  • Wall Drug is a touristy collection of souvenirs, but when passing through Wall, it's well worth a visit. If you're interested in the history of small towns in the American West, you'll enjoy the story...  read more »
  • This was something that my Grandparents always talked about! It was pretty cool to see, however, it's very touristy and a lot of the souvenirs were overpriced. It was very different and there are a lo...  read more »
  • I'm a tourist so I'm glad I visited but didn't find it that exceptional. It is very large and had a lot of Native American style artwork and a big supply of fancy boots as well as candy and magnets et...  read more »
  • We stop every time we go to Alaska, or any place else we go north of San Francisco. Our kids always wanted to stop from age 5 into adulthood. One has to wonder how so many can rate it a 5 and how many can rate it a one and some say some really bad things. My guess is that the 1 ratings come from New Yorkers, or rich people who couldn't appreciate the best "tourist trap" in America, which it just might be. It is like a carnival with a Western flavor and high end items too. I say bah- humbug to the ones who have no taste for a fantastic tourist trap with a great variety of terrific food!
  • It's a tourist trap, don't get me wrong, but the prices are relatively reasonable. Though 12 dollars for a burger and fries sounds a bit unreasonable in retrospect. The food is good, though. I got a couple belts at about $40 each, and they were not the cheapest. They were American made, quite nice, and should last a while compared to some of the cheaper, more costly ones sold these days. There is also a nice fudge store, though the cleanliness might he questionable depending on the employee working. I saw a fly on one flavor of fudge. Though the fudge is good. It's worth the trip.
  • As usual, Wall Drug Cafe delivers a wonderful meal. While their roast beef sandwich is to die for, I got the chicken bacon ranch that I always order when visiting. The foreign employees are wonderful to engage with and learn their stories, and everyone is friendly. If you cross South Dakota on 90 and don't stop at Wall Drug you're making a mistake.
  • There is a lot of variety here. This place is huge. It's always a "must" to stop for me. Great food, ice cream, donuts and fudge. They have a huge art collection, chapel, arcade, gold panning, interactive water fountain, clothing stores, gifts, jewelry, toys, book store, oh.... And a drug store too. :) It has a bunch of fun and kitschy photo opps that always make me grab for my phone or camera.
  • They seem to have everything. Quaint caught there during a storm so we stayed to eat at their "world fsmous" cafe Roof leaked everywhete.... grilled chicken was too expensive and inedible .. glad we stopped to say we saw it but see no reason to go back. Best part of visit was the Badlands H-D Shop next door.
