We took our son and his family while down from the KC area. Everyone got something different: ribs, pulled pork, smoked ham, brisket and burnt ends. Ribs and pulled pork were thought good by our son and daughter-in-law. Burnt ends and brisket were dry, but the ham was quite good. I liked the baked beans (with a little sauce added... More

Half-Sauced is very close to our seasonal home. We had visited right after they opened, but were "underwhelmed." Since they'd survived for several years, we thought that perhaps our first impression was flawed, and they'd improved with experience. My husband ordered a combo platter with pulled pork and sausage. The sausage was excellent. Part of his pulled pork was also... More

This is a really good place to eat. We normally do lunch here right before we leave to go back home at the end of the weekend and it is never busy. It is a smaller place and if you blink you will miss it with the way the new roads are down there but if you do find it... More

If you have eaten at bandanas than that gives an u an idea of what to expect. Half says offer a wider variety of food. My wife shared a serving of burnt ends. Got it because I never had them and something not on bandanas menu On word comes to mind is awesome. They also provided a hefty portion that... More

I'm an Half Sauced BBQ fan through and through! OMG!!! The food is always outstanding and the service isn't to bad either. If I could figure out a way to have their brisket and their pit beans sent to Louisiana on a weekly basis I'd be all over it! I've tried many things from their menu and I've ever been... More

This place was so good, we ate here every day of our vacation! Just couldn't get enough of those burnt ends, pulled pork and ribs! I was not fond of the baked beans but I may have just been full from all the meat. Portions are huge! You get plenty to share one meal. The service was wonderful! Very attentive.

Half Sauced Barbeque has a small but nice location. The food service was quick and friendly. I really enjoyed some of their drink options. They stock a Missouri made root beer and other local drinks. I definitely recommend those. The barbecue itself was average. If you like a smoky flavor, this is a great place for you. However, I found... More
