“Great Pulled Pork”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Great place for lunch when waiting for your flight out of Branson Airport. Just get there early enough to clear TSA screening, since it is on the gate side of the airport security. Good service and food. Very handy for the travler and they do to go orders.

“Amazingly good for this little airport”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

It's a fairly limited menu compared to the 'real' Famous Dave's, but still very good food at a reasonable price, considering it's in an airport. Nice bar, excellent beer selection and the servers are always nice. Great way to wait for your flight as you don't even need to leave your bar stool until your flight is called.

“First trip to Famous Dave's”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I had heard of this chain restaurant, but never dined there.
While walking around the beautiful Branson Landing shopping area we spotted this and decided to give it a try.
Coming from Kansas City we are used to great barbeque so it can be hard to impress us with a different type of barbeque
We found this very casual family restaurant a comfortable place to dine. The surprise was the wonderful beef brisket! Although the cole slaw and beans failed to impress me, the brisket was just delicious. The service was great and prices are good.

“Watch the bartenders if they make you a drink!! GROSS!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I was at the Branson Airport flying back to Midway - Chicago on 10/20/2013 at around 3 p.m. to have a cocktail before the flight..
Took a seat at the end of the bar and ordered a Grey Goose and Tonic, great pour, great drink from the lady bartender. While enjoying my drink, the young dark haired male bartender/waiter came behind the bar, right in my line of vision. He has a very large margarita glass and is making a 2nd drink for a lady customer sitting at a table. He takes the dirty glass and uses his fingers and wipes away the left over salt from the rim, and shakes it to the floor! Then takes that same glass and dips the rim in the sponge to wet it and then into the salt for the 2nd drink!!!!!!!!!!! Are you KIDDING me!!! I could not find the manager to inform him of this horrific event I just witnessed. I feel bad that I allowed the girl to drink her drink. I did not eat the food there, but heard many complaints about the service and even watched the dessert be served before the meals. Customers were not happy.

“you won't find better airport food”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Well, this place kind of has a monopoly on the food business in the Branson airport but doesn't disappoint. I had the pulled pork sandwich Memphis style (with cole slaw on it). It was HUGE and messy and tasty! Potato salad was also good. Great TV's behind the bar. Lots of drink options if you feel like drinking (I didn't but the tea was good). Side note: You are gonna love this airport. It's like a Bass Pro Shops inside there. Really, really cool airport and small so nothing takes a long time.
