If you're on a road trip through Missouri on I44 and tired of the name brand fast food places that litter the expressways, try this gem of a bbq joint that cooks right on their premises. Tasty BBQ. Favorites are the chicken, pulled pork and ribs. Located right off of exit 163.

You can do worse, much worse. Food is solid. Nothing great, but not bad either. Fried Potato is a great option if looking for something different from the typical French fries.

My mom, grandma & I stopped here on our way home to IL from Branson, MO. We needed gas and this place was just down the street. I was disappointed in the quality of the food.

Always have it when I visit. Always consistent quality. I favor the chicken no sauce. Beef is tender and juicy.

As always the service is quick and efficient. My favorite is a pulled pork sandwich with the potato slices. I watched this family build this building and then expand it. Check out the coins in the flooring!

We had dinner here on family day for my son's basic training graduation. We had honestly just eaten a few hours before at the 50s diner so no one was terribly hungry except my husband who arrived later than the rest of us. This is a sit down place, however, you place your order at the counter when you walk... More

This is a wonderful place to eat after visiting the Uranus General Store in Uranus MO. The food is excellent, fresh and plentiful for the price. The restaurant is clean and the staff friendly . The music sound track is worth the visit alone.

Thank clove224
