The Best Black Angus Burgers at the Lake of the Ozarks!

If you're craving the best burgers at the Lake of the Ozarks, then you need to head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. Not only do we offer the best burgers at the Lake, we boast the best Black Angus Burgers you'll find anywhere in the Midwest! 

We don't just do great BBQ. We put every bit as much care and attention into the rest of our delicious menu as we do our amazing hickory-smoked meats. One area in particular that we excel in flavor is in our wide selection of Black Angus Burgers. What makes ours so special? Well...

Our Burger "Secret"
We only use 100% Black Angus ground chuck, which happens to be made from the tastiest, most tender cut of beef available. Each burger is made by hand to ensure that every one served meets our high standards of size and shape. After it is perfectly formed, we cook it on a flat-top iron and serve it up on a fresh, kaiser bun. 

These incredible burgers are mouth-watering enough to satisfy any hunger just as described above, but here at Wobbly Boots BBQ, we always go above and beyond the standards of great taste! The talented chefs in our  kitchen came up with some unbelievable combinations of toppings to make our burgers even more irresistible. 

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

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 and Swiss cheese, served on grilled marbled rye bread. 

Beale Street Burger
Our tribute to the South! Topped with hickory-smoked pulled pork & creamy cole slaw. 

Black & Bleu Burger
Our famous Farm Boy Burger spiced up with Cajun seasoning and topped with bleu cheese crumbles.

Ham, Mushroom, & Swiss Burger
This time we top our Farm Boy Burger with pit ham, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. 

Each time you come into the Boot, be sure to ask your server what special burger we're featuring that week!

Create Your Own
As creative as the cooks are in our kitchen, we realize that sometimes the only one who knows exactly what you want is... you! When that's the case, you can order up your favorite Black Angus Burger, then add any of the following toppings that your heart (or hunger) desires. 

  • Cheese:
    • American 
    • Provolone
    • Swiss
    • Cheddar-Jack
    • Ghost Pepper
    • Pepper Jack
    • Bleu Cheese Crumbles
  • Sauteed Mushrooms
  • Sauteed Onions
  • Sauteed Green Peppers
  • Bacon

What'll it be? 
Which one of those amazing Black Angus Burgers is making your mouth water the most? Be sure you come in to our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant hungry, because every one of those delicious burgers also comes with one of our home style side dishes. Why slave over a hot grill in the midst of the summer heat? Instead, come on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and let us do the cooking for you. We promise, you'll be thrilled that you did!

How To Pack The Perfect BBQ Picnic Basket

The weather has been so beautiful lately, you may hate the idea of having to come indoors to eat. Good news, because the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks actually travels well. With the proper packing techniques, you can enjoy your favorite Wobbly Boots Roadhouse BBQ and the amazing spring weather outside at the same time! 

BBQ is a great picnic food, and picking it up at Wobbly Boots to go means you don't have to bother with any of the cooking. You can simply enjoy the afternoon outside with everyone else instead of standing at that hot grill. 

The most important thing to take care of when you picnic is the food safety. Hot foods need to be kept hot, and cold foods cold. Insulated coolers can handle both of those tasks. 

Traveling with cold foods, like cole slaw or potato salad (which we sell both of in bulk for larger groups) is easy. You can use sealed containers and ice, but to make sure that ice doesn't melt and leak into the food, you might want to use ice packs instead. 

An even better idea is to freeze water bottles and use those for your ice packs. They take up more space to keep the food in place inside the cooler, plus, once they melt you have cold water to drink. 

Hot foods can take a little more work to pack if you won't be eating them right away. You'll want to pack it into your cooler as soon as soon as you pick up your order. Wrapping the containers in aluminum foil can help to keep the heat in longer. Microwavable hot packs are another great source of heat for keeping our delicious, hickory-smoked meats and home style side dishes warm and ready to eat. 

The more insulation, the better for keeping all of that warmth inside the cooler and around your food. Wrapping the food, along with a hot pack, inside a towel traps in heat. If there is extra space inside the "hot" cooler, you can use more rolled up towels to keep everything in place. Keep the lid closed until serving time, and open it as little as possible. 

If there's any food left after everyone has had their fill, pack it back up as soon as you're done. Try to not leave food out for more than 1 hour. It is suggested that anything left out for more than 2 hours should be thrown away. (But hey, with BBQ this good, there probably won't be anything left to pack away!) 

