Okay, if you want the single best burger in the United States, go here. It's too small for the customer volume and the wait can be long but it is worth it. Everything here is home made and it tastes like it. The buns--home made. The meat (both beef and buffalo) are local. The veggies--local. Local brews in their cooler... More

This place came recommended from a total stranger in Rapid City. He knew what he was talking about. You might need to wait in line but it is worth the wait. Go for the buffalo you will not regret it. I would go back in an instant. Just tremendous.

Best burgers ever! Best meal of our trip. My husband had a buffalo burger which was great too. Staff was friendly; kids loved it. Opens at 5:00 and fills up right away so get there at 5 if you like to eat early. It is a small cute place.

Really sorry to see some of the poor ratings for this place as we were there in early June and just happened in to the Black Hill Burger and Bun Co. for an early dinner. We were promptly greeted and seated right away. Our server was fantastic!! She was very friendly and accommodating. The burgers we had were very good... More

The burgers were good, but not good enough to justify waiting an hour to get a table. To be honest I'm not even sure if they were good at all or if we were just starved by the time we ate. The hostess did tell us to expect a wait of 45-50 minutes (she was close). I'm guessing the dinner... More

My husband had the the fun guy with mushrooms and veggies and I had the Texan. The jalapeños made it so yummy! I asked for the jalapeños on the side but ended up loving the flavor with the pepper jack cheese. 😊 We got to our seats in 15 minutes on a Wednesday night about 6:15. These are the juiciest... More

We had a hard time finding good food. We were not let down with this one. We came in around 11 am for lunch and the place was mostly full. The place is small but nicely decorated. We were seated at a wood table there were 4 of us. This place gets super busy very quickly, so be prepared to... More

My sister and I walked up around noon and people were standing outside waiting for a table. We instantly decided this was a place we wanted to eat! We made our way inside to find out the wait was 30 minutes or so. We placed our name on the waiting list and walked around the historical sites near-by. We returned... More

We were on our way to Wind Cave & stopped in Custer for lunch. The burger menu has such uncommon options and all sounded good. It was hard to choose. Our table ordered the blu-burger, Buffalo burger, and I had the Hawaiian. OMG! The Hawaiian is rowdy in a very good way. I tasted the blue & it was good... More
