5 Reasons We Love Iowa in the Fall

We absolutely love working at the best BBQ restaurant in Des Moines this time of year because Iowa is an amazing place to experience the season of autumn. Just in case you haven’t had the pleasure of an Iowa fall, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has listed 5 of our favorite things about the experience for you in today’s blog.


Fall brings football, and Iowa has two teams that we absolutely love to watch – the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones! The Boot is the best place to watch football in Des Moines because we’ve got 17 TVs placed strategically around the restaurant so there’s not a bad seat in the house. The family-friendly atmosphere makes it the perfect place to enjoy a game with a young football fan, and the fully-stocked bar & classic football foods, like nachos and wings, make it equally as great for watching with other adults. Our customers are the best fans around, and if you can’t get to the stadium in person, watching right here with us is definitely the next best thing!


If you’re not tailgating, there’s a good chance you’re out picking apples or exploring a pumpkin patch. Des Moines has plenty of that to offer this time of year, and it’s not hard to discover a festival featuring those things and much more. You can find an entire list of things to do to fill your season with fun when you visit Fall in Des Moines online.

Vibrant Colors

Autumn in the Midwest is a sight to behold. The leaves are changing into all kinds of gorgeous colors everywhere that you look. The scenery doesn’t get much better than an autumn view of the Iowa countryside. There are plenty of places to enjoy a leisurely drive through the country, and Des Moines boasts over 600 miles worth of trails where you can stroll or take a bike ride and enjoy nature’s show.

Crisp, Cool Air

The temperatures are awesome too. Summers can get extremely hot around here, and winters can be incredibly cold, but fall is just right! Sunny days have just a slight chill to them, and the humidity levels drop noticeably. It’s perfect for enjoying an afternoon outside or an evening by the campfire.

Hot, Tasty Treats

Once you head indoors from the cooler weather, a hot delicious meal is the perfect thing to warm you up from the inside out. This is especially true at Wobbly Boots BBQ, where our hickory-smoked meats are just the thing to do the trick! Our Southern Comfort Food menu items really hit the spot on a chilly day, like the Smoked Meatloaf or the Smoked Turkey Dinner. (Both year-round favorites!) We’ve even got bowls of the best Baked Potato Soup in Des Moines hot and ready for you on a daily basis.

Make the effort to plan a day especially for getting out and experiencing everything that there is to enjoy about the Des Moines area this time of year. After your adventure, be sure to come into our Des Moines family BBQ restaurant and tell us all about it while you enjoy a hot, delicious plateful of hickory-smoked goodness! It’s a great time of year to be in Iowa, and we look forward to enjoying it with you.
