Rosie Jo's has relocated to a new location that is bigger and a lot nicer than their old location. They still serve up delicious food and have their daily specials as always. They servers are still friendly and bends over backwards to make sure your meal is exactly right. I love going on Friday nights when they have all you... More

Wow! A flattened chicken breast, dredged in seasoned flour and fried. Then a creamy white gravy poured over the top. A side of mashed potatoes with more of the white gravy and green beans. Comfort food at it's best.

Food was edible. Nothing special. Besides nostalgia I don't understand why this place is so busy. Greasy, fried, low end food. I don't mind diner food everyone once in a while if it's really good. This was just ok. The fried chicken takes thirty minutes to cook and is bland. Pretty much fried country/ diner food. It's loud, cramped and... More

Rosie Jo's has the best catfish and fried chicken in Ozark! The food is great, but if you're in a hurry don't go there. It takes any where between a half hour to an hour to get your food, That's the only down fall to this place. Service is terrible, but most days it's worth the wait.

Wonderful place to have "down home" cooking. Friendly servers. Food is always great. Fried Chicken is fried after you order it, meat loaf is like your Mama used to make!

Rosie does a great job with home style favorites. A little known fact is the high quality catering she does for the school hospitality room. Her chicken strips are legendary and demanded by everyone! You will not be disappointed!
