Good BBQ and friendly people

Boss Hawg is a really great place to eat. The BBQ is very good. Be sure to try the brisket chili. I really enjoyed that and my wife liked the small brisket sandwich. The fries were steak style and very well done. The staff was friendly and attentive. Would recommend you try this place!

I will apologize up front - I usually rate a BBQ restaurant based on their side dishes and the BBQ sauce!! I found the side dishes to be average and the sauce good, but not exceptional. I do like Boss Hawg's for ordering meat for a larger gathering. Expensive, but good and I can provide my own sides.

Before eating at Boss Hawg's I heard both positive and negative reports. I only ate at Boss Hawg's once and I will never go back. The restaurant was empty, but it still took a long time to get service. Our waitress was friendly, but it was difficult to get refills. The food was dry. I did not enjoy Boss Hawg's... More

I have been eating at Boss Hawgs since it opened. They have won many awards for their BBQ sauce, but awards are meaningless unless YOU personally like it. And we do. We have eaten at alot of BBQ places in the Midwest and this is our favorite. From their sandwiches, ribs, chicken, fries, baked beans, to their corn bread....it is... More

Boss Hawg's food was sent to my workplace as a thank you from a vendor. The food was great and they have the best baked beans ever! Heck, I'd go just for the beans. Corn bread is very yummy. I took my father for lunch awhile back and the food is a little pricy but all BBQ places are anymore.

We were a party of three our food was cold and not what we expected from a bbq restaurant. We didn't finish our food to the point the waiter asked us why because only a few bites from each of our plates were eaten. We explained our displeasure and were not given a resolve Just the check which was upwards... More

Three of us enjoyed a very delicious lunch. I had their small sandwich with pork and brisket along with a side order of baked beans. The baked beans contain raisins which really add to their taste. They are the best baked beans I have eaten. Their corn bread and butter is excellent too. I look forward to returning again soon!

The restaurant is under new ownership within the last year. Previous owner ran it into the ground and allowed the Friday and Saturday night bar crowd to be over run by the local criminal element. New owner is doing better with keeping that crowd out. Food is getting better and is worth a stop. I always try and support a... More

Went here on recommend of the hotel as best in Topeka and an award winner. Disappointed the meat was dry and the coleslaw was very heavy on mayonnaise. Baby back ribs nothing to write home about, same with the unremarkable brisket and pulled pork, not very hot! You can do better. Next time I'll try Famous Dave's chain, never been... More
