Celebrate National Catfish Day in Style at Wobbly Boots BBQ!

Although August is designated as National Catfish Month, we get a sneak preview of that upcoming celebration with National Catfish Day happening this week on Thursday, June 25. The best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think about catfish, but maybe it should be! 

Catfish, Wobbly Boots-Style
Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach has quite a few savory seafood dishes on the menu. Two of these irresistible offerings have catfish as the "star of the plate."   

Catfish BLT
Here's a sandwich that's loaded with mouthwatering flavor! We take a southern-style catfish filet, coat it in specially seasoned cornmeal, and fry it to a beautiful golden brown. That is served up on a hoagie with hickory-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, and Cajun mayo. 

Catfish Dinner
This hearty plate consists of 2 delicious southern-fried catfish filets served with tartar sauce, a slice of lemon, Texas toast, and one of our savory homestyle side dishes. 

Did You Know... 
There are many reasons to order catfish from the menu at Wobbly Boots BBQ. The first and most obvious is that it tastes delicious! Some added benefits include the fact that catfish are high in protein and contain no carbohydrates. This particular variety of fish is also an excellent source of B Vitamins and phosphorus.

After doing some research, we found a few more fun facts about catfish that you might be interested to know. 

  • Catfish do not have scales! All catfish (and there are nearly 2,900 species of them) are either naked or armored.  
  • While catfish are bottom feeders, farm-raised catfish are taught to eat pellets that float on top of the water.  
  • In the Southern United States, slang names for catfish include "mud cat," "polliwogs," and "chuckleheads." 
  • According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest catfish ever caught happened on June 18, 2011. Richard Nicolas Anderson caught a blue catfish at Kerr Lake, Buggs Island, Virginia that weighed in at 143 pounds! (Now that would make a LOT of Catfish BLT sandwiches!) 
  • Legend says that giant man-eating catfish live deep below Bagnell Dam! Divers swear that this is just a myth. (Or is it...) The largest catfish ever caught in the Lake of the Ozarks (unless someone has beaten this record since we last looked) weighed in at 103 pounds.     

More Seafood at the Boot
Catfish isn't the only type of seafood found on the menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. In addition to the best hickory-smoked BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, you will also find these tasty treats.   
  • Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
  • Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
  • Smoked Salmon Salad
  • Fried Shrimp Dinner
  • Brown Sugar Salmon Dinner
  • Fried Shrimp Po' Boy
  • Blackened Salmon Sandwich
  • Smoked Salmon Wrap

Whether you decide to celebrate National Catfish Day this Thursday, June 25, 2020, wait for National Catfish Month in August, or simply come in any time to give the catfish a try at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant, the "when" doesn't really matter. As long as you come by at some point (hopefully soon) to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for these amazing dishes, that's really all that matters. You're going to love them!

These BBQ Dishes are "Bad to the Bone"... But the Good Kind of Bad!

When you say something is "Bad to the Bone," one interpretation is that the thing you are speaking of is aggressive and rebellious. That sounds about right for the Bad to the Bone section of the menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach! 

The four mouthwatering dishes that make up this portion of the menu feature flavors that hit your taste buds hard, but in the best, most enjoyable way possible! It's a hickory-smoked taste sensation that goes above and beyond the BBQ you're probably used to up until now! 

Okay, maybe we're a bit biased, but after you have just one bite of any of these delicious dishes, we truly believe that you'll agree with us. Our goal is to offer the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks and these dinners set us up to earn that title. 

Baby Back Ribs
For this incredible entree, we coat a slab of tender, meaty baby back ribs with our dry rub and then slow-smoke it over hickory, lightly grill it, and baste it with our secret recipe BBQ sauce before serving. Available as a full or half-slab, this hearty plate is served alongside one of our homestyle side dishes with a big ol' piece of Texas toast. 

Baby Back ribs are not named that because of the age of the animal they come from but rather for the smaller size of the rib compared to a classic spare rib. That small size does not mean small flavor, because these are the tenderest and leanest ribs you can order with meat both between and on top of the bones.  

Classic Pork Spare Ribs
Yes, we've got two types of BBQ ribs on our menu to choose from because... why not! Both kinds are so absolutely delicious, we simply couldn't decide on just one. Spare ribs are flatter than the baby back ribs and tend to have less meat, but due to the fact that this is a fattier cut, these ribs have even more flavor. 

