Great tasting food with a variety of BBQ. We were greeted, seated, and a large variety menu was brought for our selection. Very friendly staff.

Wonderful flavor and great owner's. Probably the Best BBQ in Council Bluffs, IA. Smoky flavor. Love the pulled pork.

It's a down-home atmosphere and the food is distinctively tasty and plentiful. We normally order ahead and frequently get it to go. Chains don't hold a candle to Boxer.

BBQ is average at best, but that's probably because I'm a certified Kansas City Barbeque Society judge, for almost 10 years. Boxer BBQ is really nothing special. Slow service, expensive for a quick lunch. Probably won't return. It's very disappointing. I've heard it was good, but those who think Boxer is good probably don't really know what good barbeque really... More

Boxer BBQ was a place I have driven by and always wondered about. There is so little BBQ in the Omaha, CB area. I was a bit put off online when I checked the menu and thought it to be a bit pricey, so hesitated. Finally three of us went and I was not disappointed. I had the combo sandwich,... More

Stopped in between some softball games and bought a pound of brisket to go. Wanted burnt ends, which they don't do, but they accommodated me by putting in some of the barky edges of the brisket. It was very tender and tasty. So good, I couldn't stop eating it, and ended up with the meat sweats. Their original sauce was... More

Something big has changed here. This used to be my go-to for BBQ. It was a Friday night at 7:00PM. The last time we were here, the place was packed. There were only 3 tables occupied. That should have been the first clue. We arrived and waited to be seated like last time. Oh, it is now seat yourself. So,... More

It is always a difficult decision as to what do I want to order. The barbeque nachos are to die for. Take cash. They have an ATM there, as they no longer accept cards. But by the time I pay the ATM fee and my bank fee, there is $5 added to the cost of my meal.
