Food is way OVERPRICED and not that good, plus it gave me the runs. The waitress was fighting with the cook and rude to other customers. Flies were everywhere.To call this place BAD is an understatement it was TERRIBLE. Please don't make the same mistake as I did. Go elsewhere, your wife, kids, wallet, self respect and colon will thank... More

We had beef brisket and BBQ on a wonderful bun. The kids had chicken strips and hand-cut homemade fries. The potato salad was wonderful! Service was great and we all left full. It was a bit pricey, but it seemed like everything in Keystone was overpriced. For 2 kids and 1 adult meal, it was $55, not including tip.

Hubby and I stopped at Red's because it said "cold beer" and it was the first eating/drinking establishment in Keystone by the way we traveled. The place is very small and they do specialize in chicken and ribs. Prices seemed a little high and since it was lunch we each had a burger. We had the buffalo burger, and being... More

We had a chicken dinner at Reds. We usually do a little research, but made a cold call in this case.. It is down the road from Mount Rushmore. The place could use a little cleaning, but I can recommend the Chicken highly. Food was good and the experience was pleasant.

Red's Chicken House and BBQ, Keystone, SD is some of the best Texas Tasted B-B-Que. Red is quite a character and does have a really great little place for B-B-Q. Closest food faire to the famous Mount Rushmore!. Stop by, you won't forget it.

We're here in Keystone while we're visiting Mount Rushmore. We wanted to have something out of the ordinary and local. So we stumbled upon this place. We ordered their Bomb sandwich and Ribs. We liked our spicy brisket sandwich and the ribs. Although it didn't look like brisket as we're used to in Texas but we did enjoy it. Overall... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
