place no disappointments here. 50's style diner really good menu and service was excellent. Food came out timely and was well prepared and really good flavor. The beef dip was great the salmon salad with shiracha ranch was really good.

Good food - we had the hot turkey snadwich with mashed potato and son had a burger. Desert was yummy - hot fudge sundae. Our server was lovely - really smiley and attentive.

What's unfortunate is that I don't know when I'll be back here. There were so many things on the menu I wanted to try. I settled on the chicken and waffles which was great. The chicken was hand-breaded and very tasty. The only negative is the kid's menu is a little pricey.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to the Black Hills. Cute dinner, great food. I had the omelet which was incredible. They had banana nut bread with chocolate chips, and I bought a slice for later, yummy. So good. Would stop and eat here again.

My husband and I were passing through Sioux Falls, on our way to the Badlands and decided it was time for lunch. We spotted this place on the corner and parked the car. It was really busy and the servers were hustling to keep drinks flowing, ice cream served and tables cleared. The atmosphere was lively and friendly! I ordered... More

We are on the tail end of a family vacation and at the last minute decided to come through SF. Hubby wanted to go to Minerva's but lucky for us they are closed on Sunday. We walked down the street to the diner. We had stopped here in the past for the milkshakes but had not eaten here. Hubby had... More

We are just passing through. We came here with 3 kids and all had a fantastic meal! The meatloaf was outstanding! Also had the coney dog with chili. It was perfectly manageable - good chili, but not too much. My daughter had 2 x 2 x 2 - and loved it (real maple syrup makes her smile). You need to... More
