5 Things That Dads and BBQ Have in Common

Father’s Day weekend is upon us (Sunday, June 16, 2019) and we bet you are racking your brain for the perfect present to give good old Dad. Well, look no further! Lunch, dinner, or maybe even brunch at the best BBQ restaurant in Des Moines is something that any father will love. Dads and BBQ have a lot in common, after all. Here is our Wobbly Boots Roadhouse list of similarities between these two great things.

D-A-D and B-B-Q

Three small letters make up these two short words that = great big, wonderful things! No man in your life rates bigger than Dad and no flavor rates higher than our house-recipe BBQ sauce. You can even pick up a bottle to put a bow on and give to your father to take home.

June is for Turkey Lovers

One would think that turkeys would be recognized closer to Thanksgiving, but it turns out that National Turkey Month is actually in June. Maybe it’s set up that way so you have the extra incentive to enjoy this delicious bird both in the fall and in the spring.

If you’ve had a chance to taste the turkey we serve up on a daily basis at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive, you don’t need any extra encouragement to order it. As one of our most popular hickory-smoked meats in Des Moines, turkey plays an important part in many of the mouthwatering menu items we proudly serve.

 

Bring on the Turkey

Our Des Moines BBQ restaurant proudly serves up 100% white meat turkey breast that has been rubbed, hickory-smoked, and sliced to perfection right here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. Not only does it taste fantastic, but turkey is also low in fat and high in […]

Discover the Best Burgers in the Midwest

Even though we are most widely known for serving up the best BBQ in Des Moines, our talented kitchen crew can do a lot more than just that mouthwatering, hickory-smoked BBQ. For example, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse‘s burgers are the best in the Midwest! A lot of care, attention to detail, and high-quality ingredients go into each and every burger patty that we create.

This Is How We Do It

First of all, the best burgers in Des Moines are made from 100% Black Angus ground chuck, which happens to be the tastiest, most tender cut of beef available. Next, we shape every patty by hand to ensure that it is the perfect size to meet our high-quality standards. Once it’s ready, we place it on a flat-top iron until it reaches the most delicious degree of doneness and then lovingly place it on a fresh, hot bun.

That patty would taste incredible on […]

Happy National Prime Rib Day! – Celebrate at the Boot

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 […]

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.

English Origins
