“Don't do it!!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

After watching our $11 & $12 brisket sandwiches sit in the window for 10 minutes (we were hoping they weren't ours...) we were served approximately 7or 8 little slices of brisket on a plain bun with a tiny squirt of BBQ sauce and about 12 french fries to go with it. It was not even that busy- our server was talking to the person in the kitchen through the window over our food, we were sitting at the closest table. The meat was actually pretty good, but with prices like that there should be a little bit more to it- and not served cold!!

“So Disappointed!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I am not sure if we just hit this place at a terrible time or it is just us, but this place was very disappointing. We stopped for a late lunch and the only tables available were outside (which was fine). We ordered a brisket sandwich, a pulled pork sandwich and 1 soda and the bill was $27. The food arrived cold, and actually quite small. Not real bbq at all. Very disappointing.

“Favorite Place in SD”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Red's Chicken House was excellent! The staff was very friendly and the food was just
as great. I had a barbecued grilled chicken sandwich with potato salad and my
sister had a beef brisket sandwich with fries. Both dishes were fantastic. They
also had pork, beef, and a variety of sides (I do not remember what else they
served but the menu was pretty big). Very cute little place close to Rushmore-
just make sure you get there early or it will be packed!

“No chicken but service was good”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

They stayed open later than normal to accomodate us hungry travelers but their roaster was broke so they were not serving chicken. We enjoyed our second choices nonetheless.

“Good food at the end of the road”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

My wife and I ate here after a day of sight-seeing in the area and we were very glad we did. The service is slow and yes there are flies and both of those should be addressed, but the food is excellent. The fried chicken and fries are totally great and plentiful sized. My wife had the ribs and said they were as good as the best she had ever had (mine). I tasted one of hers and she was right. The decor is austere and there were only two servers in a fair sized restaurant but the food is the reason for being here and it does not disappoint.
