“Casual eating with friendly service - and a good place for special events”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Boss Hogg's full parking lot from opening to close attests to the fact that this restaurant has a strong following among both locals and visitors. People know that they can get a good meal at a reasonable price here -- good value for money. The service is very good, and the fact that so many of the servers have been there for many years is a tribute to the management. Owners Mandy and her father Steve keep their eye on every detail and are visible in the restaurant all the time. Bartender Joanie -- known for her laugh, her delicious $2 margaritas and her amazing memory for her customers' drink and food preferences -- is a treasure. Her daughter Jeanette has her mother's same cheerful demeanor and good memory for what her customers like.

Among our favorites for lunch are the potato skins (half order is enough for lunch), salad bar with or without soup of the day, crab cakes, and chicken quesadillas (spicy or not). Our dinner favorites are prime rib, BBQ ribs and fried catfish. There also are vegetarian and gluten-free options. At dinner you get delicious wheat bread with whipped honey butter. Their cole slaw is excellent -- I often ask for an extra order to take home. The best table, especially in winter, is in front of the fireplace (seats eight).

A real plus here is the side room that gives you some privacy for special events like Christmas or birthday parties, ladies bridge luncheons, etc. If you have a large group, Mandy will work with you to make your event a success within your budget -- e.g., making lunch portion sizes of entrees normally available only on the dinner menu. The tables can be set up as you wish -- smaller tables, one long table or something in between.

“Good Enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

When we were there it was tough to find a restaurant that was open that wasn't Mexican food. The two places, Marconis(Italian) and Boss Hoggs were about the only choices and both restaurants had a wait every night we were there. We waited about 30 minutes(thurs night), food was good/average same with salad bar.

“Fair...nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We waited for 40 minutes to get to a table. Table was close to the entry and breezy every time the doors were opened. The food was okay but nothing to get excited over. We had eaten here once b4 and had really enjoyed it. ??

“Had a great time at Boss Hogg's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We were in Pagosa Springs for the first time this past August. We asked around to find a place to eat and many people recommended Boss Hogg's. We're very glad we took their advice! The food was excellent and it's a fun place to be.

“Good Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Went in based on the number of local cars in the parking lot. Sunday early afternoon and the placed is packed. I was able to sit in the bar and order. The salad bar looked amazing but I decided not to go crazy and eat everything. The prime rib was very good. Service was good, beer was cold.
