Wobbly Boots BBQ

The Best Classic BBQ in Iowa is at The Boot!

We’ve got a wide variety of delicious foods on the menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive, so there’s always something perfect for any type of taste. The food that we are most known for and that we’ve taken great care in perfecting is the best BBQ in Des Moines.



Making sure that all of our BBQ meets the strict standards of amazing flavor you’ve come to expect from Wobbly Boots BBQ is very important to us. First, we slow-smoke our succulent meats over hickory, allowing each meat’s bold flavors to come to the forefront. Next, we coat those hickory-smoked delicacies (or serve them with a side of) our flavorful housemade BBQ sauce.

The end result is a plate full of the best tasting BBQ you’ve ever had the pleasure of putting into your mouth! These hickory-smoked meats are used as an ingredient in many of our menu creations, and we proudly serve them alone on a plate or as a sandwich next to our homestyle side dishes.

Smoked Meat Plates

All of our meat plates are served with Texas toast and your choice of two of our homestyle side dishes. You can order a plate with 1 or 2 types of meat or go for the BBQ Trio Plate. Choose from:

  • Hand-Pulled Pork
  • Sliced Turkey Breast
  • Sweet Smoked Italian Sausage
  • Applewood Smoked Ham
  • Tender Smoked Brisket
  • Our House Favorite Brisket Burnt Ends

Smoked Sausage Sandwich
A sweet and smokey Italian sausage. We slow smoke our sausage rope then slice it into pieces. A hidden house favorite!

Pulled Pork Sandwich
Our pork is covered in our house-made rub then slow smoked over hickory for 16 hours, trimmed, and hand-pulled.

Beef Brisket Sandwich
Our brisket is generously rubbed with our secret house seasonings then slow-smoked over hickory for ten hours. We thick-slice it with all the juice and bark to ensure the most mouthwatering, tender brisket possible.

Pit Ham Sandwich
Applewood double-smoked pit ham. A lean outstanding choice.

Turkey Sandwich
100% white meat turkey breast rubbed, smoked, then sliced. Tender & Delicious!!

Burnt Ends Sandwich
A Customer Favorite!! Our process begins with slow-smoked brisket we cut into small chunks then cover in extra rub, our house BBQ sauce, and delicious Guinness beer. We then re-smoke it for hours, ensuring a tender, flavorful one-of-a-kind taste. Absolutely Delicious!!!


You’ll find some additional BBQ favorites in our Classic Bar-B-Que Dinner section of the menu. These giant plates of delicious goodness are served with Texas toast and your choice of two of our homestyle side dishes.

Baby Back Ribs
Over two pounds of our slow-smoked delicious dry-rubbed baby back ribs, lightly grilled & basted in our house recipe BBQ sauce. Tender and mouthwatering. The very best in ribs!

Half Chicken
Tremendous flavor!! A half chicken generously rubbed in our house spices then slow-smoked over hickory and finished on our grill with a light glaze of our house BBQ sauce.

Chicken & Rib Combo
Yes, we did!! A half rack of our Baby Back Ribs combined with our Hickory Smoked Half Chicken. A delicious combination!
