There’s no place on earth like Sturgis Buffalo Chip®, so it should come as no surprise that while you’re at The Best Party Anywhere® you can enjoy totally original and absolutely scrumptious dishes of almost every variety. Satisfy even your oddest cravings with these unique eats of the Chip so your tank is never running on empty.

1. Gourmet Hot Dogs
The Dawg House

(Located at Bikini Beach)

While you may have gotten something of a hot dog fix at Woody’s Watering Hole (which has featured $1 dogs and $1 drafts since 1995), they don’t offer quite the same culinary experience as The Dawg House’s ¼ pound all-beef gourmet dogs adorned with literally all of the fixin’s. Cheddar cheese, chili, jalapeños, onions, peppers, and hot sauce only begin the list of options at your disposal. We’ll betcha after you try one at his Bikini Beach location, you’ll have nothing left to say but, “Hot Dawg!”

2. Bacon, Apple and Swiss Grilled Cheese
Mean Maggi’s

(Located in the Amphitheater)

Grilled cheese? B****, please! Mean Maggi’s ain’t your nana’s wimpy Wonder Bread grilled cheese sammy. They make it fresh and with enough flavor to fire your funky riding boots right off your feet.

Take their bacon, apple and swiss grilled cheese sandwich, for example. Sweet, savory, hot, cripy and melty with your choice of white, white, sourdough or gluten free, this sandwich doesn’t mess around. And neither should you. Check ‘em out and try it out or one of their other killer creations.

3. The Rush Cheesesteak Sandwich
Philly Ted’s Cheezsteaks

(CrossRoads and Amphitheater)

Philly Ted’s Cheezsteaks have been local legends in the Black Hills for quite some time, serving their mouthwateringly monstrous Cheesesteak sandwiches since 2001. They prepare them a variety of ways, from classic Philly style to piled high with all the fixin’s you could want.

One our favorites is The Rush, named after the Rapid City Rush hockey team. It’s a classic Cheesesteak with fried onions, ranch, & pepper jack cheese.

4. Bomb Ass Burritos
Bonafide Foods

(In the South 40, behind the Patriot Pavilion near the South Shower House)

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. Items you’ll definitely want to check out are the Bomb Ass Burritos, their fresh baked donuts, and fresh-squeezed juices and smoothies that will genuinely blow your mind.

5. The Donut Burger
Kimm-ee’s Fry Stand

(Located in the Amphitheater)

Defying the laws of tradition can create some interesting results, and the Donut Burger from Kimm-ee’s Fry Stand is no exception. The marriage of a savory beef patty, crispy bacon and melted cheese smashed between two glazed donuts will create a heavenly flavor explosion that will have you smitten from the first bite. Find them in the amphitheater and fall in love with food all over again.

6. Pulled Pork Parfait
Porky’s BBQ

(Located in the Amphitheater and NEW location in the CrossRoads)

Your eyes do not deceive you– this is a large cup overflowing with tender pulled pork, tangy barbecue sauce and fluffy mashed potatoes, swirled beautifully together into a blissful concoction of culinary delight. This is the pulled pork parfait from Porky’s BBQ, and it’s a monstrous meaty meal in a cup. Pick one of these up and stroll about the amphitheater and pig out while you rock out.

7. Santa Lucia Big Bite Breakfast Buffet
Santa Lucia Mediterranean Grill

(Located in the Amphitheater & CrossRoads)

Santa Lucia Mediterranean Grill offers lean meats and grilled vegetables served in fresh gyros for folks seeking healthier options. Add extra flavor with fresh-squeezed juices to take your gyro to the next level.

8. "Jacked Up" Gourmet Caramel Apple
Caramel Creations

(Located in the Amphitheater)

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

9. Heavy Metal Brew
Coffee Crib

(Located in the Amphitheater)

For some folks, hard rock music is the only stimulant they need. But for the rest of us who need a little kick every now and again, the Heavy Metal brew from the Coffee Crib is the perfect marriage of both. When you’re head banging to some great concerts this year, make sure you try some– it will rock your socks off! Located right next to Caramel Creations, the Coffee Crib brews delicious joe from the Sturgis Coffee Company and serves it up to you at a prime viewing distance of the Wolfman Jack Stage.

And if you’re into slightly more standard fare, don’t worry– the Chip features a ton of food vendors, serving all dishes of just about every variety that’ll please everyone from the most adventurous eaters all the way to guy or gal content with eating the same thing every day of their entire lives.

Keep an eye out and be sure to whet your appetite, whatever it may be, while you’re enjoying yourself at the Best Party Anywhere!
