The food was absolutely phenomenal. We started off with the 1/2 order of BBQ Nachos with burnt ends as our meat choice. We should not have ordered anything else because we were on the verge of being full after that. I got the pulled chicken sandwich with pit beans (bbq baked beans). My wife got the smoked meat salad with... More

Three of us had ribs, burnt ends and sausage, all had a deep smoke flavor and had been prepared very well in my book (novice smoker). The ribs had a heavy smoke on them and the burnt ends were tender and charred just right. The sausage was just that on my book, nothing too exciting. The pit beans everyone raves... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant in July and it was EXCELLENT and decided to return on this past Sunday night and I'm kind of sorry we did. We were promptly greeted, seated, drink orders taken, and the food arrived quickly. The problem was with the food. My baked beans were bitter and were just foul. I don't know... More

We have been to the lake several times and had not eaten here--glad we did! Husband had pulled pork and burnt ends--he loved the burnt ends! I had barbecue chicken which was very good but a little to wet for me. I also had the sausage and it was killer--just the right amount of bite. Pit beans are delish and... More

We visited Half Sauced on our second trip to Osage Beach. We picked it because of the great reviews, and it was good, but didn't really wow us. We tried the smoked sausage, pulled pork, smoked turkey, and beef brisket. The flavors were good, but not very smoky-tasting. It was nice that you could choose your own sauce to put... More

We decided to try this restaurant after looking at some of the other reviews. We're so glad we did! We started with wings that had just the right amount of heat. For the entrees, I ordered the smoked meat salad and chose the pulled pork from the list of possibilities. The salad was huge! The others in our party ordered... More

Highly recommend!! Friendly service, great food, great prices. Highly recommend the BBQ pork or brisket nachos. The half size is huge and only $6.45!! The waitress also offered us drinks to go which was a great bonus. A definite must eat place in the Ozarks!!!

After reading a few other reviews for this restaurant, we decided to try it out. We are SO glad we did! Our group had everything from the brisket, to the ribs, to the burnt tips, to the ham. EVERYTHING was prepared perfectly! I had the sample platter with the green beans and pit beans---get the PIT BEANS!!! Amazing! This was... More

We had the lunch special for $6.75 and did we ever get our money's worth. The sandwich was piled high with meat and also got a full side dish as well. You have 3 sauces to choose from. The BBQ was incredible and we recommended to several people while down here.

We stopped here for dinner one night after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed. We were immediately seated and asked about beverages. We had our little one with us and he was the center of attention for our server. The food was great as were the sauces including the extra spicy sauce. I would definitely recommend this to... More
