Eating on the road can be nutritionally and calorically challenging - add a team dynamic and these challenges can become overwhelming. Well, if in Sioux Falls, I recommend the dinner. I had the spinach salad (OMG good) but I could have easily went for the chicken & waffles, a burger... You could take a wide variety of appetites to this... More

Try the Sticky Noodle Salad! It's great! We were on a road trip and found this just before it closed. We were very pleasantly surprised that this little diner had such good food.

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.
