Now That The Keg is Coming Back to Sioux Falls, There’s a Whole List of Restaurants Listeners Want to Return
On Saturday, we got word the The Keg is coming back to Sioux Falls after closing their doors back in 2012. The news got people VERY excited for their broasted chicken and gizzards. It also got people talking about what restaurants that used to have stores here in Sioux Falls that they’d like to see come back.
It looks like we really miss a few chain restaurants like: TGIFridays, Schlotzky’s, Chi Chi’s and Hooters. There were also a lot of people remembering Happy Joe’s Pizza, and of course, Gigglebees.
People also used the opportunity to start a ‘wish list’ of restaurants led by Golden Corral, Popeye’s and Red Robin.
Here’s what people had to say on Facebook. How about you? What restaurants would you like to see come back to Sioux Falls or open here for the first time?
Sioux Falls wants the following restaurants brought back:
