We were didn't want to do national chains, and didn't want to go back downtown. Found BillyGails on Trip Advisor. Very interesting place, food was above average, and servers were very friendly. Just remember this is a cash only place, parking is limited, and nice drive from Branson for breakfast.

Fun little place off the beaten path. Country breakfast came out quick, hot and great. Very nice server. They have one rest room for the whole place, and the parking is somewhat limited. They do NOT take credit cards. Cash or check only.

The atmosphere is so cozy, very different, service was great, staff was very pleasant ,and the food was wonderful. You have to see their mammoth pancakes!!!!!!

Reviews don't lie! There is a long wait. But it is well worth it! The food is amazing if you like hearty, country breakfasts!! We got there at 845 am on a Saturday and waited about 45 min. The service was speedy! We were in our seats and ate in probably 30 min! When there is a wait they don't... More

Went here 5 years ago and remembered it was fantastic. Tried to come here this morning 9am and it was over an hour wait. Unfortunately fam and friends didn't want to wait. :( Always next visit. So note to self, don't oversleep if you don't want to wait 1+ hr for the best breakfast in town

Food amazing! Large portions you won't go away hungry. Coffee available while you wait. Excellent service. A must stop even if you have to wait. Parking is an issue.

Keeping with our desire to try to avoid chain restaurants while on vacation, we picked BillyGail's for lunch before hitting Silver Dollar City. Like the other reviewers have mentioned, parking was at a premium but we managed to find a couple of spots. The restaurant looked small from the outside but seated many more people than expected and was decorated... More

This is an out of the way local place, locally owned and mostly a breakfast place. They close at 2. The pancakes are huge! We had great service and a good meal. This will be a regular stop for us when we visit Branson!

Thank James B
