Boss Hawg's is coming back. This was the best BBQ place in Topeka for several years, tragic events changed that. The food was OK but nothing special. Now I am happy to report the BBQ is pretty good and the overall food quality is rising. I highly recommend the Cobb Salad, you won't be disappointed.

If you want BBQ and you're already in the area go ahead and stop here its not bad but its not the best I've ever had. There are plenty of places in Topeka that are better such as HHB or Lonnie Q's.

The BBQ meats were very good. The ribs and shredded brisket. We received a good portion of food. The cornbread and honey butter was very appealing. The sides were not as good that I selected. The beans were a little too sweet and coleslaw too tangy with too much of dressing or mayo.

I love this restaurant!!!! The BBQ is very good but the corn bread is fabulous!!! The prices are very reasonable and the potions are large. The service has always been great, very attentive wait staff.

The people were good, the food was ok. We got to choose between two sauces both good, but the meat was not really warm enough. I wouldn't take company there but it's a good place for meeting friends.

Boss Hawg's was not on our Topeka weekend visit itinerary, but I stumbled on it at the back of a small plaza in a strip shopping center while my wife shopped for quilting supplies. The restaurant is split in two, one side a small dark dining room & the other side a small dark sports bar. We couldn't smell the... More
