Everyone working here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive seems happy almost all of the time, and as we look around the room of our BBQ restaurant in the Des Moines area, our customers look extremely happy too. It could just be a coincidence, but it’s much more likely that it has something to do with the BBQ! What would make us think that? Well, here are 5 very good reasons and we believe you’ll agree.
All it takes is opening the front doors of our family-friendly restaurant in Des Moines and the glorious scent of hickory smoke puts a smile on your face before you even realize it’s there! Once you shake yourself back to reality, you may notice the other scents of the various menu items being served around the room. Now that happiness turns into excitement about getting seated and ordering your own delicious-smelling dish.
Next comes that glorious, mouthwatering flavor! Underneath, there’s the distinct taste of the hickory smoke that our meats are slow-cooked in for hours. If you’ve decided to have yours served “wet” (and we highly suggest that you do) you’ve got the added flavor of our house-made, secret recipe BBQ sauce too. It only takes a bite to turn your grin into a great big BBQ-coated smile!
Our hickory-smoked meats alone give you all kinds of choices, allowing you to try something different each time that you visit. Another option is to bring a big group of people with you, order all of our smoked meats at once, and share with the table. You get to choose from: Hand-Pulled Pork, 100% White Meat Turkey Breast, Sweet Smoked Italian Sausage, Applewood Smoked Pit Ham, Tender Smoked Brisket, and our house-favorite Brisket Burnt Ends. Once you’ve tried all of that, we’ve also got a great big menu filled with even more options that are equally as amazing. So many choices!
It Brings People Together
The Boot is a perfect place to bring the entire family or meet up with a group of friends. The atmosphere is inviting, and the staff here is friendly and welcoming. You can simply enjoy a nice dinner together any night of the week, or you can gather for a special occasion and celebrate. We’ve got 17 TVs throughout the restaurant, so it’s also the best place to watch sports in Des Moines every time your favorite team plays. (Even if it’s not your favorite team, it’s still fun to watch!)
It Pairs Great With Beer
They don’t call it “Happy Hour” for nothing! Every Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm we host the best Happy Hour in Des Moines with awesome specials on mixed drinks and beer. You’ll find great deals on your drinks during many of the games, too. We have a full bar so that we can mix up all of your favorite cocktails, and in addition to the large variety of bottled beers we carry, there are 18 beers on tap, including many of the best Iowa craft brews. Belly up to the bar, place your order, and maybe even make a few new happy friends while you’re there.
That’s a lot of reasons to be happy during dinner (or lunch, or Happy Hour!) Come on out to the best BBQ restaurant in Des Moines and see how happy we can make you feel. As for those of you that have already had this joyous experience, come on, admit you’re happy every time you visit us at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. We’re most definitely ecstatic every time that you do!
