Unapologetically, Truman's

We have been Columbia's premier sports bar and beloved local hangout for 15 years now, and we're much obliged to lay out a few ground rules.

WHAT WE DO:  Serve damn good bar food in huge portions, and plate up the best breakfast in Columbia.  We slang awesome drinks at the best prices in town. We have 20 rotating beers on tap, over 50 bottles to choose from, a seasonal cocktail menu, & a full bar with well-seasoned bartenders who specialize in attitude adjustments. We have over 50 TVs, including 11 giant 90" projection screens. If Mizzou, the Chiefs, or the Cards are on, there might be nothing else on.  If you're an idiot, we're probably gonna tell you about it.  If you're rude, we'll be ruder.

WHAT WE WON'T DO:  We won't kiss your a$$ or take your $hit.  This ain't Applebees or McDonalds.  We're not gluten-free, low-fat, or any other faddish buzz words, although we are proud to serve Farm Fresh Local Eggs from Stanton Bros in Centralia, MO.  Because supporting local businesses is a real thing.  

No jazz hands, no smoke screens. 

ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS,  don't order off the menu during our breakfast buffet (open till 2:00pm) unless you don't mind waiting at least 45 minutes for your food! 

People love our breakfast buffet and we're busy cooking it for them.  

You're gonna be in line behind them one way or another.

When our breakfast buffet isn't going on, our full menu is available all day.   

We have the best burgers in Columbia: we hand patty them here in house from fresh Prime Midwest ground beef, pork, and bison.  We make 13 different wing sauces in house, and we've been winning awards for our wings since we opened the doors. We hand bread our chicken tenders and our pork tenderloins with our scratch-made, house recipe breading, and we ONLY cook them to order.  

We are NOT a fast-food restaurant.  We ARE the place to get delicious, unpretentious Midwestern fare and awesome drinks at a great price.  

If any of that doesn't sit well with you, Truman's might not be your cup of tea.

And that's okay.



Our place is first-come, first-served: Walk in and have a seat!

During peak business hours, which include weekends, holidays, and Mizzou game days, we are first-come, first-served;  Walk-in business only.
