Wife and I stopped in for lunch on our way to Yellowstone. Both the tacos and bison burger were outstanding and highly recommend them.

We have been past Cheyenne Crossing many times, and only stopped for a break or to use the restroom. But today, we were ready for a good meal, and we were very pleased. My husband had eggs, sausage, and hashbrowns, all cooked to perfection. I had the Bison burger and hand cut fries! Now if you have never had a... More

On a first-time trip to Spearfish we thought Cheyenne Crossing looked like a good lunch stop. We added our name to the wait list. There was some confusion at the hostess stand...a couple names on the list but no one obviously waiting, some people walking in without a word to the hostess, looking around and taking a table. So, assuming... More

This is a great place for breakfast - homemade sourdough pancakes were delicious. Went back again to try the biscuits, which were just as good as the pancakes. Tried the Indian Taco for lunch and it was delicious too. The service was excellent and the entire staff was friendly and welcoming.

Started out our Spearfish Canyon drive here with breakfast. My wife and I ordered the Beef Tips, Eggs, Hash browns, Biscuits and Gravy from a wonderful waitress. There was enough in one order for the both of us. Price was similar to IHOP, but the food and service is better. Everything was good, though I did not care for the... More

Our hotel owner recommended this place for Indian tacos. We ordered the small size and it was very generous portion. Waiter was fun and we enjoyed doing a little shopping in their gift store.
