Out of season, so some items weren't available, which is understandable. But otherwise, just not that great overall. Buffalo burger was a bit tasteless. Chicken tenders were actually pretty good. Service was fine, quiet and lowkey as the restaurant.

Tamales with green chile sauce. Beans and rice. Server was very friendly. Restaurant was clean and tables were cleaned immediately when someone left.

This is a Mom/Pop in Wall South Dakota near the famous Wall Drug Store We stopped here for lunch (table service) rather than the cafeteria style at Wall Drug. The food was reasonably good and my wife had the lunch special (roasted chicken); I had the Philly Cheese-steak. Both were good and the service was prompt and friendly. We would... More

My husband and the 1 lb bison burger and I had a chicken ranch wrap. They were good, but the booths moved every which way, the atmosphere was kind of dingy, and not really impressed by staff. It filled the hunger need, so I can't complain too much.

Buy a ice cream, chips, hot dog - whatever, please don't eat here! We waited to long time to get our drinks and food. The service was terrible. They didn't have any salad, pasta, ribs, nachos and so on, that the menu said - they were out of everything. The cheese on the burger was burn, two of us order... More

In desperation for dinner, stopped in to this place. It was depressing, didn't look really clean, very unfriendly staff. Then took a look at the super-limited menu, got more depressed. Then no one came over for a while so took the opportunity to re-assess.... and got out of there. Boy we felt better after leaving. Narrow escape from probably a... More

We had no wait for a table on a Monday evening. Our waitress was pleasant and prompt. The food was nothing spectacular but filled the hole. We were glad we didn't read the reviews beforehand... it really wasn't that bad. One suggestion is that the cook stay in the kitchen. Having words with the waitress in the dining room is... More

...to allow a restaurant this god-awful bad to exist so close to the signature attraction. Servers with absolutely no charm or patience for the tourist trade greet you by handing you the menus (for our party of five) and pointing where to sit. Then someone fresh out of rehab tells you that the item you want is 'one of those... More

My cell phone was roaming so I wasn't able to look it up on TripAdvisor. If I had I would have opted for something else. It took longer than expected to be greeted and shown to a table. Once we were seated it took our sever a longer than normal amount of time to even say hi. So long that... More

We arrived after a long, 9 hour drive, hungry and tired. The place was packed. 4 groups arrived after us, standing room only. My hubby wanted to leave, but I had such fond memories of the place, I wanted to stay. I was disappointed, but agreed, we were too tired to wait. Up comes the bartender -- a bright, perky... More
