Description of Restaurant:

Having arrived late evening in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for an early A.M. TV appearance, I checked in with the locals and found this unexpected treat -- "eclectic" THEO'S -- with a front lounge combo dining room with a blazing fireplace, to large, warm dining areas with a view of the open kitchen.

Our meals would prompt me to pass this gem on to my fans.

The Food


The extraordinary like:

Saganaki @ $7.95

Kassen cheese baked, then flambéd at tableside.

Domathes/Grape Leaves @ $8.95

Ground beef with onions and mint wrapped in tender grape leaves and simmered
in chicken broth served with lemon Hollandaise sauce; and

Escargot, crab cakes, salmon quesadilla, crab dip -- something for everybody's 
taste -- all above the ordinary.

Main Courses:

All main courses are served and priced with choice of soup du jour, house salad or marcigny salad (mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, red onion with homemade marcigny cheese) served with bacon dressing.

Also choice of garlic mashed potatoes or baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms,
provencal tomatoes or fettucine Alfredo.

All these side dishes are very well prepared, not just a plate filler.

Beef -- a few of the many selections:

Meat lovers will relish the Porterhouse Steak @ $27.99.
A great piece of steak grilled and served with sauteed onions, mushrooms
in garlic butter.

Jamaican Top Sirloin @ $16.95
A 10 oz sirloin steak with authentic Jamaican flavor.

Pasta dishes use homemade pasta; and Verblen's meat balls @ $16.95 will have your taste buds titillated. Pork and beef meatballs on a bed of linguine topped with marinara
sauce and fresh mozzarella. OH BOY!!!

Curry Melange @ $18.95
Shrimp, scallops and chicken simmered in curry sauce with apples, red peppers over linguine.

-- and the great pasta combos go on .....

Garlic Hunter Chicken @ $17.95
Bone in chicken breast roasted in garlic beneath the skin and bathed in a light garlic cream sauce.

Pork Chop Cajun style @ $17.95
Pork chop Cajun marinade -- bone in pork chop.

..... And the great menu selections go on and on, including:

Wood Roasted Pizzas! ! !


Yes, Desserts are worth the calories:
Baked Alaska and Banana Foster

Again, this is a great and special dining experience and Sioux Falls is lucky.
