Big chief roadhouse has a celebrated history dating back to 1929. Located near Pond, Missouri, Big Chief Roadhouse was originally built by William Clay Pierce, of the Pierce-Pennant Oil Company, as part of the Big Chief Highway Hotel to serve transcontinental travelers on the now famed Route 66. According to local historians and tourist guides from the period, Big Chief was one of the largest tourist cottage courts in Missouri.
Big chief differed from average cottage courts of the time in that it offered relatively elaborate and elegant dining. The uniqueness is rumored to have attracted star baseball legend, Babe Ruth, as well as infamous gangster, Al Capone.
Over the years, Big Chief has gone through many transformations. After Route 66 was diverted to follow the path of what is now Interstate 44, Big Chief lost most of its visitors and eventually closed. Since then, Big Chief was revived as a re-sale shop, landscaping company, and once again a restaurant.
Re-opening as a restaurant in the mid 1990's, Big Chief has for the past 20 years or so, remained a dining destination. The cabins are gone, but it is one of the last remaining full-service restaurants on the famed roadway.
Today, the restaurant boasts a diverse menu with dishes ranging from classic comforts like the country fried steak and chicken pot pie, to modern takes on classics like the toasted lasagna and smoked pork chop.
We welcome you to come in and enjoy a homemade meal and take in a little part of Missouri's storied history.

You are cordially invited to attend the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Classic Car Club of America, April 11-14, 2018 in Branson, Missouri. Club business meetings, car collections, scenic tours and live entertainment will take place during the four-day event, all against a backdrop of CCCA camaraderie.
It all started with a young teen's small collection and a passion for St. Louis history. Years later, a restaurant was born of that collection, and a desire to share the remarkable past of a village once called Frenchtown. We are a totally St. Louis themed Restaurant & Tavern; both the decor and menu feature St. Louis memorabilia and food favorites!
Spirit Nights are a great opportunity to join fellow Club members in a spirit of fellowship and camaraderie in a relaxed atmosphere over a nice dinner.
This is the first Spirit Night of 2018. Don't miss out!
