$6.50 for two biscuits and Buffalo gravy filled with fat. Our waitress served an incorrect order and began to argue claiming I ordered what she delivered. Why? Makes no sense. Sour-dough pancakes tasted great. Eggs cooked over easy improperly. Bacon was OK. Coffee($2.50) was good. $25.00 out the door with tip.

The food here was great. Got an Indian Taco (small) that was plenty of food, and I'm a bigger guy. Tasted great, too. Good service and the location is amazing. Can't wait to go back!

Decided not to have breakfast in our Deadwood hotel, but look for something "on the road" on our way back to Colorado. And we were so glad we did. A funky place with a restaurant, general store and some lodging. The corned beef hash seemed to appeal to both both me and my husband, and we were not disappointed. We... More

Service very good; homemade carrot cake outstanding; food was fine; the indian taco was too thick. Husband had breakfast and it was great.

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

The Indian Taco was awesome, large portions. My husband and I ordered 1 small and split it for lunch, we were both full and it was amazing. I was disappointed that we didn't have room for dessert, we heard from several locals that those are also delicious. Highly recommend, wish we lived closer. Definitely on our list to return to...
