This restaurant built into a cliff, visited in April 2023, is going strong, and the food and drink are excellent. Don't worry: an inside roof overhead keeps stray pebbles from landing in your food. Thursdays they do half-off draft beer specials when the train right outside goes by. Civil engineers like me will appreciate this place for sure.

Very cool eatery. The rock is exposed on the inside. Assorted taxidermy animals and tin signs decorate the walls. The service and food were just as fantastic.

The food was great. Worth the short drive from Joplin. Come early because it can get busy for lunch.

Undercliff Bar and Grill

The Undercliff Bar and Grill is in the middle of nowhere, but our Garmin found it. There really are three friendly dogs on the premises. It is built into the side of a cliff. It is packed full of signs. The staff was friendly, the place was busy, the music and food was great. Our son just had to go back and touch the cliff wall.
