4th of July at the Lake of the Ozarks & Wobbly Boots BBQ

Did you know that the most popular holiday to enjoy the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks is the 4th of July? Wobbly Boots Roadhouse can take care of all your food needs, and the lake area has plenty going on to take care of the rest of your holiday fun! 

Dine In or Order Out
Whether you decide to dine in the family friendly, home style atmosphere of our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant or pick up some delicious dishes to take home to the family or picnic in the park, we've got you covered! You'll find favorite cookout-style meals on our menu, as well as lots of culinary delights that only our incredible smoker can produce.

Burgers are a popular BBQ treat, and our Black Angus Burgers are the best in the Midwest. Made from 100% hand pattied black Angus ground chuck and cooked on a flat-top iron, these burgers simply can't be beat. We've also got Hickory-Smoked Chicken Dinners glazed in homemade BBQ sauce, and of course, don't forget the ribs! Our Baby Back Ribs and Classic Pork Spare Ribs are the juiciest, most tender ribs you'll ever have the pleasure of tasting. Pair any one of these with some of our home style side dishes, like Legendary Baked Beans, Gourmet Potato Salad, or Creamy Cole Slaw, and you're all set!  

Lake of the Ozarks Fireworks 
Fireworks and the 4th of July go hand in hand, and the lake area boasts lots of incredible fireworks displays for you to enjoy over many different nights this year. Head on out to see the show after dinner at the Boot, or let us pack your to-go order so you can take it along with you to eat picnic-style while you wait for the fireworks. Most shows begin right after dusk, and multiple displays can be seen from various spots around the area, both by land or water. Here are some of the local displays happening this year.

The Best Black Angus Burgers at the Lake of the Ozarks!

If you're craving the best burgers at the Lake of the Ozarks, then you need to head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. Not only do we offer the best burgers at the Lake, we boast the best Black Angus Burgers you'll find anywhere in the Midwest! 

We don't just do great BBQ. We put every bit as much care and attention into the rest of our delicious menu as we do our amazing hickory-smoked meats. One area in particular that we excel in flavor is in our wide selection of Black Angus Burgers. What makes ours so special? Well...

Our Burger "Secret"
We only use 100% Black Angus ground chuck, which happens to be made from the tastiest, most tender cut of beef available. Each burger is made by hand to ensure that every one served meets our high standards of size and shape. After it is perfectly formed, we cook it on a flat-top iron and serve it up on a fresh, kaiser bun. 

These incredible burgers are mouth-watering enough to satisfy any hunger just as described above, but here at Wobbly Boots BBQ, we always go above and beyond the standards of great taste! The talented chefs in our  kitchen came up with some unbelievable combinations of toppings to make our burgers even more irresistible. 

Farm Boy Burger
A juicy, flavorful classic, cooked the way you like it! 

El Diablo Burger
A real mouth-burner! Topped with ghost pepper cheese, bacon, jalapenos, and our zesty 6-pepper sauce. 

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. 

Patty Melt
Our famous burger topped with sauteed onions and Swiss cheese, served on grilled marbled rye bread. 

Beale Street Burger
Our tribute to the South! Topped with hickory-smoked pulled pork & creamy cole slaw. 

Black & Bleu Burger
Our famous Farm Boy Burger spiced up with Cajun seasoning and topped with bleu cheese crumbles.

Ham, Mushroom, & Swiss Burger
This time we top our Farm Boy Burger with pit ham, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. 

Each time you come into the Boot, be sure to ask your server what special burger we're featuring that week!

Create Your Own
As creative as the cooks are in our kitchen, we realize that sometimes the only one who knows exactly what you want is... you! When that's the case, you can order up your favorite Black Angus Burger, then add any of the following toppings that your heart (or hunger) desires. 

