Cute Diner

We stopped here for dinner and ordered burgers and and a Chicken tenders kids meal for our daughter. My cheeseburger had a great homemade shape and flavor. The fries were pretty good and my chocolate shake was really good. The atmosphere is nicely done with all the 50s diner type decor. Our server... read more

I really want to like this place, and I hate to leave a bad review for a small business that is working hard to make it. But I must. Cute place, but my food was just not up to par. My elk burger was way overcooked and dry. My fries had three short hairs in them. I asked if the... More

My sister recommended this place and said their family had enjoyed it every time they stopped in, so my kids and I joined her family for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere is that of an old 50s diner and the menu has all the great traditional diner entrees. I debated about the classic burger and fries or BLT... More

Located on the south end of Hill City's Main Street, Hub Cap Diner is a great spot for a burger or good old American diner meals! Menu included BLTs, hot roast beef sandwiches, malts, meatballs and Patty Melts...something you rarely see on a menu any more. The Reuben Sandwiches were prepared as requested (extra sauerkraut, no dressing) and the BLTs... More

If you want burgers, fries, shakes, sundaes, malts, cherry coke.....all of that traditional 50/60s diner food.....this is the place to go. I had the patty melt and loved the sauteed peppers on it. Shakes were good and the price was great for the amount of food.

This diner is located right downtown in Hill City. The service was fast and the staff was very friendly. The prices are reasonable. Loved the atmosphere. Old car pictures, license plates, Elvis Presley pictures, etc. I had the Hot Beef plate, which was just ok, as I do not like instant mashed potatoes. My husband had the Hot Turkey plate... More

Couldn't pass up checking the Hub Cap Diner out. Walked in to neon lights and vintage looking decor. I was greeted with a smile and seated immediately. Service by the staff was friendly and fast. Ordered beef brisket on a hoagie style bun with green peppers, onions, and a delicious bbq sauce. Meal wouldn't have been complete without onion rings... More
