The Live Entertainment Capital World needs to be well fed. The many merchants, entertainers, and business owners in Branson understand that a happy customer is not a hungry one. That’s why you’ll never have to go far during your night on the town – or day on the lake – to find delicious food. Here are four unique restaurants in Branson that you absolutely must try while staying in the Ozarks.


Billy Bob’s Dairyland – 1901 W 76th Country Blvd – Branson, MO

It’s not uncommon to hear the words “best burger I’ve ever had” inside Billy Bob’s Dairyland. One reviewer warns that the double cheeseburger is so big that you’ll need a fork! This old school, traditional American diner is connected to a gas station like the best truck stop restaurants of yesteryear. It’s easy to miss Billy Bob’s while driving on the W 76, so keep your eyes peeled for the Shell station. Also keep in mind that Billy Bob’s only accepts cash.


The Keeter Center – 1 Opportunity Ave – Branson, MO

The Keeter Center is a unique restaurant in that it is completely run by college students. Enrollees at the College of the Ozarks can bypass their tuition by working in the restaurant, or the accompanying hotel that is also in the building. Diners shouldn’t worry about the quality of food, as The Keeter Center is routinely ranked as one of the best restaurants in the region. They pride themselves on creating “farm to fork” dishes that will leave your mouth watering.


Danna’s Bar-B-Que & Burger Shop – 963 St. Hwy 165 – Branson, MO

This is the spot that barbeque lovers won’t want to miss. You can indulge in a meaty mountain of deliciousness with the ever-popular Danna Burger. A beef patty is topped with pulled pork and Danna’s signature BBQ sauce, all in between two perfectly toasted buns. Don’t sleep on this local favorite.


White River Fish House – 5 Bass Pro Dr – Branson, MO

Someone has to reap the benefits from all the fishing in Branson. Let that be you and your family as you enjoy what many consider to be the best seafood in town. You’ll find everything from catfish to alligator nuggets at White River Fish House. The outdoor seating also offers a beautiful view of Lake Taneycomo and the surrounding area. Those who don’t prefer seafood will also find burgers, chicken, salads and other common entrees on the menu.
