I have had lunch here several times. The plate lunches are good. The service is just ok. They need to work on service. They have great fresh baked pies which is a real treat.

You can get the plate special, a sandwich (including on of the best burgers around) or breakfast anytime. The plate specials offer a good variety of sides, so you can have a meal that you like.

I stopped by to have dinner and really wanted liver and onions, but alas, they only serve it on Friday and it was Tuesday! I ordered the Chicken Fried Chicken and it was terrific! There was so much food - but it was all good! The staff were friendly - as well as the other diners at nearby tables. Since... More

Met an old friend of mine for breakfast at this little diner as I was traveling. I had a 3 egg cheese omelet and some yummy homemade bread for only $5. Good food - good prices.

Our waitress was excellent and treated us and served us well. While most of my table was happy with the entrees, my omelette tasted strange so I ate half, hoping it was my tastebuds. It wasn't. Either the eggs had turned or fake eggs were used, because they had a funky flavor.

The only thing I have ever ordered at Ozark Cafe is the catfish. That's because it is so darn good. Flaky with a crispy coating that doesn't overpower the fish. The sides are mostly good, but I would recommend the fried squash. Too much coating leaves it soggy. The hush puppies are yummy.
