Find the Best Burgers at the Lake of the Ozarks at the Boot

You may be expected to stay at home right now, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on satisfying those Wobbly Boots Roadhouse cravings! Simply by giving us a call at 573-348-2277 any day from 11:00 am-9:00 pm and you can still get the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks to take home with you.   

In addition to that mouthwatering, hickory-smoked BBQ, the rest of our menu is available too and we're even throwing in a few specialty items every once in a while to keep things interesting. Today's blog highlights one of our most popular non-BBQ menu items, the best burgers at the Lake of the Ozarks. (Spoiler alert, some of our burgers actually do have some BBQ elements added to them. Doubly delicious!) 



Burgers at the Boot
All of the beef used for burgers at Wobbly Boots BBQ is raised in the Midwest (Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska) from Valley Meats. They only use domestic corn and grain-fed beef select or higher. The result is a special blend of certified black Angus chuck, brisket, and short rib. 

Here at the Boot, we hand-patty all of our burgers and cook them on a flat-top iron to perfection. They are then placed on a fresh kaiser bun with lettuce, tomato, and onion and served to you with one of our homestyle side dishes.



Tons of Tasty Choices
You are always welcome to come up with our own personalized burger creation from our list of toppings. We also have quite a few amazing combinations already on the menu for you to choose from. 

Farm Boy Burger
A juicy, flavorful classic cooked the way you like it! 

Ham, Mushroom & Swiss Burger
Our famous Farm Boy Burger topped with pit ham, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. 

Black & Bleu Burger
That same famous Farm Boy Burger spiced up with Cajun seasoning and bleu cheese crumbles. This one tastes great with bacon added too!

El Diablo Burger
A real mouth-burner! Topped with ghost pepper cheese, bacon, jalapenos, and our zesty 6-pepper sauce. 



Hickory Bacon BBQ Cheeseburger
Now that's a mouthful! A half-pound burger topped with our house recipe BBQ sauce, hickory-smoked bacon, and good old American cheese. 

Patty Melt
Our famous burger topped with sauteed onions, 1000 Island, and Swiss cheese served on grilled marbly rye bread.  

Beale Street Burger
Our tribute to the South! It's topped with pulled pork and creamy coleslaw.

As long as we all take care now to keep each other healthy and safe, things will eventually get back to normal. Our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks misses seeing all of your smiling faces in person but we can keep you well-fed at home with to-go orders until the day when you can once again join us for a meal in the dining room.

3 Reasons Why People LOVE BBQ So Very Much

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has an advantage over many other restaurants & bars at the Lake of the Ozarks because our menu is filled with delicious, mouthwatering, hickory-smoked BBQ. Nearly everyone across the country loves BBQ (especially if they've tasted our BBQ from the Boot!)



Just what makes this particular type of food so very irresistible? We have a few thoughts on that. 


The Flavor
The art of BBQ requires patience because the best flavors come out when the cooking is done low and slow. Our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant chooses to smoke our meats. This process allows us to create the most tender, juicy, flavorful meats possible, always slow-smoking them over our favorite wood - hickory.

First, we generously coat the meats with our secret-recipe rub, then it gets a carefully selected amount of time in the smoker. Here, rather than being cooked directly over the heat, it is instead cooked next to it. The reason we use hickory is that it lends a rich, full-bodied flavor to all of our meats. Once it's done, those meats get a dose of our house recipe BBQ sauce, and the result is a mouthwatering flavor that is simply irresistible! 




The Aroma
Once you walk into our dining room, and often-times the second you step out of your car in the parking lot, that amazing aroma of our meats slowly smoking over hickory hits you! It's a rare person that can keep their mouth from watering once that happens, which is quickly followed by the stomach rumbling, even if you weren't hungry the second before. (You sure are now!) Any food that can do that to your sense of smell is definitely one you want to treat your sense of taste with! 


The Choices
BBQ, especially the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks that we happen to serve at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, is also a very versatile meal. There are all kinds of delicious dishes to choose from, and we put them together in a variety of ways so that even the "same old meat" you usually order can be enjoyed in a delicious and fascinating new way. 


We serve savory hickory-smoked meats on their own, but also as an additional ingredient in nearly every dish that we serve. These meats include (but are not limited to): 

  • Hand-Pulled Pork
  • Beef Brisket
  • Turkey Breast
  • Pit Ham
  • Smoked Sausage
  • Burnt Ends


Of course, we do realize that there are those rare individuals that do not enjoy the incredible taste of BBQ. (We don't understand it, but they do exist.) If you happen to be friends with one of these people, we still have lots of other delicious dishes on our menu that even they can enjoy, so everybody's happy!



