What's the new restaurant coming to Sioux Falls?

Mooo-'ve over burger places, and make room for what Dakota News Now is reporting, will be, the new "Barn to Burger" restaurant that will be grilling up their take on one of American's all-time favorite foods!

Wagoo Burger will be opening in the Fernson Brewery taproom located at 332 South Phillips this Friday, April 1, at 3 PM.

What makes this burger place different from the others?

Freshness. In fact, their motto is "Barn to Burger!" Their cattle -

...are processed by small businesses to ensure that from barn to burger, everything is thoughtfully made with our farmers, our family, and our community in mind.

Another thing that will make Wagoo different is when they say it is "locally sourced" they mean it. Their beef will be coming from a family farm operation in Humboldt.

Is this a franchise being brought to Sioux Falls?

Nope, the same guys who own a little upscale eatery in Downtown Sioux Falls, that you might have heard of - -Crawford's, are opening this burger bungalow. And they're making it "as local as it gets!"

What will they be serving?

There will be a whole lot of burgers on the menu, but that's not all. They'll also be cooking up other South Dakota favorites, like Chislic and Dakota Nachos.

Here are just a couple of items you'll find on their menu:

  • Sonoran Burger - Bacon-crusted smash burger, pepper jack cheese, avocado, pinto beans, pico de gallo, then a little mayonnaise and cilantro
  • Twin Bing Beer Floats - Candy pecan rimmed glass, vanilla ice cream, cherry syrup, and fresh mint, served with Ferson Twin Bing Stout.

I don't know about you but they had me at bacon and Twin Bing Stout!

Here Are The 7 Remaining Drive-In Theaters In South Dakota

If you were born last century...you know, in the nineteen hundreds (ugh)...you may have spent a summer evening in the car watching movies. I don't mean on your phone, I mean at the drive-in movie theater!

If you were in Sioux Falls in the 1970s and '80's you may remember seeing Jaws and Indiana Jones at The East Park or the Starlite Drive-In. Both drive-ins opened just after World War 2. The East Park didn't make it out of the '70s, closing in 1978. The Starlite survived long enough to see the birth of home video, closing in 1985.


Drive-in movies had a bit of a resurgence during the pandemic. They were a way to go out and do something social without getting out of your car.

If you tried one during that time, or you remember the fun of a warm summer evening watching movies on that giant screen there are still places in South Dakota and around Sioux Falls you can do it.
