Cactus Cafe & Lounge: Salad Bar
It was nice to find a salad bar; there was a nice selection of fresh veggies and prepared salads. The lunch buffet was $8.99 and we were one of the few weighing under 300 lbs. The regular, pepperoni, mushroom & also sausage pizza was a nice change but not inspiring. There was boasted chicken, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes and other things at the lunch buffet was well.
Favorite Dish: The New England Clam Chowder was wonderful, it contained smoked bacon.

Wall Drug Cafeteria: Tourist trap nibbles
After an hour of pawing through souvenirs and other tourist-oriented junk at Wall Drug, the Cafeteria is a nice place to unwind. The dining rooms are quite attractive with real leather in the booths, aged knotty-pine paneling, and local ranchers' cattle brands burnt into the skirting boards. Table-tops are grey marble, which is a relief from the usual formica.
Favorite Dish: The so-called "French Dip" sandwiches --roast beef in a hoagy bun which you dip in broth -- are quite good, as are the Buffalo Burgers (real bison meat here!). Beware of the blueberry pie, though. The last time I had it, the filling was almost glutinous, their having used far too much cornstarch in the thickening.
Dairy Queen: Dairy Queen
Those who read many of my travelogues will know that I love to sit in a Dairy Queen eating a Blizzard and writing in my travel journal at the end of a long day. In the fall when the place isn't too crowded, the Wall Dairy Queen is a pretty nice place to sit and write.
