An April Monday in Custer, SD has very few restaurants open for the tourist season yet. After 'normal' lunchtime, we were hungry after a scenic drive through the Black Hills. This place was the only non-fast-food chain place we found open. The menu had onion rings, and I thought, what the neck - -let's see what they do with these... More

My wife and I were passing through Custer on the way to the east coast from CO. They are open year round with good food and stiff drinks, both excellent especially for the price.

Yummy burgers, sloppy joes, sweet potatoe fries and cole slaw. Our waitress, Tami, was super friendly and provided wonderful service! Pool table and real wood burning fireplace are nice!

We knew we were coming to Custer during off season and this was one of the few places open. We tried it for dinner based on trip advisor and were very disappointed. Usually trip advisor reviews are spot on and I don't worry if most are positive. This time, the negative reviewers got it right. Reminded me of an old... More
