7 Fun Facts About an Irresistible Side Dish – Good Ol’ Mac & Cheese

Even though Wobbly Boots Roadhouse‘s homemade Mac & Cheese is most often considered a side dish, for some people it’s a big reason they dine at our BBQ restaurant in Des Moines. Our version is so rich, creamy, and savory that it’s nearly as famous as our award-winning hickory-smoked BBQ!

As a matter of fact, we make an entire meal out of it on the kids’ menu and it’s even become a main ingredient on one of our signature burgers. (Appropriately known as the Mac & Cheese Burger.) If you are a mac & cheese fan (and we know you all are) you will be interested to learn the intriguing facts we found out about this tasty treat.

The Intriguing History of a Delicious Appetizer – the Fried Pickle

Fried pickles are a delicious appetizer, but surprisingly enough, not a menu item that a lot of people have given a try. That seems strange to us because just about everyone loves pickles and pretty much no one can resist anything deep-fried. Also, they taste delicious paired with the best BBQ in Des Moines! The fried pickle is actually a delicacy throughout the southern United States and we’ve brought our own delicious version to Iowa at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.

Whether you decide to have fried pickles for a snack, an appetizer, or as a delicious side dish, it’s an item that is sure to be a new favorite once you’ve tasted it. Here at the Boot, each order consists of a half-pound of pickle chips that have been hand-breaded in our specially seasoned flour and then fried to a beautiful golden brown. We serve them with a side of chipotle ranch, and they even […]

An Iowa Tradition – The Famous Pork Tenderloin

Our expertise at creating the most savory hickory-smoked meats makes it obvious that we would serve BBQ, but the fact that we’re located in Iowa means that we needed to serve the best pork tenderloin in Des Moines too. After all, the pork tenderloin is an Iowa tradition, and here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive, we do our best to do this classic Iowa sandwich proud.

Some say that the first person to create a breaded pork tenderloin was native to Indiana,  but Iowans know that this delicious delicacy truly belongs to our great state! The pork tenderloin has been a staple in classic Iowa cuisine for as long as anyone can remember. Iowa produces more pigs than any other state in the U.S., and turning that asset into a traditional Midwestern favorite creates a unique sense of pride in all of us.
