Branson is seeing a boost in development recently, with new businesses popping up left and right. New places to shop have opened, and several restaurants and fast food joints have already opened or will be opening soon. Curious about what’s new with Branson restaurants? From chain to independent, I’ve got the inside scoop.
People seriously love Chick-Fil-A. I mean, there was a Bring Chick-Fil-A to Branson Facebook fan page. So, yes, I guess you could say people are pretty happy about this addition. Get your fix soon.
Opening: Spring 2015
Location: 607 West Main Street
Families will be the most excited about this news. Cheap, good food in a fun setting? I’m sold. The fresh pizza, pasta, salads and desserts buffet is an easy choice for both locals and visitors. At a cost of around $6 per person, CiCi’s Pizza is super affordable too.
Opening: Construction starting soon; Date not yet announced
Location: 3460 West 76 Country Blvd
Big Whiskey’s Bar and Grill
A locally owned franchise, Big Whiskey’s is one of the best bar bets in the region. Food is consistent and more than just standard bar fare. Plus, the selection of beer and many televisions make it a great place to catch the game.
Opening: Date not yet announced
Location: 3 Branson Landing Blvd, Suite 200
This unique Italian restaurant is going to be over-the-top. From the giant 15-foot tall meatball to the 50-foot fork sticking out of the restaurant, the exterior is indeed outlandish. Inside, two different themes will appeal to families and couples.
Opening: Opening Late Spring
Location: 3105 West 76 Country
Moe’s Southwest Grill
Fast and fresh tacos and burritos are the signature of Moe’s Southwest Grill. Think Qdoba, with a few more southwest inspired options. I love their burritos (The Homewrecker is my go-to) and the free chips and salsa with every meal is a good value.
Opening: Approximately March 26th
Location: 76 Marketplace, in front of Price Chopper (2210 W 76 Country Blvd)
For quick, tasty Chinese food you can’t go wrong with Panda Express. It’s an elevated fast food option for when you can’t stomach another stop at a burger joint.
Opening: Now Open
Location: 850 Branson Hills Parkway
Buffalo Wild Wings
Literally a fan favorite thanks to its sports bar theme, B-Dubs (as it’s known by frequenters) is a casual place to watch the game, drink a beer and eat some wings. Families will like it too, as waiters give kids handheld consoles to play on if the televised game doesn’t interest them.
Opening: Open Now
Location: 1111 Branson Landing Boulevard
