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

You will never leave here hungry. The food is spectacular as is the service and atmosphere. The place may be small but that adds to the charm.

The HOMEMADE chicken fried steak is to die for. We loved it so much, we went back again the next day instead of trying get something else. It's... More

Small place and always full, this place is open only for lunch and dinner. Be prepared to wait unless you hit it just right....but wait...is well worth it if you are a breakfast fan. The blueberry pancakes are larger than your plate!

The wait isn't that long, once you are seated you become family. A great atmosphere for all ages. The amount of food is ridiculous. Unless you are starvin Marvin get the half order. Makes sure you have $, no cc accepted.

It has been a bit since I have been there but this place is the best place to eat breakfast while in Branson. Get there right when or after they open to get a seat without waiting. If there is a wait, it is worth it. The food is excellent and huge in portions. If you leave hungry then you... More

We drove out here on Dec 30th, because of there reviews (reviews as recent as Dec 29th). They are closed for business until February. Super disappointing as it looks so quaint.
