This sprawling, white-columned restaurant on The Strip is regularly voted as Branson's best buffet by readers of the local paper. If the building looks impressive to you from the outside, wait until you see the inside. Live plants, including impressive climbing ivies, drape from the soffits. The all-you-can eat dinner buffet ($9.95) offers large pieces of chicken fried in a batter that would make even Colonel Sanders cry. And if the chicken is not enough, try the catfish, which is prepared three ways: Cajun, breaded and baked. There is a smaller buffet section for a more health-conscious diet, but hey, you are on vacation, so live a little!

If you are after something a little heartier, try the Heart of Texas Rib Eye.

It's a pure country and western type of atmosphere here at this massive steakhouse. The dining room seats more than 200 guests and the bar regularly hosts celebrity guest bartenders.

Needless to say, almost everything on the menu comes from the cow, yet there are still some fish and chicken options.