Go ahead and keep the cold and warm foods separated so that the warm items don't add any heat to the things that are already cold. Keep the coolers in a shaded area, out of direct sunlight until you are ready to head back home. 

After a wonderful lunch full of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may want to get back to the air conditioning and cool off. That's when you can swing back by Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and join us for an ice cold drink and maybe even catch a game. We're always here for you, 7 days a week, all year long, no matter what the season.

It's Turkey Lovers Month! Check Out What We've Got For You ...

This may come as a surprise to you, but June is Turkey Lovers Month. You would assume that would fall closer to Thanksgiving, but this way, you have a second time of the year to make it a point to enjoy that delicious bird. 

Here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, we take 100% white meat turkey breast and smoke it to perfection over hickory, then serve it up with our savory, housemade BBQ sauce on a bun or straight onto the plate with your choice of a delicious home style side dish. We don't stop at that one mouthwatering option though. Here is a list of all the other ways you can get a taste of flavorful hickory-smoked turkey breast at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant.

Turkey Avocado Wrap

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

Texas Style Club

Ham, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, Provolone cheese, and avocado mayo served between two pieces of wheatberry bread. 

Turkey Reuben

Classic grilled marbled rye bread, warm sauerkraut, 1000 Island dressing, lean turkey breast, and melted Swiss cheese. 

Turkey & Swiss with Soup or Salad

A bowl of one of our featured soups or a crisp garden salad with a delicious Turkey & Swiss Melt on sourdough bread. 

The Big Salad

You're free to choose any of our savory, hickory-smoked meats for this salad, including smoked turkey breast, and it joins a big bowl of mixed greens, tomatoes, red onion, cheddar-jack and Provolone cheeses. 

Cowboy Cobb
The King of Salads! A platter of crisp greens generously topped with smoked ham & turkey, crumbled bacon, hard-boiled egg, avocado, tomatoes, red onion, and cheddar-jack & Provolone cheese.

So, what do you think? There's no reason to make yourself wait until Thanksgiving to get a taste of our amazing, hickory-smoked turkey at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.

3 Amazing Places To Visit This Memorial Day Weekend

We're sure everyone out there is making plans for how to celebrate their Memorial Day Weekend. Well, you need to add the best restaurants at the Lake of the Ozarks to those plans! Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is very proud to be a part of the Barrett Restaurant Group, which means we've got 2 sister restaurants in the area offering amazing food plus some pretty incredible live entertainment too! 

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse
When it comes to food on Memorial Day Weekend, you simply have to have some BBQ in there, and we've got the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks! The 3-day holiday weekend gives you some extra time to gather your family and invite your friends to hang out and have some fun. Wobbly Boots BBQ has plenty of room to accommodate you all, but if you prefer to head out to the park or the beach, place your order to go! 

Our award winning, hickory-smoked BBQ is the perfect thing to fill your picnic baskets with this holiday. You can order enough for a few of you, or if you give us some advance notice, order BBQ in bulk and feed the whole clan! In addition to the hickory-smoked goodness of our meats and the tasty, house-made BBQ sauce we have to offer, you can also order all the family-style sides that everyone loves. Of course, if you're willing to leave the lake for a little while and come on into the restaurant, we've got all that for you right here too, plus Sunday you can enjoy Happy Hour ALL DAY LONG!  

Dog Days Bar & Grill
Our oldest "sibling" restaurant is good old Dog Days Bar & Grill. They're getting a bit of a face-lift this season (they're adding on, including a pool!) but along with that new look comes all of their classic dishes that lake area residents and visitors alike have fallen in love with; Chef's Signature Burgers, Crab Legs, Gourmet Tacos, and the best Seafood Nachos in town. This year they've also added some amazing Beach Bowls, featuring healthy, fresh ingredients, like in their Chicken Stir Fry Bowl and Maui Fish Bowl. 

Don't forget about those incredible frozen cocktails too! They feature one bar inside the indoor dining area, plus the great big tiki bar area overlooking that gorgeous Lake of the Ozarks. Between the 2 bars (with more being added this season!) you'll find all your favorite mixed drinks, as well as a large variety of both bottled and draft beer. If you're wanting to get out on the water but didn't bring a watercraft of your own, they've got a BomBay Boat Rental Company location on the Dog Days docks. Last but not least, the live music lineup for Memorial Day Weekend is an impressive one.

