A Must-See Christmas Movie List

The best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks will be closed on Christmas Day so that we can spend it with our loved ones.  Wobbly Boots Roadhouse will be open Christmas Eve, closed Christmas Day, then back open for the weekend. Since we won't be there (for one day only) to entertain you, we decided to list a few of our favorite holiday movies to keep you busy.  If there are any on this list that you haven't seen yet, we highly recommend that you check them out.  

Rudolph & Hermey the Elf (photo from Wikipedia)


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, The Year Without a Santa Clause... or any other of these stop-action and animated Christmas classics.  You seriously never get too old to enjoy watching one of these old favorites again. 

A Christmas Carol
There have been many versions of the Charles Dickens classic novel brought to the big screen.  While the story itself is a classic, you should be able to find a perfect version of this one for any age and everyone's taste in movies  

Miracle on 34th Street
A very nice old gentleman claiming to be Santa Claus is institutionalized.  A litle girl convinces a young lawyer to prove to the court that this is actually the real Santa.  

It's a Wonderful Life
A frustrated businessman is convinced that the world would be a better place without him in it, and an angel shows him how very wrong he is.  

A Christmas Story
A 1940's family goes about a regular Christmas holiday for most people of the time while young Ralphie comes up with ways to talk his parents, his teacher, and Santa himself into believing that he is old enough for a Red Ryder BB gun.  You'll probably see your own family members in these characters, and you'll definitely have a good laugh.    


An adopted elf, who turns out to be much larger than all of the other elves at the North Pole, is sent to the U.S to find his real father and his own true identity.  The best way to describe how silly this adventure gets is to mention the star, Will Ferrell.  Now you have some idea of how much you will be rolling on the floor laughing!

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
This time around the Griswold family tries to have a happy holiday vacation at home, but their odd relatives plus their own crazy antics turn everything into a big, hilarious disaster.  Chevy Chase once again leads this family through a funny and thoroughly entertaining movie.    

Yet another twist on Dicken's "A Christmas Carol," this time around a selfish t.v. executive played by Bill Murray learns some valuable lessons on Christmas Eve from the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future.  

Just Friends
You can't go home for Christmas as an adult without feeling like a kid again. When Ryan Reynolds' character comes face-to-face with his childhood crush, he really resorts back into his old high school self and straight back into the "friend zone."  


Home Alone
Kids never seem to get tired of watching 8-year-old Kevin defend his home against sneaky burglars when his family accidentally leaves him home alone while they go on vacation.  

The Muppet Christmas Carol
The Muppets put their famous, entertaining spin on a holiday classic tale.  It's a fun way to introduce children to the story of Ebenezer Scrooge.   

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
It doesn't matter if it's the classic cartoon or the live-action version, Dr. Seuss's Christmas story about how a cranky Grinch learns the meaning of holiday is always a favorite.  

The Polar Express
Beautifully animated and masterfully told, this children's book turned movie tells the tale of a young boy's magical adventure by train to the North Pole.  

Jingle All the Way
Parents will empathize with the familiar gift-buying panic while kids will get a good laugh.  Two dads race across town to find the hottest toy of the season for their sons after finding out they are sold out everywhere.  


These are now Christmas classics in their own way, but make sure any kids around are sound asleep in another room before pushing play.  These are geared toward a much more (im)mature audience.  

Bad Santa
A conman and his partner decide to pose as Santa and his little helper so that they have access to stores to rob on Christmas Eve.  After accidentally befriending a young troubled boy, attitudes begin to change.  

A Very Harold & Kumar 3-D Christmas
These two buddies with perpetual "munchies" accidentally burn down Harold's father-in-law's prize Christmas tree, and it seems to keep getting worse for them after that.  

Die Hard
You might think of this as more of an action movie than a Chrismtas one, but it was on every single top Christmas movie list we looked at, plus it's simply awesome!  John McClane saves several hostages during a Christmas party in a skyscraper.  Yippee-Ki-Yay...

We bet even the big man himself sits down to enjoy a few of these holiday favorites after a long night of delivering gifts.  Sit back, rest up on Christmas Day, and enjoy a movie marathon of some of the movies listed above.  You'll be refreshed and ready to get out and visit the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks on Saturday.  Then you can have a seat and relax for a bit with us right here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.  It will be the weekend, after all.  Have a very merry Christmas, and we'll be seeing you real soon.

