My husband and I stopped at the Rusty Spur on our way back from our Mount Rushmore vacation in July. We both ordered the steak, bake potato and salad bar. It was fantastic! The best steak I have had in a long time. We would definetly make a point if stopping again when we head back to South Dakota.

I thought drive-ins were drive-ins but this one is a little more. Had lots of people come in as we sat there enjoying a cold drink! It is clean and easily accessible. We enjoyed our snack in thge middle of the afternoon.

Good service. Basic diner fare. Typical prices. Clean. I swear it looks like a place you'd see Jack Reacher in a booth hitching a ride to his next adventure!

Had lunch on our way across S Dakota. The grass fed burger was really good! They are open seasonally while school age staff are out of school. Nice clean little restaurant.

We stopped here for lunch passing through. They have locally raised, grass fed beef burgers topped of with home grown ripe tomatoes! Pleasant staff, good food and clean. A couple notes: Open between Mothers Day and 8/31. They are past the gas station and stop sign on east/right side.

The food was great. The portion size was generous. The hamburgers were awesome. The ice cream was very tasty and the banana Split was amazing.
