OK ... but, Nothing Fancy

Living in Custer, there are limited options for restaurants during the off-season. So, one cannot complain too much. However, if you are visiting the area and simply want some bar food with a few drinks, pretty good place. Otherwise, if you are looking for quality, go someplace else. Our... read more

We stopped by on the way from Jewel Cave back to Hot Springs. Only a few locals inside. During the summer, this is probably a busy place with an outdoor patio and a stage for live band. Service was friendly and our food came out in good time. We enjoyed a salad each and split some Honey Garlic Buffalo Wings.... More

We were here for the annual Buffalo Roundup - so technically the "off" season, but still a large event. Trying to get food ANYWHERE around here was a nightmare! Why is NOBODY open? We'd been here for drinks the night before, so we headed down there, hoping they'd be open. Lucky us - they were! We were the only customers... More

I went here with my family because I heard they had the best burgers in town. I definitely wasn't disappointed. The food was delicious and fast, and the service was even better! I had a wonderful experience and would love to go back for my next trip!

Limited menu burgers, chicken sandwiches. My burger of the week was good. My spouses burger was plain no pickles and not as good as serval other spots n Custer. Fries were good cole slaw was not that good. Beer was a little high priced for the atmosphere of the place.

Huge outside seating, lots of inside seating, and a stage for entertainment. This place seems to have a ton of potential. The waitress was exceptional. Friendly environment. The burger and fries were barely average. Seemed like a pre-made burger that would have been nearly tasteless had it not been for the bacon and barbecue sauce. Would go back for to... More

Food selection is average and the food tastes the same. Service was on the same level and then what can one expect from college students, maybe training?
