While driving through to Rapid City, we had to stop at the famous city of Sturgis. It wasn’t too busy. We had some chicken sliders which were good but the beer was better.

Decor is definitely worth a trip - very eclectic (you will never know what can be hung from the ceiling!). As for the food, the beef tips were really salty and the rest of the food was average. Bumped the rating up to a 4...More
