Relatively clean, adequate food, and lax service. But worst of all was the DIN. They have music playing so loud you cant tell what song it is, the sports TVs are on too, and everyone having to yell at the person sitting right next to them in order to be heard. And if that wasn't enough, the have a loud... More

I was in the mood for burger. A big burger. The kind that leaves juice running down your face with every bite. Eastbound met every objective! My Western Burger was cooked exactly as I requested with a generous side of included fries. Tots are also available, included with the burger. My wife had the house specialty salad. She finished it,... More

Great place to go out for a drink or with the family. Meet some friends here to have a few appetizers and drinks. The staff was attentive and easy going. Definitely will be coming back. Need to try the breakfast and the Bloody Mary's!

It is easy to see why Eastbound is King. Great Food, great prices good atmosphere and AWESOME staff. Everyone there tries to do a good job of taking care of you, but we are partial to Brooke who seems to go a bit above what is required of her. With a lot of menu choices and customization options, multiple trips... More

I love this place. I have known the owner and his family for many years. They have several restuarants in the county of SD, but this is my favorite. They have a lot of weekly specials of all kinds. The menu has many delicious burgers, tacos, salads, pizzas, fries, onion rings, sandwiches, and a miriad of drink specials, and on... More

This was the best breakfast I've had in a while. The staff was awesome and friendly. The prices are reasonable at first then you get your food and see you are getting a great deal. Two people could eat off one place. It's a lot of food.
