You’ll Love The Sandwiches At This Quirky Little South Dakota Shop
South Dakota has plenty of great places to find a delicious sandwich, but we can guarantee that you won’t find one quite as quirky as this. Check out Whiffer’s Sandwiches!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Whiffer's Sandwiches opened in 1978, and it's been a cozy little spot for sandwiches ever since.
When you come in, you'll meet the owner, Cecilia Randal, but you can call her by her nickname, "Whiffer."
Whiffer had quite a life before she opened her sandwich shop. She's a former Mrs. South Dakota, has a Master's degree, and worked for years as a teacher.
The dining room will make you feel right at home — or maybe make you feel like you're at Grandma's house.
It's cozy, with mismatched furniture and tons of photos and memorabilia on the walls. There aren't any vinyl-covered booths or fast food logos here. Just a homey atmosphere and tasty sandwiches.
This place hasn't changed much since it opened.
You won't find a fancy menu board or ordering system. You'll basically give your order to Whiffer, who writes it down on a piece of paper.
The menu is simple, but pretty much has every kind of sandwich you'd ever want.
The sandwiches... are HUGE.
A whole sandwich is as big as the plate it's served on, and all the sandwiches are absolutely stuffed with fillings.
You'll love the prices, too.
A whole sandwich ranges in price from $6.95 to $7.95, and it can easily feed two people. You can order a half sandwich or a mini sandwich for a smaller portion, too.
Here's where the quirkiness comes in: When you walk in, you'll immediately notice the pigs.
Whiffer has a collection of pigs throughout the sandwich shop.
The pig collection was kind of accidental.
Whiffer hasn't purchased a single pig. Someone gave her a pig years ago, and she put it in the shop. Others started bringing her pigs, and now she has quite the collection.
Whiffer's is only open for lunch, and it sometimes closes for holidays or vacation.
You can visit Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Closed Saturday and Sunday. It's located at 1133 North Minnesota Avenue in Sioux Falls.
