What a Pleasant surprise. Stopped for lunch one day expecting an average restaurant. Very please to find clean, friendly and wonderful food. Don't pass it by because it looks ordinary!

Really good food. Quite a variety for such a small restaurant. Prices seemed a few bucks high for each item, considering there's no view or anything.

If you enjoy ethnic food, this is the place for you. Everything on the Pakistani menu is amazing. Don't miss out on the garlic naan bread, either. It's not the most appropriate location for such a fabulous restaurant, but I just keep going back...

Well finally made it here for a meal. Arrived at 6pm on Sunday for dinner. Had the place to ourselves for about a half hour then six more people showed up. It was kind of strange, LOTS of security cameras kind of made me feel like I was being watched. Service was great and food was too but something wrong... More

Thank you for liking our "great" food and service. Like any business, we have our busy and slow times. You came in at a slow time, but it seems you were very happy with the food and service. We have been in business for over 20 years and our customers love us. Many businesses have security cameras for the "security"... More

We met friends at Boondockers for lunch after picking it from random on the internet. Looking at the menu I asked the waitperson why there was such a great selection of Pakastani dishes. She told me that is what makes the place different from everyone else. Our guests each ordered breakfast plates, my wife had the 'everything' burger and I... More

lovely little café, terrific service. Had a Denver Omelet which was excellent, and the coffee was also very good. A little difficult to find, but worth the effort! Will be my restaurant of choice as I travel up the I-5

Located in Marysville, WA, with ample parking, this restaurant is impeccably clean, spacious, offers excellent service and good food quality. Uniquely there are also personable touches via owners Shabbir and Ruqqy Bala, who merrily interact with customers. That particular element is remarkable in an era when much is rush and often impersonal. The owners care about and appreciate their customers.... More

My wife and I have eaten here a couple of times now, and have found the food consistently very good with friendly staff. The menu offers a broad array of choices such as fish & chips, curries, and burgers. The food has always been served hot and well prepared. The fish I ate had a nice breading, firm meat, and...

We stopped at Boondockers Cafe for breakfast on a drive north from Seattle - only 1/2 mile from the interstate. Very friendly waitress. Food was excellent, we had the eggs and bacon and the eggs benedict. The orange juice was incredible, very fresh. Definitely worth a detour off the highway.

This was my second time here, I thought i would give it another shot - my opinion has not changed much. I took my wife here for her bday breakfast.

Thank you for your comments about our good food. I just want to clarify a couple of comments in your review. You mention the Indian lady you thought was the helper. She is from Pakistan and happens to be the owner. The other lady was the helper.. We do not monitor or watch our customers. Our cooks may check to... More
