National Prime Rib Day falls on a Saturday this year (April 27) and that just so happens to be one of the 2 days each week when we serve the best prime rib in Des Moines! We are famous for our mouthwatering hickory-smoked meats at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive and our hickory-smoked Prime Rib Dinner is a delicious way to celebrate this fantastic cut of steak.
Why Is Prime Rib So Delicious?
Prime rib is one of the most savory, juicy, and flavorful cuts of meat you can get from a cow. This particular cut of beef is sometimes referred to as a standing rib roast, and it’s the finest cut of beef you will find. It is cut from the primal rib, one of the eight primal cuts of beef. The amount of marbling found on prime rib makes a big difference in the quality. The more fat that is woven throughout a […]

We already serve the best brunch in Des Moines every Saturday and Sunday, but for Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019, we’re doing it even bigger and better with a special holiday brunch buffet. Instead of spending all morning in the kitchen, bring the entire family to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive so you can enjoy a delicious meal together but leave all the hard work to us!
Easter Brunch at the Boot
From 10:00 am-2:00 pm on Easter Sunday this year, we are setting up another one of our famous holiday lunch buffets. After all of the Easter Bunny’s eggs are found, bring the entire gang to our family restaurant in Des Moines for a late breakfast, lunch, or a bit of both. (That’s the beauty of brunch!)
Reservations are not required but are recommended since our breakfast buffets tend to attract a big crowd. Brunch is $16.99 for adults, $7.99 for kids […]

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.
Since macaroni is pasta, many assume it’s an Italian dish but it is actually of English origin.
It’s a Classic
There is evidence that this dish made of pasta and cheese has been around since the 14th […]

Although we advertise ourselves mainly as a BBQ restaurant in Des Moines, that’s not the only delicious dish we specialize in. The menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive is full of all kinds of amazing flavors. There’s truly something for everyone, even if you have fellow diners in your group that aren’t particularly BBQ lovers. (Hard to believe, but a few do exist!) You’ll find black Angus burgers, juicy steaks, Southern comfort foods, down-home sandwiches, and so much more. Today we’ll be featuring two other alternative menu items, our savory salads and fantastic flatbreads.
Go For the Greens
Salads are a great way to get in a full serving of fresh, healthy vegetables. Some might say that a simple salad isn’t enough to fill them up, but a Wobbly Boots BBQ salad is anything but simple! These particular salads are more than enough to satisfy your hunger plus we add our hickory-smoked […]

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 […]

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.
The Famous Pork Tenderloin – Wobbly Boots-Style
We simply […]
