The Knuckle Saloon

Reviewed By Noel E - Yuma, Arizona

We were in town for the Sturgis Mustang(Ford) Rally and decided to visit here. There is a gift store but it specializes in The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The Saloon is just that a saloon which serves food. Our server was also a bartender so OUR se4vice sucked as we had to ask other waitperson to get us refills etc.,,as ours was too busy taking car of the bar. The food was tasty when we alter it but not s much abut 6-8 hours later as I started to vomit and have other symptoms of whatever it was. ALL night. I have ordered the 1 pound hamburger and it did taste good BUT, see the below mentioned sickness. was the hamburger the culprit? it was the only thing I had that day BUT I willing to give some of the blame to the amount of food BUT wo knows for sure. Would I eat here again? Yes I would BUT I would NOT order the one pound hamburger just to be on the "safe" side.

I liked this place so much I paid $22.50 for a souvenir coffee cup! They roast their own coffee right there in front of you and we had some really good baked goods.

Think they're pretty much seasonal for the motorcycle rally but you can get a sandwich when open. Just fair. Recommend you walk a block north to Rosco's.

Broken Bean Coffee House

Reviewed By HoneyBrookMhh - Honey Brook

Three of us found this gem when looking to wait out a storm. Delicious beverages and beautifully decorated. Tables made from old doors that were found in the house when purchased, bench seats made from brass bed frames, just to name some of the creativity of this quaint little coffee shop. The owner and the employees very pleasant and helpful. Gift items throughout the shop are for sale, bought a beautiful basket before leaving. If in area be sure to stop in for a visit!

One Eyed Jack's Saloon

Reviewed By Scott B

We were inundated with flies inside the restaurant. We would not recommend One Eyed Jack's to anyone.

Understand it is rally week, so they should be prepared for large groups. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. We ended up waiting nearly an hour to get the entire order.

Honestly, if you want fantastic food and service go to the Montana Steal House. Avoid One Eyed Jack's like the plague.....

Featuring a world class restaurant, known for its great food and hospitality, this prime Sturgis location will reflect the rich character of the original Iron Horse Saloon(R) that bikers from all over the world have come to know and appreciate. The draw for many to Iron Horse Saloon(R) is a distinctive line up of awesome music from national acts of all genres, great beer and drinks, along with an affinity for motorcyclists of all types.

Reviewed By Gordon C - Carlsbad, California

We had a Wednesday lunch at the EasyRiders Saloon (although the big sign outside identifies it as the Iron Horse Saloon). The place was mostly empty when we arrived and we had our choice of tables in the bar/restaurant. Our server was very friendly and courteous. We both ordered beers and they were delivered promptly. My wife decided to do the buffalo wings and I had the open-face pot roast sandwich with mashed potatoes. Both dishes were presented nicely and the portions were huge. Everything was delicious and neither of us could finish. They had all sorts of Iron Horse and Sturgis souvenirs on sale and on display. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at the Iron Horse (EasyRiders).

Reviewed By classic_creators - yorkton

Here is another iconic American diner that transcends time,get there early or you'll be waiting for a while. I always stop by during the rally and park at the 1960's style front sitting stools and enjoy superb 'homestyle' cooking. Best breakfast in town for sure!!
