We were really impressed with this neat little Grill under the cliff. The food was good and well priced. We ate outside so we didn't get to see the inside except through the windows. We will for sure return and eat inside next time.

Located in a remote area south of Joplin a few miles, it is unique. Built under the side of a cliff, it's a favorite hangout of locals. Very busy place on Friday and Saturday nights. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
