BBQ Brisket sandwich was excellent. Portions are large. We sat outside and watched the sites go by (Sturgis SD week). This is one of the few places where we found a craft beer in SD (outside of the local breweries). Entertaining staff! Worth the stop!

Happened on this place while driving back and forth from Rapid City and Mt Rushmore, and Hot Springs. Mom had their bison(buffalo) burger with cole slaw (tasty, but a tad dry, which is easy to do with bison), Kid had brisket sandwich with fries (plentiful), and I had 2 pieces of chicken and fries which were actually very good. Condiments... More

We were tired after a busy day and we thought this would be a quick meal. The place is very small but was clean. The waitress was very nice. We each ordered bison burgers and fries. They were okay, nothing extraordinary but not bad, either. The fries were decent and the price was good. I wouldn't go rushing back there... More

I had a pulled pork sandwich and it was delicious! Wish I lived closer as I'd like to try the other entrees offered. Hopefully I can return some day!

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!
