The Boot Goes Gourmet... with Sandwiches!

Last week the blog for our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant in Osage Beach undoubtedly made your mouth water talking about the many irresistible Down Home Sandwiches featured on our menu. Hopefully, you satisfied those cravings we gave you and are reading this on a full stomach because we're about to do it again! Today is all about the Gourmet Sandwiches & Wraps you'll find at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and, be warned, they're taste-tempting!  



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. That means they have the knowledge and expertise to make critical judgments about the taste of something, like our talented and creative Wobbly Boots BBQ chefs!  

When used as an adjective, like the way you might choose to describe the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, gourmet means that high quality and exotic ingredients are used and the food is prepared in an extremely specialized and skilled way. Everyone in our kitchen is most definitely highly skilled when it comes to whipping up something amazing and delicious. One area of the menu where that is clearly evident is the Gourmet Sandwiches & Wraps section. 



GOURMET SANDWICHES & WRAPS
All of these amazing sandwiches are a plateful on their own, but we do you one better and serve each with your choice of one of our homestyle side dishes. 

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

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

Our Down Home Sandwiches Deliciously Hit the Spot

The best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks is what gets most people's attention when someone mentions Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. Once you come in and get a look at our extensive menu, you realize we have a lot more than that to offer! There are also salads, soups, burgers, steaks, seafood, and a long, long list of savory sandwiches to try. 



As a matter of fact, there are so many sandwiches and wraps on the list, we've divided it into two sections: Down Home and Gourmet. Next week we'll tell you more about our Gourmet Sandwiches, but today's blog is all about the Down Home Sandwiches on our menu. 

Sandwich History
You might be surprised to learn that the general term of "sandwich" is said to be named in honor of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. (Yep, that's a real thing!) Stories claim that Lord Sandwich invented the food combination of placing meat between two slices of bread. The details are debatable, but the story we found is very interesting.

Apparently, the Earl was an avid gambler and did not want to take time away from the gambling table to eat a meal during his many hours of play. He would instead have servants bring him meat between bread slices. That soon caught on and others at the table began ordering "the same as Sandwich." Another account suggests that rather than gambling, Lord Sandwich was so committed to working that it was his desk that he didn't want to leave. (That first story is a lot more fun!)  



Down Home Sandwiches at the Boot
Here at the Boot, it's the dining table that you won't want to leave once you get a load of the mouthwatering sandwiches and wraps on our Down Home portion of the menu. Each of these meals comes with your choice of one of our amazing side dishes too. 

Texas 2-Step
Smoked beef brisket topped with slices of smoked sausage & BBQ sauce.

Crusty Cuban
House-pulled pork, pit ham, pickles, house mustard, and Swiss cheese all pressed to perfection.

Smothered Brisket
Beef Brisket smothered with sauteed mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers and then topped with melted Swiss cheese.




Wrangler Wrap
A wheat tortilla stuffed with 3 of our signature items: pulled pork, BBQ baked beans, and creamy coleslaw.

Catfish BLT
A southern-style catfish filet coated in seasoned cornmeal and fried to a golden brown. It's served on a hoagie with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and chipotle mayo.



Southern Style Pork
A pulled pork sandwich with a Carolina twist! Its topped with our creamy coleslaw. 

Burnt Ends Sandwich
Double-rubbed and double-smoked brisket tips in a beer BBQ sauce topped with coleslaw. This one's available as a regular or a jumbo serving! 



Lone Star Sausage & Peppers
Our house-smoked sausage served on a hoagie roll topped with sauteed bell peppers, onions, and Provolone cheese. 

Hand-Breaded Pork Tenderloin
An Iowa tradition! This generous cut of pork tenderloin is breaded to order and fried to a golden brown. 



Now that you're good and hungry thinking about the best homestyle cooking at the Lake of the Ozarks, you need to get yourself to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse soon and give these Down Home Sandwiches a try. Next week we're going to introduce you to the other half of our sandwiches and wraps menu with our gourmet selections. Once you get a load of those, the decision of which dish you're going to order will just get even harder!

TRIPADVISOR REVIEWS

"Favorite Place for Wings
Wobbly Boots has become our favorite, especially for wings! All of their food is delicious, however, we do not leave WB without ordering their wings - trashed, with their traditional sauce. I’ve never been disappointed with anything I’ve ordered off the menu.
"
~akbauman2015

"Friendly server
You get your money's worth. My tea glass was never empty. we came with a larger group and we were very well accommodated. Foods had good flavor.
"
~Phoebe M.

"First time
We got the buffalo chicken dip for an appetizer and it was huge. The portions are huge enough for 2 people to share. Beer was good and cold.
"
~Erin H.

