The team here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse loves checking out the “bizarre” holidays calendar to see what type of unique holidays are headed our way. We already covered National Pig Day on March 1 in a previous blog and apparently, all of March is National Celery Month. You might think that would not be something a BBQ restaurant in Des Moines would cover, but on the contrary, we’ve got a perfect tribute! March 19 also happens to be National Poultry Day and around here, those last two celebrations tie together quite nicely.
How Do You Celebrate Celery?
The best answer for this fits in with the poultry topic too, and that’s “alongside a plate full of Wobbly Wings!” (That goes for both our bone-in and boneless varieties!) We find that celery can be pretty boring eaten by itself but serving it with hot wings seems to make this vegetable a lot more attractive.
The cold crunchiness is a nice contrast to the meatiness of our perfectly hickory-smoked wings. If you happen to choose a wing sauce that’s a hot one, that celery dipped in dressing is the perfect way to cool your taste buds down for another spicy bite. When it comes to sauces, your delicious choices include; BBQ (of course), Habanero BBQ, Jamaican Jerk, Wobbly Hot, Jalapeno Garlic, and Chipotle Buffalo.
Tastes Like Chicken…
As for National Poultry Day, there are a lot more ways to celebrate that here at the Boot. Most sections of our menu have at least one tasty chicken option. Here’s a look at a few of those:
Buffalo Bacon Chicken & Jalapeno Flatbread
Our flatbread covered in our chipotle buffalo sauce topped with grilled chicken breast, bacon, and jalapenos topped with our five-cheese pizza blend and finished with ranch dressing.
Spinach Artichoke Chicken Flatbread
Our homemade spinach artichoke dip generously spread over our flatbread topped with a five-cheese mozzarella blend, chicken, diced tomatoes, and finished with Parmesan cheese.
Chicken Fried Chicken
A juicy all-white chicken breast tenderized, hand-breaded, and fried to golden perfection. Next, we add some smashed potatoes slathered with white country gravy and serve it all with a side of green beans.
Chicken Strip Basket
All-white boneless chicken tenders hand-cut, buttermilk battered, and hand-breaded to order in our own seasoned flour. Served with your choice of one of our signature side dishes and ranch or honey mustard.
Grilled Chicken Salad
Mixed greens, tomatoes, red onions, cheddar-jack cheese, five-cheese mozzarella blend, bacon, and hard-boiled egg topped with a charbroiled chicken breast.
Honey Mustard Chicken Wrap
Our charbroiled chicken breast cooked perfectly with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, five cheese mozzarella blend, and our housemade honey mustard dressing, served in a warm wheat tortilla. Delicious!
Buffalo Chicken Wrap
Our homemade chicken tenders fried and tossed in our chipotle buffalo sauce with lettuce, tomato, cheddar-jack cheese, and ranch dressing, served in a warm wheat tortilla. (Simply ask for no buffalo for a regular chicken tender wrap.)
WB Chicken Sandwich
Our all-white chicken breast charbroiled to perfection and topped with our double-smoked ham and Swiss cheese served on a toasted bun with a side of honey mustard. Pickle, lettuce, onion, and tomato available on request.
Tremendous flavor!! A half chicken generously rubbed in our house spices, slow-smoked over hickory, and finished on the 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.
In our opinion, any day you dine at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive is a holiday for your taste buds! These fun calendar holidays just give you a bonus excuse for coming out to enjoy the best BBQ in Des Moines. No matter what you’re in the mood to celebrate, we’ll find a delicious way to help you do it!
