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!
