The Wonderful Wraps of Wobbly Boots Roadhouse

A few weeks ago our blog featured "Down-Home Sandwiches So Delicious, You'll See Them Again in Your Dreams!" (That link will take you back to it, in case you missed it the first time around.) There were a few Wobbly Boots Roadhouse items from the sandwiches section of our menu that were left out but today, we're going to give you a closer look at those. 

Our hearty wraps have everything you expect in a sandwich on the inside but on the outside, instead of bread, you'll find a tasty tortilla. This allows us to bundle up all of that tastiness into one easy-to-hold meal. 

Wrap Origins

People around the world have been eating wraps in some form or another for a very long time. The wrap as we know it today began gaining popularity in the 1990s and most likely originated in California as a unique version of a Tex-Mex-style burrito. 

Stories vary about who actually deserves the credit for beginning the wrap "trend." One tale says it was first served in the early 80s in southern California, while another says this food originated in New York City, and still another version gives credit to a cafe in Connecticut. 

One of those stories states that the first wrap served in their particular restaurant wasn't because they'd added it as a new menu item but rather it happened because they ran out of bread! (Quite a few of the best foods were created by accident!) 

Wobbly Boots Wraps

Here at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant, we've got 5 amazing wraps on the menu for you to choose from. Each one also comes with your choice of one of our homestyle side dishes as well. 

Grilled Turkey Wrap
The original Wobbly Boots' wrap! Lightly grilled turkey breast served in a warm wheat tortilla stuffed full of bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar jack cheese, and ranch dressing.

Turkey Avocado Wrap
Hickory-smoked 100% turkey breast served in a wheat tortilla with avocado, roasted pepper & tomato aioli, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar jack cheese. 

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

Smoked Salmon Wrap
Delicate house-smoked salmon paired with a lemon-caper cream cheese and served in a wheat tortilla with lettuce, tomato, and red onion. 

Buffalo Chicken Wrap
Breaded chicken tenders tossed in our hot chipotle sauce served in a wheat tortilla with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar jack cheese.  


The next time your stomach starts rumbling, head on over to Wobbly Boots BBQ in Osage Beach for one of these "sandwiches" all wrapped up, nice and neat, in a delicious bundle. Each of the five different wraps is equally delicious and chock-full of so many mouthwatering ingredients, you'll have a meal that is both tasty and satisfying!

Meatloaf Gets a Delicious Upgrade at the Boot!

 We love our food "holidays" here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. If you bother to look for these special days on a calendar, there is something being celebrated every day of the year and most days, it involves food. YUM! 

Last week's blog covered National Pulled Pork Day (did you celebrate?) and this week, we've got National Meatloaf Appreciation Day coming up on Sunday, October 18. Sure, meatloaf sometimes gets a bad rap but anyone that thinks they don't like it has obviously never tasted the amazing smoked meatloaf served at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant

Today, we've got a quick look for you at the ancient origins of meatloaf followed by an irresistible look at our very own special homestyle version from the kitchen at the Boot. 

Meatloaf's Ancient Origins

The origin of this delicious loaf of meat dates back as early as 5th century Rome. The recipe found in one of their ancient cookbooks was made by mixing chopped meat, bread, and wine. Meatloaf is also a traditional dish of Germany, Scandinavia, and Belgium, and it has been linked as a "cousin" of the Dutch meatball.

The origin of modern-day American meatloaf comes from a dish called "scrapple." German-Americans in Pennsylvania made this by combining leftover pork scraps and trimmings with cornmeal and other seasonings. This particular recipe was pan-fried before being served.

The meatloaf of today didn't begin showing up in cookbooks until the late 19th century. It was a very popular dish during the Great Depression because it gave families the ability to stretch inexpensive meats into a large meal. Lots of filler ingredients could be added to make it serve more people, and many housewives went so far as to create "meatless" meatloaves.

Meatloaf Gets an Upgrade 

You'll find a marvelous version of meatloaf in the Southern Comfort Foods section of the menu at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant. Comfort food is a term that is used to describe dishes that are fairly simple to prepare and often have some type of nostalgia associated with them for the diner. You know, something like Mom or Grandma used to make.

Well, the incredible type of meatloaf that we serve is NOT your grandma's meatloaf! Also, while the ingredients for meatloaf are fairly easy to mix together, the special touches we add to ours is anything but simple. 

