This restaurant was a huge disappointment. The chicken kabobs were dry, the chicken curry was also dry, and the ambiance was more dinner/cafe than restaurant. The reviews we read prior to going were all pretty good, but I suspect that they were written by the owners.

We loved our breakfast here. We could tell the food was cooked with love and care. I would highly recommend this place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The owners are hands-on and are very friendly. We had as much fun talking with them as we did enjoying our food.

We came for the bellydancing, and had a great dinner as well! One of us is watching our weight, and found a perfect dinner for weight-watching! The Pakistani pickle was fabulously flavored. The curry was wonderful, and the dessert tray was impressive.

I'm an admitted foodie and wanted to try the Indian cuisine. My Dal was okay - but very very spicy - I realize everyone has their own recipe - but I prefer to have some lentils to chew on instead of completely blended. My friend had the chicken kabobs - they were overcooked and dry. the Naan is $2 - 2.50 for only one piece.

They had homemade desserts and I tried the carrot cake - it was very good. Perhaps one needs to stick with the American cuisine at Boondockers.

Well-prepared American food, plus very interesting and tasty Pakistani dishes. The paratha and lamb vindaloo were delicious. And the service is quick and friendly.

This was my first visit to the restaurant and I took my niece to dinner. It was Christmas so there was a limited menu. I had the Prime Rib and she had the Turkey. Both were excellent. The food tastes like real home cooking. We both had dessert and it too was amazing.

There was a variety of people eating there for the holiday. It is casual dining and is kid friendly. I will definitely go back and my niece will too.

The day we were there just one man (the owner?) was working, taking orders, bussing tables, bringing orders, etc. He was a little overworked and as a result service was very slow. The food was fine, but I would only recommend going there if you are not in a hurry.

restaurant was completely empty for lunch service, ordered seafood platter and every single item was burned, dry, and nasty. vegetable's were boiled to mush, and all was unpalatable. I am confused as to why there were so many great reviews, as this was a really bad experience. My date wanted to do a substitution on her meal and was snubbed as to if that is possible.

This was our first visit to Boondockers Cafe. There were four of us dining. The Cafe offers classic American cuisine and a Pakistani menu. We ordered at least four of the appetizers for the variety. They were generous portions and delicious. One could easily make a meal out of just the appetizers. All four of us ordered of the Pakistani menu. Each main dish was plentiful and even more delicious than the appetizers. There is a lovely variety of homemade goodies for dessert, but we were all too full to enjoy any of them.....maybe next time, since we will definitely be visiting again soon!

We stopped in for a late lunch on the spur of the moment. We were impressed by the extensive menu, fantastic food (we had a steak and a lamb kabob), and excellent and personable service. The restaurant is a short hop off I-5 and is well worth the quick side trip. We will most definitely be back.

We enjoyed a great Mother's Day dinner at Boondockers. My daughters are vegetarians and appreciated the choices available, ending up choosing Indian dishes, my son had chicken, and my husband had fish n' chips; all very good.

My meal was absolutely delicious! I had seared halibut w/blackberry cilantro salsa from the special menu. It was the best halibut I've ever had, so fresh and cooked perfectly w/salsa as the perfect accompaniment. My meal included salad, veggies and orzo and was a good price at $21 especially considering the high quality.

The ambiance was relaxing; the staff attentive w/personal service by the owners. Would love to see the seared halibut as a regular menu item. Soooo good! Thanks for a terrific Mother's Day dinner!

Food might have been good but did not get that far. Went for mother's day, sat for 30 min before we able to have someone look our way and flagged them down just to getwwater then was told they weren't serving breakfast which was why we had gone because the kitchen was too busy. Even though the mother's day special said it was served until 3.

Expected it to be busy!. Seated on time. We had a table of 4 and we were seated right in the middle of 4 big tops that had 6 or more in the party. Our server spoke softly. Our food was good, but the runner was clearly distrot. Mimosas are good! I would go back, but not for a special occasion.
