Steak and Eggs... The best part of this is you are treated as family. “Homey” is the best word to describe Billy Gail’s Café, a former gas station and log cabin that was transformed about 20 years ago into the most beloved breakfast spot in the heavily touristic Branson region. But while most of the Branson restaurants, attractions and live entertainment are on bustling Route 76, Billy Gail’s is just a bit hidden on smaller Route 265. It sits less than half a mile off the main drag — just far enough so that if you didn’t know it was there you would never find it. But all the locals find it, and it is annually voted Best Breakfast in the region. It is rustic enough to lack its own website, but consistently earns four-plus stars from Yelp and TripAdvisor with mostly glowing reviews — and tons of votes, more than a thousand on TripAdvisor alone

Arrive early, because you're going to have to wait. The food is pretty good and well priced and the size of the pancakes made my kids eyes bug out. If you like a good, homecooked breakfast, it's a hidden gem that you should probably check out.

Though it's a bit of a drive, Billy Gail's is a very popular place to go have breakfast. Huge pancakes and biscuits. VERY busy. You can expect to wait to be seated on most days!

Local from Branson

Best breakfast in town and so worth the wait! This tiny breakfast eatery opens early and closes early, so get there fast and expect a long wait. It's very popular with locals and tourists alike, and once you are finally seated and get your plate of hub-cap sized pancakes, you'll be happy you were patient! Lovely staff, and owner Billy Gail is just a delight!

Humongous pancakes! They're as big as the plate! Approximately 10-15 minutes from the cabin!

Great breakfast at reasonable prices. Pancakes that are bigger than the plate. Biscuits N gravy that's really home made and plenty to fill you. Lot's more to choose from. Popular sight for locals as well as repeat Branson guest. Opens at 7:00 am but expect a wait on Sunday if you get there around 9.00am. Bring cash - they don't accept credit or debit cards
