5 Bar-B-Que Restaurants in Branson, MO
This week we explore our 5 favorite Branson BBQ restaurants suggested by local residents. Be sure to comment about your favorite below!

Doc’s Hickory Roadhouse
“Here at Doc’s Hickory Roadhouse, lessons of hard work and quality can be tasted in every bite. Our BBQ is slow smoked with real hickory wood. Doc believes taking the extra time and using real smoke provides guests the opportunity to enjoy a meal where quality and taste are the stars. The difference is in the details. Details like the fact that our sides are made from scratch right here in our own kitchen.”

Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que
“Our passion for BBQ is famous! We’re honored to be consistently chosen as America’s favorite BBQ restaurant. We also like heading out to competitions and putting our BBQ up against what the other elite pitmasters are cooking. To date, we’ve won more than 700 awards!
Ride through the scenic Ozarks. Climb to the top of the Mountain (aboard our Duck, of course). See and hear the history behind some of America’s unique military vehicles. Splash down and Cruise Table Rock Lake. Branson’s duck tour is the only splash down Branson attraction in the area. Take the wheel and drive the duck. Quack along with the captain and the music aboard this 70-minute Ozark adventure. Your entertaining captain mixes fun, music and history into an interactive Branson experience.”

Danna’s Bar-B-Que & Burgers
“Danna’s BBQ and Burgers Shops for a taste of local, old-fashioned BBQ cooking. Nothing fancy, just the freshest, best barbecue in the area – and plenty of it. Relax and enjoy our carefully prepared food made from scratch at three locations in Branson, Branson West and Kirbyville. Our restaurants are family run and owned, and we like to think that we extend a warm family welcome to our customers.

Every night, we smoke our beef and pork for 12 to 14 hours over locally smoked hickory wood. We smoke our ribs, chicken and sausage for four hours twice a day. All our meats are sourced from reputable vendors who meet our strict standards for fat content and tenderness, and they deliver to us several times a week to ensure freshness.
We make our own barbecue rub and barbecue sauces for chicken and ribs; when you visit us, you can buy some to try in your own cooking. Our burgers may not be perfectly round, because they are handmade from fresh (never frozen!) beef or turkey; we don’t start making your burger until you order it.”

RibCrib BBQ & Grill
Today Rib crib continues to serve amazing sauces, original rubs and mouth watering meats smoked the old- fashion way (on-site at every restaurant and served with the perfect smoke ring). At heart , though, we’re still all about the food and friendliness of your neighborhood “BBQ joint” and we believe you will find our staff as friendly – and our food as delicious -as when we started back in May of 1992.

Shorty Smalls
If you’re looking for the best BBQ, hamburgers, nachos, and chicken tenders in Branson, MO, you don’t have to look any further than Shorty Small’s!

We are proud to have set up shop in the beautiful city of Branson and add to the already rich history of sights, sounds, and flavors of the city. As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Missouri, we believe that this fine city was the best place to share our passion for food with both the Branson locals and the tourists that have decided to pay the city a visit.

Shorty Small’s in Branson, MO can be found along Country Boulevard. This makes it a convenient place for locals and tourists alike to grab a generous serving of classic Southern comfort foods, such as barbecue ribs and chicken fried steak, before or after watching a show in one of the many entertainment theaters in the area.
