OMG! I've had BBQ from coast to coast, NC BBQ with slaw, great Texas brisket, the KC specials, and my growing-up BBQ mutton in western KY. The BBQ at Boxer's just beat them all! The meat was so incredibly tasty & tender in the brisket, the ribs, the shanks, the chicken. Don't need sauce, but the ones on the table... More

Don't be fooled by just diving by this place. I seriously considered not going in, but read (and had faith) in the other reviewers on T.A. Among the BEST BBQ I've had. The building and the interior is nothing to brag about; forget about it!....the ribs (baby's or spare - we had both), pulled pork and Brisket are sensational. You... More

Delicious! Brisket is tender and tasty! Pulled pork sandwich is great as well! Can't go wrong - try it all!

Attention to detail...that's what makes Boxer BBQ great. They understand the process for doing it right - time, quality meat and attention to detail. I usually order and take it home but have eaten in a few timesas well. Basic amenities and atmosphere but very friendly. Try the pulled pork...right up there with Oklahoma Joes in KC!

We were in town for a family wedding and decided to try this place. Great find. The owner is quite the pitmaster and he enjoys talking with you about his product. I asked a question about one of the meats and he came out and chatted for quite a while--friendly, articulate and he knows his stuff. A few warnings. No... More

I found Boxer BBQ while searching tripadvisor for a BBQ joint in Omaha. I read some of the other reviews and figured we would make the seven mile drive over the river and boy am I glad I did. Don't let the out side scare you away as it did to my family and best friend who where less then... More

From the outside we were not sure if we were coming to a catering company or a restaurant. We almost left but decided to poke our heads in and see if this was a place to eat. What a treat. The nachos were the best! The sandwiches we ordered were very generous, and the beans and the cornbread were wonderful.... More

The location and restaurant itself is not fancy, but it is a hidden gem. All other barbeque has been ruined for me in comparison to Boxer. Do not dine here without trying the beef brisket, corn bread, and the potato salad.

The restaurant isn't in the best location (kind of hard to get to) but the food is awesome. My husband & I always get a 3-meat dinner with ribs for him, chicken for me, and brisket that we share. The beans are great too, flavored with meat and bbq sauce. You can get fries but it's an additional charge; they... More

Finally tried Boxer BBQ in Council Bluffs. Closest thing to good KC-style barbecue in the Omaha metro area. Really, really good ribs and a pulled pork/beef brisket combo sandwich. The best side was an order of beans- nicely done with little chunks of rib meat in them. Good slaw and potato salad. The corn on the cob was overcooked and... More
