Starting with the food - the girl cooking did and awesome job great burgers, dogs, fries, onion rings and cold beer ... then we had to walk off all that ... they had an... More

Wow-it's a crazy sight. A carnival, 50s diner, midway (arcade/carnival games), and collector's/toy shop nestled in a beautiful forest in South Dakota. Quite refreshing as they have plenty of grub and alcoholic and non-alcoholic cold beverages. Really stopped just for the restroom but the classic cars and hard to find collector's items wooed me. I have been to several tourist... More

Stopped in between lunch and dinner on a weekday. There was only one other family there. Wasn't really hungry, but I had fried pickles with ranch dressing for the first time. I really liked them. My husband had a vanilla shake, and he enjoyed his treat too. But I did observe the "freshly cut" french fries - - wow, they... More

We had so much fun reminiscing and just enjoying a walk back in time. There was all kinds on nostalgia for the 50's, of course it makes you want to buy everything (because of the fun memories attached to them), but we were really good and didn't buy.. just poked, it was really neat. We didn't get a chance to... More

I found this place odd in the middle of all the natural beauty. Kinda an eye sore and pricey too. I think this would be better in the city.

Loved the music playing, the ferris wheel going. It was almost evening, and we were driving by and noticed this roadside little community. We stopped and browsed through the stores. They had all kinds of things from the 50's for display, and others to be purchased. We didn't eat, but would have loved a milkshake, or hotdog. It was just... More

My family stopped here on one of our "tourist days." We go to local attractions and enjoy our area. We stopped here for ice cream on the way home, and sat at the counter. It was fun, and the staff was very friendly. The milkshakes were delicious, as was the apple pie! We will definitely return soon to try the... More

When driving from Deadwood down to Rapid City, we came across this place and were pleasantly surprised! The 50s memorabilia store was great, as well as the small car museum!! Very fun! Then we made our way to the restaurant. The menu was cute, many burgers are named after old celebrities, like Elvis, Merylin Munroe, and James Dean. We ordered... More

For a lover of all things vintage, 50s and 60s, this place was like heaven on earth! It was a trip back in time, no matter the fact that I was only born in the 80s. If you're in the Black Hills and love this era of history, you have to make a stop at Boondocks. It's just outside of... More
