“Great smoked meat sandwich! They have the widest and tastiest onion rings I’ve ever had. I’ll post more the next time because I’m going back!” ~Ronnie Fairchild

“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

“I love Wobbly. Spectacular BBQ for a great value. Always wonderful service and you will most likely not be waiting more than 10 min at most for your food. Staff is usually on point as they make sure you are enjoying the dining experience. I’ll forever be a customer as I’ve never had a poor experience at any time and I’ve been here dozens of times.” ~Cory Mitchell

“Good barbecue. Wife is not a barbecue fanatic. This place may have won her over! Woohoo for me!” ~Rod Schwenneker


“We stopped over for the night and ate here. The food was good and the service was great. Portions seemed very reasonable. The Cowboy Cobb Salad was HUGE!” ~Roberta B.

“Cool Place… Great BBQ: The Wobbly Boots Roadhouse restaurant has a great “country and western” atmosphere. We ate on the bar side and it is an excellent place to watch a game with numerous TVs. They had a nice selection of craft beers on tap with many local varieties. I had a brisket sandwich and it was excellent! I will definitely come back when visiting Des Moines.” ~RobR896

“WOW!!! Went for lunch one afternoon to check this place out. My husband ordered the tenderloin with a side of beans, and I ordered the burnt ends sandwich with a side of fries. The burnt ends were falling off the bun and were delicious! Very generously heaped! The tenderloin could have filled two or three buns easily and had an amazing breading. Everything was very good. The service was fantastic – refilling drinks and getting us everything we needed before we asked. Christina was our server and was very friendly and personable. The atmosphere and look of the place is cool and very original country type style, fitting with the food served. The menu offered a large variety from burgers, flatbreads, appetizers, sandwiches, platters, wraps. Definitely will be back!” ~JerriAL1

“Great food, great drinks, and great service!! But best of all this place is peanut safe!! As a grandmother to a grandson who is allergic to peanuts, what a relief to know they do not have anything on the menu that comes in contact with peanuts!! They should be proud and say it loud!!” ~Kerri Allen Rubenbauer

“The waitresses were great with our party of 30.” ~Chris McKnight Wilmeth

“Haven’t had a bad experience yet! Atmosphere is fantastic, great place to get great food and not have to get dressed up. And we can watch sports!” ~Stacy Henningsen

“The food, while reasonably priced, is delicious. The sweet Italian sausage and the brisket burnt ends are really good. The atmosphere is a relaxed, western theme sports bar. The staff is friendly.” ~Colleen Jones

“The Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Salad is the bomb!!! Such great food and service!!” ~Kris Meyer Neal

“Great food. Reasonable prices. The brisket is amazing. I had the burnt ends tonight they are fabulous. The cheese corn side is still my favorite.” ~Tara Adams Knapp
