We were staying in the nice Blue Bell Campground and on our first night we decided to have dinner at the lodge. What a mistake that was. I ordered the buffalo meatloaf and found it to be VERY dry and only only acceptable with lots of gravy and mashed potatoes. I also ordered a margarita which was served in a tall beer glass...strange sight. The place was empty but the decor was pleasant and the service from Carlos was great. Because of a powerful overnight thunderstorm we decided to return for breakfast and found the food to be worse than the prior evening. My tomato juice had that tin can taste and the eggs and potatoes just didn't taste right. My western omelet was cooked with bell peppers when I specifically asked for no bell peppers. There was only one variety of packaged jam (grape) available on the tables. If you must eat at a restaurant, head into Custer, 17 miles west.
