Iconic Sioux Falls: The Crack'd Pot

I'm old school when it comes to restaurant food. I worked at a small town cafe in high school and that is the type of restaurant food I still love today.

You don't need to feature mushroom risotto and kale salad on your menu to make people happy. I'm personally not a fan of pretentious food. My mashed potatoes don't need to be garlic, red-skinned smashed. I like french fries smothered in gravy and a bowl of chili.

Restaurants come and go in Sioux Falls. In order to survive in a city with over 700 restaurants, you need to have good food, decent portions, affordable prices, and good service. Without those four key elements, you might not last long.


The Best Truck Stop Food in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota

One of the best parts of any road trip is a stop at a truck stop. Whether you call them, travel centers, convenience stores, or just a gas stations; these oases are so interesting and fun.

In the middle of nowhere, you find the island of pavement, pumps, and people; getting gas, some rest, and fuel for themselves, AKA some classic truck stop food.

I'm partial to a Love's Truck Stop. They are usually big and well-managed. And as a connoisseur of gas-station coffee, Love's is one of the best. Plus, they have some delicious hot dogs.

I'm not the only one that enjoys a stop at a truck stop for good eats. The food blog LoveFood.com dug through user reviews to find the best truck stop food in each state.
