Celebrate National Pig Day With These Pleasantly Perfect Pork Dishes!

National Pig Day is coming up next week on Monday, March 1. The gang at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach has a few very delicious ideas on how to observe this particular holiday. Among our wide variety of mouthwatering hickory-smoked meats, pork is a very popular choice. Here are some of the fantastic ways you'll find this tasty animal at our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.  


Our appetizer menu has a couple of irresistible pork items on it. This first dish is even one of our Happy Hour specials 6 days a week!

  • BBQ Pork Nachos
    This great big plate of tortilla chips is covered with our spicy queso cheese sauce, pulled pork, baked beans, cheddar-jack cheese, tomatoes, and onions all served with a side of jalapenos. Enjoy this tasty treat as a full order or a half-order.
  • Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
    Some might assume the shrimp is the focus of this dish, but their fantastic flavor is elevated by the presence of everyone's favorite pork product - bacon! This order comes with 6 large Gulf shrimp individually wrapped with our hickory-smoked bacon and grilled to perfection. They are great plain but also taste incredible tossed in our chipotle Buffalo sauce. 

Smoked Meats

Our hickory-smoked meats can be ordered on a bun in 5-oz or 8-oz portions or you may choose to enjoy them on a plate without the bread instead. If you're in the mood for "the other white meat", we've got it in two ways for you here. Our BBQ is always served wet (aka - sauced) but feel free to ask for it "dry" and add your own preferred amount of our house-recipe BBQ sauce.  

  • Pulled Pork
    Slow-smoked, hand-pulled, and trimmed
  • Pit Ham
  • Lean, thin-sliced, and double-smoked

Pork Sandwiches

You'll find a long list of hard-to-resist pork sandwiches on the menu at our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. In addition to the smoked meat sandwiches mentioned above, these delicious dishes are available too. 

  • Hand-Breaded Pork Tenderloin
    An Iowa tradition mastered perfectly right here in mid-Missouri! This generous cut of pork tenderloin is hand-breaded and fried to a golden brown, served with lettuce, tomato, and onion.
  • Southern Style Pork
    A pulled pork sandwich with a Carolina twist! It's topped with our creamy coleslaw.
  • Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich
    A juicy 7-oz. chicken breast topped with grilled ham, teriyaki sauce, Swiss cheese, lettuce, and grilled pineapple.
  • Wrangler Wrap
    A wheat tortilla stuffed with three of our signature items; pulled pork, baked beans, and creamy coleslaw. 
  • Crusty Cuban
    House-pulled pork and pit ham, plus pickles, house mustard, and Swiss cheese served on a hoagie roll and pressed to perfection.
  • Texas Style Club
    Ham, bacon, turkey, lettuce, tomato, Provolone cheese, and roasted pepper and tomato aioli served on wheatberry bread. 
  • Big Texas BLT
    This homestyle sandwich is loaded with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo all stacked between two pieces of Texas toast. 


While the burgers themselves are made from a special blend of black Angus, chuck, brisket, and short rib, the following burger creations have some of our pork added on top along with a few more irresistible toppings. 

  • 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. 
  • Ham, Mushroom, & Swiss Burger
    Our famous Farm Boy Burger topped with pit ham, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. 
  • Beale Street Burger
    A tasty tribute to the South! Our fantastic burger topped with pulled pork and creamy coleslaw. 


Going a step beyond appetizers and sandwiches, the following meals are all "must-try" menu items when you dine at Wobbly Boots BBQ! (Of course, we say that about all of our menu items but since it's true, we just can't help ourselves!) 

  • Country Fried Pork
    Southern comfort food at its finest! Our famous hand-breaded pork tenderloin served open-faced with green beans, smashed potatoes, and country-style cream gravy. 
  • Baby Back Ribs
    Enjoy either a full or half-slab of these 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
    A meal for the true BBQ lover! Either a full or half-slab of juicy pork spare ribs coated with our special dry rub, slow-roasted over hickory logs, and basted with our secret recipe sauce before serving. 

So the next time you're in the mood for "the other white meat" smoked to perfection over hickory (or in the case of our pork tenderloin, deliciously deep-fried) head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. Pork is an important part of our menu of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks but it's only the beginning of a long list of delicious dishes waiting to be discovered! Get hungry and get on over here soon!

A Look at How We Create the Best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks

When your stomach is rumbling and you're on the lookout for the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, we honestly believe that you will find that at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, MO. Of course, you might assume we're a little biased but we've got actions to back up those words! 

Our award-winning BBQ dishes come from specialty recipes we've perfected over time, high-quality ingredients, and an attention to detail that creates a mouthwatering meal you won't soon forget. How do we do it? Keep reading to find out!

A Unique Hybrid BBQ Style

The type of BBQ you'll discover at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse was inspired by many different BBQ masters from around the country. We lovingly refer to it as a "hybrid style" of BBQ combining elements of the dishes found in the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. - Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas. 

We took our favorite parts away from each of these styles and put them all together to create a taste that people can't seem to get enough of! Luckily for all of you, we're open 7 days a week, year-round, and smoke our meats on a daily basis so it's always ready for you to enjoy. 

