Cold Weather Calls For Warm Comfort Foods

When the weather gets cold outside, you begin craving warm, comforting foods "just like Mom used to make!" Here at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill, we've got quite a few perfect menu items to fit into the "Comfort Food" category made with fresh ingredients and creative recipes. 

What is Comfort Food? 
Our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant is a great place to go for a hot, delicious meal that will make you feel good inside and out. Comfort foods do exaclty that, they comfort with both physical warmth and satisfaction as well as mental happiness. They are most often served hot, and generally have a higher calorie count and carbohydrate level. 

Another thing that puts a food into this category is when a person has a nostalgic or sentimental tie to it. Enjoying something you had often as a kid can bring back old, happy memories making you feel all warm and cozy inside. Here are some of the menu items from our Lake of the Ozarks sports grill that may fit the "comfort food" description for you.    

Hot soup (or chili) puts a warm feeling in your tummy that radiates throughout your entire body. Both of ours are served either in a cup or a bowl.  

-Tomato Bisque
Our gourmet tomato soup is sure to hit the spot, and it's served along with a miniature grilled cheese sandwich, yet another incredible food to comfort both your body and soul. 
-Willie's Smoked Turkey Chili
This savory chili is prepared with delicious smoked turkey, white beans, tomatillos, and green chilies, and then garnished with cilantro and tortilla strips.

Burgers & Fries
Nothing's more nostalgic than a good ol' burger with a side of French fries. We're willing to bet everyone has had quite a few of those in their lifetime. We have 5 amazing burger creations for you to choose from, plus a tasty list of toppings if you'd like to create your own. All of our burgers are 7-oz. and served on a Brioche bun with your choice of a side dish. (Our Sidewinder Fries are a great choice!) 

Flame grilled to perfection.
-Willie's Burger
Flame grilled with cheddar & bleu cheeses and bacon-onion jam.
-The Logan Burger
 A flame broiled beef patty topped with deep bacon mac ‘n cheese.
-The Wicked Burger
Flame grilled ground chuck infused with caramelized onions, jalapeno, and chipotle sauce, then topped with caramelized onions, pepper jack cheese, guacamole, and chipotle mayonnaise.
-Western Burger 
A flame grilled burger with BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, and crispy fried onion straws.

Thick, rich pasta always makes a body feel good, and when you add a savory sauce, it's pure satisfaction. 

-Cajun Chicken Fettucine
We take blackened, spiced, grilled chicken with roasted peppets, sundried tomatoes, and sauteed spinach in a spicy Cajun sauce and pair it with a bowl full of fettucine. If you're not in the mood for chicken, you are welcome to substitute shrimp for a small additional charge.  

Always a classic dish that almost no one can say no to! Our version of this enjoyable menu item is served flatbread-style. 

-BBQ Chicken Flatbread
This one has a BBQ sauce and is topped with seasoned chicken, bacon, red onions, cheddar jack cheese, & fresh cilantro.
-Exotic Mushroom Flatbread
A wonderful mix of roasted exotic mushroom blend, fresh herbs, parmesan and goat cheeses.
-Margherita Flatbread
Enjoy fresh basil, mozzarella, tomato, roasted garlic olive oil, and balsamic syrup. 

Cheese Dips
Much like the comfort you get from a hot soup, but thicker, richer, and much creamier! 

-Wicked Fundido
A magical blend of velvety cheeses, chorizo, and just the perfect hint of spices, served with tortilla chips.
-Mediterranean Goat Cheese
Baked goat cheese with balsamic glazed shallots, roasted garlic, sundried tomatoes, toasted almonds, olive oil and fresh herbs served with Asiago baked flatbread.

Anything Fried
There's no denying it, even though fried foods may not be the healthiest choice (compared to grilled items,) the flavor they posess is automatic happiness! The warmth and that crunch simply can't be beat. 

-Corn Dog Battered Crabcakes
served with spicy jalapeno mustard
-Southwestern Chipotle Chicken Rangoon
served with raspberry-chipotle dipping sauce
-Pork Tenderloin
hand breaded in parmesan & bread crumbs, served on a brioche bun with herb mayo, lettuce & tomato
