This was our first time to visit. Had to wait for a table, but most great places you do wait. It is well worth it. Huge over the plate pancakes, blueberry, peanut butter or plain. Jumbo French toast, biscuits and gravy, hash browns plus a whole lot more. Go there hunger, leave there satisfy.

Off the beatin' path. Rustic "back porch" decor. Prices very reasonable. Friendly staff. Watch out for those 12 inch plus pancakes. I was there for lunch which was great. This place for as old as the decor was extremely clean and we'll mantained.

This has become our go to breakfast place when visiting Branson. Lots of places here to get breakfast but Billy Gail's is our favorite. Love the sloppy biscuit or the campfire skillet.

Waitresses were nice and friendly. We all had salad which was very skimpy for the price. The fried chicken did not have much meat on it, all breading. Will not go back for lunch.

The review are many here but I just don't get it. Yes the food is decent but we waited for over 1 hour for a seat for what we thought would be excellent by reading the reviews. Don't get me wrong it was not bad but I would never wait an hour for it again. If you can get in... More

Parking is NOT good!! However, once you get a spot, you may have a long wait!! Yep, it's really that good !! Once you finally get seated, the waitresses are super friendly! Coffee cups are mismatched, which fits with the crazy building, I think it used to be a gas station!! Food is delicious, quickly served, large portions!!! Try the... More

Billy Gail's has received top reviews from 417 Magazine as the best place in the Ozarks for breakfast. The food is delicious and plentiful, the service always very good, and the prices reasonable. As a local, the only negative is that since receiving the honor from 417 there is usually a wait to get in - the positive is that... More
