Quick Hits: Best Pie in South Dakota
By Annie Sandmeier

Where can you get the best dessert in South Dakota? Needless to say, if you want a slice of delicious homemade pie, Purple Pie Place is the way to go… but where does one visit for some of the other best desserts in South Dakota? If you scream for ice cream, you can never go wrong with a scoop (or 5) from Stensland Family Farms Ice Cream + Country Store, which serves homemade ice cream made from their very own dairy farm milk. Is homemade fudge and candy more your jam? Then you are going to love Turtle Town and their many types of homemade fudge, turtles, and other chocolates. Gluten free goodies? Bizzy Lizzy Flourless Bakery it is!

What are the best restaurants in South Dakota? Now THIS is a question, as South Dakota is a foodie’s paradise! For a perfectly cooked steak and prime rib, we recommend Grey Goose Store & Social Club, which is actually a gas station with an unbelievable restaurant inside. Do you have a train lover in the family or just want to go to a good place with a unique ambiance? Check out the 50’s Train Diner; an old 1950s Santa Fe Train car that is now parked at 1880 Town and serves a huge selection of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and desserts. Want to go somewhere that is just flat out iconic? Wall Drug it is! (Psst… get the homemade donuts. You will thank me later!)

What is South Dakota’s state food? Since many of our ancestors hail from Germany, we cannot get enough homemade treats like kuchen and kolach, but also love bierocks and chislic. More of our non-German favorites include hot beef sandwiches, Indian tacos, and anything with buffalo.
