When I think of the Crack'd Pot, I think of 2 things - pie and soup. Specifically Sour Cream Raisin Pie and potato soup! Ask other people what they love at this iconic Sioux Falls eatery and you'll get a long list.

Recently Pigeon 605 took a closer look at this delightful restaurant and found out that serving great food at a reasonable price is their goal and they've been striving toward that goal for close to 50 years.

Of course, they sell a lot of pies which are all homemade by Carol Andersen. Her initial is one of two that you will still see on the sign outside the store. The other initial is K for her late husband Kurt. 

The Andersen's son Mike is the current owner, but it is his son Alex, the general manager, who is the engine behind the restaurant's current success.

According to Pigeon 605, Alex started washing dishes when he was 10 and never really saw his future at the restaurant but now is totally dedicated to it.

Only a few other restaurants in South Dakota have been around longer than Crack'd Pot and 50 years is an amazing anniversary. 

So the next time you're craving a bowl of hot, delicious, homemade chili or ham and bean soup and maybe some Dutch apple or strawberry-rhubarb pie, make a stop at the Crack'd Pot on North Minnesota Avenue.