Smoked Over Hickory

The key to creating the Wobbly Boots BBQ flavor that is so popular around these parts is the hickory-smoked goodness we infuse into each bite. First, we slow-smoke our succulent meats over hickory, allowing the incredible flavors of each type of meat to come through boldly. Our clever chefs have figured out exactly how long each meat needs to spend in the smoker to become its flavorful best.  

Next, those meats are coated (or served with a side of) our extraordinary house-recipe BBQ sauce. The end result is a plate full of hickory-smoked BBQ that will leave you fully satisfied yet anxious to come back again for more!  

So Many Choices!

You can enjoy our hickory-smoked meats either between two slices of bread or piled high on a plate next to one of our homestyle side dishes. We also create quite a few BBQ entrees that are every bit as irresistible. Here's a look at a few of our offerings. 

Smoked Meat on a Bun
You can enjoy a 5-oz. or 8-oz. portion of your choice of our BBQ meats served on a locally-baked kaiser roll with your choice of our many side dishes. These sandwiches are always served "wet" (sauced) but feel free to ask for the sauce on the side if you like. Meats include:

  • Pulled Pork
  • Southern Style Pork
    Pulled pork topped with creamy coleslaw.
  • Burnt Ends
  • Turkey Breast
  • Beef Brisket
  • Texas 2-Step
  • Smothered Brisket
  • Pit Ham
  • Combo Sandwich
    4-oz. each of any two of our smoked meats listed above. 

Smoked Meat Plates 
Here you can build your own plate filled with the hickory-smoked meats of your choice. Each dinner is served with a piece of Texas toast and one homestyle side dish. 

  • Jumbo Meat Plate
    A jumbo portion of your favorite meat. 
  • Double Meat Combo
    Two portions of your choosing.
  • BBQ Trio
    Try the original trio of pork, beef, and sausage or select three of your favorites for a hearty meal.

BBQ Dinners
The "Bad to the Bone BBQ" section of our menu adds the deliciousness of two more hickory-smoked classics - ribs and chicken. Each of these tasty entrees is served with a homestyle side dish and a slice of Texas toast.

  • Baby Back Ribs
  • Classic Pork Spare Ribs
  • Hickory-Smoked Half-Chicken
  • BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo

The irresistible deliciousness listed above is just the beginning! You'll find a wonderful variety of fantastic dishes throughout the menu at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant. Many of these have one or more of our mouthwatering, hickory-smoked meats as the main ingredient. Now, all you have to do to find out if our BBQ is the best is to come on in and taste it for yourself. We're confident that you'll agree, it doesn't get any better than the Boot!

2 Excellent Ways to Watch the Biggest Football Game of the Year

 The NFL Championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicks-off at 5:30 pm this Sunday, February 7, 2021. You know you're going to be watching (even if it's just for the commercials!) Why not watch it with us at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach? 

Whether you join us in the dining room or order the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks to take home with you, both ways can make the viewing experience a lot more enjoyable. 

Join Us in the Dining Room

Our family-friendly restaurant is a great place to enjoy a meal any day of the week and when there is an exciting game on TV, we're also the best place to watch sports at the Lake of the Ozarks! Here are a couple of reasons why watching the game at our place this Sunday is an excellent idea. 

  • 21 TVs & a Giant Projection Screen

As we mentioned earlier, kick-off for the "big game" is at 5:30 pm. (FYI, copyright laws forbid us from using the name of that game, so please bear with any creative name-calling used in today's blog) You'll probably want to come in a lot earlier than that to get first choice at your preferred spot to watch the game. 

Of course, with 21 TVs placed all around the bar and restaurant plus the giant projection screen up on the stage, there's really not a bad seat in the house. Regardless of where you end up sitting to enjoy the competition, you should have a great view of all the action. 

  • Happy Hour All Day Long

Another excellent reason that you might want to come in early before kick-off is the fact that we host the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks all day every Sunday, including this particular championship Sunday! That means all day long, in addition to our regular menu, we'll have great deals for you on drinks from the bar and select appetizers. 

The drink discounts include all well drinks, wine, and our selection of 21 different beers on tap. As for the appetizers, we've got: 

  • Pulled Pork Sliders - 3 for $6
  • Shaved Prime Rib Sliders - 3 for $9
  • Large Pulled Pork Nachos - $2 off

Serve Wobbly Boots BBQ at Home

If you prefer to watch the bowl game that is super (wink, wink) at home instead of here with us, order a few of your Wobbly Boots Roadhouse favorites to enjoy at your place during the game. You'll get the double-benefit of delicious food to munch on plus no cooking necessary on your part! 

It's easy to order Wobbly Boots BBQ to-go online through our website. You can also give us a call at 573-348-2277 to place an order, but if phone lines are busy, our website is a terrific way to get your order to the kitchen a lot faster. If you're planning to place an extremely large order, go ahead and give us a call early in the week so that we're guaranteed to have plenty of what you're craving on hand for Sunday. 

