Not crowded on a Saturday night. Been here before several times and never disappointed. They serve a 1 1/2 pound BBQ pork steak that is to die for! Beef brisket is good too. Their oil and vinegar based cole slaw is also very good, but they were out of it when we were there. Too bad! In my opinion this... More

Ordered the picnic pack with brisket. Plenty of food for four people and very reasonably priced. Very family friendly too.

We keep going back for ribs and burnt ends, we like local, but bandanas food is better although service is hit or miss also.

Being a local and I have tried most of the bbq places in town this is my go to place!! The best pulled pork, brisket, burnt ends, chicken and sausage!! The service it good, they have a drive thru too. I use the drive thru after a long day. The creamy coleslaw is fantastic, so is the other sides.

As soon as we sat down asked if we wanted a drink - didn't give us time to look at the menu. Waitress came back in a minute and asked again. Food arrived at lightening speed with a cold temperature. Still eating and asked if we wanted peach cobbler. Pulled pork had no flavor, sausage decent and beans too smokey.... More

We had lunch here based on a friend's recommendation. She said to get the burnt ends, so I got the burnt ends sandwich. I thought it was pretty good. Some of the meat was tough, but overall I thought it was good. The smoked bbq beans were super yummy. We wanted the creamy cole slaw, but they were out, which... More

We ate there this evening and it was excellent. We had the combo platter which we shared. Ribs, pulled pork, brisket and burnt ends. My favorite was the brisket followed closely by the pulled pork. The baby back ribs were good but not as good as mine. The service was excellent as was the atmosphere. I will definately go back..

I went here with a group of 10, 3 being kids. Food was just okay and while our waitress was nice, nothing exceptional. The restaurant was small and not full for a Saturday afternoon (imo) but they still seated everyone right around us. They didn't seem concerned about telling us what's best or making an impression since we were obviously... More

This place is not that easy to find but well worth it. The service was great and relatively fast. The BBQ was excellent - moist, not over cooked, good flavor. I had the combination plate with pulled pork, burnt tips, ribs, and brisket. They suggested 2 could share and that is true but I took enough back to the resort... More

Half Sauced was great for a quick lunch before we left the lake. Typical BBQ fare with with hearty sides, in a timely manner. The food was tasty, was served fast, and at a very reasonable price (especially for Lake of the Ozarks). Will definitely return!
