It is nice to get a pot of coffee at your table and to have it refilled. Breakfast is good and lots of it for a decent price. Only issue was you can't substitute anything on your meal.

Lots of food - Price is the same as going anywhere else. If you want a lot of food and not so much about the taste- this is the place. The staff works so hard... TIP WELL

Found this on Trip advisor when I was approaching Sioux Falls. Called the restaurant to see if they had RV parking (they did not, but parking on the street or at several businesses near by worked for me with a 56' RV and tow car.

One of the few places open 24/7 in Sioux Falls we wanted something other than Perkins (since we have that at home all the time) we had the waffle and a FrynPan platter. Food was good but not WOW.

This place has some good home cooking. We are always looking for something other than fast food when we travel and this hit the spot.

Steak tips are hard to beat. Good quality steak, cooked to order, with tater, soup and salad bar optional. And my personal favorite, all you can eat on Thursday night. A sign about an adult needing to help children at the salad bar would be nice, but more a parenting problem in general than anything wrong with the FrynPan.

We stopped after driving all day. Once we finally got seated, Excellent salad bar, great selection on the menu. Food was brought hot without too much of a wait. Good waitress. The hostess/cashier has no sense of urgency. We waited upon entrance for her to count her drawer. And again when we tried to pay the bill, a wait, while... More

Great staff! This is a typical family-style restaurant. It isn't fancy, but it does have a great and varied menu and reasonable (very), prices. Open late too, which is what we needed.
