Murdo Drive-In

Chicken Dinner | Drive-In | Hamburgers
One of the best

Just a hop off Interstate 90 in the relatively food-barren middle of South Dakota, Murdo Drive-In serves burgers, broasted chicken, and turtle ice cream that are worth a stop.

The menu is emblazoned with these watchwords “We are not fast! We are good. We are cheerful. We are courteous. But we are not fast. For fast, go to Chicago. Here we are north of the ‘tension line.’ So relax.”

If you order broasted chicken, you will have a good 20 minutes to relax, because it is cooked to order and arrives at your place sizzling hot. Likewise, burgers, made of grass-fed beef, are not from pre-pressed patties; and the dessert / drink cyclones, which are something like milk shakes, are actually made with real fruit when available. Correspondent Hans Bauman noted that his rhubarb cyclone was “delicious, from its creamy substrate to the tangy threads of freshly harvested rhubarb.” Less crop-dependent cyclone flavors include banana split, banana pudding, Oreo, chocolate-covered cherry, and peanut butter crunch.
