Good Food, Congenial Atmosphere

We saw this place on the edge of Custer and wanted to try it. We walked in and were able to be seated right away-a bonus during Sturgis Rally week. The menu was limited, but both my husband and I found something we could enjoy that fit with our eating habits. The food was very good, and it was... read more

Rolled into town at 8:55 PM and they were the only place that would wait for us to get there and eat dinner. Awesome burgers Barb the server was awesome! I highly recommend it!

The burger was the best we had in days on the road in Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota. Great onion rings and fries, delicious Sloopy Joes. Wonderful owner made us feel very welcomed!

We were in Custer for a wedding last weekend and my brother told me about this place so my husband and I went and ate lunch. The food was great the beer was cold and the lady behind the bar was friendly. It's great to go to a place and they actually speak to you. Will definitely go back again.

We spent the evening hiking Harney Peak and were starving afterwards. Everything seem to be closed so when we called this place we expected them to say the same. Instead the lady happily replied that she had a crowd and "what's one more?" They were very friendly and we didn't feel rushed. My husband and I ordered a combo from... More

We pulled in for a bite to eat with modest expectations, but wow - this place was great. Would definitely eat here again. We ordered the ribs and a BBQ chicken sandwich. Nearly everything on the plate was homemade and delicious. The owner was friendly and very knowledgable about the area. If you're driving through Custer and looking for great... More

Its a bar that serves basic food. The fried mushrooms were good and they had a good selection of beer. They were very short staffed so service was slow but all around it was ok.

We enjoyed our meal here. I had the burger with the jalepeno popper on it and thought it was a great burger! Brought our small kids and they were welcome. Nice patio out front to enjoy on a nice day. The burgers were a little small, they give you the option to upgrade to a bigger patty, which I would... More

Stopped here with family only after the Black Hills Burger and Bun company was standing room only for lunch and then again dinner service. Not a ton of choices in Custer in terms of variety. Saw this was rated #13 out of #35 or something and decided to give it a shot. We walked in and it was empty.....never a... More
