Expected Better

I had the California Turkey wrap. Overall it was a decent wrap, however, there was brown lettuce on it. The fries seem to be handcuff and although the flavor was good, the fries were grossly undercooked. For as spendy as they are, I expected better

I've travelled the world for 50 years and never, never threw out food until I went to BaRLee's for carryout. I threw it out and went hungry. My taco salad looked like the taco had been fried in used car oil. Tasted like it, too. My companion, without any communication with me, also tossed her hamburger. We didn't want to... More

My family ate lunch here & it was the best meal & service we have had our whole trip! I enjoyed the smoked BBQ pulled pork sandwich, my daughter had the homemade dipped chicken strips & my husband had the club sandwich. They have fresh cut fries & homemade (delicious) ranch dressing! No complaints here!! Highly recommend if you ate... More

Have eaten at this restaurant twice while in Keystone, SD. Had excellent service and great food both times. First time we had deep fried pickles which were ok, and a club sandwich & Rueben sandwich. Both were really good with the home made chips. Second time we had the smoked chicken & smoked ribs. Both were excellent. Portions were huge... More

We had the best meal here, very big portions and enjoyed the homemade fries and chip. Great service. Will be going back to this restaurant on our next trip to South Dakota.

Give the lack of opportunities and as we were tired, we visited this place despite the average reviews. Especially as the smoky smell was so nice. We should have known better. Food was very disappointing. The salad was the best. The rack of ribs was not tender and didn't fell of the bone whatsoever. A shame. In addition and I... More

Next to Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Keystone. The evening we went, they were out of a lot of food items on the menu. There is a bar downstairs which was doing a land office business, but the restaurant which is located upstairs and has a ramp for handicapped, is not well lighted, was not that busy, but perhaps...

Food served cold after waiting 1/2 hour when not busy, table next to us, food looked cold- dried on sauce on the ribs and sawing at the steak. Server did not offer to do anything for us. No drink refills. $12 burger and "homemade fries" may have been better if they were at least warm.... the lady walking around, perhaps... More
