BRANSON, MO, May 27, 2013 – “One thing’s for certain,” said Tammy Johnson, the Director of Operations for the Branson Tourism Center (BTC), “with about 242 restaurants, offering over 37,000 seats and serving everything from Sushi to BBQ and fast food to fine dining, when it’s time to eat in Branson there’s something to please just about every palate.” Johnson suggests that the following list of restaurants, most of which BTC offers in its “packages” and sells Dining Certificates for, is an excellent cross section of the various dining opportunities Branson offers.
