“Diner right out of the past - Arnold's in Rapid City, SD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

What a fun place. We really enjoyed this diner, the Chicken-fried Steak was excellent. The Juke Box was loaded with tunes from my youth, and the accessibility was very good. I would return and advise my friends how much fun this place was.

“Great breakfast spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We dined at Arnold's two days in a row for breakfast and absolutely recommend it. Both of our servers were extremely friendly, fast, and a delight to be served by. The food is homemade, hot, and tasty - plus it's extra fun because of the 50's/60's atmosphere. We will be back again on our next trip!

Kids loved the old school feel. Service was good, food was yummy, and location was convenient right next to our hotel.

“Wouldn't go out of your way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Too many other good reasonably priced places to eat on this street. About this place's only advantage is it's a 100 yard walk from the Ramada Inn without crossing any streets.
