    Wall Drug, Since 1931

    June 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 73 °F

    Homemade pie for the second time today? Yes please.

    Wall Drug is a weird place. It started out as a pharmacy and general store in the '30s. Since SD is sparsely populated they have to lure in the tourists with all these crazy road signs, like sirens singing to the sailors!

    Once there you are surprised to find out they make their own pie, doughnuts, and ice cream. Plus they have the oldest operating soda fountain in the US. Not that the soda fountain looked old fashioned at all. Soft serve ice cream machines and coke fountain drink machines. Rather disappointing. But the pie was not disappointing.

    To staff their place in the height of tourist season Wall Drug hires international students to come and work for a few weeks. They house them during their employment. We spoke with a girl from Kazakhstan who seemed less than impressed with Wall, SD. Lol.
