Good down home Ozark cooking

My family and i are going to have one day doing things on the strip.
like go carts and Mini-golf. I guess my next question is where would there be a place to go and have a sit down Branson family type dinner? where they bring you the fixings and your family can chow down. Not like a chain restaurant (Ruby tuesdays,fridays,BT Bones) I want good down home Ozark cooking.



Thanks in advance for all the great help. God Bless

NOt in Branson, but Lambert's would be just what you're looking for! Located about 30 miles north of Branson on Hwy 65, just south of Springfield. If you have the time, it would be well worth the drive. Great food, lots of choices, ample + portions, and reasonable pricing. Not a chain, not a buffet, but it IS all-you-can eat! They'll gladly bring you 2nds of anything, even the entree! The only downer to Lambert's is that it is SO popular, you usually have a LONG wait, unless you are there during non-prime meal time!

I ate at the farm house last time I was in Branson and The food was just so-so. I don't think it's what you are looking for.

Farmhouse, Clockers, The Shack (and Branson Cafe, I'd forgotten that one) are all in old downtown Branson.

I know you didn't want any "chains", but Cracker Barrel has good down home food, and it's usually fresh and good.

I like Peppercorn's on the strip. It is not a chain, I believe. I have always had a good meal there.

It's a buffet, but I think that Sadie's Sideboard has pretty good food.

If I were in search of really GOOD homecooked food, and a family fun atmosphere, I'd drive to Lamberts.

There are mixed reviews from Peppercorns, Sadies Sideboard, and some of the downtown cafe's - a couple of them have good reviews, but I don't know which, but I'd do some research here before I decided to take my family there to eat.

Thumbs up Branson Cafe

My family and I love Branson Cafe. The fried chicken is great. We really love their ranch dressing. Good place for a cheesebuger too.

I personally like The Shack best! I feel they have the best fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, cottage cheese, and iced tea. That is my meal EVERYTIME I get to go there. This is makin me miss home REALLY bad and I can't travel right now because my baby girl is due pretty much any day now. Guess I will have to travel a couple weeks after she is here, just to go to The Shack...hehe.

If you're going to be on the "strip" for the day, I'd try McFarlains. The food is delicious and they have a great menu to choose from. It is down-home cooking, I've never been disappointed.

Lambert's is really good but there is *always* a line and a pretty long wait (at least all the times I have been there). I do wish they wouldn't butter the rolls that they throw! Last winter I had a suede jacket on and it got slammed with a very buttered roll! Luckily, I knew to put corn meal on it and brush it out!
