Maybe you’re en route to Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri, or you’re just taking a scenic drive through the Ozarks. Whatever the occasion, make time to stop at Smith’s Restaurant, a 45-minute drive northwest of Springfield.
Smith’s makes perfectly crispy breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches and seasonal desserts to take home – think black walnut cream pie, cherry and rhubarb cobbler and Key lime pie.
Pro-tip: Smith’s only accepts cash or check, and if you visit on a Sunday, get there before church lets out.
