My standard meal is pulled pork, if they have it. Theirs and the pork 'n beans side was perfect, and my wife's grilled chicken salad was a full meal too. Got out with tea and come for under $25, doesn't happen often these days.

As it says in my title, I tried to eat here with a Groupon at 1230 on a Saturday but was told by manager Lisa that groupons are not accepted before 4 pm and it has to be eat-in with 2 people. This was not specified(time restrictions) on the Groupon site, as the Groupon service representative verified. As for the... More

In the past, this place was a delicious must stop. In recent years it has slowly declined and fresh food has been replaced with frozen food. The service is usually very friendly, but the food just is not what it used to value which has decreased the value for your dollar.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants especially with the scenic drive from where we live in Joplin. We recently stopped by on our way back from Neosho for lunch. We hesitated, since on our last visit, it took us an hour and a half to get our meal on a Sunday. We watched our server sit down... More

Didn't think to call ahead, or we would have found they were only serving lunch during Jan, 11-3. Disappointed, but will try again another time.

We stop here every time we go home to visit my husband's family. It's such a unique place with a great atmosphere & good music. It's a small place, but the service is good. There is a memorial on the front yard to the Great Tipton Ford Motorcar Wreck in 1914.

The undercliff has very good food not very expensive either but they can get very busy at times they have minimal seating maybe 40 people and only 2 waitresses so it can be difficult to get service but they areally very Friendly.
