Disappointed! Lots of fat and skin In the pound of pulled pork I picked up up for dinner. With all the other bar-be-que places here, I will choose one of them next time. Too bad this was my first experience at the food truck location.

High prices, but food is excellent...And they carry Mexican coke... My wife and I try to make it there at least twice a month...

Decent food, but really very overpriced. If you can get the meat at a decent price then you're good, but watch for sales. I didn't believe the quality was much greater than other places.

Great staff, clean interior. Someone mentioned flies but there wasn't a place in Branson that didn't. They're just small and annoying but everywhere. Brisket was dry but everything else including the sides were great.

We arrived at 12:30 today and once again, theyre out of food. This marks the third time we’ve ran into this. It’s certainly good food, but this is really unacceptable. Every restaurant has to plan to keep it fresh, but not run out. It is...More
