Rapid City, SD area

Our vacation out West starts in just about a week.  We are spending three nights in the Rapid City/Mount Rushmore/Badlands National Park area of South Dakota.  Not much in the area on the Roadfood website.  I really could use some good advice of where to eat.  We are open to any and all suggestions!  Thanks!

    OK!  Here goes!  grab your cowboy hats and head out to a chuckwagon supper and cowboy show....................makes for a cheap evening and you get to eat buffalo. We did it and had lots of laughs and the buffalo was really good.

    We really like the Colonial House for breakfast. It's right on Rushmore Road. We haven't been for 2 years, but every year, for 3 years before that, we had breakfast on the way to Seattle. It was enjoyable every time. I believe the original owner and chef passed away in the last year or so, but his family is still running the place. Check with Davydd, I think he may have stopped there, as well.

    Enjoy your stay in the beautiful black hills! The colonial house is indeed a fine place to eat. The Beshara family owns the CHR&B, this week celebrating 30 years in business. Order the almond cream pie...my favorite. Ribs, steaks,the best liver and onions around, you won't be disappointed. Also dont miss the house baked bread, hope for Canberry walnut. Also on the list are Delmonicos, Tally Silver Spoon, firehouse brewing co. If you head to Custer look for the Purple Pie Place. In the badlands check around for Wooden Knife fry bread Indian tacos. Tell Kevin at chrb paintman sent you! Happy travels!

    If, by chance you get over to Deadwood, be sure to stop at the Tin Lizzie Casino/Restaurant.  Excellent food (award-winning chef) at totally unbelievable low prices!  (AYCE Breakfast buffet or AYCE Lunch soup & salad bar or Dinner specials that are different each day or Indian taco or Hot beef with mashed potatoes & gravy or.......... = $4.99)

    Welcome to Roadfood!  Thanks so much for chiming in with your first post.  Those look to be some excellent suggestions.  You especially caught my attention with the pie ideas.  If you know anyplace in the area where I can get some sour cream raisin pie, I would be ever so grateful!
    And thanks to zataar and 6star.  Those places look well worth checking out.

    Not wanting to sound like a huckster for chrb, try the Robbinsdale bowling alley cafe in rapid city for your sour cream raisin fix. This place might still serve hand cut fries. I'll be checking that out in the near future. Chrb does serve sour cream raisin also and it is excellent, crammed with raisins. Good luck!

    Just called robbinsdale cafe, sour cream raisin only every third week,whatever that means and no more hand cut fries. That place is slipping. By the way, buy the whole pie to go @ chrb, a fraction of the cost and you can really go nuts with your pie fix, hopefully your travel partners like the same pie as you.

    Thanks for calling Robbinsdale Cafe for me.  It sounds like it would be well worth checking out, even if it doesn't happen to sour cream raisin pie week.
     
    Colonial House will be visited for certainly!
     
    We are actually spending Monday night in Spearfish and are looking for a place for breakfast the next morning.  Latchstring Inn in Lead?  Maybe Millstone Restaurant, where I can follow up breakfast with more pie?

    Check out the Cedar House in Spears for pie, have had pretty good luck there. While in Spearfish ask around for the Termesphere gallery. Mr. Termes creates globe shaped art utilizing his "fourth" dimension. Aust see iny book. He is very gracious and if he is around will gladly try to help you wrap your head around his unique style of painting.
