WOW ! — Fantastic food and very nice people. Located on Downing Street in an old English Tudor designed street. Ambience adds to the food. I started with Jambalaya, which was the best I have eaten in years. The jambalaya was so delicious, I ordered...More

We had out of town guests who wanted lunch at Dobyn's Café in the Keeter Center, but the 90 minute wait put us all off. So we decided to give Grandma's Gumbo in Downtown Hollister a try. Good choice. NO wait. Clean, cozy little restaurant...More

As natives of Louisiana who now live in the Midwest, we rarely find authentic Cajun food in restaurants in this area. That is not the case with Grandma's Goodies & Gumbo. We walked in & were greeted by Mr. Terry, who is from South Louisiana....More

Terry and his wife are the best and the food is great. Hollister is a very small nice town for visitors and grandmas in a Cajun paradise.

Best restaurant in town! Right on the edge of Branson away from all the traffic of the town. Warm and cozy restaurant where you walk in feeling like family, and leave knowing you are. Go check them out, you'll be happy you did!

Description
Hello Everyone! Grandma's Goodies & Gumbo has a BIG announcement to make. We will be TEMPORARILY closed for BIG changes! We will be closed to go to War Eagle Fair this week but when we come back we will be packing up the restaurant for a BIGGER and BRIGHTER FUTURE! We are not, I repeat NOT, closing up for good. This is only temporary!! For the next 2 months or so, we will be working with our new landlord on completely remodeling our NEW restaurant just 4 doors down at 8 Downing St. Right beside Little Hacienda. We're very excited about our new adventure and can't wait to see you there. This is where Louisiana and Iowa collide in a warm friendly atmosphere. We serve Cajun dishes including 3 types of Gumbo. Jambalaya, Red Beans n Rice, Smoked Sausage Po-Boy, Boudin, Ham n Beans, Chili, to Desserts and a large variety of home made candies such as many flavors of Fudge, Peanut Clusters and our very popular Peanut Brittle, including some reduced sugar Fudge and Peanut Brittle.
