“Great Burgers!”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Boo Dawg's is inside a steel building -- a small warehouse or a large workshop, for example. The decor is mixed, with some car inspired material, and large butcher-block tables. It's spacious, and the high ceiling lends to the airy atmosphere. You order cafeteria style -- you place your order at the register, collect a vibrating radio pager, and sit to wait.

I arrived around 330 on a Wednesday and there was no line. I ordered a burger combo, and it came up in about 10 minutes. It was a bit of a wait, but I was in no rush.

The burger was absolutely delicious. The cashier said that the burgers are hand-formed daily from pulled pork. All of the ingredients were fresh and absolutely delicious. I'd go back again and again if I lived in the area. All I could ask for is a bar or rail to sit at -- I went solo and ended up occupying a 6-top table near the window, which was a bit awkward.

“A great place to take the family.”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Yesterday was Father's Day and our second visit to Boo Dawg's in Boerne. It is a fun place to take the family. The food has been good each time we have eaten there. Our grandson especially loves the milkshakes. Service was a little slow due to the size crowd but we did not mind the wait because it gave us quality time to visit. If you want fast food go somewhere else.

“Very good burgers”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Very good burgers. Very friendly service. Not sure how organized they are as they called us twice for our milkshakes. Although they offered us the duplicate for free, we declined. They are decent shakes but the days of wanting more than one are behind us.