Here at Wobbly Boots BBQ, our juicy pork spare ribs are also coated with our special dry rub, slow-roasted over hickory, and basted with our secret house-recipe sauce before serving. (Why would we make them any different? You don't need to improve on perfection!) You can order them as a full or half-slab along with a homestyle side dish of your choice and Texas toast. 

Hickory-Smoked Half-Chicken
This meal is meant for someone with a great big appetite! Most people have had chicken grilled, baked, or deep-fried but if you've never enjoyed this brilliant bird slow-smoked over hickory, then you're really missing something special. 

Here at the Boot, our classic chicken dinner is spice-rubbed, hickory-smoked, and glazed in our homemade sauce. Your choice of one of our savory side dishes plus a great big piece of Texas toast round out this amazing meal. 

BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo
For those of you that simply cannot decide between ribs and chicken, well, we don't want you to stress over that decision too much. This delicious combination of mouthwatering 'que offers you the best of both worlds!

You still get your choice of an incredible homestyle side dish and a big ol' piece of Texas toast, plus BOTH a half a BBQ chicken AND a half-slab of pork spare ribs, each irresistibly glazed in our house-made sauce.    

If you fancy yourself a true BBQ lover, then you need to get yourself on over to the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and give our mind-blowing, hickory-smoked, hybrid-style BBQ a try. We know you're going to love it and we're willing to bet you become a regular at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse any time you're in the lake area.

If You Love Hickory-Smoked Turkey - June is Your Month!

While one might assume that November is the month to celebrate turkey, Thanksgiving isn't the only time of the year that this tasty meat is highlighted. The month of June is designated as "Turkey Lover's Month" and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is here to help you enjoy turkey in the most delicious ways possible. 

Turkey happens to be one of the many foods included in our long list of the best hickory-smoked meats at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here's a closer look at the many different ways you can enjoy it right here at the Boot.  

Turkey - Delicious AND Nutritious
Our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant has perfected how to create the most mouthwatering, flavorful, hickory-smoked turkey you've ever sunk your teeth into! We take 100% white meat turkey breast and smoke it to perfection in-house, so it's always fresh. 

In addition to amazing flavor, another great reason to enjoy turkey is the fact that it's good for you too. Turkey is low in fat yet high in protein. It's also an excellent source of iron, zinc, phosphorous, potassium, and B vitamins. 

Turkey Dishes at the Boot
As with all of our award-winning, hickory-smoked meats, you can enjoy turkey at Wobbly Boots BBQ on a bun, sandwich-style, or as a part of a smoked meat dinner plate. We also use it as a fantastic main ingredient in the following menu items. 

Grilled Turkey Wrap
The original Wobbly Boots wrap. Lightly grilled turkey breast served in a warm wheat tortilla stuffed full of bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar-jack cheese, and ranch dressing. 

Turkey Avocado Wrap
Hickory-smoked 100% breast of turkey served in a wheat tortilla with avocado, avocado map, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar-jack cheese.

Texas Style Club
Turkey, ham, bacon, lettuce, tomato, Provolone cheese, and avocado mayo served on wheatberry bread. 

Sandwich & Soup/Salad
A Turkey and Swiss Melt on grilled sourdough bread with your choice of a cup of soup or a crisp garden salad. 

The Big Salad
Add your choice of a delicious meat topping (this month, we highly suggest the smoked turkey!) to a large bowl of mixed greens topped with tomatoes, red onion, cheddar-jack cheese, and Provel cheese. If it seems like too much to eat in one sitting, we've got a Small Salad on the menu too! 

Cowboy Cobb
The king of salads! A platter of crisp greens generously topped with smoked turkey, smoked ham, crumbled bacon, hard-boiled egg, avocado, tomatoes, red onion, cheddar-jack cheese, and Provel cheese. (Also available in a half-portion.)

There you have it. Plenty of different ways to celebrate National Turkey Lover's Month at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant. Don't forget, you can also order our smoked turkey breast in bulk, along with all of our other hickory-smoked meats, to serve at your family gathering and other summertime events. 

There's no need to wait for Thanksgiving to roll around to get your turkey fix. Join us for that any time of the year, 7 days a week, at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach!
