5 Reasons You’re Going to LOVE Wobbly Boots Roadhouse

We’ve met a lot of people from and around Des Moines since the doors of Wobbly Boots Roadhouse opened, but we know there are still some of you out there that we are yet to meet. There are all kinds of reasons why you might not have made it to our Des Moines family BBQ restaurant yet and we totally understand. Today we’ve got 5 reasons that we know you are going to love it here once you make the trip. Maybe this little bit of extra incentive is just what you’ve been waiting for!

The BBQ… (Duh!)

You don’t boast having the best BBQ in Des Moines unless you have the mouthwatering, hickory-smoked, house-recipe BBQ dishes to prove it, and that’s exactly what we serve 7 days a week right here at the Boot! Our style is best described as hybrid BBQ. It is a unique blend of the flavors and styles of the BBQ meccas of the good ol’ USA: Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, Texas, and the deep South.

The meats are generously coated in our special dry rub and smoked low and slow over hickory for maximum flavor and tenderness. Before serving, we add our house-recipe sauce (which we make right here) to complement the flavor of the meat. Our menu is filled with a fantastic variety of BBQ choices, as well as plenty of non-BBQ dishes that are every bit as tasty.


Happy Hour

Five days a week you can join us for the best Happy Hour in Des Moines! Every Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm we invite you to pull up a bar stool (or sit at any table in the restaurant) and enjoy a few hours out of your day relaxing and socializing. We’ll have specialty drinks available at special prices plus you can enjoy any of our 18 draft beers at a discount! (Yes, that also includes the many local Iowa brews that we always have on tap!) It’s a great place to meet up with old friends and even make a few new ones.

Weekly Specials

Twice a week, every Friday and Saturday night after 5:00 pm, we add an irresistible menu item to our already extensive menu – Smoked Prime Rib! We generously cover each whole choice prime rib with our own wet rub and then hickory-smoke them 5 hours, ensuring the juiciest, most flavorful prime rib in Des Moines. Our Smoked Prime Rib Dinner is available as a 10-oz. or a 14-oz. cut and is served with Texas toast and your choice of 2 of our homestyle side dishes.

Also two times weekly you can head to the Boot early for the best weekend brunch in Des Moines. Starting at 9:00 am every Saturday and Sunday, our brunch menu is available. It features breakfast classics plus lots of specialty creations with our very own Wobbly Boots’ twist. It’s a great way to get your day started!

Live Music

Occasionally our stage is graced with the best live music in Des Moines. Shows generally start around 9:00 pm so that you can come in before the music begins for dinner and stick around into the evening dancing and enjoying some fantastic entertainment. Coming up soon, we’ve got the Damon Dotson Trio on Saturday, January 19, 2019, and on Saturday, February 9, 2019, Trainwreck will be hitting the stage. An easy way to stay up-to-date with our live music is to watch our social media pages, or you can just come in to visit us often and simply ask!

Fun With Friends or the Family

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has a down-home, family-friendly atmosphere that people of all ages can enjoy. We have a terrific kids menu for the little ones, and you can always ask for our BBQ sauce to be served on the side for those youngsters that are learning to love the more “grown-up” dishes.

That same family-friendly atmosphere is also a wonderful place to gather with a big group of friends. Whether you’re meeting for lunch, having dinner together, joining us for Happy Hour, or gathering to catch a game on our 18 TVs, you’ll all feel right at home.

Now you must be intrigued, so go ahead and make plans to come into Wobbly Boots BBQ soon! We’re very excited to meet you and once you’ve given us a try, we’ll surely be seeing a lot more of each other!
