Edgar's

Business Route 29 (at Pioneer Drug), Elk Point, SD - (605) 356-3336
Soda jerking is a fine art at Edgar’s. It is no haphazard process. First, syrup and a little ice cream are smooshed together at the bottom of the deep vase-shaped glass to form a kind of sweet-shop roux; next, soda is squirted in and mixed vigorously; penultimately, a globe of ice cream is gingerly floated on top; finally, a crown of whipped cream is applied and, to that, a single cherry.

Edgar's unusual vertical banana split is a thing of beauty and extends almost six inches above the top rim of the glass.

The large scoop of ice cream precariously balanced atop this to-the-brim chocolate soda makes it impossible to eat without significant drippage.

When you order a hot fudge sundae you are asked if you want one scoop of ice cream or two. If you choose two, you also get a double layer of hot fudge.

Edgar's is an inviting place to stop for a sundae or soda while traveling the North-South interstate south of Sioux Falls.

The boy in this photo had to be lifted onto the stool at the counter; once there, he consumed a very large banana split.
