Our intended stop here was actually Table Rock Lake. But, with jacks not working and much rain, we could not locate a level spot right at the lake. So, instead we stayed in town on the Taneycomo River – well, probably 50 yards back from the river. We found out that you need reservations a year in advance to sit right at the river.
We did find two really good places to eat here. Seems to never be a problem, huh? We had dinner at Billy Bob’s Dairyland, which was patterned after a 50’s diner. It also had neat music from an old jukebox. Great burgers and the best fried pie I’ve ever had. I could go back just for that.
The next day we headed just out of town to Billy Gail’s for breakfast. It too, was very good. A fairly small place in what once was an old gas station. Very neat and not too long a wait.
Mary ordered one pancake. It was on a large plate and hung over the edge all the way around. I think she ate “maybe” half of it. I had biscuits and gravy.
After breakfast, we took a fairly short drive along part of Table Rock Lake. We’ve been several times before and usually drive most of the way around and take many small roads up in the mountains to get pretty overviews of the lake. Today was just a short drive though.