The biggest difference that makes the most mouthwatering impact is the fact that our meatloaf is slow-smoked over hickory. Hickory-smoked ground chuck is seasoned with fresh veggies and savory spices. Once it has reached the perfect degree of doneness, we serve it up open-faced with brown gravy, smashed potatoes, and green beans. The perfect meal for a fall day!  

More Homestyle Comfort

This amazing smoked meatloaf is in good company in the Southern Comfort Foods section of the menu at Wobbly Boots BBQ. You may also want to give these hot and delicious dishes a try this fall too. 

Loaded Baker
A huge baked potato stuffed with your choice of pork, beef, ham, or turkey plus cheddar-jack cheese, crumbled bacon, and green onions.

Prime Rib Hot Beef
Shaved prime rib served on bread with smashed potatoes, beef gravy, and green beans. 

Open-Faced Brisket
Slow-smoked brisket served open-faced with smashed potatoes, beef gravy, and green beans. 


Chicken Fried Chicken
Hand-breaded chicken breast served with smashed potatoes, country-style gravy, and green beans. 

Country Fried Pork
Our famous hand-breaded pork tenderloin served open-faced with smashed potatoes, country-style gravy, and green beans.

Open-Faced Smoked Turkey
Delicious smoked turkey served open-faced on white bread with smashed potatoes, turkey gravy, and green beans. 

If you think you're not a fan of meatloaf, we challenge you to give the smoked meatloaf at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse a try. It's a taste sensation that is bound to change your mind. Of course, if you're not up for that challenge, we've got plenty of other amazing menu items to satisfy all of your cravings.

The Tastiest Way to Celebrate National Pulled Pork Day is at The Boot!

National Pulled Pork Day lands on Monday, October 12 this year. The crew here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is pretty excited about that because, when you spend as much time as we do around the best smoked meats at the Lake of the Ozarks, you truly start to appreciate them! (Our regular diners totally get that!) 

Our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant offers an excellent variety of savory smoked meats, including beef brisket, turkey breast, pit ham, smoked sausage, wings, ribs, chicken, and more. The mouthwatering pulled pork is quite popular among these and, as you will see from today's blog, a very versatile meat. Here are some of the many delicious ways that pulled pork is used at the Boot.   

Pulled Pork - On a Plate or On a Bun?

The irresistible pulled pork at Wobbly Boots BBQ is used as an ingredient on many dishes throughout our menu but it's every bit as enjoyable on its own! We make it so incredibly tasty by slow-smoking it over hickory for 16 hours. After that, it is hand-pulled and trimmed. 

This pulled pork can be ordered as a sandwich on a locally-baked Kaiser roll in either a 5-oz. or 8-oz. serving. You can also enjoy it as a BBQ dinner plate by itself or joined by some of our other amazing smoked meat choices. 

More Pulled Pork Menu Items

As we mentioned earlier, pulled pork at the Boot is also used as an ingredient in lots of different menu items. For example: 

BBQ Pork Nachos
Corn tortilla chips covered with spicy queso cheese sauce, pulled pork, baked beans, cheddar jack cheese, tomatoes, and onions all served with a side of jalapenos. 

This popular dish is available as a full order or half-order and if you come in during Happy Hour each Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm or all day on Sunday, you can enjoy these at a discounted price!

The Big Salad
This gigantic salad (which also comes in a smaller size) gives you a choice of a delicious meat topping (and pulled pork is one of those) and adds that to a bowl of mixed greens topped with tomatoes, red onion, cheddar jack cheese, and Provel cheese with your choice of dressing. 

Loaded Baker
A huge potato stuffed with your choice of pulled pork, beef, ham, or turkey that is topped with cheddar jack cheese, crumbled bacon, and green onions. 

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

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

Southern Style Pork
A pulled pork sandwich with a Carolina twist! We top this one with our creamy coleslaw. 

Beal Street Burger
Here we have a delicious tribute to the South! Our incredible Farm Boy Black Angus Burger is topped with both creamy coleslaw and our savory pulled pork. 

While National Pulled Pork Day is a perfect day to celebrate this mouthwatering smoked meat, you don't have to wait until then! We serve these delicious dishes 7 days a week at the Boot along with a lot more of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks. Come on in whenever you're feeling hungry. The crew at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach will make sure you are well-fed in the most delicious ways possible!

