Food Holidays in March – The Boot’s Got You Covered!

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 Famous Pork Tenderloin – An Iowa Tradition

Serving the best BBQ in Des Moines is something we worked hard to make a reality. After all, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive is classified as a BBQ restaurant. Since we are located in the great state of Iowa, we absolutely had to come up with a way to prepare the best pork tenderloin in Des Moines too. That amazing sandwich has earned its place as an Iowa tradition!

The Famous Iowa Pork Tenderloin

Some silly people argue that the first person to create a breaded pork tenderloin was native to Indiana, but Iowans know that this delicious delicacy truly belongs to us! The pork tenderloin has been a staple in classic Iowa cuisine for as long as anyone can remember.

As last week’s blog all about pork pointed out (read it here if you missed it), Iowa produces more pigs than any other state in the U.S. and turning that asset into […]

Celebrate National Pig Day With Delicious Iowa Pork!

National Pig Day lands on March 1st and since Iowa is the nation’s largest pork-producing state, this makes an excellent topic for our Des Moines BBQ restaurant‘s blog this week. You’ll find lots and lots of delicious dishes featuring this incredible animal on the menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive.

Iowa Pork

Our great state is responsible for raising about 1/3 of the nation’s pigs. As a matter of fact, they outnumber humans in Iowa nearly 4 to 1! Over 6,000 pig farms can be found around Iowa and at any given time, there are about 22 million pigs being raised. It’s no surprise, with so many of them around, that pork is a food you’ll find throughout the Boot’s extensive menu.

Pork at the Boot

The mouthwatering, hickory-smoked pork served at Wobbly Boots BBQ is fantastic as a main dish and we love adding it to other items on the menu as […]

The Boot’s creative chefs combined our favorite parts of each of those styles to bring you the hickory-smoked goodness people can’t seem to get enough of! Combined with our house recipe BBQ sauce, the taste sensation is truly tough to […]
