About Us

Jackie B. Goode's Uptown cafe has been in continuous operation since 1993. The cafe was purchase in 2008 by David L. Goode and was renovated January of 2009. The cafe is in like-new condition and is the cleanest restaurant in Branson.

Jack D. Goode (the brother of owner David L. Goode) was killed in Vietnam in 1968 while serving in the United Sates Army. A memorial tribute has been added to the vestibule of the cafe which includes Jack's photo and over a dozen medals awarded to him for valor by the United States and South Vietnam governments. Among those medals, Jack received the Silver Star for his bravery and heroism.

The cafe features a 1950's - 60's theme with rock-n-roll music playing on the jukebox near the old time soda fountain where you can have a malt, shake, sundae, banana-split, apple pie or homemade peach cobbler. A large common area has been added for serving large groups and Branson's most beautiful stage added where live musical performances are held for our patrons entertainment, free of charge.

In front of the cafe you will see our little Henry J. Taxi Cab. It's a rare taxi with only 120,000 produced between 1949 and 1953. It was America's first compact car and sold for $1,321.

The Uptown Cage is completely smoke-free, and although family oriented, patrons can enjoy beer, wine and pre-mixed cocktails.
