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.

The Perfect Thing For Graduation Parties & Family Reunions Is Wobbly Boots Catering!

It's that time of year when graduation parties are happening nearly every weekend, and summer family reunions are in the planning stages. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach can take care of one big part of the party preparations for you with the best catering at the Lake of the Ozarks. You've got plenty of other tasks to take care of, so let us handle the cooking. 



Food From 3 Creative Kitchens
As a part of the Barrett Restaurant Group, we not only have the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks to offer for your celebration. The Cajun flavors from Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina, as well as the culinary delights from Dog Days Bar & Grill, are all options when we cater for you. As a matter of fact, if you have something different in mind, our creative chefs can work with you to come up with a menu that will please everyone in your group. 



Any Event, Any Time, Any Size
We mentioned graduation parties and family reunions at the beginning of this blog due to the time of the year, but those aren't the only events we can handle. Whether it's a gathering for a few friends or a gigantic party for 500 people, we can feed them all, and they will be fed well! Birthdays, holidays, office parties, weddings, and more, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktail hour, break time, and any other meals in between.     

We Deliver
You're welcome to call in an order and pick it up yourself, but if there is a lot of food involved, we're happy to bring it all to you instead. We'll cook it up, hot and fresh, then load it into the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse catering van. You can't miss it coming down the street, and your friends will be excited when they see it parked at the venue.  



We Can Host The Party Too
If you haven't picked out a venue yet, and your party is the right size, you can host it in the private room at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant. The room can be closed off from the rest of the restaurant, and the best part is, not only will we prepare and serve the food, but we'll take care of the cleanup when the party's over too! 

The room has a charming fireplace (more for looks this time of year, but it's great on a chilly night) and a comfortable, down home feel, and it also has close access to the outdoor patio. There are a few televisions in there too, in case any sports fans in your group want to catch a game. 



Book Your Party Today!
Once you have a date in mind, give us a call at 573-348-2277 and get your event on our catering calendar. All of our catering at the Lake of the Ozarks is done on a first come, first served basis, so the earlier you book the better. 

We'll work with you to come up with a customized menu, and you will need to provide a final guest count one week before the event. After that, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and let Wobbly Boots Roadhouse serve you and all of your party guests the most delicious meal you've ever tasted!

3 Reasons To Stay At The Boot After Your BBQ Is Gone

The order was placed, the food was served, and now you've just finished a heaping plate of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, but that doesn't mean you have to leave! The fun doesn't need to end when your meal is finished at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. We've still got a few things in store for you that you're going to love. Here are 3 reasons to stay at the Boot after your BBQ is gone.  



#1 - Have Dessert
We have some deliciously tempting sweets to follow your BBQ meal, if you can manage to save some room, that is. It may take a little pre-planning so you don't fill up completely. One solution would be to take home part of your meal in a doggy bag to enjoy later. (Our BBQ makes for some pretty tasty leftovers!) Another way to make sure you have room for dessert... do something a little different and order it first! The sweet treats we have for you are:

  • Hershey's Chocolate Cobbler
  • Rustic Apple Tart
  • Root Beer Float
  • Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie
  • Red Velvet Cheesecake
  • Salted Caramel or Premium Vanilla Ice Cream


#2 - Order A Cocktail
We'd love to have you extend your stay and stick around for a cocktail with us. It's a great way to relax and let that food settle. Our fully stocked bar can mix up just about any drink your heart desires, including a few variations on the classic Moscow Mule. Wobbly Boots BBQ also stocks an impressive selection of whiskey, and there's a whopping 21 ice-cold and refreshing beers on tap too.  



#3 - Catch A Game
We're well into baseball season, plus NHL and NBA playoffs are happening right now. Those games are going to go on longer than it will take you to chow down on a plate of BBQ, so plan to hang out after lunch or dinner and take in the rest of the game. As a matter of fact, there's bound to be another great sporting event coming on after that one is over. With 21 televisions conveniently located all around the restaurant, including our giant projection screen, this is most definitely the best place to watch sports at the Lake of the Ozarks.   



Share Your Experience 
We do our very best to make sure that your dining experience at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant is the best it can possibly be. If you've cleaned your plate, it's a pretty good indicator that you enjoyed your food. We know for a fact when you take a moment to share your experience with others by leaving a review for Wobbly Boots Roadhouse online. There are lots of places where you can leave a review: Facebook, Yelp TripAdvisor, Google, OpenTable... Just choose the site you trust for your own information about restaurants and leave your review there. For an incredible afternoon or evening full of good food and fun, you can always hang out with us at the Boot!

Our Newest Delicacy - Burnt Ends at the Boot!

Just when you thought the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks couldn't get any better, we add a new delicacy to our list of amazing dishes! Many of you have been asking for them, and now all of you can get Burnt Ends at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. (While they last, that is...)



What is a Burnt End? 
The name sounds like an overcooked mistake, but this savory dish is anything but that! Burnt ends are actually the incredibly flavorful pieces of meat cut from the point half of a smoked brisket. 

