Looking For Variety? Wobbly Boots Roadhouse's Menu Has Got It!

When someone mentions Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, more than likely the first thought that comes to mind is our irresistible hickory-smoked BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks. That's awesome, as long as you also realize that the Boot's got a LOT more to offer than just that award-winning BBQ. 

They say "variety is the spice of life" and baby, the Boot's got it! Dine with us and you're bound to find something to satisfy every diner at your table. 

Award-Winning BBQ

To better explain the extensive variety offered at our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, we'll go ahead and start with the obvious. BBQ at the Boot is a popular choice for diners in the lake area due to the hybrid-style of cooking we've cultivated to create all of those hickory-smoked flavors everyone loves! This style was inspired by the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. - Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas. 

The Boot's creative chefs combined our favorite parts of each of those styles to bring you the hickory-smoked goodness people can't seem to get enough of! Combined with our house recipe BBQ sauce, the taste sensation is truly tough to beat! 

Soup, Sandwiches, & Burgers

We offer a different Soup of the Day each day but every single day you can order our famous Baked Potato Soup. (It's pretty popular around here!) You can enjoy those as a soup/sandwich or soup/salad combo or add a cup to any meal as an upgraded side dish. 

If you'd like to upgrade your sandwich, we've got quite a few choices for you there too, with both BBQ and non-BBQ options! In the Sandwiches & Wraps portion of the menu, you'll find tasty treats like the Crusty Cuban, Hand-Breaded Pork Tenderloin, 
Prime Rib French Dip, Texas Style Club, and our Salmon BLT. 

As for our Black Angus Burgers, each one is made with a special blend of Black Angus chuck, brisket, and short rib cooked on a flat-iron grill. There are 7 different burgers to choose from daily and be sure to ask about our additional Burger of the Week when you come in too.  

Great-Tasting Greens

When you're trying to add more vegetables to your diet, the salads at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse are exactly what you need. Full of fresh, healthy ingredients like mixed greens, tomatoes, avocado, and more, they are filling and satisfying. 

As an added bonus, you don't have to miss out on those hickory-smoked meats when you go the salad route. Most of our salads have a great big, heaping helping of them as one of the main ingredients!  

Savory Seafood

Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp is one of our most popular appetizers plus they pair perfectly with all of our steak dinners. You'll also find lots of other delicious seafood choices throughout the best menu at the Lake of the Ozarks. Some of these choices include a fried Catfish Dinner, Brown Sugar Salmon, the Smoked Salmon Wrap, and an incredible Fried Shrimp Po Boy, just to name a few. 

Southern Comfort Food

We earn our credibility as a family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks in part due to the incredible Southern comfort-style meals that are created in our kitchen. (That and the welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere all around the restaurant.) 

For anyone that enjoys foods "like Mom used to make," we've got what you're looking for! From the Hickory-Smoked Meatloaf to the Chicken Fried Chicken and Open-Faced Smoked Turkey, your mouth will be watering just reading about them on the menu! (Wait 'til you get a taste!)  

Today's blog gives you a good idea of the incredible variety on the menu at our restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we've barely scratched the surface! You can see a full menu on our website and even order Wobbly Boots BBQ to-go online while you're there. Of course, if you'd prefer to dine right here at the Boot and get a good look at the menu in person, well, we'd love to have you over for dinner!

Baby Back Ribs & Spare Ribs - What's the Difference?

We serve a whole lot of amazing hickory-smoked meats at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant. While everyone has a variety of different favorites, BBQ ribs seem to be popular with the majority of diners. Here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, while ribs are an easy dinner decision, which ribs to order may be a bit more difficult to decide.

The best BBQ ribs at the Lake of the Ozarks are available in two different ways at the Boot; Baby Back Ribs and Classic Pork Spare Ribs. Here's a closer look at exactly what to expect from each of those. This information should make it a little easier for you to make up your mind. (Of course, it might also make you want to order them both!) 

