We dropped in on the weekend of the Sturgis Rally on the way back from Mount Rushmore. Of course there were many bikers outside but we were not put off by this and went inside to a very friendly welcome. The food came very quickly and was absolutely delicious - best brisket we had on our whole fortnight. I would... More

Great brisket and fantastic Buffalo ribs! Service was great too! Closest to Texas Style smoked brisket I've found here in South Dakota. Homemade BBQ sauce too!

This restaurant is conveniently located in a little shopping strip in Keystone. Posted specials looked interesting. I had the special with French fries topped with brisket and melted cheese. Kind of a different offering, but pretty tasty. Large portion as well. My wife enjoyed her pulled pork sandwich. Kids menu was good. My daughter like her chicken tenders and my... More

My family stopped here to eat while we waited for our hotel room to get ready. As we walked down the strip looking for a restaurant the owner or a manager made eye contact with us and asked, "do you want a table for 3?" so we said yes and ate there. The customer was good. I saw the waitresses... More

Stopped in during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. We ordered pulled pork sandwiches, one with cole slaw and the other with fries. The sandwiches arrived with a meager amount of meat with only a "warm" temperature. The amount of meat on both sandwiches should have been the amount for one sandwich. The buns were not stale, but they were certainly not... More

The ribs were practically inedible. Sauce was bland...Kraft, I think. Fries were allegedly "fresh cut", but I question which month they were cut and cooked. Do yourself a favor...DON'T TRY IT!!!

Met with family members for lunch & it was great. Homemade cheeseburgers were huge and delicious. Had a great menu too. The atmosphere was casual and fun. Can't wait to go back.

Went there for lunch. They post their specials outside on the board. Make sure you check them out. We ate their half chicken for two and two sides. It was pretty expensive for chicken but it was delicious. The portions were big. Both of us were pleased and satisfied with our meal.

Thank Dalinda G
