A little more than 25 years ago, a fella by the name of "Dick" started a small bait shop right on this here spot.  A year later it became a grocery also.  After that, a few burgers and beers were added to the joint.

As rumor had it "Dick" was somewhat of a big guy and folks round these parts called him "Big Dick".  Before you knew it "Big Dick" became quite the popular chap.  Everyone wanted to visit with "Big Dick", but with being a little outta the way, here in the Ozarks, they weren't exactly sure where to find him.  Well folks would tell them "Big Dick" was about "halfway" between the Truman and Bagnell Dams.  And now ya know how "Big Dick's Halfway Inn" came to be.


Hand pattied from fresh ground chuck, Big Dick's burgers are a local favorite!