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! We then baste them with our secret recipe sauce and serve them up with a big ol' slice of Texas toast and one of our homestyle side dishes to complete the dining experience.

Ribs AND...

Sometimes you might be in the mood for BBQ ribs but also want to try something else on the menu. That's where these terrific combo plates come in handy! 

Ribbies & Wings
Two of our most popular items on the same plate! 4 individual pork spare ribs with our house recipe BBQ sauce and 5 Wobbly Wings with your choice of sauce. 

The Wobbly Boots Sampler
Even more of some of the best of what we have to offer! 4 onion rings, 4 bacon-wrapped shrimp, 4 Wobbly Wings, and 4 spare ribs slathered in BBQ sauce. 

BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo
The hearty meal offers a delicious combination of mouthwatering 'que! You get a half BBQ chicken and a half-slab of pork spare ribs, both glazed in our house-made sauce, plus a piece of Texas toast and a homestyle side dish. 

As you can see, we've got those irresistible ribs as both appetizers and full meals at our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. That means no matter the level of your hunger, we can satisfy it perfectly with BBQ ribs at the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse! Swing on by soon and give 'em a taste. You're going to love them!

Celebrate National Pig Day With These Pleasantly Perfect Pork Dishes!

National Pig Day is coming up next week on Monday, March 1. The gang at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach has a few very delicious ideas on how to observe this particular holiday. Among our wide variety of mouthwatering hickory-smoked meats, pork is a very popular choice. Here are some of the fantastic ways you'll find this tasty animal at our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.  


Our appetizer menu has a couple of irresistible pork items on it. This first dish is even one of our Happy Hour specials 6 days a week!

  • BBQ Pork Nachos
    This great big plate of tortilla chips is covered with our spicy queso cheese sauce, pulled pork, baked beans, cheddar-jack cheese, tomatoes, and onions all served with a side of jalapenos. Enjoy this tasty treat as a full order or a half-order.
  • Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
    Some might assume the shrimp is the focus of this dish, but their fantastic flavor is elevated by the presence of everyone's favorite pork product - bacon! This order comes with 6 large Gulf shrimp individually wrapped with our hickory-smoked bacon and grilled to perfection. They are great plain but also taste incredible tossed in our chipotle Buffalo sauce. 

Smoked Meats

Our hickory-smoked meats can be ordered on a bun in 5-oz or 8-oz portions or you may choose to enjoy them on a plate without the bread instead. If you're in the mood for "the other white meat", we've got it in two ways for you here. Our BBQ is always served wet (aka - sauced) but feel free to ask for it "dry" and add your own preferred amount of our house-recipe BBQ sauce.

    Slow-smoked, hand-pulled, and trimmed
  • Pit Ham
  • Lean, thin-sliced, and double-smoked

Pork Sandwiches

You'll find a long list of hard-to-resist pork sandwiches on the menu at our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. In addition to the smoked meat sandwiches mentioned above, these delicious dishes are available too. 

  • Hand-Breaded Pork Tenderloin
    An Iowa tradition mastered perfectly right here in mid-Missouri! This generous cut of pork tenderloin is hand-breaded and fried to a golden brown, served with lettuce, tomato, and onion.
  • Southern Style Pork
    A pulled pork sandwich with a Carolina twist! It's topped with our creamy coleslaw.
  • Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich
    A juicy 7-oz. chicken breast topped with grilled ham, teriyaki sauce, Swiss cheese, lettuce, and grilled pineapple.
  • Wrangler Wrap
    A wheat tortilla stuffed with three of our signature items; pulled pork, baked beans, and creamy coleslaw. 
  • Crusty Cuban
    House-pulled pork and pit ham, plus pickles, house mustard, and Swiss cheese served on a hoagie roll and pressed to perfection.
  • Texas Style Club
    Ham, bacon, turkey, lettuce, tomato, Provolone cheese, and roasted pepper and tomato aioli served on wheatberry bread. 
  • Big Texas BLT
    This homestyle sandwich is loaded with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo all stacked between two pieces of Texas toast. 


