Best Burgers in Branson, MO at Danna's BBQ and Burgers!


Hungry for an AMAZING burger stuffed with lots of delicious, juicy meat? Look no farther than Danna's BBQ and Burger Shop in Branson, Missouri! Read our review below...


Total Spend for two people (not including the tip): $19.45:
1 Memphis roll - $0.99 - Hot and fresh with a well of butter in the middle
1 Danna’s Burger - $6.79 - One of their 2 most popular burgers. It’s a 6oz. patty served on a toasted bun with cheese, chopped pork, lettuce, tomato, pickle & BBQ sauce. I love the layering on this burger - it’s very juicy and tender. The bun is just a complimentary carrier for their amazing meats. It’s the way my grandpa would prefer it to be!
1 BBQ Nachos - $9.99 - Chips layered with meat, melted cheddar (it’s NOT nacho cheese sauce FYI), BBQ beans, jalapeno peppers & topped with sour cream. (If you don’t want soggy chips, you can request the chips in a separate basket from all of the layered toppings.) If you want the normal nacho cheese and chips, this isn’t for you, but if you’d like to branch out and explore this flavor combination, go for it!  


Tip: I’ve heard from others not to try to substitute sides or there will be an extra charge.
Ask for extra sauce if you want it. They do have mild BBQ sauce on all the tables and hot BBQ sauce is available on a side table.
Come for an early lunch to get super quick service! We walked in at 10:58, ordered at 11:04, and had our food by 11:10!


If you want good meat and amazing burgers, you should try Danna’s BBQ and Burger Shop! Their burger was the best burger I’ve had in Branson. The meat was tender and all the flavors melded together in a wonderful symphony of tastes. By marinating, adding a secret rub, and slow-smoking their meat over locally smoked hickory wood each night until it’s falling off the bone, they go to great lengths to make you smile after taking a bite.

Once you arrive, you’ll order at the counter, pick a table, and then they’ll deliver your food. Danna’s staff was helpful in answering my questions and the kitchen staff were efficient - just 6 minutes after we ordered, we had our food! Expect a laid-back, rustic atmosphere with old rock n’ roll playing in the background. 
Overall, it’s a fun lunch stop and a good place to sit and cool down while enjoying the best burgers in Branson!
