SS - Mack's Cafe, Murdo, South Dakota

I love the name and clean no nonsense look of Mack's Cafe. It looks like the quinessential midwestern storefront/cafe.

Murdo doesn't seem like the type of place that would have both an uptown and downtown. It is located in the middle of South Dakota, at the crossroads of Interstate 90 and Highway 83. Murdo is the county seat of Jones County, which had a population of 1,193 in 2000.

Murdo's website currently lists four places to eat: Buffalo Bar & Restaurant, GTO Café, Murdo Drive In (open seasonally from May-September), and the Senior Citizens Center (weekday noon lunches for Senior Citizens). There is no mention of Mack's Cafe.

  1. Probably no mention of Cafe 16 either. Mack's is a lot nicer looking than Cafe 16 though, which I posted back in November.

  2. My grandpa used to run Mack's in Murdo. It closed up around 1974. My family who still lives in Murdo collect postcards and matchbooks that show Mack's. Good to see it online.
