We’re not saying you need to dine on a roast rattlesnake to know western South Dakota, but ready your tastebuds for some new experiences. First of all, if you like beef you’ll be in cuisine heaven because area ranchers grow the world’s best, and local chefs know how to serve it. Bison meat is also a popular menu item. Numerous Black Hills restaurants now feature wild game. In Rapid City, a new catering company called Etiquette has Native American foods and offers special “picnic lunch” packages for families or small groups. If you plan some campfire cooking, shop for fresh local meats, vegetables and sweets at farmers markets. No one ever gains weight while on vacation, right?
