We saw the sign...we made a u-turn. One of the best decisions on this trip. Their breaded pork tenderloin sandwich is amazing! If they have strawberry rhubarb cobbler, give it a try. The coconut pie was very good. It had whipped cream instead of meringue....More

Jumped off of the highway for breakfast after leaving Branson early. Enjoyed the meal and service. Generous portions of well prepared food. The fried pork cutlet topped with sausage gravy was awesome. Grits, eggs, French toast, all good.

We were there on a Sunday when they have a buffet. Good home style cooking. Featured menu items include tenderloin sandwiches and dinners. Would eat there again.

Not quite sure how other restaurants can't learn from Smith's. They put a good product and handle lots of customers and a quick manner. I always enjoy going there for good down home cooking.
