This is an out of the way local place, locally owned and mostly a breakfast place. They close at 2. The pancakes are huge! We had great service and a good meal. This will be a regular stop for us when we visit Branson!

We had a party of 12 on a Sunday morning, so we were expecting a wait no matter where we went. It was about an hour, but once inside all went very fast. Giant (really) pancakes for the kids were a huge hit and everyone liked what they ordered. Come hungry and go home full... There is only one bathroom... More

My wife had a wonderful omelet and I had a pancake. Their pancakes are huge and very tasty. We will be back! Very busy but, we were lucky and got right in.

This place is a must-eat location in Branson - don't miss it! The setting is great, decorations kinda eclectic country, the staff is friendly, and the food is simply fantastic. We had the chili-cheese omelette w hash browns and toast, and our kids had their ginormous, bigger-than-the-plate pancakes. Everyone left very satisfied w happy tummies. Our slowest eating child even... More

Very unique place. Great breakfast. Homemade cooking. Don't count calories here. Get it smothered in homemade gravy. Wait staff is great. Plenty of great old toys for the kiddos to play with while you wait. Way off the beaten path, parking is terrible, wait is long. But all of that is completely worth it when you get seated and enjoy... More

The portions are large enough we skipped lunch for the day. Get here early or parking will be tough and the wait may be over 45 minutes. Very good breakfast for a long day at SDC.

It's a small place so be ready to wait. Very busy most of the time and there is very little parking in a gravel driveway. The food was good if you're not too busy we would return.

BillyGail's is a one of a kind breakfast spot with huge pancakes and perfect omelets and hash browns. Don't miss out on trying a pancake - it's their specialty! Decor is cozy, cabin style and the servers were excellent. It's easy to see why so many customers wait to eat here. Be prepared to wait an hour in a crowded... More

Had to wait an hour for a table. Staff was friendly. Food was good and reasonably priced. Ordered the pancakes- they are huge, but not as tasty as I had hoped. Biggest downfall was the lack of parking.
