Super Good.

New location and very nice it is. The service was very good, but the food was over the top good. The price was very reasonable. We had the buffalo burgers. Perfectly cooked, juicy and tasty. The buns were very fresh. They offer a choice of sides. We had regular fries which were very good and sweet... read more

Really good burger selection! Sweet potato fries were delicious! Unique flavor combinations, very favorable flavors on homemade buns. You can tell the ingredients used are high quality. The only thing that would make it better would be fresh hand cut fries!

The burger choices here are creative and delicious. My husband had a burger with fried eggs and bacon and other deliciousness. He really enjoyed it. The burger was made from freshly prepared ground meat. He also had wonderful baked beans with his burger. I had the Hawaiian burger with teriyaki sauce, pineapple and crisp bacon. Both the burger and fries... More

Seriously. Just what the title says. This joint is way overhyped; do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. Line is constantly an absolute Cluster in Custer. The host is short and ill-mannered. Burgers are nothing to write home about. Better food is less than 50 feet away at the Bull.

Black Hills Burger and Bun prides itself on a "quality above quantity" motto. We make all our burgers and sandwiches to order from freshly ground meats and baked-that-day buns. If hand breaded cheese curds and homemade pretzel fingers aren't your thing, we understand. If you don't care for house-made baked beans, potato salad, or coleslaw, we understand. If you don't...

We had a very nice time at this little place. The food was outstanding. The service was very friendly even though it was very crowded. We had the buffalo burger and sweet potato fries. I would suggest this place to anyone who visits Custer.

We found this place on Trip Advisor prior to our trip as hubby is vegetarian so always good to suss out places that accommodate him before travelling. We arrived at 1140 for an early lunch as weather was awful to find the place jam packed...didn't want to leave as that's normally a sign the place is really good and after... More

We had read that this was good and wanted to go there. We were on our way back from a day of site seeing. We read that they were closing at 7:30 and thought that it was a joke. We arrived at 7:18 to a crowd, and were told that they had run out of buns and were sold out.... More

I'm sorry that you felt the need to post a poor review of our restaurant. We work very hard to provide freshly prepared and high quality food. I am sorry that you weren't able to eat "Trip Advisor's Best Burger in the US" while on your trip. We were fortunate to be given this title based on fair, accurate reviews... More

It's been a year or so, maybe two since I'd eaten there. They had been fairly new and I wasn't totally impressed. First off the place was tiny and tight and couldn't accommodate a party of more than 4 it seemed. And to be honest the burgers weren't anything that I'd go back for then. The buns were overwhelming of... More
