We stopped in at the Buglin Bull for lunch while staying a few days in Custer and were delighted with their Charbroiled Hearts of Romaine and Sweet Potato Crunch Salads with grilled chicken. Getting enough veggies while traveling can be a challenge and this was the perfect lunch. Normally I avoid "sports bars", but we found the restaurant very nice... More

My husband and I ate buffalo burgers with Parmesan garlic fries. Good meal at reasonable prices. We also enjoyed the individual TV screen at our table.

We had dinner here after searching all over town for a descent priced steak. They have a great menu, and our steak was amazing. It was cooked to order and tender..... Everything about dinner was pleasant. It was served in a timely fashion, and the server was really good, he chatted and gave good suggestions and really wanted you to... More

This was a charming place for a beer and a burger in the evening - so we went back the next day and sat at the bar fir a beer snd an appetizer and was completely ignored by the bartender- so much for that place!

Hello bradygirl48, We are disappointed to hear that your recent experience with us did not live up to the same accolades of your previous one. It is upsetting to hear that you were not offered equally exceptional service by the bartender upon your second visit with us. Would you be able to provide us with the date and time you... More

Nothing spectacular about lunch. Your usual fare, adequately prepared, nice service. Would I go there again and recommend it? Probably not. Sorry

Busy place, food was average, probably frozen chicken. They had run out of several selections on the menu and we were there early, about 5:30 pm. They had also run out of a couple of their micro brew beers!

dat63, We are happy you gave us a review but are not too happy to see we ran out several selections and some micro brew selections you were looking to try. We will be taking a look further into this situation as this is not something that normally happens at our establishment. We hope you come back soon to give... More

Family of five adults. Late dinner (8:00 PM). Place was active but not busy. Comfortable setting. Menu was good. Lots of unique burgers (not entirely your standard fare). Pizzas (savory). Salads (nice options). Appetizers (variety). Main dishes (very native to the Black Hills). Our group had wings, hummus flat bread, steak tips, margarita pizza and crunchy sweet potato salad. Didn't... More

Can't comment on all food as we both had bison burgers but they were tasty. Fries just so so. Menu was nice choices. Service fast and friendly. Interior needs updating.
