Best family owned restaurant!

Boondockers is a great family owned restaurant! We drive past 3 breakfast restaurants to come here. The service is always spot on and and the food is amazing. Never have we had a bad experience. They have everything from steak and eggs to salads, fish and chips and deserts. Boondockers has... read more

After a visit to the near by Hibulb Cultural Center we chose Boondockers as it is not a chain eating place. The idea of food from Pakistan, where I once visited on business years ago, appealed to me. Our lentil soup was very good as was a vegetarian Pakistani dish and nan bread I ordered. The food was well served... More

Very disappointed in quality of American food. Met our son-in-law for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Only one other table occupied. Never been there before but trusted Trip Advisor reviews--disappointed--won't go there again.

We have finally found where the owners of the Lake Stevens Boondockers are now! (It only took me ten years to think about looking for them on Trip Advisor! ) The Boondockers Café was the perfect place for our after-church breakfast today in Marysville. The service and food were amazing. Pancakes, eggs, hash browns, potatoes O'Brien, eggs over easy, scrambled... More

After reading the good reviews, we decided to make reservations and come here for the Thanksgiving dinner specials they offered. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and were seated. As we sat in a very quiet restaurant that was less than half full with only 7 or 8 tables of people, we came to notice that there... More

Sorry, we sold out the 8 oz Prime Rib earlier than expected.. We did a lot more business this Thanksgiving then we did the last few. We started serving the dinner specials at 12 noon. More people ordered the Prime Rib and we ran out early. By the way every one loved all our specials. I see from your review... More

The restaurant wasn't very busy late on a Saturday night, so we almost gave it a pass, but very glad we went. We tried the Pakistani dishes and I can say the Jingha Masala (with a little Naan bread for dipping the sauce) was superb. The accompanying vegetables were hot and a bit crunchy, which is a refreshing change from... More

So I have passed this place up may times..What a mistake. I have eaten here twice in the last month and its it best Omelet I have had in years. A tad spendy it... More

Wait staff friendly. Food OK, there are better lunch restaurants in Marysville. We find the food too greasy for our taste.

Wow Glenn. 8 reviews done in one day? You must have great memory. Please let us know what you ordered that was greasy. We serve fresh homemade food cooked to order. Sorry you feel our food was not to your liking and taste. More
