Comfort Foods in Branson

If there's one thing you won’t find a shortage of in Branson, it's comfort food. After all, it's the heart of the Ozarks, where home-style food was practically invented. Looking for one of your favorites? Be sure to stop by:


Rocco's for Pizza

If you're hoping to get your hands on a pizza that tastes like it was made by an Italian grandmother, you'll love the pies served up by Rocco's Pizza. The family-owned pizzeria is known for its fresh ingredients, tasty dough and wide variety of plentiful toppings, as well as its affordable prices.

McFarlain's Family Restaurant for Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

If there's one thing that makes just about anything a comfort food, it's gravy, and even better if it's mashed potatoes and gravy. And when it comes to good, old-fashioned mashed potatoes and gravy, McFarlain's Family Restaurant, located inside Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex, does it right. The McFarlain's Special — mouthwatering pot roast served open-faced on white bread and mashed potatoes, both smothered in gravy — will give you the warm fuzzies every time.

Billy Bob's Dairyland for Grilled Cheese

Head over to Billy Bob's Dairyland on the famous Branson strip for the perfect grilled-cheese sandwich. It's not gooey or greasy and nothing fancy, just a classic hunk of American grilled up between two slices of sandwich bread. But everyone knows that's the perfect kind, right? Oh, and the burgers are worth trying, as well. Billy Bob's Dairyland was named one of America's 10 Most Delectable Burger Joints by Trip Advisor.
