“Nailed It!!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Tucked away on West Main Street, just above an awesome little five & dime store, lies a true gem...and if you blink or turn your head as your travel down the street towards the landing, you may have lost it without evening knowing what you passed up.

As soon as you enter the door to Main Street Alley, you know right away you have happened upon a few fellows who take pride in their craft and just know good food. A nice overhead menu sways in black board style with neon colors to give it some flair. The aroma of their subtle seasoning binding to their freshly made chips finds its way to tease your taste buds, and before you have even had a chance to really take in the menu, your mouth is watering for what will be a perfect burger experience.

The staff is knowledgeable about their menu and their product, which should be a given, but apparently around Branson, this is not the case. So thumbs up for that Jimmy!

The place was a little slow, and there isn't much room to sit & eat, but that's the point. Get in, get your food, and get out and enjoy the rest of what The Landing has to offer. There are little trinkets and some well placed souvenirs to take home, along with a fantastic variety of local jellies and rubs.

On to the food though, you will find that regardless of your appetite, Main Street Alley aims to satisfy in portion and taste. My wife ordered a Chicken Wrap, the chicken was tender and juicy, and the taste was something you rarely find in a wrap. I, in my obsession with burgers, failed to take a picture of it, but it was neatly placed in a basket accompanied by their signature chips.

Now the main event...the Black Angus Bacon Cheeseburger. You guys NAILED IT!!! This IS how a burger is done. A perfectly toasted bun that lie beneath a well seasoned patty, layered with a couple of slices of American Cheese (my choice), lettuce, tomato, pickles, and red onion. There is the option to double this bad boy up, but I don't see that to be necessary as one patty will do ya just fine.

Thanks for a great burger and excellent service. Best of luck to you guys, and we will be back to visit every time we return to Branson.

Fantastic food. Relaxing and great employees. This place is so simple, they get it all perfectly right. What a cheese burger and the fries are pretty tasty.
Will return for another one.

“Don't get fast food, get GREAT FOOD FAST!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Located near the bottom of Branson's long famous "Hamburger Hill" (W Main St, East of Hwy 65) this hole-in-the-wall café has excellent tasting freshly made food, and service so fast you'll swear you just ordered at Jimmy Johns. I've eaten at many a Branson restaurant in my 25 year tenure as a Branson resident, and few have come close to matching the delicious taste of these burgers (be sure to get bacon and cheese). I'm not a big fan of chips and typically opt for freedom fries at most establishments, but a friend of mine suggested I get the fresh made chips served at the Alley, and boy am I glad I did! Did I mention that these guys deliver within the downtown area? All of this and you'll still have plenty of money in your pocket after eating here. This is by far the best tasting, best priced food I've had in a long time and I would highly recommend checking them out. Parking located in front and behind the place so there's just no excuse not to get out there and try Main Street Alley.

“Great food Great service Great price”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

The food and the service here is second to none. Everything our group ate here was homemade and delicious. The staff here was very friendly accommodating to our needs. If your looking for a nice meal in downtown Branson this is the place to go. The outside patio is a great place to enjoy your meal. It is also located by a free parking lot in downtown Branson.
