Best frybread in the world, from my experience, and from recommendations given to me by Lakota tribal members. It's the frybread that makes their Indian tacos great, and even their strawberry sundaes. Rustic wood-paneled dining and friendly staff. We always look forward to it.

We stopped here after visiting Deadwood and prior to beginning our drive on the Spearfish Canyon Byway. Two so us had the Indian tacos. We also tried the carrot cake. The carrot cake is outstanding. The staff is proud of their Indian tacos. In fact, they were featured in magazines. The tacos have a tasty sauce. You may want to... More

We read many reviews and were excited about eating here. The service was very good but our food arrived cold not even Luke warm and the biscuits and gravy that were so highly recommended well they were far from excellent. I've never had a sausage gravy with sage and sugar in it and never shall again. The taste was so... More

This dining experience was a 'blind luck' event. We were driving to Lead, SD, to find a place to eat when we spotted this location out in the middle of nowhere. Since we were both hungry and needed a restroom stop, we pulled in. After taking advantage of their rest facilities we checked out the menu. We elected to give... More

our tour guide recommended Cheyenne Crossing for lunch. It was quaint and charming. The food was good and the staff was very friendly. We would eat here all the time if we could. Love it!

My husband and I arrived here for a late lunch while touring in the area, and the place was packed. As we walked in the door, we saw the host walk off to seat a large party. He seemed to take forever to get back to the front counter. When he finally reappeared, he sat us at a small table... More

A local recommended this place. This was my first trying an Indian taco. I ordered the dinner size, it was huge. Didn't think I was going to finish it, but I did. The actual base of it, is pretty hollow. No waiting time for us to be seated, our food was out at a decent time. The waitress was ver... More

Without going into Lead or Deadwood, anyone staying at the south end of Spearfish Canyon has one dining choice, and this is it. The place is tired and in need of cleaning and updating. Service is very slow and a little too folksy. The food was okay, but not anything we would come back for. The "Famous" Indian Taco is... More

We visit Deadwood several times a year but Cheyenne Crossing is usually closed. We finally got to eat there twice. Once for breakfast and once for lunch. Everything is delicious and they have the friendliest servers we have ever met. Their breakfast is served until 3:00 p.m. They make one of the biggest hamburgers my husband said he's ever eaten....
