Pure 100% American tourism in effect here and I loved every single minute. The entire morning was spent poking around the store and the facilities. Whoever dreamed this up wanted to keep people hanging around and they've accomplished just that. We had a bite to eat, an ice cream and bought some really cool souvenirs that we haven't seen anywhere... More

Though the menu is simple, the food is quite good. Notice the selections of buffalo, such as the burger and hot dog. Though the food is a bit pricey, the portions are quite large. So there is plenty of value, but it is more than I can eat in one sitting. THINK about sharing the fries or rings.

Have a rest, a cup of iced water. Coffee, Buffalo Burgers and a plate of Danish before getting back on the road. Great staff, and a great place to stop.

I am from WI and I know a bit about what real ice cream should taste like. I hate getting ice cream anywhere too far from home, but I recommend there homemade icecream! If you have never had a chocolate soda, I advise you try one! My parents were a biproduct of the soda shop era. So most places today... More

The donuts here are advertised far and wide and they really are good. We liked the slight crunch on the outside of them. The bacon cheeseburgers were delicious too. Lots of crispy bacon. My husband appreciated the five cent coffee and of course they advertised everywhere that they give free ice water. They do! You eat surrounded by all sorts... More

A must stop while visiting the Wall, SD and Badlands area. Plenty of souvenirs for anyone's taste. The Cafe offered a nice variety of different sandwiches and specials. Go for the hot roast beef with gravy and mashed potatoes.

We skipped the small Super 8 breakfast and had some of Wall Drug's famous donuts and 5 cent coffee. We returned for lunch after touring Badlands National Park and had their superb hot roast beef special. The apple pie for dessert just topped it off!

Surprisingly, for being the biggest draw in the town of Wall, SD, Wall Drug's Cafe doesn't take advanatage of that distinction. The five cent coffee is actually very good, probably because it is constantly being made fresh, and the throngs of tourists, even at their thickest rarely create a long line. The exception to the rule is the summer, then... More

Make sure to see the T Rex roar! Kids were terrified. But in a good way. Stuff is not too overpriced compared to most tourist traps in the Black Hills.💰🍕🍔🍧🌝🌺

I went on a bus tour and we stopped there not once but twice,going and coming back from some of the other places we had been. The store is definitely unique. They will give military people a free doughnut. Even thought I am not military I still had to have one and it was delicious.They have lots of souvenirs for... More
