Missouri's Best Award for Best Barbeque Restaurant in 2023 went to a place called HalfSauced Barbeque in Osage Beach, Missouri. HalfSauced Barbeque is all about the meat, and its menu proves it.

If you go to the website for HalfSuaced Barbeque you can explore their menu, and here are some of the highlights...

For starters, they have things like Smoked Wings, Cheese Fries, and Barbeque Nachos which they describe as...

"Crisp tortilla chips smothered with melted cheddar cheese, topped with your choice of smoked brisket, pulled pork or grilled chicken, tomatoes and green onions. Served with salsa and sour cream."

Once you fill up on appetizers they have a full menu of Sandwiches and Combos, items like the Beef Brisket Sandwich, the Double Smoked Ham Sandwich, the Baby Back Ribs, and something called the HalfSauced Sampler Platter which they describe as...

"A great combination of smoked meats - 3 Baby Back Ribs, Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket & Burnt Ends.  Over a pound of meat!  Perfect for a big appetite or for splitting between two people."

And they accommodate the kids as well with a full kids menu! To learn more about HalfSauced Barbeque check out their Facebook page by clicking here!

I have never been to HalfSauced Barbeque so I can't vouch for them personally, but holy smokes does the menu sound good or what?!? Also, if a place in Osage Beach is beating out BBQ restaurants in St. Louis and Kansas City for the best Barbeque Restaurant in Missouri then you know they are doing something right!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
