South Dakota’s Best Sandwich is Hidden Inside a Hardware Store
Sometimes the best things in life are found in the most unlikely of places. That's certainly the case when it comes to where you can find the best sandwich in the Mount Rushmore State.
It's not in Sioux Falls, in fact, it's over an hour's drive away. The best sandwich in the state lies in the far southeast corner of South Dakota.
Located in Vermillion, South Dakota Mister Smith's is a hometown favorite and has been for many years. You can find it hidden inside the local Ace Hardware Store.
This is kind of fitting because locals would prefer this place to stay a secret from outsiders.
So, what makes it South Dakota's best sandwich?
It's so delicious that even Oprah Winfrey's website gave it widespread acclaim back in 2014:
The best bread in the world is not in Paris. It' not in San Francisco, and it's not being made in some chic little bakery–art gallery in SoHo, either. The best bread in the world is waiting for you right at 812 Cottage Avenue, in downtown Vermillion, South Dakota.
Mister Smith's has a unique and straightforward way to order your sandwich, with a multitude of options for meats and bread. My personal favorite? The 3D Melt on a fatty baguette.
