It appears to be a sleepy restaurant in the middle of nowhere but don't just drive by....stop! We really enjoyed our shrimp dinners. Our baked potatoes had REAL bacon and cheese. The atmosphere is nothing special but it is clean and friendly.

Went to Boondocks on a Thursday night. We had our order taken at 8:00 and still were not served until 8:55 for 3 shrimp baskets. We left...at this point, not even hungry, just very disappointed. It wasn't until 40 minutes of waiting the server stated 2 of the 3 fryers were broken. Poor management, poor customer service! I do not... More

Buy the hamburger special and get the sides bar. Dirty rice, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, slaw and baked beans were all on the bar. Everything was delicious and seasoned perfectly. The burger was one of the best I've ever had. We'll be back!

I found Boondocks a while back and it quickly became one of my favorite places. Always good fresh hot food... A few trips last summer weren't the best, but I've been in twice in the past two weeks and I believe some changes have been made to bring this place back to the same fantastic quality as when I first...

We've eaten many times at Boondocks, and are never disappointed with the broad mix of culinary flair. Love the fish dishes and fresh salads. Hope to be back in 2015.
