Authentic Chicago deep-dish from an authentic Chicago transplant! Hidden away but well worth seeking out.

Gettin' Basted (inside the Starlight Theater). While I much prefer City Butcher up in Springfield for amazing and authentic Central Texas-style barbecue (their moist brisket is as good as anything I've had in or near Austin), Gettin' Basted is quite good and probably one of my favorites in Branson itself. If you like barbecue, it's a great option.

BillyGail's out near Silver Dollar City is an institution, but it gets tremendously busy (and rightfully so), so plan accordingly. Cash only, too. For something quicker and closer to town (or the condo), Clockers in downtown is a reasonably cheap and decent standard breakfast place.

For a standard American cheeseburger and fries, you can't go wrong with Billy Bob's Dairyland, which feels like an old-fashioned malt shop (cash only). Simple but executed well with quality ingredients.

For barbecue, I prefer Gettin' Basted, but for the best burger in Branson, head to Danna's! I'm partial to the Mimi Burger, featuring Danna's mom's famous candied jalapeños. The line can look long, but it moves fast, and tables turn over quickly. (If BBQ's your thing, feel free to grab some here--it's perfectly fine; I just prefer Gettin' Basted or, even better, City Butcher up in Springfield.)

The nearby village of Hollister is home to Vintage Paris, a great, cozy second-wave coffee house serving third-wave-quality coffee. (Note they cater to the nearby College of the Ozarks crowd, so they aren't open early but stay open late.)

A special treat is a meal at Dobyns Dining Room at the Keeter Center, where College of the Ozarks Culinary Arts students serve up wonderful farm-to-table meals at very reasonable prices.

Branson has a surprisingly good Indian option in India Clay Oven. Standard American/Punjabi cuisine but executed reasonably well and certainly one of the more interesting ethnic options in Branson.

Vasken's Deli is one of my most frequent lunch spots for a quick but great meal. Their gyros are excellent, but I usually get the beef shawarma (my favorite). I've also had several other sandwiches and personal pizzas and all have been fantastic.

Baba's has very good (and very large) gyros and good burgers as well. Trust me, one gyro will fill you up!

For upscale (but moderately priced) Mexican semi-haute-cuisine (like what you might get at a decent restaurant in Mexico City), Botanas Premier Mexican is fantastic, especially if you order some of their more authentic dishes.

For Mexican street-food-inspired eats, Arandas Tacos is tops; their Tacos Al Pastor plate is excellent if you like (or have never tried) tacos al pastor. Fantastic salsas, too.

I'm addicted to Sugar Leaf's roast beef sandwich on salt and pepper bread, which is super juicy and moist and flavorful. Everything else on their menu is fantastic, too, especially the desserts they're famous for. You also can't go wrong with their peach iced tea.

You would absolutely never expect to find it in Branson, but some of the best sushi I've ever had is right on the Strip at Mitsu Neko Sushi (and I've been to Sushi Dai at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo and Morimoto in Philadelphia, plus I grew up in Alaska, so I'm very picky with my fish). It's not cheap, but they fly their fresh bigeye tuna in overnight from Hawaii and (in season) fresh salmon from Kodiak, Alaska as well, so it's worth the premium price. Several of the rolls are quite interesting and inventive as well; the Blue Flame was an experience, though I tend to stick to the standard nigiri sushi that highlights the quality of the fish. Tell Roman and Kate that Chris sent you!

In a strip mall on the Strip, Thai Thai is actually one of the better Thai restaurants I've been to (and I've eaten at more street stalls in Bangkok and Chiang Mai than you can shake an elephant trunk at, plus fantastic Thai in Seattle and—a surprising Mecca for Thai people—Fairbanks, Alaska). Well worth a stop if you enjoy Thai.

Sightseeing
A worthwhile stop even if you don't plan on going up! The scene gets even livelier at night, when the ferris wheel's LED light system (designed by one of the Haygood brothers) lights up for a spectacular show!

Needs no introduction! One of the best theme parks in the country, in my opinion. While it can't compare to the thrills of Cedar Point or other top coaster parks, the Ozark-frontier theme is exceptionally well done, with authentic items made by real trained craftsmen working just as they did 150 years ago and top-quality live musical entertainment. Christmas is a special time when the park gets decorated with over six million Christmas lights to celebrate the season!
