First time stopping at The Boss on way through Ellensburg. Food was fresh and delicious. The only complaint I have is that they have big portions. The food was so good I ate more than I planned to. Try the Malagueta sauce, it adds a...More

The beef main dish was very tender and flavorful over the rice. The salad was very heavy pesto or some type of seasoning. I enjoyed the lunch. Service was fast and so was the food.

Very reasonably priced food, served with a smile! The beef stew and the 'fancy chicken appetizers' in the shape of a teardrop are unforgettable. Family friendly, and the crowd is a nice mix of families, folks eating on the run, and happy regulars.

The food is very authentic. I felt like I was eating in Southern Brasil. The staff are typically friendly Brasileiros. While the selection of ingredients in Ellensburg is understandably limited, this restaurant has done a great job providing a representative taste of Brazilian cuisine. The...More

The food tasted excellent. I will go there again however, I will ask for my sandwich to look more like the picture they have on the wall....larger chunks of beef or chicken. Both sandwiches we purchased had more bun than meat.
