May is one of our favorite months of the year here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. It happens to be National BBQ Month, and when you’re in the habit of making the best BBQ in Des Moines on a daily basis, it’s nice to see your favorite food get some extra recognition! We highly suggest you celebrate this wonderful occasion with us, and here is what you can expect when you come to the Boot.
We learned a lot from our predecessor, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, MO, and we’ve also had plenty of time to perfect the BBQ craft with our own special nuances. It all starts with a unique type of hybrid style, inspired by the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. – Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas! We combined their mouthwatering styles and created a taste that gives you the best BBQ in the Midwest.
First of all, we slow-smoke our succulent meats over hickory, which allows the incredible flavors of each type of meat to come through boldly. Next, we coat those meats (or serve them with a side of) our flavorful, house-made BBQ sauce. The end result is a plate full of hickory-smoked BBQ goodness that keeps you coming back for more again and again!
LOTS of Choices
You’ll find our hickory-smoked meats used as an ingredient in many dishes throughout our menu, but the stars of the show this month are our award-winning Bar-B-Que sandwiches and meat plates. We have a wide variety of meats that you can order on a bun, or you can instead build a plate with 1, 2, or 3 different types of meat. Our BBQ is served wet (sauced) but feel free to ask for it without the sauce (except the Burnt Ends, which are always sauced.) Your choices include:
- Smoked Sausage
- Pit Ham
- Pulled Pork
- Beef Brisket
- Burnt Ends
In addition to those tasty treats, we also serve some Classic BBQ Dinners as well. These plates will have you licking your lips, and also your fingers once you’re finished.
- Baby Back Ribs
- Half Chicken
- Chicken & Rib Combo
- Half Rack of Ribs & 1 Smoked Meat
- Half Chicken & 1 Smoked Meat
Eat Here or Get It To Go
Our Des Moines family restaurant offers a down-home family-friendly atmosphere, and we’ve got plenty of seating for groups of every size. With the weather getting nicer day by day, we totally understand if you want to make a to-go order and head to the park with it, or even your own backyard.
If you happen to be entertaining a large group, or possibly throwing your own celebration for National BBQ Month, you can take advantage of our catering options too. In many cases, with advance notice, we can even load up our Wobbly Boots BBQ catering van and bring the food to you!
Get yourself on over to Des Moines’ favorite BBQ restaurant this May and be a part of our National BBQ Month celebration. (Which kind of goes on every month here actually!) Once you taste our hickory-smoked meats and house-recipe BBQ sauce, we’re willing to bet that we’ll be seeing a lot more of you in the future!
