We spent the day riding the Harley through the Black Hills in South Dakota. We stopped for lunch at the Hill City Café. It is pretty much a ma and pop place but don't let that fool you. We received great service and our party of eight were all smiling. I had the country fried steak which turned out to... More

Hill City Cafe is like every small town's diner favored by the locals. It was later in the evening, we were hungry, and the options were limited, so we ate here. Comfort food -- chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad. It was hot and tasted good.

Ate there for the Steak and Shrimp dinner. Just plain good cooki'n-- Small hometown kind of restaurant but great salad bar, and prices you just won't believe. Dinner for two for less than $25 and really well prepared steak, shrimp, and veggies.

Only one waitress on a Saturday night, poor soul. We made allowances for the crowd, but sadly the kitchen got all three orders wrong and even the soup was room temperature. Bath room was filthy and there was no toilet paper. We ate parts of the meals and left hungry.

We had dinner here one night and everything was so good. Good value, good service. Homemade desserts and they always have a special. I tried the Bull Fries and wow, my first time to eat these and they were great. Next morning we has time to kill so stopped in for coffee and had to try the homemade cinnamon rolls.... More

The service was fast and the waitress very nice. I ate a Sirloin with fries that was delicious and my husband asked for a fried chicken with fries that was very good too. Very interesting pictures at the wall showing the history.

We stopped in the Hill City Cafe for a mid day club sandwich which we enjoyed very much. Then we returned later for a cup of coffee after a train ride on the 1880 train. Our server was very helpful and friendly. Nice place, cool pictures on the walls.

I like diner food, so I thought I would give this a shot. First of all, the food is decent. Didn't change my world. The service, however, was beyond bad. A soda refill took 10 minutes and it took FIFTEEN minutes for them to take my payment and bring back the credit card slip to sign. Avoid this place unless... More

We went most mornings and the food is great. The staff made us feel like we were home. The cafe is a wonderful example of Dakota friendship! Laughter and teasing are priceless.
