From its origin in the mid 1800’s as a trade stop and gateway to the western Plains, to its boom as a meat packing town achieving notoriety during the Prohibition era, Sioux City has always been a bit scrappy, tenacious, and gritty. The city and surrounding area is filled with hard-working Midwestern folks who like what they like, and aren’t afraid to put their money, well, where that supreme beef burrito is about to go.

It’s remarkable to look at all of the amazing local food shops, restaurants, and food brands that have started throughout the years and continue to flourish in a town the size of Sioux City. An entrepreneurial foodie spirit truly does live here, and it’s about dang time that we started showing it off a bit to the outside world.

Our mission with Sioux City Foodie is simply to highlight the time-tested, trusted, and locally-touted food spots that one might not want to miss when visiting. And don’t worry, we won’t leave out all of the innovators who are currently working hard to widen the culinary options available to us in Siouxland – they will definitely get some love too. So send us your foodie recommendations at – and feel free to tag @SiouxCityFoodie ’til your hungry little heart’s content on Instagram, Facebook, snail-mail, and Twitter. Kidding, no tags on snail-mail. — Sioux City Foodie
