There are times when I venture out of Branson and eat at some of the surrounding area’s establishments. I live fairly close to Forsyth so this is where I went this evening. If you like BBQ this is a great place to eat. The meats are very well smoked and have a great flavor. They are good stand-alone, or with the house made sauces (I prefer the hot variety). They also have a mild, and a sweet sauce. The service is excellent and the staff is friendly. Prices are very reasonable if you are feeding a family. The menu has a lot of options, so variety is not a problem. I usually have a combination plate so I can have a variety of their smoked meats. The sides are very good, smoked baked beans are obviously made from scratch, and the hand-cut fries are delicious. My only complaint of this evening’s meal is that I saw on their side item offering regular and specialty sides. On the specialty sides list was Macaroni and cheese. I love mac and cheese with BBQ so I spent the extra money and ordered it. They brought me a bowl of Kraft macaroni and cheese. All I can say is shame on you guys. You spend all that time and effort on your meats and other sides and you present this as a specialty side? Okay gripe over. Overall the rest of the meal was top-notch. I will continue to go there and recommend it to others, I just won’t order mac and cheese again.

Forsyth is just a short drive from Branson and if you are looking for a break from the crowds and traffic, it is a nice diversion and a scenic drive. And please check out Fat Daddy’s BBQ.
