A Badlands Barbecue

NEW in 2024 – Kids Hotdog Meals are FREE all summer long!

A one-of-a-kind experience, where we take 12 oz steaks, cooked to medium-well perfection, and give them a western-style fondue twist!

Witness our cowboy chefs expertly load New York Strip steaks onto pitchforks, then dunk them in barrels of oil. But that’s not all! Satisfy your cowboy cravings at the barbecue-style buffet with all your favorite fixin’s: baked beans, baked potatoes, garlic toast, coleslaw, vegetables, fresh fruit salad, brownies, cinnamon-sugar donuts, lemonade, and coffee.

Once you’ve grabbed your plate, settle down with your loved ones, and relish the moment with live music playing in the background. Take in the breathtaking view of the Badlands or engage in some fun-filled yard games with your family. Plus, head over to the Tjaden Terrace Bar for a refreshing beer or glass of wine to complete your perfect cowboy cookout.
