• Mama’s Ladas is a small restaurant with a short menu that delivers big flavor with homemade enchiladas, guacamole, salsa and sangria. A small sangria and a small enchilada will set you back $7. The location is prime, across the street from Washington Pavilion.
• The 1950s is a decade well preserved at the Phillips Avenue Diner. Bone up on your diner lingo and order your chicken and waffles or fried pickles with an Altanta Ale ( aka Coca-Cola) .
• Housed in Sioux Falls’ first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified building, Wild Sage Grille also keeps the environment in mind with meals fashioned from local fruits, vegetables, meats and other products. See the Big Sioux River from a patio and the dining room.
• Minerva’s began in Sioux Falls in 1977; the popular restaurant now has other nine other locations in South Dakota, Iowa and Michigan. On Phillips Street, Minerva’s is known for in-house aged steaks, seafood and pastas.