While the burgers themselves are made from a special blend of black Angus, chuck, brisket, and short rib, the following burger creations have some of our pork added on top along with a few more irresistible toppings. 

  • 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. 
  • Ham, Mushroom, & Swiss Burger
    Our famous Farm Boy Burger topped with pit ham, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. 
  • Beale Street Burger
    A tasty tribute to the South! Our fantastic burger topped with pulled pork and creamy coleslaw. 


Going a step beyond appetizers and sandwiches, the following meals are all "must-try" menu items when you dine at Wobbly Boots BBQ! (Of course, we say that about all of our menu items but since it's true, we just can't help ourselves!) 

  • Country Fried Pork
    Southern comfort food at its finest! Our famous hand-breaded pork tenderloin served open-faced with green beans, smashed potatoes, and country-style cream gravy.

  • Classic Pork Spare Ribs

A Look at How We Create the Best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks

When your stomach is rumbling and you're on the lookout for the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, we honestly believe that you will find that at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, MO. Of course, you might assume we're a little biased but we've got actions to back up those words! 

Our award-winning BBQ dishes come from specialty recipes we've perfected over time, high-quality ingredients, and an attention to detail that creates a mouthwatering meal you won't soon forget. How do we do it? Keep reading to find out!

A Unique Hybrid BBQ Style

The type of BBQ you'll discover at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse was inspired by many different BBQ masters from around the country. We lovingly refer to it as a "hybrid style" of BBQ combining elements of the dishes found in the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. - Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas. 

We took our favorite parts away from each of these styles and put them all together to create a taste that people can't seem to get enough of! Luckily for all of you, we're open 7 days a week, year-round, and smoke our meats on a daily basis so it's always ready for you to enjoy. 

Smoked Over Hickory

The key to creating the Wobbly Boots BBQ flavor that is so popular around these parts is the hickory-smoked goodness we infuse into each bite. First, we slow-smoke our succulent meats over hickory, allowing the incredible flavors of each type of meat to come through boldly. Our clever chefs have figured out exactly how long each meat needs to spend in the smoker to become its flavorful best.  

Next, those meats are coated (or served with a side of) our extraordinary house-recipe BBQ sauce. The end result is a plate full of hickory-smoked BBQ that will leave you fully satisfied yet anxious to come back again for more!  

So Many Choices!

You can enjoy our hickory-smoked meats either between two slices of bread or piled high on a plate next to one of our homestyle side dishes. We also create quite a few BBQ entrees that are every bit as irresistible. Here's a look at a few of our offerings. 

Smoked Meat on a Bun
You can enjoy a 5-oz. or 8-oz. portion of your choice of our BBQ meats served on a locally-baked kaiser roll with your choice of our many side dishes. These sandwiches are always served "wet" (sauced) but feel free to ask for the sauce on the side if you like. Meats include:

  • Pulled Pork
  • Southern Style Pork
    Pulled pork topped with creamy coleslaw.
  • Burnt Ends
  • Turkey Breast
  • Beef Brisket
  • Texas 2-Step
  • Smothered Brisket
  • Pit Ham
  • Combo Sandwich
    4-oz. each of any two of our smoked meats listed above. 

Smoked Meat Plates 
Here you can build your own plate filled with the hickory-smoked meats of your choice. Each dinner is served with a piece of Texas toast and one homestyle side dish. 

  • Jumbo Meat Plate
    A jumbo portion of your favorite meat. 
  • Double Meat Combo
    Two portions of your choosing.
  • BBQ Trio
    Try the original trio of pork, beef, and sausage or select three of your favorites for a hearty meal.

BBQ Dinners
The "Bad to the Bone BBQ" section of our menu adds the deliciousness of two more hickory-smoked classics - ribs and chicken. Each of these tasty entrees is served with a homestyle side dish and a slice of Texas toast.

  • Baby Back Ribs
  • Classic Pork Spare Ribs
  • Hickory-Smoked Half-Chicken
