Locals favorite spot

It's home cooking. With a large variety and daily specials. This place is a little building that doesn't look like much but the food is decent. The place is clean. And the staff and others in the restaurant are friendly. The locals hang here a lot at breakfast and lunch.

We discovered the Ozark Cafe during a visit to West Plains and found two of the best meals we had in town! Ozark Cafe does breakfast all day so if you adore waffles and pancakes and enormous cinnamon buns, this is your family run diner! The lunch entrees looked great. I chose the salmon which was very good but had... More

What can I say? Everything about this place is top notch. Clean, fast, friendly, great food, and a great staff. They are #2 in West Plains for a reason. I always stop by here when in town.

I have eaten here on and off for the last two years, and have never been disappointed! I have always gotten great service, and my food has always been correct. Also, the food has always been cheaper than we thought it was going to be. Love eating here!

The rolls were homemade, the food was fresh, and the service was friendly. I highly recommend! I came with a friend and she enjoyed it too.

I love it because I like how they prepare food with seasoning and American Down home style cooking. One of my favorite places. Always full.

A simple down to earth setting awaits you at the Ozark Cafe. You will always find home cooked food on their menu awaiting you for lunch or dinner: fried chicken, country ham, brown beans, fried catfish, pork chops, etc. In the early mornings you will find the local farmers or retirees having their coffee, homemade cinnamon rolls or biscuits and...

A great family restaurant! Simple, happy atmosphere with great service! Very clean! Great variety including breakfast all day, burgers, fish, subs, clubs, roast, chicken, pizza and so on! Homemade desserts that are worth saving room for! Somewhat inconvenient location, but the restaurant is worth the trip!

Ozark Café is the "go-to" place in the West Plains area for good, old-fashioned comfort food. Whether it's fried catfish, homemade pie, or the famous loaded biscuits and gravy, this mom & pop restaurant does not disappoint.

Have only eaten dinner there a couple of times but everything we have ever ordered has been very good. Reminds you of old time cafes with moms cooking. staff is always very friendly and easy on the eyes as well. Have had breakfast several times and has always been very very good, I promise you will not leave hungry.
