Good Food. Good Service.

With the area lacking in alternatives, we decided to have dinner here after visiting Mount Rushmore. It is a small diner staffed by young guys and an older gentleman who was probably the owner. The service was quick and we were pleasantly surprised about how good the chicken tasted and in a huge... read more

We are a family of 6 and were on a MT Rushmore Vacation. After a long day of area sightseeing, we opted for this place, because my husband loves BBQ! Having seen a large billboard for this place several miles away, we thought it must be pretty good. The place itself was a tiny little hole in the wall -... More

It was a really small place. Very crowded. The food wasn't horrible but it really wasn't good either.... We were wishing that we had of picked somewhere else.

Listen to your gut! The place was empty on a Friday evening (not a good sign) but we decided to try it out anyway. We ordered our drinks and were ready to place our order when the waiter informed us they didn't have the main ingredients for two of the dinners we wanted, the menu is small to begin with.... More

We chose this place because it was close and looked like it had what we were looking for. We were outraged at the cost of the food and worse yet the quality! For what we paid ... For a family of 4 ( 4 burgers an order of wings and 2 soft drinks.. Nearly $80 .. Any extras were an... More

Nothing fancy, just a small diner. Food was quite good (brisket and pulled pork). Good size portions. Server very personable; told us about her Lakota culture (unsolicited). Some would find it interesting, but others may not and conflict may ensue.

Stopped for lunch after Mount Rushmore. The chicken was dried out and tasteless. The ribs left a bad taste in your mouth. The potato salad was very good. Service was okay. We would not return.

Very good Buffalo burger and great Briskett sandwich. The fries were fresh and perfectly cook. the service was fast and friendly. It is a simple place, do not expect anything fancy. but is worth trying the food. We will come back again.

They have fresh cut french fries!!!! These are a family favorite. They also were very friendly. My daughter has multiple allergies and they cooked her a buffalo burger and fries with no problems. We sat outside and asked the owner if my son could bring up a pizza from the place down the side walk and he said, "yes and... More
