Big Chief Roadhouse has a celebrated history dating back to 1929. Located near Pond Missouri, Big Chief Roadhouse was originally built 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 that 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 elegant and elaborate dining. It is one of the last remaining full service restaurants on the historic roadway today. We welcome you to come in and enjoy a great meal and take in a little part of Missouri's storied history.