The Boot Makes It Easy
The very best part about eating BBQ at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is the fact that we take care of all of the cooking for you! Even the most skilled grillmaster will admit, it takes a lot of work to make the best BBQ, so when someone else can do it beautifully, it's a lot easier to let them! 


All you need to do is show up and enjoy, and we'll even clean up the plates for you when you're done if you dine in! If you prefer to order your food to go, we'll package it up perfectly so you can take those fantastic flavors home to enjoy. 



The next time you're in the mood for some of the best hickory-smoked meats at the Lake of the Ozarks, head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. In addition to the great flavor, amazing aroma, and multitude of choices, you'll get a great big friendly smile and family-friendly atmosphere to go along with it. (It always tastes even better that way!) 

Currently, to help people practice social distancing as suggested, we are offering curbside pickup. You can view the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse menu online through our website. Give us a call at (573) 348-2277 to place an order to go. Stay healthy and we'll all get together once again when this is over.

Food Holidays in March - The Boot's Got You Covered!

The team here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse loves checking out the "bizarre" holidays calendar to see what type of unique holidays are headed our way. Apparently, March is National Celery Month, which you'd think might not be something a BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks would cover, but on the contrary, we've got a perfect tribute! March 19 also happens to be National Poultry Day and around here, those two celebrations tie together quite nicely. 


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

How Do You Celebrate Celery?
The best answer for this fits in with the poultry topic too, and that's "alongside a plate full of Wobbly Wings!" We find that celery can be pretty boring eaten by itself but serving it with hot wings seems to make this vegetable a lot more attractive. 

The cold, crunchiness is a nice contrast to the meatiness of our perfectly hickory-smoked wings. If you happen to choose a wing sauce that's a hot one, that celery dipped in dressing is the perfect way to cool your taste buds down for another spicy bite. When it comes to sauces, your delicious choices include; BBQ (of course), Original, Chipotle Buffalo, Teriyaki, and Trashed (which means they are deep-fried before serving.) 


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

Tastes Like Chicken...
As for National Poultry Day, there are a lot more ways to celebrate that here at the Boot. Just about every section of our menu has at least one tasty chicken option. Here's a look at a few of those. 

Chicken Tenders
Fresh chicken tenders, hand-breaded and cooked to a golden brown. These taste especially delicious tossed in one of our savory wing sauces! 

Chicken Fried Chicken
Hand-breaded chicken breast served with green beans and smashed potatoes with country-style cream gravy. 


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

Hot Cheesy Stripper
Breaded chicken tenders tossed in our hot chipotle sauce and topped with melted Provolone cheese on a hoagie roll. 

Buffalo Chicken Wrap
Breaded chicken tenders tossed in our hot chipotle sauce, served in a wheat tortilla with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar-jack cheese. 


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

The Boot Goes Gourmet... With Sandwiches & Wraps!

To go "gourmet," you don't have to get fancy and fill a plate with foods that don't really look like food and have names you can't pronounce. On the contrary, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach has an entire section of Gourmet Sandwiches that even the pickiest foodies will love!



What is "Gourmet?"
The word gourmet is both a noun and an adjective. If a person claims to be this, they are a connoisseur of fine food and drink. (Fine food and drink is an excellent description of what you will always find at our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks!) 

Gourmet as an adjective is meant to describe foods that involve high-quality ingredients and skilled preparation. (Yep, still covers the type of cuisine we serve on a daily basis!) It's especially true for the savory sandwiches and wonderful wraps featured in today's blog. Get ready to have your mouth water because the rest of the page is going to make you hungry! 



Gourmet Sandwiches & Wraps
Each one of these amazing sandwiches is served with your choice of one of our homestyle side dishes. 

6-Pepper Steak Po' Boy
Thin-shaved smoked prime rib and Swiss cheese topped with our 6-pepper sauce. 

Texas Style Club
Ham, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, Provolone cheese, and avocado mayo served on wheatberry bread. 

Buffalo Chicken Wrap

Grilled Turkey Wrap
The original Wobbly Boots wrap! Lightly grilled turkey breast served in a warm wheat tortilla stuffed full of bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar-jack cheese, and ranch dressing. 

Turkey Avocado Wrap
Hickory-smoked 100% breast of turkey served in a wheat tortilla with avocado, avocado mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar-jack cheese. 



Prime Rib French Dip
Thin-shaved smoked prime rib and melted Swiss cheese on a hoagie served with a side of au jus. 

