Wobbly Boots BBQ

These People LOVE Wobbly Boots BBQ! How About You?

Online reviews are a wonderful tool for letting us at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse know what our most recent customers enjoyed most and what areas we can make improvements in. For anyone that hasn’t had the chance to try our family restaurant in Des Moines, those same reviews give them a sneak peek at what a visit to the Boot is like and what they can expect when they come in to dine with us. Here are a few of the most recent reviews we discovered.


“I belonged to a networking group that met here every Wednesday so I was working through the menu and never found a single item that wasn’t fabulous. I highly recommend this restaurant.” ~Rosemarie Waskel

“Great bbq choices and good servers. I have never been here for dinner, but I have enjoyed lunch here many times. My personal favorite is the smoked bbq sandwich.” ~Kyle Robberts

“The smoked prime rib hot beef sandwich hits the spot every time.” ~Dwight Porter

“It takes a lot to get 5 stars from me, this place smashed 5 stars. The food was outstanding. The catfish was one of the best I’ve ever had. The sausage and brisket were superb, great flavor and very tender brisket. Order to table time was quick for the quality. The staff were all super friendly. Even the bathroom was spotless. There is literally no downside to visiting. Please give it a shot; they very much deserve the try and you will not regret it.” ~Kieran F.

“The food at this place is delicious! I had the Brisky sandwich – brisket and smoked turkey smothered in delicious white cheese – and loved it! A friend had onion rings and they were huge and fried to perfection (and tasty…I stole one to try along with some of the dip). Oh… and I forgot to mention the to-die-for cornbread appetizer – served piping hot with honey butter – smells wonderful and tastes even better!” ~Todd Braun


“Great food and service – While passing thru the Des Moines area on a road trip, we ate at this restaurant which was within walking distance of our hotel. The food was quite good and our server was excellent! We would definitely return if in the area again.” ~Cturtle53

“Very child-friendly – The food is delicious and the atmosphere laidback at this location. Adults can enjoy a drink and everyone can visit without bothering other tables. They have a good selection of side dishes and prices are average.” ~Annette R.

“Great food – Ordered the turkey wrap and a cup of the baked potato soup. Both were excellent. Took half of my wrap home and enjoyed the next day. Love the food and price.” ~mmccubb

“Great burgers! Awesome onion rings! – We had a coupon for a free burger with the purchase of a burger, so decided to give it a try. My husband had the El Diablo and I opted for the burger melt (with substitutions on the cheeses). The burgers were cooked exactly as we ordered them. The onion rings were huge. I’ve never had them that size before and just the right amount of tasty batter. The seasoned fries were ho-hum. Crinkle cut without much seasoning. The onion rings were definitely worth the extra charge. Our waitress was cheerful and helpful. And… They had Diet Dr. Pepper which was a huge plus for me!
The patio was very enjoyable on a gorgeous summer evening.” ~LittlePaint

“Ate here for the first time Saturday and it was delicious! Was there around 1-2 and wasn’t overly busy so we got our food in a decent time. Love the music and atmosphere! Has a kid-friendly menu also. The food was so good I didn’t get a picture but we’ll definitely be repeat customers! We got the bbq pulled pork sandwich, smashed potatoes, kids Mac and cheese, and ranch burger with fries and coleslaw!” ~Stephanie Majors

“Great staff and food, staff very polite and does a great job. I highly recommend Wobbly Boots. Met the owner, very professional and respectful and they honor the veterans with a discount.” ~James Underwood

“Stopped in from out of town. The wait really wasn’t bad considering how busy they were! The tenderloin was great & our server Timothy was fantastic!” ~Tara Michelle Dawson

“We first tried this place last year and absolutely fell in love with it!!! Their Mac n Cheese is absolutely to die for!!!! I so wish that we had a Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in our hometown in Muscatine Iowa!!!!” ~Bonnie LeAnn Hudson
