Good little restaurant (above average). Ended up here my accident, but turned out great. Very good burgers and solid onion rings. Would come back.

We stopped in while in the area due to some flight training. I had a caesar salad with some salmon added. It was a good size portion and was made with good fresh lettuce. The clam chowder was hot and tasty as well. The other folks I was with enjoyed their meal as well. The service was good with minimal wait. My meal was about $15 without tax or tip. This was one of 3 places the folks out at the airport recommended.

I absolutely had the best experience here! I had the best server Jordan who was kind, friendly and efficient! I wasn't that hungry so I ordered the best oriental salad! It was delicious and then got a chocolate raspberry cheesecake to go! Amazing! I can't say enough about the outstanding food and service here! It was an unexpected surprise and I recommend the Bugling Bull to anyone in the Custer area! I loved it!!!

Walked to dinner, from our motel down the street, arrived and a waiting line at the door was about 15 minutes. got seated then attempted to order drinks. Waiter came over and asked if we were ready to order dinner.We said we do not have menus and would like to order drinks first. He seemed annoyed but took our drink order and disappeared, came back to our area about 10 minutes later and said our drinks,(which was all beers) was coming. We waited another 10 minutes,no beers, I got up walked into the bar, in the adjacent room and asked another waitress if we could get some drinks in the next room.Explaining the circumstances she apologized and said she would see what was going on. After another 10 minute delay , we simply got up and walked out

Hello, it is disheartening to learn about the service that was provided to you during your visit. All staff members are trained to be as professional, efficient, and welcoming as possible, and greatly apologize that it did not come across that way to you. Customer service that is not provided to its full potential is unacceptable and will be addressed immediately, so it would mean a lot to us if you could email us at info@buglinbull.com and let us know the date and time that this occurred. I would like to assure you that this is certainly an isolated occurrence, and not a representation of how we normally operate as a business. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again as we would love to restore your confidence in us!
