3 Reasons Why You Can’t Resist BBQ

It’s easy to convince people to eat BBQ because it’s a type of food that is simply irresistible! The hard part is making it taste good enough that they come back for more, but that’s not a problem for us at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive! A person’s natural desire for BBQ combined with our award-winning way of preparing it creates the best BBQ in Des Moines!

Have you ever wondered just what it is about this amazing food that makes it so irresistible? We think about stuff like that all the time! The following facts are a big reason why and we bet you’ll agree.

The Aroma

The very first sensation that grabs you when it comes to BBQ is that scent that makes your mouth water immediately! Once you step into the dining room at our Des Moines family restaurant, you’re already hooked. (Sometimes it even hits you in the parking lot before you make it through the doors!)

Once that magnificent aroma hits your nose, your stomach is bound to start rumbling. If you weren’t already hungry before, you most definitely are now! Any food that can do that to your sense of smell is definitely one you want to treat your sense of taste with.

The Flavor

The art of BBQ requires patience because the best flavors come out when the cooking is done low and slow. Wobbly Boots BBQ chooses to smoke our meats. This process allows us to create the most tender, juicy, flavorful meats possible, always slow-smoking them over our favorite wood – hickory.

First, we generously coat the meats with our secret-recipe rub. It then gets a carefully selected amount of time in the smoker. The reason we use hickory is that it lends a rich, full-bodied flavor to all of our meats. Once it’s done, those meats get a dose of our house recipe BBQ sauce, and the result is a mouthwatering flavor that is irresistible!


The Variety

BBQ, especially the type we serve at the Boot, is also a very versatile meal. There are all kinds of delicious dishes to choose from, and we put them together in a variety of ways so that even the “same old meat” you usually order can be enjoyed in a delicious and fascinating new way.

We serve savory hickory-smoked meats on their own, but also as an additional ingredient in most of the dishes we serve. These meats include (but are not limited to):

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

The Boot Makes It Easy!

As if the food itself wasn’t already enough, we make it even more irresistible by taking care of all the work for you. Even the most skilled grill master will admit, it takes a lot of work to make the best BBQ, so when someone else can do it deliciously, it’s a lot easier to let them. We’ve perfected the art of cooking it, you simply get to come in and enjoy it! We even clean up the plates for you when you’re done.

The next time that you feel a BBQ craving coming on (even if it’s 7 days a week!) head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for a plateful of our mouthwateringly delicious, hickory-smoked meats. The savory aroma will grab your attention and the flavor… well, let’s just say, we’ll be seeing a lot of each other from there on out!
