A small red roofed restaurant on the "boardwalk" along the Homer Spit, it's more than just a hot dog stand. They grill your burgers LARGE and fresh on the grill - right before your eyes! They also serve a very generous sized chicken breast sandwich (chicken breast split in half and grilled fresh). If you order the cole slaw, it's great with the burgers.

The service was great - the staff was friendly, fast, and kept the kitchen very clean. You can see everything they do with their "open kitchen" layout. There's no mess on the floor, no food on the counters, no spills to wipe - it's a very very clean place to eat! Also, while you wait for the burgers to be prepared, there's a covered (and warm) outdoor seating area with some table games to keep you occupied.

Our next trip to Homer will definitely include a stop for some burgers and dogs!

If you need a break from fish, and want a good burger, this is the place. We enjoyed talking to the owner as much as the food. My friend was thrilled to find out from him that there was a Time Bandit warehouse store in town, where the Hildebrandt brothers mom is usually at every day. We only knew about their store on the Spit. I would have loved to try the pork he was cooking, but at that point in the trip, I was really ready for a good burger. Loved the sweet pototo puffs (?) too!

After 10 days of fins and shells, I had red meat lust. We asked our motel guy where to go for a great burger (and yes, there is a Mickey D's in town) and he sent us to Boss Hoggz at the beginning of the spit. This is primarily a take-out, but they have outside seating and a little room that is enclosed and has a heat lamp. It was blowing pretty good on the spit, so we sat in the little room that has 4 tables, and right under the heat lamp. OK, to the food! They have this cheese web thing on the burgers that is so totally, primally, and awesomely good! It hangs off the side of the burger. It is fried cheddar in all its goodness. This is the stuff your mama never made! The burgers come with slaw, onions,pickles, mayo and mustard. I had them hold the latter two. Ambience? Think road side stand. Burgers? Think good eats!

My husband and I are local residents and enjoy trying something new once in a while, this was a good choice! Great service and the food was perfect :) Only negatives that day~ out of sweet tea and the stool height didn't match the tables so it felt a bit awkward.

put this surprising spot at the top of your list! Delicious, fun, and inexpensive, Boss Hoggz Restaurant was a HUGE surprise... Friendly service, great location - very casual..and extra points for their AWESOME COLESLAW! (not that slippery, messy stuff you usually get at restaurants - this was crisp and tangy and delicious).
