1) Rosie's Cafe, Sioux Falls: Comfort food to the extreme. That best describes this Sioux Falls mainstay. You'll barely notice it's there if you're driving by, but once you stop in, you'll not notice it again. In fact, you might start making excuses to "be in the neighborhood" so you can quickly stop in for a bite.

Rosie's is best known for its hot beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, and of course, the best meatloaf in all of Sioux Falls.
