What To Eat in South Dakota

Good steaks are an expected pleasure in a land where cattle and buffalo roam. We also are especially fond of South Dakota’s ways to please a sweet tooth, from atomic sundaes in vintage soda fountains to bakeries that are devoted exclusively to cookies.

  • All sorts of berries are available for picking when summer comes to South Dakota, and bakers make the most of them in pies. The one known as bumbleberry is especially popular in local cafes. It is a mix of whatever's ripe, usually including blueberries, rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries, and, when available, huckleberries.

  • Bison meat makes good sausages and steaks as well as powerhouse burgers. Its sweeter flavor and more rugged texture, well-abetted by a kaleidoscope of spice, yields an only-in-the-West eating experience.

  • A dish unique to South Dakota, chislic is beef (sometimes bison) that is well-marinated, then deep-fried to crusty-edged succulence. Its origins are Russian, where pork was the favored meat. In fact, it has become a favorite way to prepare just about any wild game in the Mount Rushmore State.
