Best Server: Stacy Vaughn

According to the Fitbit that counts the number of steps she takes, Wobbly Boots server Stacy Vaughn walks several miles a night.
“I wear  it when Iwork a double shift because I’m curious how many miles I walk when we’re busy. I’ve walked up to 8-9 miles on a busy weekend night.” 
She’s been serving customers at this award-winning barbecue joint in Osage Beach for six years.
“The Barretts are very good people to work for. All three of their restaurants have servers, bartenders and kitchen staff who have been with them for years. We are all like family.
