We made a quick weekend road trip to Topeka. By the time we got checked in to the hotel, we were famished. A friend had recommended Boss Hawg's, so off we went. The atmosphere was good, the wait staff was great, but the food just didn't measure up. The veggies and coleslaw were the stand-out dishes, which should never be... More

Unassuming place in the back of a strip mall. But the service was quick with our party of 11. The pulled pork was terrific as was any type of spareribs. Nicely done sides including the fresh veg. The coleslaw was my fave

Enjoyed our supper of BBQ with fantastic cornbread, fresh veggies and a wonderful cookie. Pulled pork-slaw sandwich is great. There is a Restaurant.com offer to enjoy.

Big boss sandwich is now 11.99. Got a ham and brisket big boss sandwich, there was hardly any brisket on it at all and the... More

We were in Topeka for the USSSA Class C Fastpitch World Series and wanted to find a good BBQ. Found Boss Hawg's on Trip Advisor. We called ahead for reservations and they were able to accomodate our group of 20 in the "loft." Anthony was our server and did a terrific job satifying our needs. Corn bread and honey butter...

My wife, kids, and I were in town visiting family and wanted to go to a Topeka original instead of a chain restaurant for our outing. Heather, our server was great; both attentive and personable. It was a great start. The cornbread was good and our family loved the fried pickles for an appetizer; however, the experienced turned very sour... More

Boss Hawgs was an excellent choice. The brisket sandwich was fantastic, and the complimentary corn bread was mighty tasty. The bar area is smoke free with... More

Good smoke flavor. Back a bit in a shopping plaza but worth finding. Love the area, just passing through but would come back.
