Thanks to the restaurant’s popularity, it just celebrated its golden anniversary, marking 50 years of delicious cones and burgers:
Located in Aberdeen, the Twist Cone has been South Dakota's go-to for old-fashioned drive-in meals and treats, and welcomes thousands of hungry visitors each summer!
Open mid-March through late-October, the Twist Cone was founded in 1970 and - though being operated by 3 different families during its time - still boasts the same mouthwatering and nostalgic menu since day one.
In addition to the same food, you will be treated to the same recognizable exterior, neon lights, and super-friendly service that has been around since the drive-in's inception.
Now for the important part: the food! Like all of the great classic drive-in restaurants, the Twist Cone serves burgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.
In terms of dessert, the Twist Cone is famous for its namesake cones, which consist of chocolate, vanilla, twist, and flavor of the week yogurts.
