A little overrated

Apparently a local favourite. The service was great, the staff and patrons colourful, the food average. Not a lot of choices in Hot Springs and I would certainly choose this over other options.

Country style, lots of food at a super price. Everything is FRESH. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the Black Hills. Great with kids.

Such great food for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just for pie and coffee to visit with friends and travelers. A very delicious home-cooked menu. Excellent special and buffet every day.

This should really be three and a half stars. The food was fine, nothing to write home about but it was kind of pricey for what you get. Service was excellent, friendly and quick

Have had both good and fair meals here. Last week had some of the best roast beef there. Salad bar was good soup was ok. Another time ate a ground sirloin here that was not that good.

Dining choices at the end of Sep are few in Hot Springs. Many places are closed for the season. Others are closed permanently for a variety of reasons. Dale's appears to be year-round and gets good breakfast crowds - not so much for lack of competition as because they are good. Good service, good prices, good food, and a nice... More

Great restaurant with a genuine home cooked breakfast. The omelettes were awesome...the green chili was great and the scrambler was fantastic. The server and cashier were friendly. There were a lot of locals eating here, so we figured it would have good food. We would definitely eat here if ever in Hot Springs again.

This being our 3td year to stay in Hot Springs while we visit the Buffalo Roundup and Crazy Horse Volksmarch, we usually get breakfast at Dale's. This year it seems that the food quality (for breakfas)t was not up to past standards. The coffee was weak. Dishwater weak. The scrambled eggs, weren't. They were, apparently, allowed to sit in the... More

We had breakfast here the day we left. The building is old but appeared to be clean. The staff was friendly and the food was good.
