How To De-Clutter Your Child's Room

When my friend told me about Nikki's 4 years ago, I was hesitant as I came from CA and know real Mexican food and haven't found many good places in SD but wow, was I wrong! Love Nikki's Carne Asada burritos, but if you want a real treat, you have to try the Carne Asada dinner. FANTASTIC! We go a few times a month and are never disappointed.

Since moving to South Dakota 8 years ago, we've used Tires Plus for everything from tire purchases to oil changes to maintenance and repairs. They are always very courteous and take the time to explain exactly what is going on. They call us if things are going to take a little longer than expected and explain why, they call us to let us know if they've found something else wrong while fixing another problem -- complete with price quote and time factors -- so we can make informed decisions, and they have no problem showing us the repairs that were done or the bad parts that were pulled. Sometimes I think their quotes are a little high, but their work is reliable and staff courteous and respectful... makes going back nice!

We went here a few years ago to fix a muffler issue on my husband's car. They were very good and reasonably priced. We stopped by over the week-end to ask a question about a weird sound coming from our daughter's car but weren't ready to have it worked on yet, they actually took our car in the shop and lifted it to view the problem, then showed us that the muffler was broke in half. We took it back on Monday and they took it right in. We had a couple of other questions and they listened intently and offered answers in laymen's terms without making my daughter or I feel stupid. Price was very comparable to other shops in town, too.
