Vacations can often go by in a blur, as you rush from sightseeing attraction to show to nature explorations, filling every minute of every day with something fun, exciting, and new. You don’t want to miss a thing during your annual vacation, and sometimes you may find yourself skipping meals or eating the same unhealthy fast food meals that you eat at home. This doesn’t make for a healthy or memorable vacation experience, and we want to change that by sharing this list of the restaurants where the locals eat. Offering quick and delicious meals at prices that don’t break your budget, these spots are some of  Branson’s best restaurants!


Branson Café, 120 West Main Street

When visiting Missouri, you may find that some of the best meals you sample will take place in the small diners, cafes, and eateries that dot the main streets of town, and the Branson Café is the perfect example! Offering homestyle cooking like our grandmothers made served in an intimate and cozy space that feels like home, the country fried steak served here will change your life!


Pickin’ Porch Grill, 694 MO-165

The Pickin’ Porch Grill doesn’t do fancy, and that’s perfectly alright with us! Offering tasty barbecue in a barn type setting, the musical entertainment provided on Saturday nights helps that Bluegrass Burger go down smooth and easy! If you’re up for trying a Southern fave, the Fried Green Tomato BLT is more than a hearty meal; it’s a Branson experience that should not be missed.


Clockers Café, 103 South Commercial Street

You may have noticed Clockers mentioned in many of our other articles, and there’s a reason for that; Clockers has been a Branson tradition for over 34 years. Serving country favorites such as fried catfish, pulled pork sandwiches, and a host of delicious breakfast meals, you can always expect a smiling face from the staff at this local eating spot.


Getting’ Basted, 2845 West 76 Country Boulevard

The country atmosphere of one of our favorite barbecue restaurants creates an inviting vibe that makes you want to linger over your meal a little longer, while the food will have you coming back time and time again! Wood floors and corrugated tin wall hangings complement the award-winning barbecue dinners. If you’re really hungry, try the Blackout. Featuring a full pound of brisket, chicken, pulled pork, sausage, sauce, slaw, and pickles, if you manage to finish off this dish, you may never feel hungry again!
