I really don't like writing bad reviews but this one needs to be shared. Yesterday I stopped in for a pulled pork sandwich and a side of fries. It was about 12:30pm. I was told by the young lady behind the counter that, and I quote, "we are out of BBQ". So I asked about the chicken or the brisket.... More

Same restaurant, same setup, not the same food, at least not in my experience this time. The Ozark taters were definitely cooked different than in the past, they were coated in a oil like glaze with a puddle left int eh cup after eating them. They weren't as good as they used to be. The meat was about the same... More

Ordered the burnt ends dinner with beans. I got a good amount of meat but not what I would call burnt ends, but beefs cubes with just right amount of fat. Smoky but not too much, beans were fair made better with some bbq sauce. And a small piece of cornbread, soft and warm. $16 without a beverage, little on... More

I stopped in for lunch. I had the pulled pork sandwich platter. It comes with a choice of 2 sides. I had the Ozark fries and the baked beans. My sandwich was very good. The bun was soft and held the meat well. The pork was plentiful, moist and mildly flavored. I used some of their spicy sauce and pickled... More

Have worked very close to this restaurant for a few years... decided to try it last Friday for lunch. I had the 2 meat dinner, Burnt Ends and Brisket. The meat seemed microwaved and not fresh. Although there was a clear smell of smoke in the air, what I was given was clearly leftovers from earlier in the week or... More

Since the change in ownership, I'm sorry to say but the food is poor, the services is average and the price is too much for what you get. We used to go a couple times a month; there are better places.

This restaurant has been around since 1982, pass by it a lot, kept saying I will try it when I have time. I finally made time, and glad I did. The smoked meat is wonderful, the sauce is sweet and some spicy but not burn your mouth you are medium on fire. It is just a good BBQ place. They... More

This was our first visit to Ozark Smoke Meat and it was one of the best BBQ we have had in a while. Glad we decided to give it a try.

The brisket and burnt ends were good. The mild sauce is a good mix between sweet and spicy. The patio seating is a nice option. The staff is extremely helpful. The beans are a little spicy and mushy, otherwise the sides are typical of most BBQ places. The portions are huge.

I found this place because I heard their beef jerky is famous around Omaha. When I got there the guy in front of me had ordered 2 pounds of it! It was spicy and yummy as promised!! I decided to eat lunch and had the brisket dinner (get corn bread too) and it was so tender and the smoked flavor... More
