They have some very good diner food, like meat loaf, chili, french dip sandwich and so on. But their shakes are the best! They are very good, very big and very filling.

I went here for lunch on a Saturday. The area around the place is nice and there is easy parking. The server was beyond nice. I had the turkey sandwich which was great. My daughter had breakfast food which she also really enjoyed. It’s a...cool looking place inside. Really nice.More

Classic Diner Recipes with medium size portions . Order courses and sides if hungry. Did not get to try the famous shakes as the freezer was broken

I researched restaurants before our trip and this diner had great reviews. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations. I ordered a turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes but the turkey was chopped up. I expected turkey slices. The plate was very plain and unappealing. To...top it off the restroom was disgusting.More

Our four top was seated after a minor wait during the lunch rush. The booth was cramped but once seated it was comfortable. We had two breakfast meals, a cheeseburger and a cripy chicken salad. Coffee was good and service was on time even though...they were packed. The eggs were cooked exactly as ordered and the pork link sausage was excellent. The salad was typical and the cheeseburger was over cooked and not very good.More

Surprise! This isn’t usual diner food. We had chicken and waffles, chicken fried steak and milkshakes….sounds like a diner but doesn’t taste like one. Pecan butter, sausage gravy to die for…we put it on everything….enjoy!

We ate here at the recommendation of a friend who previously lived in Sioux Falls and it was a GREAT choice for breakfast. Many options, fair prices, and super friendly, fast, attentive service. My husband had the corned beef hash, I had the 2+2+2 and...neither of us left hungry. If you're looking for a fun, family friendly breakfast place in Sioux Falls, check out Phillips Ave Diner!More

We’ve been twice since our babies have been in the NICU in town. Both times were excellent. Service was great. Food was fantastic. We’ve now tried the French toast, chicken and waffles, poutine, two different sandwiches, and shakes. So yummy. We will be back very...soon. Can’t wait to come in the morning for the full breakfast menu.More

Stopped here for lunch when passing through the area. A really friendly place with excellent food. Busy, but still great service. I had the jambalaya...terrific flavour. My wife had the reuben sandwich & loved it as well. A must visit.

Thank you for the wonderful JAMBALAYA! I loved the downtown the amazing taste of the JAMBALAYA. I love the yummy feel of the South Dakota Dinner that I eat for Lunch. I loved the Scenery in the neighborhood and I enjoyed the sculptor walk. I...also really enjoyed the hospitality in this region. I really enjoyed the bed and breakfasts. I would recommend shopping online first and especially on the new modern day invention of an App. Apps can be found on cell phones, computers, watches, and tablets. I really enjoyed how this restaurant is so near by to some of the Big Four Banks. There is a lot of great food on the menu I enjoy coming here a lot I would love to come here and eat a lot of meals. I really enjoy the time I spent in this Neighborhood and this meal is superb. Coming from a lot of education and work with a lot of different companies I would say that this era of the world works really hard and is always clean. I enjoy seeing a lot of the great locations here. Wages are very splendid here also. I am recruited by a lot of job recruiter in this area of the world often. South Dakota is a very lovely place. Covid 19 is quite low in this area of the world and people are able to live a very safe life. The Food quality at this restaurant is wonderful and I do not think the risk of catching covid is around here. I mostly run into the same people here also. I have not seen a lot of crime. The police station is very close by and the city is very safe. I have seen here two really big hospitals that keep the elderly and disabled happy. Sioux Falls is a great place to live and Phillips Avenue Diner is a great tourist destination that I would Definitely check out while you are in this city.More
