From the moment you walk into the place you feel as though you've known this family for years! The owner came over and introduced himself and gushed about his trip to west Point where one of his sons has graduated. Very accomplished family. Mom makes the authentic food from old family recipes. Stop in and check it out.

Boondocker's is a reasonably priced restaurant in a small town, and one of my few go-to destinations in Marysville. What stands out to me is their consistency. Every time I've been there, the food is good and it's been a pleasant dining experience. I've certainly paid a lot more for nowhere near as nice an experience. The restaurant is clean.... More

It was our first time eating in our new town and we wanted to try something new. We asked google to send us to some place new and Boondocker's popped up. The couple that runs the place are wonderful people. If you go have the Samosas, they are to die for. Everything is cooked to order and home made so... More

Thank you for your review. It is almost impossible to respond to a vague review. I am not sure what items you ordered or what kind of soup you did not like. I don't even know what "just swimming in clop" means. One thing I would respectfully disagree with is your comment that the restaurant was not clean. Our guests... More

We went back to Boondockers again this visit and weren't disappointed! Their East Indian food is quite good. If you don't like that, there is a wide variety of foods to order. We will go there again!

Interesting variety of food - with East Indian flavors. Host was friendly and accommodating. Service a little slow.

We popped in for a late brekkie only to find out we missed the (2:00 pm closing) breakfast menu by five minutes. Despite that, we ordered a couple of sandwiches and found them, disappointingly, to be quite bland and ordinary. I suspect the Pakistani food (curries) may be the thing to go for when here. Certainly isn't the service which... More

I am sorry you came in after the 2 pm the cutoff for breakfast. We stop serving breakfast at 2 so we can set up for lunch and dinner. I see you had our Bird sandwich and our French Dip Sandwich. We cook our own Turkey and Roast Beef, the ingredients in your sandwich. Our guests love the freshly cooked... More

I had eaten here before and the curry was excellent. I took my niece is gluten free and the owner cooked her an extra meal just for her. This time I took my husband and the food was mediocre and the dishes were dirty. Such a disappointment!
