Fresh smoked wings, brisket and butts. We make everything from scratch including sides, sauces and salad dressings.  The Chute Roosters Restaurant is a Registered National Historic site of South Dakota.  What started as a lodge for the personnel of the Harney Peak Tin Mining Company in 1896, was converted to a barn after the last of the mining days of Hill City.  In 1971, Betty Matkins purchased the property and transformed the structure into a thriving restaurant that featured the best in dinning.  The Chute Roosters Restaurant and Lounge was “Dedicated to the Cowboy” and became the gathering locale for all people visiting and living in the hills.  The name “Chute Rooster” is a comical cowboy term to reference the rodeo wise-guy who sits on the chutes and knows how everything should be done…..and doesn’t mind telling about it!