Brisket at Wobbly Boots BBQ spends a large amount of time in the smoker to give it the amazing flavor that it's well-known for. The pointy tips end up cooking faster than the center, and they dry up looking charred and burnt, thus the name. They may not be the prettiest food, but they are definitely one of the most mouthwatering meats you will ever have the pleasure of putting into your mouth!



A long time ago, most cooks would throw away the burnt ends or use them to flavor other dishes. A few kitchens even gave them away from free. Eventually, some wise chef realized what a culinary treat these burnt ends could be. The extra cooking time allows for an extremely intense, delicious smoky flavor. 

Here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, our burnt ends are double-smoked, double-rubbed, and seared. Every enticing beef chunk is carved right from the brisket point, and then we serve them up with our award-winning house recipe beer BBQ sauce. Due to the extra cooking time, burnt ends are always served wet (with sauce,) never dry. 



A Rare(ish) Treat
While burnt ends are now an everyday menu item at the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may miss out if you're too slow to order them. There are only so many ends to serve on each brisket we smoke, so once a batch is gone, you'll have to wait until we smoke another brisket to get more. (Don't worry, we sell a LOT of brisket, so we're making burnt ends quite often!) 

Our Southern Comfort Food offers Burnt Ends served on a plate alongside one of our amazing side dishes. You can also find them on our Down Home Sandwiches menu under a healthy serving of cole slaw between a bun, also served with one of our delicious side dishes.



Come on in to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse soon and give these unbelievable burnt ends a try. Even the pickiest BBQ fan will fall in love with a plate full of these! Just one more reason that when you're craving BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, the Boot is the only place to go.

Surprise Bartenders At The Boot For Our Can-Am Games Social Event

The Lake of the Ozarks has snagged another exciting event. The Can-Am Police-Fire Games will be taking place all over the lake area in 2018, but Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is bringing a little bit of the excitement to you early on Thursday, April 20, 2017 with a community social event to raise funds and awareness. We'll have a local fireman and/or policemen behind the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks for a couple of hours serving your drinks and collecting those tips.

What Are The Can-Am Games?
These amazing games are put on to promote physical fitness and camaraderie among law enforcement, fire service, EMS, and protective services personnel and agencies. Groups from both Canada and the United States come together to compete in a variety of games.

In 1977, officials from the state police and fire games out of Washington and Oregon joined with a police-fire sports group from Western Canada. They formed an organization that put together a multi-sport event for police officers and fire fighters. This continued on an annual basis until 1996.

The games became so popular and they grew so large, the group reorganized itself and renamed the event the Can-Am Police-Fire Games as a better representation of where the participating athletes were coming from. They even expanded their list of eligible competitors to add emergency responders and protective services, including Emergency Medical Service providers, Homeland Security, Border Patrol, Corrections, and more. A wide range of competitive sports are tackled in these games, including swimming, ice hockey, archery, track & field, softball, and even poker, to name a few.    



Big Excitement For The Lake
In 2018, this exciting 6-day sporting event will be taking place right here at our very own Lake of the Ozarks! As a matter of fact, they've even got us scheduled to host again in 2020! All the more reason to show them some great local hospitality while they are here.

Host cities are required to make their bids for the games up to 5 years in advance so that they are able to see at least 2 year's worth of games in action before hosting their own. As of right now, we are expecting anywhere between 1,000-1,500 participants to compete in 49 different events. These events will take place all over the lake area, including Laurie, Sunrise Beach, Camdenton, Osage Beach, and Lake Ozark, plus a few in Springfield and Lebanon. Any profits made from these games will go to benefit Special Olympics Missouri.  



Join Us At The Boot  
Your favorite BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is doing our part to help bring the Can-Am Police-Fire Games to town by hosting a social event this month. On Thursday, April 20, 2017 we'll have a surprise celebrity bartender mixing drinks alongside one of the Boot's very own bartenders. A local fireman and/or police officer will spend a couple of hours slinging drinks, and all of the tips raised behind the bar during this social will go towards bringing these fantastic games to the lake. Join the rest of the community at Wobbly Boots BBQ for this social and help the efforts to throw the best Can-Am Police-Fire Games that the organization has ever seen.

Gourmet Sandwich Selections at the Boot

If last week's blog featuring our Delicious Down Home Sandwiches & Wraps at the Boot made you hungry enough to come on in and join us for a bite at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, then you've already gotten a peek at our entire menu. For those of you that were too busy to make it in, today we're highlighting the Gourmet Sandwiches & Wraps that we have to offer. 

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, which means that they have the knowledge and expertise to make critical judgments about the taste of something. 

When used as an adjective, like when describing the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, gourmet means that high quality or exotic ingredients are used, and the food is prepared in an extremely specialized and skilled way. Our chefs are most definitely highly skilled when it comes to whipping up something amazing and delicious. Even though the incredible flavor of everything that comes out of our kitchen could be considered gourmet, we've chosen to give the following menu favorites that specific title.
