The unique taste of this BBQ is well worth the trip to Half-Sauced. Their pit beans have a very smokey flavor--like nothing I've tasted!! Our waitress was as sweet as could be and was extremely friendly and very attentive to us! We will definitely go back....and our kids loved it too--bonus!!

I have dined numerous times at half-sauced. Always first rate. The brisket and the turkey are some of the best I've ever had. You will not be disappointed!

Since our Dinner Club from Harper Chapel United Methodist Church is all locals.....we know the very best spots to have a fun dinner meeting. The crew at Half Sauced Barbecue made sure eight of us had a table together and kept our drinks filled while we chatted it up before we enjoyed ribs, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, two kinds of... More

This is the only place my family goes for barbeque! It is the most delicious choice I at the Lake by far! The service is really good as well. Very friendly atmosphere. Try it, you will love it.

We tried this spot because we have a rule on vacation "can not eat anywhere we have back at home" The reviews said they had award winning wings so we figured why not. They wings weren't bad, wasn't a fan of the sauce but the meat without the sauce was very good. (i'm used to wings being franks red hot... More

If you visit the Lake of the Ozarks area...this is a must stop! Portions are huge and the prices are very reasonable. The BBQ chicken, pork, and sausage are outstanding.

As an experienced BBQuer, I know good BBQ. These folks know how to do it and how to plate it. We have tried all the BBQ places at the lake. There are a lot of good ones, but Half Sauced is the best. When you walk in, it even smells and feels like a BBQ joint.
