We've only eaten breakfast at the Big Sioux Cafe, but it has been very good each time and is worth returning for, the food is well portioned and even though they seem busy especially on the weekends they offer good quick service.

The place is usually pretty busy for lunch. The food is pretty good and the price is right. Lot of locals eat here. They have about everything you would want. If your out late and want some good diner food this is also a go to place.

Stopped to gas up & decided to try the cafe instead of eating on the run. Good breakfast choices & good for a gas station cafe. April was our server & she was excellent. Really knew her job & was extremely nice. Clean too.

Always have time to stop in and get a breakfast platter whenever or a big burger too. Best burgers in town in my opinion for the $$. Never had a bad experience, gets busy on sunday morning so be ready. Never tried a cinnamon roll but they are the size of my head, so that's pretty awesome.

About a year ago, Faithful Traveling Companion (FTC) and I were looking for a good breakfast that wasn't a chain such as IHOP or Perkins. An attendant at a gas station in Grand Forks recommended the Big Sioux Cafe and said she and her friends go there a lot. Now I have eaten at truck stops before and came away... More

Take advantage of their daily specials! I had a very tasty, well seasoned turkey burger with all the trimmings, a bowl of turkey wild rice soup, and my favorite soda pop for a grand total of $7.50! Can't be beat....great food and great service.

We stop here for breakfast every time we travel through Grand Forks. Service for a large restaurant is unbelievable. Your food is great and delivered to you in lighting speed all for a very valued price. Everything here has a homemade taste. Great choice for a quick bite and fuel up on your net road trip.
