Restaurant recommendations and revues in the Branson Area
« on: March 18, 2019, 04:10:46 PM »
How about a new thread to highlight recommended Dining spots in the Branson SDC area.  I am often stumped to choose the next good spot to go and this might be a good place to get a new idea.

What are the best Italian spots in the Branson area.  We tried Reed Spring Pizza last year and it was very good.  It was a little bit of a drive from SDC but worth it.  I would recommend when you are ready for the drive.   It was not a big place so if you have a group you might want to call.  It was a little higher priced than a chain spots but the pizza was also much better, I myself dont mind paying for quality.  4.3/5

Reeds spring Pizza is my go to spot in the Branson Area. A little out of the way but the Pizza is incredible and they have a great rotating craft beer selection.

For Great Fine Dining we also like The Keeter Center at School Of The Ozarks. Only one problem is no alcohol or Wine available. Food is 5/5. Total is 3.75/5 because of no wine available with your dinner.

My favorites are Keeter Center, Branson Centre Stage, Cantina Lareda, and Jane Dough Subs.

We really enjoy breakfast at the Belgian Waffle and Pancake House. The place is very clean; the food is great; and the wait staff is very friendly. It is cash-only, but they have an ATM if you need it.

I really miss the old restaurant at the College of the Ozarks. Before the fine-dining Keeter Center, they had a family-dining type place that was fantastic. It was our favorite place to eat in the Branson area.

Reviews?:  OK..

Get'n Bast'd- BBQ/smoke food, Best in town, Hands down, None better !!

Little Hacienda om SOTH-  Dont bother, weak service, food is average at best, too $$$  !!

Casa Fuentas on STH-  DONT EVEN THINK about it!!!   LOL

Grand Country- good buffet all day long, good price.

Cheeky Monkey- on south 165- Bar and Grill, cold beer, friendly bunch of people- Excelllent puller pork sanwhich, Quesadilla is good also,  dont get the nachos..  This is a local BAR!!!  not really family friendly after 7 or 8 pm..  But daytime..!!  not problem..

Rocco's Pizza- north edge of town on 248.   Good stuff!!

Bucket List- little Bar in Branson Meadows, daily special, GOOD chicago style pizza, other bar foods..

Scooter's Bar and grill on Gretna- Dont bother, slow service, Beer too high..

Billy Gails on 265-  Breakfast is great- usually a waiting line..

Mr B's Ice Cream- old branson, just up the road from Dicks 5 & 10. Fresh ice Cream,  frito chile pie, sandwhiches, priced very fairly, nice place to stop in if your downtown shopping, or worth the specail drive..

Vaskens deli... Its ok, try it and see what you think.

McFarlans- good food, fair price, big portion, good service- just good "home cooked" food..

Been to lots of places in town... these just come to mind.,  I tried to NOT include franchise stores..

I also dont spend any time at The Landing, so anyplace down there in unknown to me.  Although I wont step in the door at Waxy-O-Sheas..  Tried it, wont go back.   LOL

Been to most of these places and I agree on most of them. Have not been to The Cheeky Monkey yet but  now I want to try it. My only disagreement is Grand Country. But I just do not do buffets. Also, Billy Gails. Tried it a couple times and both times I felt like I left a high school cafeteria. The Gravy was from a package and the Pancakes were to tough to cut with a fork. To me it is one of those places that get confused with quantity of food versus quality of food. I will give them this, they do give huge portions but it is not good.  To each his own.

Defiantly gettin Basted. I can taste that right now.

enjoy it... NOTHING bad on the menu,
tater salad is the best in town, I compare to mine.. its good!!
Fresh made on sight Pork Rinds,
If you have help, order "Nachos".  BIG portion and good...
Pulled pork sandich is good,
ribs fall off the bone good,
Amazing choice of sandwhiches.

! thought,  I ALWAYS order BBQ sauce on the side..  I like my smoked food with NO sauce,  Kind of like a good steak.... If cooked properly shouldnt need any sauce on it... ;D