Reuben
Classic grilled marble rye bread, house-smoked corned beef, warm sauerkraut, 1000 Island dressing, and melted Swiss cheese. 

Hot Cheesy Stripper
Breaded chicken tenders tossed in our hot chipotle sauce and topped with melted Provolone cheese on a hoagie roll. 

Salmon BLT
Grilled salmon filet served on a hoagie with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado mayo. 



Smoked Salmon Wrap
Delicate house-smoked salmon paired with a lemon-caper cream cheese and served in a wheat tortilla with lettuce, tomato, and red onion. 

Prime Rib Melt
Succulent house-smoked shaved prime rib topped with Swiss cheese on grilled sourdough bread. It is served with our house-made horsey sauce on the side for an extra kick! 

Fried Shrimp Po' Boy
Delicious combination of hand-breaded shrimp with lettuce, tomato, and Cajun mayo served on a hoagie. 




Gourmet doesn't need to be overly fancy, it just has to taste great! Wobbly Boots BBQ's gourmet sandwich selections that we've featured today are only the beginning of the culinary delights waiting for you at the Boot. 

As a matter of fact, these are only a small sampling of the incredible sandwiches on the menu. Next week, we'll have an entire blog dedicated to the mouthwatering Down Home Sandwiches section. 

Of course, if the suspense is killing you, you can head on over for lunch or dinner right now and get a good look (and a great smell) of everything we have to offer. We're open daily at 11:00 am. Come and get it!

Baby Back Ribs or Spare Ribs - Which Do You Love Most?

You can't claim to be the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks unless you know how to cook up a mouthwatering, finger-licking good rack of ribs. Well, WobblyBoots Roadhouse in Osage Beach just so happens to know exactly how to do that! 



As a matter of fact, here at the Boot, we serve two different types of ribs; Baby Back Ribs and Classic Pork Spare Ribs. Some people have a strong opinion about which type they like best. Here's the lowdown on each one to help you decide which to order the next time you're in the mood for some hickory-smoked BBQ. 

Baby Back Ribs 
The name of this delicious dish does not come from the age of the animal, but rather the smaller size of the ribs compared to classic spare ribs. They are also the tenderest and leanest ribs you can order with meat both between and on top of the bones. These are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and spare ribs, below the loin muscle.

Baby back ribs are sometimes referred to as back ribs, loin ribs, or Canadian ribs. The latter is due to the fact that Canadian bacon comes from the same loin meat that is connected to these ribs. Generally, baby back ribs have between 10-13 curved bones that are 3-6 inches long.

Here at the Boot, our Baby Back Ribs Dinner can be ordered as either a full or half-slab of tender, meaty ribs. First, they are coated in our special dry rub. After that, we slow-smoke them, lightly grill them, and baste the ribs with our secret recipe sauce before putting them on a plate next to Texas toast and your favorite side dish.



Pork Spare Ribs
Spare ribs are flatter than baby back ribs and tend to have less meat, but since they are also a fattier cut, that often causes them to be one of the most flavorful cuts. They are taken from the belly side of the rib cage, below the section of back ribs and above the breast bone.

Our Classic Pork Spare Ribs Dinner at the Boot is an experience that true BBQ-lovers thoroughly enjoy. Available as either a full or half-slab serving, our special dry rub is used to coat the juicy ribs and then they are slow-roasted over hickory logs until they reach the perfect degree of mouthwatering goodness! A big ol' slice of Texas toast and one of our homestyle side dishes complete the dining experience. 



Ribs... & More!
Here at our Lake of the Ozarks family-style restaurant, you can also order our succulent ribs as either an appetizer or as a part of a combo meal. That way, not only do you get to satisfy those BBQ rib cravings but you also get a taste of one of our other irresistible menu items. 


Ribbies & Wings
Two of our most popular items, both on one plate! Four individual pork spare ribs with our house recipe BBQ sauce and six Wobbly Wings with your choice of sauce. 

The Wobbly Boots Sampler
Some of the best of what we have to offer! Four Wobbly Wings, four onion rings, four bacon wrapped shrimp, and four of our spare ribs slathered in BBQ sauce. A mountain of food suitable for a big meal or sharing! 

BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo
A delicious combination of mouthwatering 'que! Half a BBQ chicken and a half-slab of pork spare ribs both glazed with our house-made BBQ sauce. 


So, what do you think? Will you be a Baby Back Ribs fan or a Spare Ribs fan? The easiest way to find out is to come on into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and give them both a try! Since it's some of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, you know you'll be back more than once anyway. Come back often and try it all!