  • Cheese:
    • American 
    • Provolone
    • Swiss
    • Cheddar-Jack
    • Ghost Pepper
    • Pepper Jack
    • Bleu Cheese Crumbles
  • Sauteed Mushrooms
  • Sauteed Onions
  • Sauteed Green Peppers
  • Bacon

What'll it be? 
Which one of those amazing Black Angus Burgers is making your mouth water the most? Be sure you come in to our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant hungry, because every one of those delicious burgers also comes with one of our home style side dishes. Why slave over a hot grill in the midst of the summer heat? Instead, come on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and let us do the cooking for you. We promise, you'll be thrilled that you did!

How To Pack The Perfect BBQ Picnic Basket

The weather has been so beautiful lately, you may hate the idea of having to come indoors to eat. Good news, because the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks actually travels well. With the proper packing techniques, you can enjoy your favorite Wobbly Boots Roadhouse BBQ and the amazing spring weather outside at the same time! 

BBQ is a great picnic food, and picking it up at Wobbly Boots to go means you don't have to bother with any of the cooking. You can simply enjoy the afternoon outside with everyone else instead of standing at that hot grill. 

The most important thing to take care of when you picnic is the food safety. Hot foods need to be kept hot, and cold foods cold. Insulated coolers can handle both of those tasks. 

Traveling with cold foods, like cole slaw or potato salad (which we sell both of in bulk for larger groups) is easy. You can use sealed containers and ice, but to make sure that ice doesn't melt and leak into the food, you might want to use ice packs instead. 

An even better idea is to freeze water bottles and use those for your ice packs. They take up more space to keep the food in place inside the cooler, plus, once they melt you have cold water to drink. 

Hot foods can take a little more work to pack if you won't be eating them right away. You'll want to pack it into your cooler as soon as soon as you pick up your order. Wrapping the containers in aluminum foil can help to keep the heat in longer. Microwavable hot packs are another great source of heat for keeping our delicious, hickory-smoked meats and home style side dishes warm and ready to eat. 

The more insulation, the better for keeping all of that warmth inside the cooler and around your food. Wrapping the food, along with a hot pack, inside a towel traps in heat. If there is extra space inside the "hot" cooler, you can use more rolled up towels to keep everything in place. Keep the lid closed until serving time, and open it as little as possible. 

If there's any food left after everyone has had their fill, pack it back up as soon as you're done. Try to not leave food out for more than 1 hour. It is suggested that anything left out for more than 2 hours should be thrown away. (But hey, with BBQ this good, there probably won't be anything left to pack away!) 

Go ahead and keep the cold and warm foods separated so that the warm items don't add any heat to the things that are already cold. Keep the coolers in a shaded area, out of direct sunlight until you are ready to head back home. 

After a wonderful lunch full of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may want to get back to the air conditioning and cool off. That's when you can swing back by Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and join us for an ice cold drink and maybe even catch a game. We're always here for you, 7 days a week, all year long, no matter what the season.

This may come as a surprise to you, but June is Turkey Lovers Month. You would assume that would fall closer to Thanksgiving, but this way, you have a second time of the year to make it a point to enjoy that delicious bird. 

Here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, we take 100% white meat turkey breast and smoke it to perfection over hickory, then serve it up with our savory, housemade BBQ sauce on a bun or straight onto the plate with your choice of a delicious home style side dish. We don't stop at that one mouthwatering option though. Here is a list of all the other ways you can get a taste of flavorful hickory-smoked turkey breast at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant.

Turkey & Swiss with Soup or Salad

A bowl of one of our featured soups or a crisp garden salad with a delicious Turkey & Swiss Melt on sourdough bread. 

The Big Salad

You're free to choose any of our savory, hickory-smoked meats for this salad, including smoked turkey breast, and it joins a big bowl of mixed greens, tomatoes, red onion, cheddar-jack and Provolone cheeses. 

Cowboy Cobb
The King of Salads! A platter of crisp greens generously topped with smoked ham & turkey, crumbled bacon, hard-boiled egg, avocado, tomatoes, red onion, and cheddar-jack & Provolone cheese.