The Atomic Sunburns 

Our Cajun sister restaurant can be found a little further down the lake from Dog Days. Shorty Pants Lounge offers the best Cajun food at the Lake of the Ozarks, and Shorty Pants Marina has the best gas dock and C-store in the lake area. We can't forget to mention, too, that they have 2 of the best vacation rental houses next door to the restaurant that can be yours for a few days.

On the food menu, you'll find authentic Cajun flavors featuring rubs and spices direct from Louisiana, as well as quite a few non-Cajun menu options too. People just can't get enough of their world-famous Crab Cakes, or that unbelievable Crawfish Etouffee. Their Prime Rib Burgers and Signature Entrees are also popular menu items. From the bar (you'll find one inside and another outside by the water) you can enjoy muddled Mojitos, Cajun Bloody Marys, an awesome wine selection, lots of ice-cold beer, and much more. 

Shorty Pants Marina & C-Store have gas and other necessities for your boat or jet ski, plus snacks, package liquor, soft drinks, sunglasses, suntan lotion, Shorty Pants gear, and much more. You can even reserve one of their covered dock slips to keep your boat in while you are in town, allowing you to take advantage of the many amenities the marina offers. Oh, and they have awesome live music too!

May is BBQ Month - Come In and Celebrate With Us!

It's that wonderful time of year again when the rest of the world pays as much attention to the amazing food known as BBQ as we do all year long! May is National BBQ Month, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach has the best BBQ to celebrate it with. 

Our unique "hybrid style" of BBQ, influenced by the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. (Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas,) is one reason we have the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks. That amazing house-made BBQ sauce and the friendly service it's all served up with make it even better. Every piece of mouthwatering meat we serve spends the perfect amount of time being slow-smoked over hickory, giving it a savory, full-flavored taste that people can't seem to get enough of. 

Wobbly Boots BBQ has been piling up national awards from some of the most prestigious contests in the country for over 20 years. All of that practice creating delicious dishes benefits you, right here in the lake area. Here's a little bit of what you can expect when you sit down to order. 

Hickory-Smoked Meats

Smoked Meat on a Bun
We serve up some of our incredible meats on a locally-baked kaiser roll, sandwich style, in either 5-ounce or 8-ounce portions. It comes out "wet" (with our amazing house-made BBQ sauce on it) but you can request it "dry" if you wanna add the sauce yourself. All of theses sandwiches are served with one of our homestyle side dishes. 

-Hand-Pulled PorkOur pork is slow-smoked over hickory for 16 hours, then hand-pulled and trimmed. 
-Beef BrisketOur juicy beef brisket is slow-smoked for 10 hours and sliced for maximum tenderness. 
-Turkey Breast100% white meat turkey breast smoked to perfection. 
-Pit Ham: Lean, thin-sliced, and double-smoked.

Smoked Meat Plates
If you prefer your meat without the bun, you can order up your choice of either 1, 2, or 3 different hickory-smoked meats to chow down on. Each plate comes with a piece of Texas toast and one of our amazing side dishes. 

All of the meats listed above are available to choose from, plus Smoked Sausage and Burnt Ends. (Don't miss the Burnt Ends Sandwich on our menu too, topped with our creamy coleslaw!)   

Bad To The Bone BBQ
Those aren't the only meats we cook up in our smoker out back! The following meals are served with Texas toast and your choice of one side dish. 

Baby Back Ribs
A slab of tender, meaty ribs coated with our dry rub & slow-smoked, lightly grilled, and basted with our secret recipe sauce before serving. Available as a full slab or half slab. 

Classic Pork Spare Ribs
For the true BBQ lover! Juicy pork spare ribs coated with our special dry rub and slow-roasted over hickory logs. Served as a full slab or half slab.

Hickory Smoked 1/2 Chicken
Our classic chicken dinner, spice-rubbed, smoked, and glazed in homemade BBQ sauce.

BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo
A delicious combination of mouthwatering 'que! Half a BBQ chicken and a half slab of pork spare ribs. 

Burnt Ends
Double-rubbed and double-smoked brisket tips in a beer BBQ sauce, available while they last! (Don't worry, once they're gone, we'll be making more soon!)  

You can find all of these mouthwatering meats throughout the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse menu within the different dishes. That amazing house-made BBQ sauce goes great with all of it too. As a matter of fact, you can get your very own 16-ounce bottle to take home to flavor all your meals!

Head on over to the best family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and treat the gang to a delicious meal in honor of National BBQ Month. Everyone will be hooked, and then we expect to see each of you many more times throughout the coming year.
