There are a lot of things we love about the holiday season. Since we are the best place to watch sports in Des Moines, a big deal this time of year around Wobbly Boots Roadhouse are those college football bowl games! With 17 TVs to watch on, ice-cold beer, amazingly delicious menu items, and the best fans in Iowa to watch with, everyone wants to be here for all the games!
Cyclones Tackle the Alamo Bowl
On Friday, December 28, 2018, at 8:00 pm Iowa State will take on Washington State. Our Cyclones ended the regular season with a record of 8-4 and the Cougars sit at 10-2. This will be Iowa State’s 14th bowl appearance since 1971 and their first time at the Alamo Bowl. The Cyclones are favored in this game, but all of us here in Iowa didn’t need to be told that!
Hawkeyes Hit the Outback Bowl
The Iowa Hawkeyes will face the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the 2019 Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day, Tuesday, January 1. Kickoff is set for 11:00 am at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Both teams head into this game with an 8-4 record. This is the Hawkeyes 6th consecutive winning season. Our treasured team has made 32 bowl appearances and this will be their 6th appearance in the Outback Bowl.

With 17 TVs positioned all around our Des Moines BBQ restaurant, there’s not a bad seat in the house! It doesn’t matter whether you belly up to the bar or gather around a table with the gang, either way, you’re going to get a great view of all the action.

We’ll also have all of your hickory-smoked favorites coming out of the kitchen to keep your energy high throughout the games. Here’s a peek at some of the most popular items to enjoy along with an exciting game of football.
Our jumbo chicken wings are coated in a special house dry rub before being slow-roasted over hickory for the perfect amount of time ensuring that they are the most flavorful, juiciest wings possible. They taste amazing served plain, but they are also delicious tossed in one of our signature sauces.

This plate is a house favorite! A bed of crispy tortilla chips smothered in our homemade pepper jack queso and topped with our house-smoked pulled pork and legendary baked beans. It’s finished with cheddar jack cheese, red onion, and tomatoes and served with a side of homemade salsa and sour cream.
