This unassuming restaurant caters to the lunch crowd. They cook only so much food. When it sells out, they close up early. Which happens frequently. The demand for reasonably priced BBQ is only surpassed by the bbq aficionados who make this a regular stop in...More

The Brisket here is fantastic! in fact all of the meats are really good. But I'm not really a fan of their side dishes.

Disappointed! Lots of fat and skin In the pound of pulled pork I picked up up for dinner. With all the other bar-be-que places here, I will choose one of them next time. Too bad this was my first experience at the food truck location.

Decent food, but really very overpriced. If you can get the meat at a decent price then you're good, but watch for sales. I didn't believe the quality was much greater than other places.

Great staff, clean interior. Someone mentioned flies but there wasn't a place in Branson that didn't. They're just small and annoying but everywhere. Brisket was dry but everything else including the sides were great.

We arrived at 12:30 today and once again, theyre out of food. This marks the third time we’ve ran into this. It’s certainly good food, but this is really unacceptable. Every restaurant has to plan to keep it fresh, but not run out. It is...More
