“Nothing fancy but very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

This is a little out of the way in a strip mall but was worth the trip. The brisket tips were excellent and such a good cut of meat they were more like roast the brisket. The service was great and food worth going back for. It was a little on the pricey side but worth it for our only BBQ stop on our trip.

“Great place to catch up with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012 via mobile

We ate at Boss Hawg's on St. Patrick's Day because we were looking for a quiet place to have lunch and catch up with old friends. It was perfect for that! We could have sat on the sports bar side, but opted for the quieter side that still had tv's showing the local NCAA tourney team's game, just without the sound. We ordered three different bbq sandwiches and all were very good. The fries were delicious, and while waiting for our food we were served delicious cornbread and butter. Our service was excellent, and we didn't feel rushed as we chatted with our friends.

“Favorite BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

We eat here often, as it is our neighborhood BBQ restaurant.
It is a bit more expensive than some places, but the food is consistently great. Try the potato salad. They have other items on the menu, too.

“Ok But Still Searching....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

I have eaten at many good BBQ restaurants around the State and still am searching for the magic one in Topeka. This restaurant is not bad but it just doesn't hold up to many BBQ joints in KC or Wichita.
