The Boot Goes Gourmet... With Sandwiches & Wraps!

To go "gourmet," you don't have to get fancy and fill a plate with foods that don't really look like food and have names you can't pronounce. On the contrary, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach has an entire section of Gourmet Sandwiches that even the pickiest foodies will love!

What is "Gourmet?"
The word gourmet is both a noun and an adjective. If a person claims to be this, they are a connoisseur of fine food and drink. (Fine food and drink is an excellent description of what you will always find at our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks!) 

Gourmet as an adjective is meant to describe foods that involve high-quality ingredients and skilled preparation. (Yep, still covers the type of cuisine we serve on a daily basis!) It's especially true for the savory sandwiches and wonderful wraps featured in today's blog. Get ready to have your mouth water because the rest of the page is going to make you hungry! 

Gourmet Sandwiches & Wraps
Each one of these amazing sandwiches is served with your choice of one of our homestyle side dishes.

As a matter of fact, these are only a small sampling of the incredible sandwiches on the menu. Next week, we'll have an entire blog dedicated to the mouthwatering Down Home Sandwiches section.

Baby Back Ribs or Spare Ribs - Which Do You Love Most?

You can't claim to be the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks unless you know how to cook up a mouthwatering, finger-licking good rack of ribs. Well, WobblyBoots Roadhouse in Osage Beach just so happens to know exactly how to do that! 

As a matter of fact, here at the Boot, we serve two different types of ribs; Baby Back Ribs and Classic Pork Spare Ribs. Some people have a strong opinion about which type they like best. Here's the lowdown on each one to help you decide which to order the next time you're in the mood for some hickory-smoked BBQ. 

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! A big ol' slice of Texas toast and one of our homestyle side dishes complete the dining experience. 

Ribs... & More!
Here at our Lake of the Ozarks family-style restaurant, you can also order our succulent ribs as either an appetizer or as a part of a combo meal. That way, not only do you get to satisfy those BBQ rib cravings but you also get a taste of one of our other irresistible menu items. 

Ribbies & Wings
Two of our most popular items, both on one plate! Four individual pork spare ribs with our house recipe BBQ sauce and six Wobbly Wings with your choice of sauce. 

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

BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo
A delicious combination of mouthwatering 'que! Half a BBQ chicken and a half-slab of pork spare ribs both glazed with our house-made BBQ sauce. 

So, what do you think? Will you be a Baby Back Ribs fan or a Spare Ribs fan? The easiest way to find out is to come on into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and give them both a try! Since it's some of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, you know you'll be back more than once anyway. Come back often and try it all!

Variety is the Spice of Life & Our Menu's Got It!

While we're most widely known for having the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, the rest of our menu is irresistible as well. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach offers a wonderful variety of foods so that no matter what you're craving or who you're dining with, there's something for everyone! 

Award-Winning BBQ
We'll start with obvious. Our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks uses a hybrid-style of cooking to create that BBQ you love! It 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! 

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
The 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, to name a few. 

Soup & Sandwiches
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, both BBQ and non-BBQ options! The "Down Home Sandwiches" menu features treats like the Crusty Cuban, Smothered Brisket, and Hand-Breaded Pork Tenderloin. Our "Gourmet Sandwiches" feature the likes of the Prime Rib French Dip, Texas Style Club, and our Salmon BLT. (We didn't even get into the large variety of delicious wraps and burgers, but you'll find quite a few of those on the menu too!)  

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!)  

We didn't have enough room to list each and every single dish on the menu but this will give you a wonderful idea of what to expect when you come into our restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks. You can see the full Wobbly Boots Roadhouse online but an even better idea is to come on in and see it in person. That way, you'll be able to taste it right away!

"We always, ALWAYS go to Wobbly Boots whenever we go to the Big Side of the Lake. OMG, get the onion rings for sure. Best we've ever had in any state we've traveled. The Smoked Meatloaf is awesome. The Mac and cheese is a meal in itself. The staff is incredible. Most recommended stop we could ever tell you to GO. Super menu and food. Don't miss this place. Decor is incredibly cool. What they've done with vintage items would be a country decorator's dream. You have to stop. Best place to eat. Forget the chains, bars, and fast food joints. Go have real Ozark cooking."
-Clare Iltzsh

"This is my second visit here in two days. I'm in town for a conference. We stumbled across this restaurant and it is great. The servings are huge and reasonable for the price. This will be my go-to restaurant anytime I'm at the Ozarks."
-Donna Wigfall

"My wife and daughter had a half slab of ribs and loved them. I had the prime rib sliders and a side of baked beans. The baked beans were awesome, but are a little bit spicy (I enjoyed this, but my daughter doesn't do well with spicy stuff). Service was fast and friendly and we were seated quickly. Portions were also big."

-Robert Chandler
