Boondocker's Restaurant has a 3.5-star average from Yelpers:
- I had such a great experience at this little restaurant and will totally come back again for lunch or dinner. The owners are adorable and really put a lot of time and love into their restaurant. Highly recommend Boondockers to anyone who wants a good meal! – Kristin B.
- I had the Eggs Benedict with the eggs poached hard and the food came out perfectly. Their O'Brien potatoes were a great alternative to hashbrowns too. The owner was very personable and the service was perfect, our coffee cups never ran dry. I hear they make a mean Mimosa – Victoria L.
Boondockers Cafe was a Snohomish County favorite for decades, thanks to its classic burgers, fries, and milk shakes. So after buying the restaurant, the Bala family made sure to continue serving juicy burgers and old-fashioned ice-cream shakes while also giving the menu a new twist—a sidebar of carefully curated Indian and Pakistani fare.
Originally from India, the Bala family flavors favorite recipes with vibrant spices, yielding savory curries, kebabs, and samosas cooked in a clay oven. Sweet and savory breakfast fare can be enjoyed with mimosas until 2 p.m., when the champagne flutes turn back into plastic sippy cups till the next morning.
