We were starving after driving the Iron Mountain Road and this was the first restaurant we encountered going into Keystone. It's part of a big strip mall full of souvenir shops. The BBQ was okay, but a little pricey. We had to eat outside and fight the houseflies for lunch. (On our ten day trip, seemed like lots of restaurants... More

The food was good and had some great flavor. The kids led the wings and the brisket was good. The chicken sandwich was very dry, but the potato salad and baked beans made up for it. You might have to fight the flies for your food. The place could be cleaned and the staff needs a smile. Won't eat here... More

Food is way OVERPRICED and not that good, plus it gave me the runs. The waitress was fighting with the cook and rude to other customers. Flies were everywhere.To call this place BAD is an understatement it was TERRIBLE. Please don't make the same mistake as I did. Go elsewhere, your wife, kids, wallet, self respect and colon will thank... More

We had beef brisket and BBQ on a wonderful bun. The kids had chicken strips and hand-cut homemade fries. The potato salad was wonderful! Service was great and we all left full. It was a bit pricey, but it seemed like everything in Keystone was overpriced. For 2 kids and 1 adult meal, it was $55, not including tip.

Hubby and I stopped at Red's because it said "cold beer" and it was the first eating/drinking establishment in Keystone by the way we traveled. The place is very small and they do specialize in chicken and ribs. Prices seemed a little high and since it was lunch we each had a burger. We had the buffalo burger, and being... More

We had a chicken dinner at Reds. We usually do a little research, but made a cold call in this case.. It is down the road from Mount Rushmore. The place could use a little cleaning, but I can recommend the Chicken highly. Food was good and the experience was pleasant.

Red's Chicken House and BBQ, Keystone, SD is some of the best Texas Tasted B-B-Que. Red is quite a character and does have a really great little place for B-B-Q. Closest food faire to the famous Mount Rushmore!. Stop by, you won't forget it.

We're here in Keystone while we're visiting Mount Rushmore. We wanted to have something out of the ordinary and local. So we stumbled upon this place. We ordered their Bomb sandwich and Ribs. We liked our spicy brisket sandwich and the ribs. Although it didn't look like brisket as we're used to in Texas but we did enjoy it. Overall... More
