If You Had To Choose... Baby Back Ribs OR Pork Spare Ribs?

The best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks comes out of the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse kitchen in Osage Beach year-round, 7 days a week. You'll find lots of delicious dishes to choose from that are seasoned with our special dry rub, hickory-smoked to perfection, and served with a healthy helping of our housemade BBQ sauce.



One of those menu items in particular, our amazing ribs, is a staple for any restaurant that claims to specialize in BBQ. Here at Wobbly Boots BBQ, we actually serve two different types of ribs; Baby Back Ribs and Classic Pork Spare Ribs. Some people have a strong opinion about which type they prefer. Here's some information on each one that might help you decide which to order. 

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! 
If you're not in the mood to order the best hickory-smoked BBQ ribs at the Lake of the Ozarks for your main dish, consider having them as an appetizer instead. We've got a couple of different combo appetizers that include this tasty treat. There's also a rib combo dinner that allows you to enjoy two magnificent meats on one plate.

Ribbies & Wings
Two of our most popular items on the same 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 spare ribs slathered in BBQ sauce, four Wobbly wings, four onion rings, and four bacon wrapped shrimp. A mountain of food suitable for a big meal or sharing!  

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


It doesn't really matter how you choose to get your rib-fix on, but where you satisfy those cravings makes a huge difference! Make sure you head on over to the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for a plateful of our irresistible, hickory-smoked ribs. No matter which type you prefer, Baby Back or Spare, as long as they're from Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, you know both types are bound to be incredibly good!

Food & Fun for the Whole Family at the Lake of the Ozarks

Dinnertime is an excellent time to catch up and reconnect with the family. Since August happens to be Family Fun Month, our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant has a few reasons why bringing the gang to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach is both fun and delicious for the whole family. You get some quality time out together AND fantastic food to enjoy. Win-win!



Family-Friendly Atmosphere 
Our smoke-free family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has plenty of seating for groups both large and small. That means you can come in with just you and the kids or invite Grandma, Grandpa, all the cousins, and everyone else along to join in the family fun.

Our friendly staff will make sure you are well taken care of and they’re always happy to offer suggestions if you can’t decide which dish to order. As a bonus, if you have a family full of sports fans, we’ve got 21 TVs and a giant projection screen so you can all cheer on your favorite teams together while you eat.



Foods Kids Love
Kids can be picky about what they're willing to eat and many young children have not yet developed a love for BBQ like the grownups. That's not a problem at Wobbly Boots BBQ because our kids' menu is filled with items that children love.

Give them a dab of our house-recipe BBQ sauce for dipping and they may be well on their way to a lifelong love of our hickory-smoked menu items. Until they're completely ready for that, here are the tasty treats we have for kids ages 12 and under. 

  • Kids Burger with Fries
  • Kids Chicken Tenders with Fries
  • Grilled Cheese with Fries
  • Mini Corn Dogs with Fries
  • Pork Sandwich with Fries
  • Cheese Quesadilla
  • Mac & Cheese Boat

Grown-Up Favorites Too
There are a lot of places that children love to eat that don’t really offer much for adults to enjoy. That’s not the case at the Boot! You can get just as excited as the kids when you dine with us because our menu is filled with down-home deliciousness that simply can’t be beat.

Whether you’re in the mood for hickory-smoked meats, classic BBQ dinners, big fresh salads, down-home sandwiches, or Black Angus burgers, you’ll find all of those plus a whole lot more on our extensive menu.


Finger-Lickin' Fun
Once you start adding our mouthwatering housemade BBQ sauce to a meal, things tend to get a little messy. (Face it, most kids love getting messy!) The best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks tastes so good, you simply can’t take the time to wipe your mouth between every bite… that would take too long to get to the next bite!

The more you get on your hands, it’s literally “finger-licking good!” Let the kids have some messy fun at our place instead of yours. (You’re more than welcome to join them!”) Don’t worry, it washes off easily, and we’ve got lots of wet wipes handy.



Take Some Tasty Fun Home
Relive some of the dinnertime fun you all had together by picking up a bottle of our house recipe BBQ sauce before you leave. Carryout is always an option too, allowing you to spend extra time with the family at home because you don't have to spend any time in the kitchen.  


The next time your family is trying to decide where to go for dinner, just say "Wobbly Boots Roadhouse!" After hearing that, the kids will be racing you to the car! 

School will be back in session soon and everyone will be busy getting back to a routine. Before the happens, join us at the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for some quality family time with each other, making memories together in the most delicious way possible!
