It’s easy to go to the same few restaurants over and over again when you know they have food you like, but why not change things up once and a while and get a new, unique experience at a restaurant while also being able to enjoy all the comfort foods you love? The Phillips Avenue Diner in downtown Sioux Falls is the perfect place for exactly this, and you’ll see why:
Phillips Avenue Diner isn't just your average diner.
The retro vibe in this place is at full force and they love to embrace it. The old dining car that makes up part of the restaurant adds a uniqueness to the building itself. Take a seat outside on the patio during a lovely night out and enjoy the sights of downtown Sioux Falls along with the fun vintage feel of the place.
Interesting characters are outside to greet you.
The diner is right on the fascinating sculpture walk through the downtown area of the city.
The food is really where it's at, because it is out-of-this-world good.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served here - with breakfast extending through all day, too - and every single meal is absolutely delicious. Their home cooked meals will take you back to old school diners or even back to memories of your mother's own kitchen and the great food that was made there. The options are nearly endless. Burgers, pancakes, omelets, salads, sandwiches, and not to mention...
They serve some of the best poutine you'll find south of the Canadian border.
Yes, they serve poutine and yes, it is AMAZING.
Their chocolate shakes are absolutely delicious, too.
The thick, creamy chocolate shakes here are tough to beat. They are served old school style, of course, in a tall glass with whipped cream on top. Yum!
Whether you go for your favorite comfort foods...
...Or try some of their fancier dishes, you'll love everything they serve.
The food is just too good here to pass up. The location is perfect, the atmosphere will make your meal a memorable one, and the food will bring you back again and again.
The next time you are in downtown Sioux Falls, make a point to eat here.
You really won't regret it! It didn't make it to the Top 5 of all Sioux Falls restaurants for no reason; this place is awesome.
