We have eaten here before they moved to this location. The food has changed a bit, preferred before but still delicious. Much better atmosphere & seating now. Fun map on the wall to place where you are from.

Probably one of the smallest menus I've ever seen. That is not a problem, because flavors for their entrees were excellent. I'm a sucker for black beans, and I always know I can get them at South American places. Apparently, they recently moved to this...More

There wasn't a wide range of food choices, but what they had was good. The owners were most courteous. My friend and I were there on a weeknight evening and it wasn't crowded.

Very disappointed in this place, the portions were very small and the price was not worth it. The sandwich had a small amount of items and the bun was cold, more bread than anything else. Party of 4 and no one wishes to return.

While the ambiance is that of a fair food court, the food was delicious and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and they bring your food on a paper plate. Tables/chair are actually pic nic tables and benches. Decor non existent.

From reading the senior reviews ( most reviewers are not) we had set our expectations pretty high. There has only been a rare situation when a highly TA rated place comes up short. This was one of those. They were nice enough to hold a...More

Hello, We apologize you didn't have a great experience at The Boss. I wish you had brought up to our attention that you thought the meat was tough. Our skewers are made with the best quality meat (they weight around 4.23 ounces) . We would've...More
