The best place to watch football in Des Moines is from the comfortable seats in our restaurant in front of our 17 TVs. That is if you’re not watching from the actual stadium, of course. (Unless it’s cold & rainy. Then it’s much better here!)
The Wobbly Boots Roadhouse menu is full of mouthwatering menu items, including 5 of the most popular foods to tailgate with. You can eat them here, or you can pick them up to take with you to the parking lot of your team’s stadium or a party at your place. Either way, you’re going to want to get a plateful of these!
This is a perfect food for tailgating because you are expected to eat it with your hands, meaning no silverware to mess with and plates are optional. (Of course, you’d better have a LOT of napkins handy!) If you’re taking our Wobbly Wings to go, consider getting your favorite sauces on the side for dipping to make it a little less messy. If you’re eating them here, we’ll give you a plate and plenty of wet naps!
A big, juicy burger is a classic football food item. The toppings you add make a big difference, but it’s how you prepare the burger that really matters. All of our burgers are made from 100% hand-pattied Black Angus ground chuck, grilled on a flat-top iron, and served on a fresh soft bun. The best in the Midwest!
Much like chicken wings, you’re going to eat these with your hands and you’re going to get messy! (But isn’t that part of the fun?) You can get as messy as you like when you eat our slow-smoked, dry-rubbed, Baby Back Ribs that are grilled and basted in our house-recipe BBQ sauce. It’s easy to wash off when you’re finished, and if you’re eating it in the football stadium parking lot, well, you are outside.
A heaping helping of hand-pulled, hickory-smoked pork on a fresh bun always hits the spot, and after all, why not have a little pig before watching your team throw around the “pigskin?” Our savory pulled pork is available on our “Bulk to Go” menu, along with many other delicious dishes, and allows you to serve a great big crowd of people all at once. (Don’t forget to add a few homestyle side dishes to your menu too!)
CHIPS & DIP
It’s always good to have a few foods available for when you just want to munch, and chips & dips are perfect for this. Here at the Boot, we’ve got platters of Chips, Salsa, & Queso, and you can also order our house-recipe Spinach & Artichoke Dip. Another favorite is our famous BBQ Pork Nachos, which gives you two items from this list on one plate!
We love it when a big crowd gathers in our Des Moines BBQ restaurant to watch football with us, but if you get to attend a few games in person, pick up your favorite Wobbly Boots Roadhouse tailgate-ready foods to go on your way to the stadium. We also have catering available if you’ll be throwing a football-watching party at your place, and if you spend at least $100 and give us 24 hours notice, we’ll deliver it to you! Your favorite team will provide the excitement, and we’ll provide the delicious food to enjoy while you watch the game.
