The city of Waynesville is located deep in the Ozark Mountains along a scenic stretch of historic Route 66. The highway brings in a lot of people for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The appealing dining options are sure to bring many of them back for more. Most of the restaurants in town are family-friendly establishments, but there are also trendy pubs and wine bars for adults-only outings. Homemade chicken salad, hand-formed burgers, and perfectly grilled paninis get the thumbs-up from locals and tourists alike. If you're feeling adventurous, try German-fusion dishes like salmon brats or Thai classics like coconut curry soup.
