Best place in Springfield to eat BBQ. No joke. Love this place. No matter what location that you go to the food is excellent.

Small place but great ribs . They have a couple tables when you walk in or a whole dining room upstairs .they also have a drivethru. I got the 6 ribs , smoked potato and deep fried okra and soda for 18.60 cents . Not a bad price for all you get . I would say it's the best ribs... More

My friends had ribs and were quite happy with them. I had smoked turkey breast and was expecting actual meat off a real turkey...instead it was deli-style turkey slices that didn't taste smokey at all. Skip the turkey and stick with what they're good at...pork. Staff was very friendly.

When you are in Springfield at lunch or dinner time, you should try 1 of the best BBQ places in the area. It is a large place with lots of seating and parking. The pulled pork and brisket sandwiches are great. Prices are reasonable and the food is better than most of the other places in the city.

The restaurant requires you to walk up to a small order area, then push over to pay; very tight quarters. The staff tries to work fast, but difficult in the extremely small area between the counter and the tables. We ordred the brisket, but it was not tasty at all. The sweet potatoe fries were soggy and cold. The coleslaw... More

I had the bunt ends, cheesy corn and fried okra. The meat was tender and moist. The horseradish sauce was a hoot.

Three of us ate here, nothing was stand-out. The cheesy corn was cream-corn, the BBQ was dry and nearly tasteless. The brisket was fattier than other BBQ places we visited. Nothing to bring us back.

We tried the smoked turkey, chicken, brisket and ribs while we were here and the food did not disappoint, it was absolutely delicious and right across the street from Bass Pro. The staff are friendly and although it looks small they have a huge eating area upstairs.

Super greasy chips with the burnt ends queso. Couldn't even finish them. Beer was not cold. Second time to be here at the Ozark store and that was the last.

Favorite plate are the ribs & burnt ends, their wings are also a fav of mine, I usually ask for no sauce on them but that's just me. The smokehouse bake potato shouldn't be missed, man it's good, we visit the restaurant at Glenstone & Kearney
