The Brakeman American Grill is Victor's family friendly spot for the BEST Burgers, Sandwiches and delicious Salads. It's all about FRESH at The Brakeman. We grind our beef daily right on site and add our own special seasonings, fresh vegetables and a delicious sourdough bun to create the BEST Burger. Our fresh cut Idaho Fries are a terrific treat and accompany all Burgers and Sandwiches. The Brakeman serves freshly brewed Sun Tea, Fair Trade Organic coffee,sodas and a variety of local and regional beers and wines. The Brakeman is open for lunch and dinner.

When I asked her to correct it she said she didn't know how so it just had... read more

I was so looking forward to a burger at the Brakeman. The website claims they are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. We went one Monday evening recently and, much to our surprise and deep disappointment, they were closed! Fortunately we had another opportunity to try - that Wednesday for lunch - and they were open.

Excellent food, but bring an appetite or share the plate; a lot of food, and way more fries that one person should eat.

The burgers were the best that my husband and I have ever had and the service was excellent. Nice family business and the meat is ground fresh daily. We would go back again to this cafe any time, any day!

Alright, my wife and I just had the "honor" of eating at both the Brakeman and TripAdvisors #1 burger place, Burger and Bun in Custer, SD over the past 5 days; the winner is: The Brakeman! I had the standard Brakeman and added bacon. Piping hot, great seasoned meat, perfect bun and great fries. I was immediately satisfied after the... More
