Boondocks is an amazingly great place to eat! The older man who cooks is an awesome cook. Everything tastes amazing! A little spendy, but for the food we get we cannot complain.

The food and service were very good. I especially liked the green chili soup and the onion rings. You don't find good beer battered onion rings anymore. Tamales were very good as well. If I'm ever back that way, I would go again!!
