Good BBQ

Reminded of me of a diner in every city. However, the food was amazing. I loved the nachos with brisket. My wife and I went to Lake of the Ozarks for our honeymoon and went here after we saw it in a restaurant guide. The food was delicious and I was not dissappointed. The service was good as well.

We happened across them the first few weeks they were open - now that was years ago. We make a definite point of going there at least once every time we are at the Lake. Very good barbeque and very friendly staff.

This BBQ restaurant is another great one here at the Lake of the Ozarks! Smaller than most places, but the staff and the food are really good. They usually have coupons for the lunch time which makes it a GREAT place for us!

A nice little place in Osage Beach to get a good barbeque (even without the sauce on it). Their pulled pork is the best around...and the pork steak special is always a hit. A friendly atmosphere, delicious food, and good prices.

The food was great and the wait staff was nice. The sides are all pretty good, especially the beans. Get the brisket! The nacho appetizer was great with pulled pork!

Got the sampler for lunch. Pulled pork was a bit dry and didn't have much taste. The ribs were great and fell right off the bone. The brisket was amazing! Honestly the best brisket I've ever had. Throw a little sweet BBQ sauce on it and you're good to go.

In town for a wedding, needed a great dinner, Half Sauced didn't disappoint (except that they'd sold out of smoked wings...)! We split the sampler platter, which was more than enough of their wonderful smoked meats. The staff was friendly, we were seated immediately, and never had empty glasses. Highly recommend!

This is literally the best BBQ I've ever had anywhere I've traveled. There is a reason the place is filled with trophies and ribbons from all of the competitions they have won. Wow. The extra hot sauce that is offered was my favorite and was filled with flavor but still slightly spicy. The quality of the pulled pork itself was... More

i can't say our food wasn't good, but it just didn't stand out...typical BarBQ. I'm sorry to say we probably won't return.
