Let me say that you should not go to Hill City and not go to the Hill City Café because this is the must place to eat lunch or even dinner, the food is wonderful and the Burger is the worlds best, never had such a delicious burger! And the waitress FLO makes the visit worthwhile, she is a Hoot... More

We ate breakfast here and this place has some real good stick to your ribs food. We saw that the locals eat here so you know it must be good.

Good lunch place right downtown. Nothing fancy but really good burgers and fries and a beer to go with it. Reasonably priced. 4 stars for what it is; a causal, family friendly lunch spot.

The wait staff was helpful and friendly! We ate here twice during our visit. The first time was late in the evening so it was one of only 3 restaurants open on main street. The roast beef was very good. The second time we got hambugers to go, they were also good. Tha amount of food was a great value.

The hamburgers were great. Also tried chicken fried steak which was good and the buffalo steak which wasn't the least bit dry. Portions were very generous. DO NOT order the double burger unless you have a HUGE appetite.

My wife and I where staying in Hill City over the Labor Day Weekend. Breakfast is one meal we prefer to eat out. It seems everyone we asked for suggestions pointed us this way. One visit was enough. The food was ok, it lacked that home cooked taste. Very bland. Sorry we weren't impressed.

There is nothing special about this place, but they did serve a decent breakfast. Kind of cramped quarters and many locals seem to frequent. They offer a buffet breakfast/brunch all you can eat on the Sunday that we were there, but we didn't try it. Seemed popular, but you'd have to want to eat a lot. Standard bacon & eggs... More