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks, Bogeys & Beer Golf Tournament 2020

Tournament Day

That's because you'll be doing your part to raise some much-needed funds for a few well-deserving local organizations. Proceeds raised this year will benefit Lamb House, Kid's Harbor, the CADV, and the Dan Hagedorn Memorial Scholarship.

Wobbly Boots BBQ Voted Home of the Lake of the Ozarks' Best BBQ & More!

Lake Lifestyles Magazine recently revealed the winners of their annual Best of the Lake reader's choice poll. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is very excited to have received not just one but four of those prestigious dining awards! Here's a closer look at each of the categories we are very thankful to have been voted as the best. 


Best BBQ

We have always said that the Boot has the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks and once again this year, lake area diners agree! Careful attention to detail over the years has helped us to create our award-winning BBQ style. It was inspired by the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. - Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas. 

From that amazing inspiration, our chefs came up with the perfect recipes to make our hickory-smoked meats the most flavorful food you've ever tasted! They also came up with our very special house-recipe BBQ sauce that enhances the smoked flavors of our meats in the most amazing way. 


Best Ribs

One of the many classic BBQ dishes you'll find on the menu at Wobbly Boots BBQ is ribs. First, we coat ours with an extra-special dry rub made right here at the Boot. Next, they are slow-smoked over hickory until they are the perfect degree of tender and juicy. Lastly, you have to decide which rib dish you're going to order during that visit!


Baby Back Ribs
A slab of tender, meaty ribs coated in our dry rub, slow-smoked, lightly grilled, and then basted with our secret recipe sauce before serving. This dinner comes with a big piece of Texas toast plus one of our homestyle side dishes and is available with either a full slab or a half slab of ribs.

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. These ribs are basted with our secret recipe sauce before serving up with a piece of Texas toast and one of our irresistible side dishes. Available with either a full slab or a half slab of ribs.  

BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo
A delicious combination of mouthwatering 'que! This dinner comes with Texas toast and a side dish but the stars of the plate area half a BBQ chicken and a half slab of pork spare ribs both glazed with our house-recipe sauce.  

Ribbies & Wings and The Wobbly Boots Sampler
Read more about these awesome appetizers in the next section of today's blog!

Best Wings

Our Wobbly Wings have been the talk of the town since they debuted on the menu many years ago! Jumbo chicken wings are coated in our house dry rub and then slow-roasted in our hickory pit for optimal flavor. 

These chicken wings taste incredible straight out of the smoker with no sauce at all but when you're in the mood for sauce on your wings, we've got 5 different ways for you to enjoy them. 

  • BBQ - Our house recipe sauce. A great addition to anything. 
  • Original - A mustard-based sauce like no other. Try it and you'll be hooked!
  • Chipotle Buffalo - Our version of a traditional Buffalo sauce. 
  • Teriyaki - Sweet and delicious!
  • Trashed - Our smoked wings deep-fried before serving. 

These incredible wings show up in a couple of our combo plates on the appetizer menu as well. 

Ribbies & Wings
Two of our most popular people's choice-winning items - 4 individual pork spare ribs with our house recipe BBQ sauce and 6 Wobbly Wings with your choice of sauce. 

The Wobbly Boots Sampler
Some of the best of what we have to offer! 4 Wobbly Wings, 4 onion rings, 4 bacon wrapped shrimp, and 4 spare ribs slathered in BBQ sauce. A mountain of food suitable for a big meal or sharing! 


Best Nachos

Another incredible appetizer that has won the hearts of lake area diners is our impressive plate full of BBQ Pork Nachos. We start with crispy tortilla chips, as you'd expect, but from there we get deliciously creative. 

Those chips are covered with spicy queso cheese sauce, baked beans, cheddar jack cheese, tomatoes, onions, and a heaping helping of our hickory-smoked pulled pork. Each plate is served with a side of jalapenos. 

Our BBQ nachos are a lot to handle on your own so we do offer them as a half-order too. If you join us during Happy Hour any Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm and all day on Sundays, you can enjoy a full order of our nachos for $2 off! (If you're not hungry enough to eat those on your own, bring a friend along to help!)  


Thank you to everyone that voted for Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in this year's Best of the Lake Awards. For anyone that is new to our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, these incredible dishes barely scratch the surface of the fantastic menu items coming out of the kitchen daily at the Boot. Come on by soon and give us a try. We know you're going to love it here!
