“Buffalo Burgers!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stopped in Thirsty's today for lunch while traveling through to see the beautiful Black Hills! The Buffalo Burger is a must along with the homemade fries. They had the option of cottage cheese for my side but...well it's vacation!!

“Ok but Nothing Special”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Food was just ok. Nothing special. Service was a little slow even though the place wasn't too busy. But we have run into that a lot in Rapid City so maybe that's just a regional difference.

K D: I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations! We pride ourselves on the quality of our food and prompt, friendly service but we obviously dropped the ball in both categories last night and for that I apologize! We will be discussing your concerns at our next staff meeting. Please give us another try. Our service WILL be up to your standards and I hope you will find something on our menu to your liking! Thanks for the input, we will do our best to measure up to your expectations

“The kids like playing pool!”

My son found a hair in his food and my other son food was still frozen. They didn't eat the rest of the meal but liked playing pool. My husband which will eat anything, he liked his meal.

“Great Service”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Overall very satisfied with the service, food, and drinks every time we've been there. They're very consistent and has been a quiet, less busy place. We go here every time Murphy's can't seat us or when Murphy's hosts aren't friendly.

“Good Lunch”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We sat in the restaurant and watched the NCAA tournament. We were never rushed and enjoyed great food at a decent price. We watched 3 basktetball games and had a great time.
