Billy Bob’s Dairy Land


1901 W 76 Country Blvd., Branson, Missouri 65616—(417) 337-9292

I recently spent a few days in Branson with the family and we ate at several very good restaurants.  One of them was Billy Bob’s Dairy Land.  This restaurant shares a building with a Shell gas station but don’t let that deter you from checking them out.  They have amazing hamburgers. I bought the double cheeseburger with fries.  The burger was huge, they do not skimp on the meat.  The patties were very thick and cooked perfect. The fries and onion rings were very good as well.  They are suppose to have amazing fried pies but I didn’t try one as the burger and fries filled me up. I highly recommend this restaurant.


Five Guys Burgers and Fries


Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Longview, Texas is one of the chain burger joints but it does have some great hamburgers.  The fries are pretty good as well and they give you way more than you would eat by yourself.


I suggest if you go in with more than one person that you share the fries as the picture above only shows about a third of the fries they give you per serving.


All around a pretty good chain restaurant and you can snack on peanuts while you wait.


They have good ratings everywhere they are located which other chains can’t claim.


Roadhouse Bastrop

About 30 miles East of Austin is a great little town called Bastrop.  I frequented the town quite a bit so you will see multiple postings.  My first is a great restaurant called Roadhouse (don’t confuse it with the steakhouse, Texas Roadhouse).  The Roadhouse is always busy and when you try one of their burgers you will know why.  I’ve been several times and each burger is wonderful, they make their own buns with multiple choices.  Below are three of the burgers I’ve tried there.

Avocado Cheeseburger

Fresh avocado with swiss or cheddar cheese.  I usually go with the swiss which works great with the avocado taste.
A simple, yet eloquent burger.

Jalapeno Cream Cheese Burger

This burger is for those of you who like a little kick in the spicy area.  Texas Monthly rated it one of the best in Texas.

Ted’s “Destruction” Burger

As the menu says, a little bit of everything.  I’ve had this bad boy multiple times and it is a little messy but well worth it.

Out of all the burger places I’ve eaten at, I would rank this number 1 overall for quality and flavor.  The burgers are large and they serve plenty of fries (they also have sweet potato fries).  They serve breakfast now but I have not had the chance to try that out yet.
Hopefully soon!
