“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Had the breakfast here two days in a row. That should tell you something. The food was good and the wait staff great.

“Horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We went to this restaurant and were told to sit anywhere....we sat down and waited....and waited.....and waited. Never got a menu...never got a drink ordered and all the while the 3 different groups of people that came in AFTER us were waited on, given menus and orders taken...we walked out and went to Desperado Cowboy Restaurant where we were seated right away, waited on right away and ordered right away. I will NEVER do back to this place again...EVER

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

Read a lot of mixed reviews - service was a bit slow but friendly, they were really busy at our time of visit. My husband had the rib special and they were great..meat fell right off the bone. My burger was also good hand pattied.

“Buffet food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We came to the cafe and thought we would try their buffet. It was 5:00 pm and they were just bringing out the food for the buffet. We got our salads and I got a little soup to try. The soup was in a hot well but was cool. I didn't eat anymore of that. Then the staff stocked chicken alfredo, ribs, fried chicken, spaggitti, and mixed vegis. I tried the spaggitti and it was cold. Tried the vegis and cold again. ALL of the items that were just put on the steam table were cold. The manager apologized and said their zapper wasn't working right and someone forgot to plug in the steam table. There was really no excuse that made since to us. We noticed them taking the food in and out of the kitchen with bare hands not with oven mitts which would indicate they were hot. The tongs and spoons were the only items hot on this buffet and that was from the heat lamps. We were worried we would get food poisoning as we had a long drive the next day and a flight, but some how dodged that bullet. I would stick to the order menu so it's hot.

“Great breakfast place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Great breakfast! We had fast service and loved the food. We have stopped here every morning for breakfast during our visit to Hill City, and haven't been disappointed yet! The servers were personable and answered our questions about the historical photos they have around the restaurant. Definitely worth the stop!