It doesn't really matter if you watch the game here or at home (although we love having your company when you're here!) What does matter is that you've got plenty of delicious Wobbly Boots BBQ to enjoy while you watch the game. Let us help you out with that part and make plans now to order up all of your favorites before the game gets started.

The Many Reasons the Boot is a Great Place for a Business Lunch

Recently, Missouri Magazine announced their "Missouri's Best" Winners for 2021 and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse was pleased to find our name on that list. If you've dined with us before, you already know that we serve the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks and according to the voters in the Missouri's Best poll, we offer the best business lunch in Missouri on top of that! 

In addition to families and groups of friends gathering at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant & bar, we see quite a few businesses bringing in their employees and clients for a taste of the Boot. For those of you that could fit into that last category of diners, here's a closer look at what a business lunch at Wobbly Boots BBQ has to offer.   

Lunch Begins Daily at 11:00 am

The next time that you need a spot to meet up with a client or want to treat the office to lunch, consider inviting them to join you at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. We begin serving our extensive menu at 11:00 am, 7 days a week. 

There is plenty of seating for groups both large and small and the dining room is spacious enough that finding a table to have a conversation won't be hard at all. If you have a particularly large group, we may be able to reserve our private room for your get together.  

Of course, if it's more of a pleasure trip than a business meeting, we've got 21 TVs for you and the gang to catch an afternoon game on. Also, if you opt for a late lunch, you might be around long enough to take advantage of our weekday Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks that takes place every Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm. We have Happy Hour food and drink specials all day every Sunday too, so if a weekend meeting is in the cards, that's a great day to join us.  

Fantastic Variety of Food

Another factor that makes our place perfect for a business meeting is the fact that, in addition to amazing, hickory-smoked BBQ, our extensive menu features a wide variety of non-BBQ dishes too. That means everyone at your lunch meeting, no matter how different their tastes may be, is bound to find something they are excited to sink their teeth into. 

We Cater Too!

You don't have to come to us for your business meetings, office parties, and corporate events. Instead, take advantage of the best catering at the Lake of the Ozarks and let us bring all the deliciousness to you! Give our catering experts a call at 573-348-2277 to discuss a menu and get your date on our calendar.

Turn Up the Heat! Spicy Foods Can Be Good For You

If you enjoy spicy foods it is most likely because you think they taste great. Well, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach is here to tell you that not only are your taste buds getting a treat when you bite into something "hot" but you're also getting some health benefits at the same time. (Pretty "cool", huh?)

Our BBQ restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few spicy delicacies on the menu. Below we've listed some of the reasons why you might want to begin adding more spicy foods to your diet. After that, we'll give you a peek at some of the delicious ways you can do that at the Boot. 

Health Benefits of Spicy Foods

  • Stress Relief
    Endorphins are released in your body when you consume spicy food. These "feel-good" hormones are like natural pain medication, they can reduce anxiety, and even ease the effects of depression.  

  • Heart Health
    "Bad" cholesterol can cause damage to a person's body, but eating chili peppers can lower the risk of this by increasing the breakdown rate of this type of cholesterol. Blood flow is also increased, improving heart function and lowering blood pressure.

  • Weight Loss
    Peppers contain a spicy chemical called capasaicin which is great for boosting your metabolism. The effects can last up to 20 minutes after you have eaten. Foods with a little extra heat can also help you to feel full, which reduces cravings for salty, sweet, and fatty foods. 

  • Eases Congestion
    We have all eaten hot foods before that cause us to begin sniffling. This is because spicy items thin mucus, which is perfect when you have clogged nasal passages. The heat can even help with respiratory problems like bronchitis and asthma.  

  • Cancer Prevention
    The American Association for Cancer Research has stated that the capasaicin in peppers has the ability to kill some cancer and leukemic cells. It creates a reaction that lowers the risk of tumors too. 

Menu Items With a Bit of Heat

Wobbly Boots BBQ has a few menu items that are ready to heat up your taste buds. Not too much spice to truly enjoy but instead, just the right amount! (Of course, if you need it hotter, we're happy to see what we can do!) 

El Diablo Burger
A real mouth-burner! This incredible burger is topped with pepper jack cheese, bacon, jalapenos, and our zesty 6-pepper sauce. 

Black & Bleu Burger
Our famous Farm Boy Burger spiced up with Cajun seasoning and topped with Bleu cheese crumbles. It's great with bacon added too. 

6-Pepper Steak Po' Boy
Thin-shaved smoked prime rib and Swiss cheese topped with our 6-pepper sauce and served on a hoagie. 

Hot Cheesy Stripper
Breaded chicken tenders tossed in our hot chipotle sauce with melted Provolone cheese on a hoagie roll. 

Chipotle Buffalo Wobbly Wings
Juicy jumbo chicken wings coated in our house dry rub, slow-roasted in our hickory pit, and tossed in our very special version of a traditional Buffalo sauce. Our Wobbly Wings are also available Trashed (deep-fried before serving) or with one of the following sauces instead: BBQ, Original, or Teriyaki. 

When you're ready to add a little "spice" to your life, head on over to our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. Let us know just how hot you want it and we'll make sure it's both spicy and delicious!
