Grille 26 | History

The Story

Many years ago, 26th Street and Western was on the edge of rolling farmland that stretched west practically forever. There was no Empire Mall. Louise Avenue didn't exist. Sioux Falls stopped just about…here. And here was good.

This was the site of the Piggly Wiggly grocery store and the Park Ridge Galleria, now a historical landmark and upscale mall. It was also the site of many restaurants, including Minervas 26th Street Market. During this time, the folks at Minervas took a real shine to the neighborhood.

When we decided to open Grille 26, we knew just where we wanted to put it. Right here in our old neighborhood at 26th Street and Western. It feels just like home. We love the people, the area and the friendly, neighborhood vibe.
