The Bayou

Reviewed By gimpy2 - springfield mo

We used to go to eat here every week. Only go about once a month now. The poor boys are awesome. But there isn't good sides to go with it. They used to have great steak fries but now only offer the breaded fries. A...Morewe will have them and thank you very much Darren

Mocha Jo

Reviewed By DavidCompton - Purdy, Missouri

Located in the historic downtown Monett, which is seeing several renovations currently. They have a very cool stage created from an old service elevator, that was located in the building. A good amount of the wall adornments are historical, with pictures of Monett through the years. I believe it is worth mentioning, that they have also created a spot for kids upstairs to gather, that is off the street and supervised. I had reservations about the potential for noise, but if not for seeing the sign and kids using a separate entrance to get upstairs, I would have not known there was any activity above me.

Mocha Jo's combines a trendy coffee house with a nice business person's lunch spot. With a very good assortment of sandwiches, salads, and soups I have had several great lunches as a solo or with a friend. They, of course have very pleasant coffees, lattes and a nice assortment of teas.

If you enjoy great conversations in a cool place, Mocha Jo's is great place to spend an afternoon (they are closed on Sunday.)

If you don't care about being treated like a valued customer, here's your DQ. I've eaten at this store for as long as I can remember. Never really had a great experience, but like the ice cream treats. Counter service really needs attention. A machine could do what the girl who took order did. Good service costs nothing. Only training and desire to do well.

Acambaro Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By FUL-QWVR - Springfield, Missouri

My second time here. Our service was prompt and spot on. The food was quite tasty. I had a enchilada plate with three different enchiladas plus refried beans, sour cream and salsa. Good choice. Chips and salsa were quite good. Especially the spicy salsa.

The Family Room Steakhouse

Reviewed By Beckster22 - Illinois

We had a reservation for 20 but they did not have record of it; but accommodated us anyway. Food was ok; much like other family dining restaurants. Service was slow but am sure that was because we only had one waitress for 20 people!

Lai Lai's Buffet and Dining

Reviewed By Carmen W - Aurora, Missouri

We always enjoy the delicious buffet items. Although we've been to larger buffets, we've never been to one with food as yummy!! Milky shrimp...never had it before and it's so amazing! All other items are also delish...meatballs, mushrooms, crab rangoon...actually, with the exception of the hot spicy dishes (which I never eat anyway) I have yet to try anything that wasn't great! Only problem...always a fresh plate for refills...and it is SOOO hard to resist overeating! If you've never been and love Asain-American dishes you won't be disappointed. Service great and cheerful as well!! Kudos to owners for a job well done!

Big Baldys Bac Woods Barbecue

Reviewed By Aerowing - Monee, Illinois

While traveling through the area I saw this place and decided to stop for lunch after seeing a big smoker outside.It's counter service inside. I ordered the badwitch sandwich which is a half pound of whatever meat you want. I had the pulled pork and it was excellent, big pieces and full of flavor. I had a side of cole slaw too which ice cold, creamy and just as good. They do need to clean the fish tank inside but other then that I enjoyed my lunch and would gladly come back again.

While in town on business, I grabbed a quick lunch. This is a traditional local diner, a wide variety of menu items. I had the grilled ham and cheese lunch special, which was exactly like I thought it would be. The other diners were ranging from guys coming in from the fields, to business attire. Every town needs a place like this!

First time, won't be the last. We typically don't eat buffets, as we prefer to eat less and share, but the friends we met so highly recommended the place we had to try it. Unbelievable fried chicken, everything was seasoned perfectly and the variety of food was excellent. Fresh, hot, appealing. Our server was very attentive, polite and friendly. Might try menu next time. It looked awesome. Super clean place, inside and out. Owners obviously pay close attention to detail and know what they are doing.

The food is pretty typical of Missouri Chinese buffets. Not that great. You could tell the meat wasn't exactly the prime cuts. Plus because I was by myself they literally put me face to face with a fish tank.
