Fun Facts About Iowa Food We Bet You Didn’t Know

Iowa’s official nickname is “The Hawkeye State,” but another nickname we are known by is “The Corn State” or sometimes the “Land Where the Tall Corn Grows.” We are also well-known for the many hogs that inhabit Iowa and, of course, one particular famous sandwich that’s a staple at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. These facts have inspired our BBQ restaurant in Des Moines to dig up a few fun facts about some of the tasty foods that Iowa helps to make great.

CORN

DID YOU KNOW that farming encompasses about 90% of the land in Iowa? It’s true! Many of those farms have helped to make Iowa the nation’s leading producer of corn and corn byproducts. Our unofficial state song is “The Corn Song,” which clearly states that “that’s where the tall corn grows!”

Flatbread vs. Pizza – What’s The Difference?

Some places serve pizza while others serve flatbreads, which causes many people to ask if there’s really a difference between the two. Well, first of all, the Big City Flatbreads we serve at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive are packed full of flavors to rival any pizza you’ve ever bitten into! Beyond that, there are a few other things that set the two foods apart from each other.

Not the Same, But Similar

Pizza is defined as a yeasted flatbread typically topped with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in an oven. It is commonly also topped with meats, vegetables, and condiments.

Flatbread “pizza” is generally made on a thinner, crispier crust using lighter toppings and sauce. Most often the sauce used is not a tomato sauce.

Since they have differing definitions, technically there is a slight difference between the two. Some people would love to argue the fact that pizzas and flatbreads are not […]

Fight the Chill of Fall With Southern Comfort Foods & Harvest Entrees

This is officially our final week of summer for 2019 with fall arriving on Monday, September 23. Sure, there will still be a few warm weeks to enjoy before the chill of autumn completely settles over us, but just the thought of those crisp, chilly evenings on the way make us hungry for hot, hearty, comfort foods and big, savory dinners.

Southern Comfort Foods

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has an entire section of our Des Moines family restaurant menu dedicated to Southen comfort foods. Comfort food can bring you contentment if it brings about a nostalgic memory of delicious dishes from your childhood. Classic recipes that have been around for ages. You may also get a warm, comforting feeling due to the fact that these foods are often a bit higher in calories with a high carbohydrate level, which fills you up and warms the body.

Chicken Fried Chicken
