The Ultimate Guide To The Best Restaurants In South Dakota — Pizzas, Tacos, Ice Cream, And More!

South Dakota is known for being a sprawling, expansive midwestern state with vast rolling hills and flourishing prairies. But what many visitors to South Dakota don’t know is that the Mount Rushmore State is also a gem when it comes to hole-in-the-wall restaurants and uniquely surprising eats. The culinary scene in South Dakota of course holds U.S. staples like pizza, donuts, and ice cream, but it’s really the state-specific cuisine that is most memorable. When classic steakhouses have menu items that include bison or when a remote winery in Hill City offers award-winning wine tastings, you’ll know you’re in South Dakota.
