Wanted to try one of the other local eateries, so we picked Sal's today. The four of us, had a good meal, although we had to wait for the fryer to heat up. Seems the owner had forgotten to turn them on. Also per her story, seems they currently are making some changes & renovations. So there were some oddities, like quickly made tartar sauce from mayo with freshly cut pickle chunks. And Salad that was only two small pieces of lettuce with one tomato slice.
Despite the delay our meals were good. The gal helping Sal by taking orders was her good friend, and the two of them shared quite a bit about the changes taking place. If you are not in a hurry & enjoy a Mom & Pop place, then give it a try.

We were in the area to visit the Little Bighorn Battlefield and after a wonderful morning there, were looking for lunch. Happened upon Sal's Diner in Hardin which was only a 15 minute drive. This ended up being a two hour lunch since the experience was such fun! Sal's is very small, occupancy about 15. However, the 50's decor complete with the original formica tables and chairs in all colors, made you feel that you were eating in someone's home. We had bacon and egg sandwiches and BLTs. Nothing fancy but homemade bread made our lunches special. Milkshakes took us back to our childhoods. The highlight, however, was Sal herself. Sal came and introduced herself and visited while our lunch was prepared. She was preparing dinner (Tater Tot Casserole and swiss steak) for a custom harvesting crew of 20 men. By the time we left, our friends were having a ball helping with the Tater Tot Casserole and we felt like old friends. Sal took us into the adjoining building to see the Western Store she also operates. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will certainly seek out her restaurant again when in the area. She opens for breakfast and lunch but not dinner.
