Branson’s Clockers Cafe
One can tell that the Clockers Cafe in downtown Branson Missouri is a cozy and welcoming place that serves the best homestyle food. The place is famous around the Ozarks for the “Clocker” sandwich, an opened face burger with the works. Meat loaf, mashed potatoes, soup, chicken fried steak, catfish fillets, pies and sandwiches are other staples. Sides are a dinner roll, a veggie and a potato. The tables are covered with green checked cloth, the chairs are sturdy Windsor style chairs, the booths are family ready, the walls are hung with old prints, the ceilings with model trains and airplanes.
Clockers is not only family friendly, but family run. It’s owned and operated by the Brooks family, Tim, Cindy, their daughter Kelli, as well as Pat, another server. By the way, there’s also live blue grass music on the weekends.
As for the dress code, it’s “Anything Goes.” Hours are 6 in the morning till 7 in the evening Monday through Saturday and 6 in the morning till two in the afternoon on Sunday, perfect hours for a place that happily serves breakfast, dessert (made fresh every day), dinner and lunch and whose price range is under nine bucks. The $2.99 breakfast special features two eggs, bacon and toast. Parking is on the street nearby and neither alcohol nor smoking are allowed. The whole ambiance says, “Bring the family!”
