I make some pretty good smoked meats but when it comes to brisket, I won't waste my time. I'll go to Half-Sauced!! Not too impressed with their ribs or burnt ends. Good atmosphere, good quality and definitely affordable. Two people shared the combo platter and it was plenty. Personnel were also very friendly and nice. Worth the time.

The food is always good at Half Sauced. My son was visiting and he loves their burnt ends so took him there for his birthday. He said they were very good. My husband enjoyed his brisket also. I was a little disappointed in the potato/sausage soup. I usually get pulled pork and wish I would have ordered that. They were... More

I have been going to Lake of the Ozarks for 7 years and finally tried this restaurant. OMG it was so good. We told the waitress it was our first time and she suggested the sampler platter for two. It has brisket, pulled pork, burnt ends and ribs. You also get to choose two sides. I have not stopped talking... More

I've ate at them all, but for your money, this one is the best at the lake, hands down. I have smoked my pulled pork and never have gotten it anywhere near the quality as theirs.

Stopped in for dinner one night during our trip. Fast service, good prices, very tasty BBQ. Kid friendly! Our toddler loved it too!

We took our son and his family while down from the KC area. Everyone got something different: ribs, pulled pork, smoked ham, brisket and burnt ends. Ribs and pulled pork were thought good by our son and daughter-in-law. Burnt ends and brisket were dry, but the ham was quite good. I liked the baked beans (with a little sauce added... More

Half-Sauced is very close to our seasonal home. We had visited right after they opened, but were "underwhelmed." Since they'd survived for several years, we thought that perhaps our first impression was flawed, and they'd improved with experience. My husband ordered a combo platter with pulled pork and sausage. The sausage was excellent. Part of his pulled pork was also... More

This is a really good place to eat. We normally do lunch here right before we leave to go back home at the end of the weekend and it is never busy. It is a smaller place and if you blink you will miss it with the way the new roads are down there but if you do find it... More

If you have eaten at bandanas than that gives an u an idea of what to expect. Half says offer a wider variety of food. My wife shared a serving of burnt ends. Got it because I never had them and something not on bandanas menu On word comes to mind is awesome. They also provided a hefty portion that... More
