Family dining at various stops

Our road trip has many stops, including....Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, Vegas, Sedona, St Louis. We have 5 kids. We like going out to eat and most of us eat a wide variety of things. We're not into fancy, but we like good food. I'm particularly interested in eating at regional places with regional food. I'd also be interested in anyplace that might be fun or have a fun atmosphere, good view, etc. I just want to be sure we don't fall into eating at national chains because I want the kids to experience more local places/things.

If it helps...kids are 14, 13, 11, 4 and 4.

Any suggestions?

the 10000 sivler dollar saloon is great if your any where near it
they have a great and cheap gift shop and the hotel is very reasonable if you need to spend the night

This is one of our favorite places in Sedona - we always have at least one meal there.


The Cowboy Club is fun too - it was on $40 a Day with Rachel Ray.


Sounds like it will be a fantastic trip!

When traveling around the West coast we happened upon Black Bear Diner. It was wonderful comfort food and we now seek them out when we are traveling. I always look for an In N Out too. I love their burgers but the rest of the family does not. They look for a Chik Fil A

Alpine Inn at Hill City is awesome.

I read about the Alpine Inn here on the Dis boards when planning our trip last year & we tried it. Loved it so much we ate there 2 nights in a row while in the Mt. Rushmore area.

There are only 2 item on the menu. The large or small steak. Served w/ a wedge salad, bread & baked potato. We loved it!

And the dessert menu...wow!! We tried a different dessert each on both nights & they were awesome!!
