Mama's Ladas makes a huge claim right from the get-go: Nothing tastes better than Mama’s enchiladas. Well, plenty of regulars would agree with that sentiment. The menu is small, but select, with enchiladas being the star of the show. Beef, chicken, even broccoli and cheese all come in either full or half orders, making it even more affordable- and the menu is already very well priced. For something extra special, visit at the weekend and ask for the shrimp and spinach.

Great value is as much about what diners get for their money, as well as how much they shelled out in the first place. With that in mind, Morrie’s gives very good value indeed. Absolutely enormous steaks arrive cooked to perfection, with lavish side dishes and trimmings, giving a true fine dining experience. Pair every meal with a superb wine or artistic cocktail creation. Visit the lounge for some cut-price delicacies like the honey smoked salmon nachos- a clever twist on a local favorite.

Ethiopian cuisine is a relative newcomer to the Sioux Falls dining scene. Lalibela, named for the famous town in Ethiopia, encourages the ideals of community and family, tradition, identity, and culture. With that in mind, they create all meals with authentic ingredients, following traditional recipes handed down for generations. The good news is that Lalibela is very reasonably priced too. Try lentils cooked in the classic berbere spice, warm and fragrant. Or how about Goden Tbs, Lalibela’s short ribs cooked in a unique seasoning. A great value way to try something new.
