Well, obviously, both! The awesome appetizers at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse can be enjoyed as either a snack to share with a few friends between meals, a few small bites to share with the table before a big meal, or you can eat the entire plate by yourself. Our Des Moines BBQ restaurant‘s appetizers are hearty enough when you don’t share to be considered a meal on their own. (As a matter of fact, the Wobbly Sampler may be too big for just one person to handle without a little help!)
