While on the backleg of our two week vacation we were craving salads and broiled fish.... We were also out in the middle of South Dakota so I thought I would have to wait to calm my cravings. We saw a billboard for Al's Oasis and figured we would give it a try. We were hauling a travel trailer so... More

I cannot say it is an Epicurean Event, but we hit breakfast one way and lunch the other. Food was good, right price, shopping fun...basically 'hit the spot'.

This was a nice enough place but a cup of tea, a slice of pie with ice cream atop was rather expensive

Husband and I shared a deluxe buffalo burger that came with fries. It was fine--not dry at all. He had coconut meringue pie and I had strawberry pie. Both were great--even the crust was very good which is hard to find. I suspect you should not expect gourmet food here :) Stop, walk around, enjoy some pie and coffee. There... More

We ate at Al's for supper and breakfast. Both times the service was fast and the staff was friendly. The food was very good. The décor is rustic. This restaurant is in a small mall that also has a gift shop, grocery store and bakery.

We each had the buffalo burger deluxe and it was OK but kind of dry. They did have 24 oz Shinerboch for $4, so that was a deal. Service was friendly, we ate there because we were staying at the associated hotel, but this seemed like a place set up for bus tours, just OK food.

Thank you for taking the time to review Al's Oasis on Tripadvisor! I'm sorry you felt the Buffalo Burger was dry, it is a much leaner meat than regular beef. I do apologize it did not meet your expectation. Once again thank you for reviewing our property! More

For those who have driven Interstate 90 know, South Dakota is a VERY long state with vast stretches of nothing between towns. We stopped at Al's Oasis on our way home from Sturgis for a quick bite before getting back on the road. Atmosphere is rustic and charming, the service is good and the food decent. Nothing to write home... More

We ate in the bar because the main dining room was too empty and depressing. I ordered a burger, I think, and the salad bar. I think it came with my meal, but my husband ordered it separately for a charge of $7! The salad bar was awful - no tomatoes, cucumber, or celery, and lots of icky (to me)... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review on Tripadviser for Al's Oasis! Your feedback is appreciated. I am sorry we did not live up to your expectations. We do rotate ingredients on our salad bar consistently, and I agree sometimes too many creamy salads can make it onto the salad bar at one time. Once again I do... More

We are not frequent road-trippers but when we head out to Rapid City, Al's is the place we have to plan to stop to eat a buffalo burger! The place definitely has character and the wait staff are very friendly. The menu has a good selection, but we always go for the buffalo burger as it is less greasy and... More

I just finished having my meal here this afternoon for dinner. It's a nice place to get a bite to eat. The service is good, as well as the atmosphere and most impotently the food was good. Would come back a 2nd time, but I wouldn't come out of my way to come back.
