Once again the food at Boss Hawg's did not disappoint. Although they no longer have burnt ends on the menu, rib tips were a fine substitute. I love that Boss Hawg's puts heated BBQ sauce, both sweet and spicy, right on the table so I can have as much as I want. We had rib tips, BBQ sandwich (turkey and... More

We went out last night in Topeka to a BBQ spot recommended by the Info booth at the Mother Earth News Fair being held in Topeka. She assured me it was fabulous, I took her word for it. As I walked in I noticed that Boss Dawgs BBQ had Tiffany Lights with a dragon fly motif. That struck me as... More

I went here to get take out to take to a relative's house who was house bound. The server was so, so helpful in helping me choose what to purchase. It only took 10 minutes or so to get our order ready. She included their wonderful butter for the cornbread. We had pulled pork and one pound served four of... More

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.

Don't feel the food is worth the money. Got rid of their lunch menu, was told they just combined their lunch menu with their dinner menu,. When they did that all the lunch prices disappeared. 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
