Participate in National Grilling Month!
July is not only a month where we celebrate America’s independence, the hot sun beaming on your skin, and refreshing dips in a pool or lake. July is also the time to celebrate National Grilling Month! There’s nothing better than cranking up the grill, throwing some fresh veggies and burgers on the grate, and being surrounded by the aroma of delicious food and close friends. But how do you still fulfill your grilling traditions if you’re traveling? We want to ensure that guests of our hotel and visitors of Rapid City alike don’t feel left out, so we’ve compiled a list of restaurants that will help to satisfy your grilling and BBQ cravings.
Local Hot Spot
Located in the midst of downtown Rapid City, Firehouse Brewery is the perfect place to relax on the deck and feel like a local. Open since 1991, Firehouse Brewery is located in Rapid City’s first fire hall and still contains the original fire poles and ladders in the building. After you’ve ordered a drink, we recommend directing your eyes toward the “Fire Pit BBQ” section of the menu. We can’t promise that you’ll be able to make a quick decision, but we can promise that whatever you choose will be tasty! From baby back ribs and beef brisket to smoked pork and sausage links, Firehouse Brewery is sure to satisfy your cravings. Be sure to finish off your meal with the cast iron s’mores that will make you feel like you’re sitting by a campfire on a cool summer night!
Smokin’ Hot Food Truck
If you’re looking for a little adventure, checkout the Facebook page of Smokin’ Hot Catering to see where their food truck is parked around the city. A local favorite, Smokin’ Hot has just the right amount of options to choose from. Offering classic smoked staple dishes, Smokin’ Hot also offers unique culinary creations, such as BBQ and veggie nachos. Loaded with two smoked meats, or seasoned black beans, coleslaw, and topped with red and white custom BBQ sauce, your taste buds will thank you for choosing this delightful meal. If you loved your meal so much that you want to go back, we won’t stop you! Smokin’ Hot is consistently changing menu items to offer a variety of dishes to all dining guests.
If you’re on the road traveling for a long stint of time, it can be nice to enjoy familiar cuisines. Luckily, Rapid City has Famous Dave’s BBQ and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. Both located a quick drive from Comfort Suites, they allow you to indulge in juicy, legendary burgers, meat combo plates, beef brisket sandwiches, and classic sides such as mac ‘n’ cheese, baked beans, and baked potato casserole.
After you’ve had your fill of grilled and barbequed goodies, head back to your hotel room to rest on your pillow top mattress while watching a movie and enjoying all the comforts of home at Comfort Suites Hotel & Convention Center.