All of it…….except polkas.  A lot of punk and new wave influences....but still love the classic cats like Sir Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, etc. etc......but we've come to appreciate a lot of current guys. 

Those are the type of people that we can't wait to party with all night long, and so are you!  Join your favorite BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks to ring in 2016 in style.  The Wobbly Boots Roadhouse crew will make sure that fun is happening all night long, along with the best food and most delicious drinks in town.

Southern Comfort Food for the Cold Days

It doesn't have to be cold outside to enjoy our delicious Southern Comfort Food menu items, but that warm, full feeling in your stomach on a cold, wintry day really is something special.  The best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is the perfect winter place to go when you want something hot and tasty to knock off the chill.  

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has a special section of our amazing BBQ menu that includes some classic, favorite comfort foods.  We are actually experts at a lot more than BBQ.  Many of our comfort foods are still slow-smoked in our hickory smoker like our BBQ offerings, giving them a special rich and savory flavor.  Here is what you have to look forward to the next time you are craving a delicious, hot meal.  

Smoked Meatloaf

Juicy ground beef seasoned with veggies and spices, slow-roasted on our hickory smoker, served open-faced with smashed potatoes & beef gravy and green beans.

Prime Rib Hot Beef

Slow-smoked sliced prime rib served with smashed potatoes & gravy and green beans.

Chicken Fried Steak

Hand-breaded, crisp fried chicken served with mashed potatoes & country style cream gravy with green beans.  

Open Faced Smoked Turkey

The way Mom used to make it!  Delicious smoked turkey served open-faced on white bread with smashed potatoes & turkey gravy and green beans. 

Country Fried Pork

Our famous hand-breaded pork tenderloin served open-faced with smashed potatoes & country style cream gravy and green beans.  

Loaded Baker

A HUGE baked potato stuffed with your choice of our smoked pork, beef, ham, or turkey, then topped with crumbled bacon, green onions, cheddar-jack cheese, and our house recipe BBQ sauce.   

We have a long list of incredible home style side dishes available, but there's just something extra yummy and comforting about good ol' mashed potatoes and green beans, and of course, everything's better with a little gravy poured over it!  

Not only do these dishes provide physical comfort, but they also make you feel warm and fuzzy inside by making you think back to when you were young and these foods were served around your own dinner table.  The next time you are craving a bit of comfort, head on over to your favorite BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.  You'll always feel right at home at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, and you'll always leave full and satisfied.

5 Barbecue World Records

Our kitchen doles out the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks seven days a week. We offer up incredible, satisfying flavor with every order placed at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. That's quite a feat in intself, but here are a few record-breaking barbecue facts from the Guinness Book of World Records that we know our BBQ fans will find pretty cool.


30,231.99 pounds of raw beef were cooked up to make up 20,132.61 pounds of cooked beef on March 20, 2011 to celebrate the Frigorifico Pico's 30th birthday.  This incredibly delicious feat was mastered in General Pico, La Pampa, Argentina.  20,000 guests at the celebration anxiously ate it up!


The Discovery Channel's BIG! television show built the world's largest barbecue and presented it on June 20, 2004.  The incredible size of this barbecue allowed them to cook an entire pig, a 10-foot hot dog, and four turkeys!
The measurements equaled:  15 ft. 3.75 in. tall, 20 ft. 2.25 in. wide, and 8 ft. deep.  The grill itself is 96 square ft. wide and 8 ft. deep.

To earn this title, 45,252 people gathered at this event in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico on August 18, 2013.  We bet they wish they had one of the two grills above to cook for all of those people on!


At a whopping 20,246 feet long, the longest barbecue was made in the Philippines on April 4, 2014.  8,000 people took part in making this record happen.  It was achieved in order to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the city of Bayambang.  8,000 grills were connected to each other to form the longest barbecue, and over 6,000 bags of coal were used to heat it up.  


On April 27, 2014, Jan Greeff, in association with Car-Broil LLC, grilled for 80 hours!  It was for an event benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in Columbus, Georgia.  During this 80 hours, Jan cooked 1,000 hot dogs, 200 pieces of corn, 104 pieces of chicken, 558 burgers, and 526 boereworse.  Over $10,000 was raised for the foundation.  


A lot of work went into breaking those records, and we bet the participants had a lot of fun doing it.  If these world records have made you hungry for a bit of BBQ, come on over to the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and order some up.  We may not be in the Guinness Book of World Records (yet!) but Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has earned quite a few national awards for our amazing food.  Come on in and try it for yourself.
