Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

Food was good. Brisket was very tasty. Fish was a little "fresh" in taste. Had the burnt ends and they were great, just would've expected a little larger portion for $11.

Our group of 8 were well served and all had delicious meals. Here in Branson, though, parking lot was crazy.

Food was great. BBQ/rib joint atmosphere. Service was excellent. Portions generous. A little pricey for this kind of establishment. No parking near the restaurant. In the middle of a shopping village. Probably at least .5 mile from parking lot.

The food selection was quite good, so were the sauces provided on the tables. The food itself in the other hand was quite bland, although a little tender. The side dishes were fine. Went there bc our friend was craving bbq and we saw good reviews. My sister ended up with hair in her mashed potatoes; the incident was dealt with accordingly with the manager so that's a relief. But I probs wouldn't return bc of the bland meat.

The food was perfect!! However it was very hot in that little room. It was almost as hot as being outside. Our waitress was not very friendly and a little slow on service. I would still recommend for the food!!

Only issue we had is that our waitress had an emergency and then we were forgotten about waited an hour after ordering for our food and my dad didn’t get his chili that he ordered. But when we got our food it was great.

Absolutely loved this place! We were visiting the area from Oklahoma and definitely will have to eat here when we go back to Branson. Roberto was our waiter and he was great, very nice, knew what he was doing, he was quick. The sauces that they have at the table are the best! Everything about this place is just great. I definitely recommend!

The family meal for 4-6 was way more than the four of us ate, delicious, and great variety. We’ll do that again!

This is a poor excuse for BBQ. Especially to be competing with all of the local and flavorful BBQ available in the Arkansas/Missouri area.

The food quality and service has declined from our last visit. The food used to be so fresh and hot, sadly today the food was just okay, definitely nothing to brag about. We had a table of 9 and 4 of the meals came out several minutes before the others. My baked potato was cold when delivered. Sad to say we probably won't be back anytime soon.

I have responded with feedback to the restaurant but don't feel that the feedback should be shared with the public web site. I just want to be constructive by providing feedback to the restaurant manager.
Thanks!

The front of the restaurant was empty and they seated our family of 5 in the back where it was packed.

Apparently, either a current or former employee was at the restaurant and the other employees keep stopping by causing a distraction constantly. Along with the fact that the table was full of young guys being loud and Slapping each other on the back!

Management should have stepped in and took control of the situation.

We stopped here for a quick dinner. We were seated right away. the service was quick and he was very personable. Food was good. We lucked up and were there when they had a platter of assorted food for 2. We had enough left over for lunch the next day for both of us!
