4. Bomb Ass Burritos
Bonafide Foods

(Near the Patriot Pavilion)

Simply put, you must not miss the food from the Bonafide Foods truck. Thankfully the painting of a jolly spoon and plate skipping through a tranquil mountain scene on its side will make that hard to do. All of their chef-inspired recipes utilize high quality ingredients, locally sourced when possible, and they are so beautifully prepared you’ll be just as tempted to photograph your food as you will be to devour it.

5. Frozen Arnold Palmer
Michell’s Homemade Ice Cream

(Located at the CrossRoads)

August afternoons in the Black Hills of South Dakota can get HOT, and on days like those nothing hits the spot better than something ice cold and sweet. Michell’s Homemade Ice Cream offers a variety of delectable frosty concoctions to cool your sweet tooth, including homemade ice cream, banana splits, root beer floats, flurries, shakes and sundaes. However their most unique eat is their frozen Arnold Palmer. Be sure to track them down at CrossRoads and try one when the sun is beating down on you.

6. Hawaiian Pulled Pork Burrito
Wanda’s Kitchen

(Located at the CrossRoads)

Wanda’s Kitchen is a new local business in the area and a new vendor at the Buffalo Chip, but they are far from being green when it comes to whipping up delicious home-cooked dishes with a bit of a Colorado kick. Taco burgers, bean burritos, Huevos Rancheros, and green chili are some of the items you can find on their menu, but perhaps the most unique among these dishes is the Hawaiian pulled pork burrito. You can’t go wrong with anything from Wanda’s Kitchen, so swing by their location in the CrossRoads and give them a try.

7. Lobster Mac & Cheese
Tee’s Concessions

(Located at Bikini Beach & Amphitheater)

Tee’s Concessions lobster mac & cheese is the perfect marriage between high class and down home. Creamy mac & cheese topped with shredded, tender and oh-so-flavorful lobster will make you want to go back for as many helpings as you can gulp down. But don’t limit yourself– they also offer delectable pulled pork mac & cheese if seafood isn’t your thing.

8. Saint Lucia Big Bite breakfast buffet
Santa Lucia Mediterranean Grill

(Located in the Amphitheater & CrossRoads)

The Saint Lucia Big Bite breakfast buffet offers fresh-squeezed orange juice, fruit juices and more for those looking to start their day the Mediterranean way.

Add extra flavor with fresh-squeezed juices to take your gyro to the next level.

9. The “David Bowie” Pizza
Pie for the People

(Located at CrossRoads & Bikini Beach)

Ground control to Major Tom, the David Bowie from Pie for the People is so tasty that after one bite you’ll want to put on your red shoes and dance. White sauce, mozzarella, bacon, roasted pineapple, jalapeños, Guinness-caramelized onions and topped with plum sauce, this pie is one of the most unique slices you’ll find anywhere. In fact, if you think you’re going to find a better slice of pizza anywhere else during the Sturgis rally, you can "fuhgeddaboudit!" If the David Bowie doesn’t sound like your thing, then try the Dean Martin, Buffalo Soldier, Barry White or make it your own with everything from basil and garlic to pepperoni and sausage.

10. Frisbee Nachos
Buffalo Grill

(Located in Amphitheater)

The famous Frisbee nachos at the Buffalo Grill are conceptually simple– a heaping pile of delicious nachos with all the fixin’s served atop a usable Frisbee, But it’s not just the concept that makes them so good, it’s the healthy and delicious 100% pure Buffalo products they use in the nachos, burgers and brats. A trip to the Chip just wouldn’t be complete without stopping by the Buffalo Grill. Catering is offered to large groups as well.

11. Rebel Yell ‘n’ Apple Pie Gourmet Caramel Apple

Bite into paradise with the only apple you need to be over 21 to buy–the Rebel Yell ‘n’ Apple Pie Gourmet Caramel Apple. In addition to this unique Tennessee bourbon-laced confection, Caramel Creations offers a variety of caramel apples with different toppings making each unique apple a flavorful masterpiece. 

12. Heavy Metal Brew
Coffee Crib

For some folks, hard rock music is the only stimulant they need.