"Dinner
My husband had the barbecue pork sandwich with curly fries and I had the burnt ends barbecue sandwich with a huge baked potato. Both were excellent and the portions were very large. Would definitely go there again! Had many other options that looked wonderful."
~Laurie0604

"Really tasty BBQ with a great whiskey selection
Went here with our family for dinner. The wait was only about 15 minutes, and this place was PACKED. Got our table and instantly got service from our waitress. Our family of 4 each got something different and it was all really delicious. My wife loved her burger, and I really enjoyed the ribs. I tasted my daughter's pulled pork, and it was good as well. My little daughter liked her chicken strips as well. They had an ok selection of craft beer, which I really enjoy. Had a lot of local Missouri brews that I've never had, so that was exciting. I also looked at the selection of whiskey, and they had some great and rare ones. Don't hesitate to go here, it's worth the wait.
"
~NathanW99Subie



YELP REVIEWS

"This was our last dinner before heading back to Chicago. All I can say is GET THE CHEESY CORN! Did you hear me? Get. The. Cheesy. Corn. Omg so good. The other food was excellent, too... But for a side, everyone must order the cheesy corn. You're welcome."
~Emily B. 

"Awesome BBQ. Pulled pork and Turkey were delicious! Do not pass on the mac and cheese! Do yourself a favor and get the wings too!"
~Tia K.

"Came here with the whole family (8 adults, 3 small kids), and thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ. Definitely would recommend getting here early if you don't want a long wait-we arrived at 4:45 pm & were seated immediately on a Thursday evening, but within an hour, there were a lot of people waiting. Most of us ordered BBQ, but also burgers and salad-everything delicious and would definitely return. Great service and casual, so was good for the kids & family."
~Jennifer D.

"Best BBQ at the lake and maybe in Missouri for that matter. Service is always on point even when the place is slammed with a wait, which is just about every weekend during the summertime. Brisket quesadilla is awesome and we get it every time. Our kids love that app too. The smoked meats never disappoint. I've had them all here. Even the Cobb salad with turkey and ham is a great choice. My favorite sides are the green beans and cheesy corn.
~Steve S.

Join Us at the Lake of the Ozarks Wingfest 2018

We often talk about having the best wings at the Lake of the Ozarks (and we hear that same thing from everyone that tastes them too!) On Wednesday, September 19 you can help us prove that fact at this year's Lake of the Ozarks Wingfest 2018! All the wings you can eat, live music, and money raised for a great cause... you don't want to miss that!




WHAT:
The Lake of the Ozarks WingFest

WHEN:
Wednesday, September 19, 2018

WHERE:
The Lodge of Four Seasons
Campana Hall

HOW MUCH:
$10 in advance
$12 at the door
Free for kids 5 & under

WHY:
To benefit lake area charities, plus...
WINGS!!!

WingFest brings many local restaurants together under one roof and gives them all a chance to prove they can cook up the best chicken wings at the Lake of the Ozarks. Your ticket includes all the wings you care to eat during the event, 2 drink tickets for either beer, wine, or soda, and musical entertainment from the talented Cindy Lawhorn. If you'd like to purchase your tickets in advance, they are available at all of the Central Bank of the Lake of the Ozarks locations. 


Why The Boot Should Win
Just one taste is all you need of our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant's tender, mouthwatering, hickory-smoked wings to convince you that they are the best in the Midwest. Since you can't have them until next week's Wingfest (unless, of course, you come on into to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse sooner than that) here is a vivid description of our delicious wings to give you a good idea of what you can expect. (The pictures help too. If we could only figure out how to add the irresistible scent into the blog...) 


First, we coat jumbo chicken wings in our very special house dry rub. Next, they are slow-roasted in our hickory pit until they reach the perfect degree of fall-off-the-bone goodness. After that, you are welcome to enjoy them as-is, because our plain smoked wings are absolutely delicious on their own. If you prefer your wings with sauce, we've got some amazing options for you too. 
  • BBQ - Our house recipe sauce. A great addition to anything!
  • Original - A mustard-based sauce like no other.
  • Chipotle Buffalo - Our version of traditional Buffalo.
  • Teriyaki - Sweet meets heat. Delicious!
  • Trashed   - Our smoked wings deep-fried before serving.
Wobbly Wings come in orders of 5, 10, 20, or even 30, and they're tasty enough to make a meal out of on their own. If you want to enjoy our wings along with a few other savory BBQ options, they make a wonderful appetizer or you can order one of our combination plates. 

Ribbies & Wings
Two of our most popular items! You get 4 individual pork spare ribs and 6 Wobbly Wings.  

The Wobbly Boots Sampler
Some of the best of what we have to offer! 4 Wobbly Wings, 4 Spare Ribs, 4 Onions Rings, and 4 Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. A mountain of food suitable for a big meal or sharing!


Like we said, if you simply can't wait until Wingfest 2018 on Wednesday, September 19, then, by all means, come on into our family friendly restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks before that and get your wing fix! Still, we hope that you are able to join Wobbly Boots BBQ along with all of the other local restaurants taking part in this fantastic lake area annual event. Be sure to bring your appetite, and start at our booth first before someone else eats them all!
