Came here while at a conference. The food was good but we had a large group (18) and we were on a time crunch and it took a while for the food. But our server, Garrett, did an awesome job with us, it wasn't his fault for it taking so long. He tried to accommodate us to the best he... More

I've been eating at Boss Hawg's for many years and have always enjoyed really good BBQ dinners, although I'd not been there in the past six months. This time, not so good. Our meats were baby back ribs, spare ribs and brisket. Both types of ribs were dry and without much flavor, as though they had been cooked another day... More

I don't understand what all the raves are about. There are several places in Topeka with better barbecue. It isn't bad, but it is definitely not the best. I did like the hot wings. Pasta salad was almost all broccoli, I mean big chunks of broccoli. In pasta salad? Burnt ends o.k. Have been here several times, always by someone... More

This was the first time to visit Boss Hawgs. Now keep in mind, that when it comes to bbq, I'm picky. I don't know if it was just an off day for them, but I thought their roast beef was dry. I kept putting bbq sauce on trying to get some kind of moisture. The flavor was fine, the meat... More

This used to be such a good place but I'm wondering if business has fallen off. There were only two tables of people in the dining area on Saturday at noon. Usually the food comes out within 10 minutes of ordering. This trip it took forever to place our order and took 20 minutes to get some corn bread. We... More

It always smells good even before you walk in the door and smell the smoked meat cooking. The cornbread with honey butter always adds to the meal. The ribs are really good and meaty, the sandwiches never disappoint. baked beans are good, too. It's a fun place to eat at whether just as a couple or with a lot of... More

We had a fantastic bbq dinner here. You get corn bread and butter after you order. Very good. I got to try ribs, nice meaty and little fat, the pulled pork and I added brisket was great, burnt ends had just a little fat on them but tender and not over cooked. They had big beers on special. Good aray... More

Kansas City is proud of its legendary barbecue, and rightly so. It would be reasonable to think that perfectly smoked meats and amazing sauces could be found an hour to the west of KC, but it's amazing how quickly the options fade once you leave the greater Kansas City metro area. If you're craving BBQ and/or want to support a... More

Not sure what has happened now that new ownership has taken charge. The servers are less than attentive, the food is just okay, and the Friday night crowd has all but gone away. At one time, this was our normal Friday night spot to get half-price apps, sing karaoke, and enjoy a safe/relaxed environment with tables and tables full of... More

The food was good but is not exactly the same as before recent changes. The staff was friendly and the service was great! A good place to take family and friends in Topeka.
