The Best BBQ in Mid-Missouri is Created Daily at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse

If you're on the hunt for the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, go ahead and set your GPS for Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach! For more than a quarter of a decade, we've earned multiple awards and served numerous satisfied customers who all keep coming back for more. What makes our BBQ so darn good? Well, keep on reading...

Inspired by the Masters
All of our original recipes have been perfected over time by the talented chefs here at the Boot. The inspiration for what we call our "hybrid-style" of BBQ came from some of the greatest BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. - Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas. We combined our favorite things about all of their amazing styles and created a taste that is simply irresistible! 

This Is How We Do It...
We won't give away all of the secrets from our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we can give you an idea of how we get it all started. First, our meats are slow-smoked over hickory, allowing the incredible flavors of each type of meat to come through boldly. (You'll be able to smell it cooking from the parking lot!) 

Next, after the perfect amount of hours for each particular meat, we coat them (or serve them with a side of) our flavorful, house-made BBQ sauce. The end result is a plate full of hickory-smoked BBQ goodness that will have you licking your lips and dreaming about your next visit to Wobbly Boots BBQ!   

So Many Choices!
Here at the Boot, we offer those succulent hickory-smoked meats in many different ways. You'll find them as the main ingredient in many of our popular menu items, like the Pulled Pork Nachos, the Texas 2-Step, and even The Big Salad. 

If you want the meat on its own (along with a homestyle side dish, of course) then you may choose to order it as a Smoked Meat Plate with either one, two, or three different types of meat or on a bun, sandwich-style. Here is what you will have to choose from. 

Pulled Pork
Our pork is slow-smoked over hickory for 16 hours, then hand-pulled and trimmed. 

Smoked Sausage
Smoked sausage links sliced and served with our house recipe BBQ sauce. 

Turkey Breast
100% white meat turkey breast smoked to perfection. 

Pit Ham
Lean, thin-sliced, double-smoked ham. 

Beef Brisket
Our juicy beef brisket is slow-smoked for 10 hours and sliced to order for maximum tenderness. 

Burnt Ends 
Double-rubbed and double-smoked brisket tips in a beer and BBQ sauce. Coleslaw on top makes it even tastier! 

Bad to the Bone BBQ
We don't stop at just those meats listed above. The following fantastic dinner plates are served with your choice of one homestyle side dish and a big piece of Texas Toast. 

Baby Back Ribs
A slab of tender, meaty ribs coated with our dry rub and slow-smoked, lightly grilled, and basted with our secret recipe sauce before serving. 

Classic Pork Spare Ribs
For the true barbeque lover! Juicy pork spare ribs coated with our special dry rub and slow-roasted over hickory logs, then basted with our secret recipe sauce before serving.  

Hickory-Smoked Half Chicken
Our classic chicken dinner, spice-rubbed, smoked, and glazed in homemade BBQ sauce. 

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 house-made sauce. 

That's the majority of our main BBQ dishes, but we didn't even mention our famous Wobbly Wings or the hickory-smoked bacon that makes it onto many of our menu items! That same menu also offers quite a few non-BBQ dishes in addition to the award-winning BBQ you get at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant. Head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse soon and give us a try. We guarantee you'll find something to fall in love with!

The Best Way To Celebrate National Pulled Pork Day

National Pulled Pork Day lands on Saturday, October 12. Since our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks serves hand-pulled pork as one of our specialties, it seemed like a perfect holiday for us to take notice of. We actually feature our hickory-smoked pulled pork in a few different ways here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. First a few fun facts to intrigue you, then on to the delicious stuff!  


  • Pulled pork is an American dish that originated in the southern United States. 
  • The United States is the world's largest exporter of pork. 
  • Iowa is the top producer of pork in the United States. (That's where we've got another Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive, IA, a suburb of Des Moines!) 
  • Pork is the most widely consumed meat in the world! It's followed in popularity by chicken and then beef. (We hickory-smoke all three of those marvelous meats!) 
  • Pork has more protein than chicken and is high in zinc, iron, and B-vitamins. 
  • Studies show that pork of today has become leaner since the 1950s. 

Pulled Pork at The Boot
Wobbly Boots BBQ slow-smokes our pork over hickory for about 16 hours. Once it is at it's most flavorful best, we hand-pull and trim it for your dining pleasure. You can order it alone as your main meal or enjoy it as the main ingredient in many of our other dishes.
