When it's too hot to cook...
It's summer, and let's be honest, no matter how much we all love the reward of our time tending the BBQ grill, sometimes it's just TOO hot to endure! We have put together a list of some of our favorite area restaurants to lighten your summertime cooking load!
Close to Home | Omaha & Ridgedale
Arnie's Barn is one of our favorite spots to dine at Big Cedar. It’s just a few minutes down the road in Ridgedale, MO and the NEXT nearest to The Bungalows! The restaurant, which is situated overlooking the Top of the Rock golf course, offers contemporary Mexican cuisine. Lunch is served daily & you can plan for dinner on Friday or Saturday nights. Check out their menu for more information!
Buzzard Bar is another Big Cedar property. Enjoy bar food and live music pretty much any evening! View their hours and more here.
A more traditional Mexican restaurant, Casa Fuentes, is one of our all-time favorites! Located just off Hwy 65 at the beginning of the 76 Strip you can slip in for a quick bite or easily grab takeout. They also offer online ordering!
Branson's Center Stage Grille & Kaffee Haus is a local restaurant with chef-inspired dishes. They serve breakfast and have amazing specials. We highly recommend the Smoked Prime Rib! Check out their extensive menu here.
If you're craving something more exotic, find your way to Mo Mo Sushi & Grill located across from The Landing in downtown Branson. Their Box Combos are our favorite! Call ahead & bring your order back to the cabin for a nice evening in. 1-417-320-6125
Tallgrass is our TOP Harrison pick! This little restaurant/bar/coffee shop adjoins a health food store and is definitely a hidden gem! Their organically and locally-sourced ingredients make this option stand out amongst dozens of fast-food chains. Find them on Facebook for more info on daily specials, etc.
Jamie's Local Flavor is another great locally-owned and operated restaurant in Harrison. If you're into pork, try the Deep Fried Bacon appetizer or the famed Bigger Than the Bun Pork Tenderloin Sandwich. The menu is extensive and the portions will leave you begging for a box. Find them on Facebook!
Our oldest daughter and her family had been living aboard a sailboat which was the source of some great inspiration!
On a visit to see them, they showed us a floating "UFO" and several other floating bungalows in the Florida Keys which totally helped us define our plan!
We immediately checked into several boats up and down the coast of Florida and everywhere in between. Then finally found our two beauties! The measurements were all we needed to move forward with our vision!
