We have been to The Branding Iron in Farmington, MO many times now. Several times we have ordered carry-out as well. Please do not confuse this restaurant location with the one in Jackson, MO. There will be an upcoming review on our visit to the one in Jackson but in Farmington, we have NEVER had a problem, issue, or bad experience!
I mean, look at that, does that just not make you want to pick up and go there now? :)
Yes, every time we’ve been to TBI in Farmington, the food has been fresh, cooked perfectly, the waitress has always been friendly (and they never seem to mind my meatball four-year-old), and it doesn’t take a very long time to get the food. They are almost always busy yet we’ve only had to wait for a table once, and then we waited less than five minutes. The booths and tables are large which is always a plus for a restaurant like this, when food is often served family style.
If you go, we all recommend the rack of ribs! Depending on how many people you have, of course, you’ll all have enough to eat plus some left over. One thing I personally like about these ribs is that they don’t come smothered in BBQ sauce. I’m the type of person who doesn’t typically like a lot of sauce, if any, so these please all – they are cooked with just the right amount and anyone who wants ore, has several there at the table to choose from.
Of course, the pulled pork is also awesome. I usually get that for my boy, since it’s easier for a kid to eat that than the ribs or other items that might have bones in them. He loves it and usually as to defend the food from everyone else!
One more thing: the atmosphere. It’s typical to BBQ restaurants but also has some originality with items such as vintage guitars or Boy Scouts items on the wall. There’s always something interesting to look at while one is waiting on food!
Suddenly I want some BBQ…
