My wife and I went to try the food, but found it closed. There was a for sale sign on the door. This was on June 12, 2014.

The first time we ate here we tried a little bit of everything---Ribs, pulled pork, sausage, potato salad, beans, coleslaw and Ginger beers. We got the plates so the portions were large---very generous for the price. I guess you could say we weren't expecting much,...More

There's no reason to eat at one of Raton's global fast-food franchises when you're passing through. Boomer's BBQ takes only a couple more minutes to serve you real food, to stay or to go, and costs just a couple more bucks - and it's GREAT...More

High class it's not, but a great down home place. They have plates for around $10 (with even cheaper lunch specials) that include two generous sides and a roll- pretty much all you can eat. And surprise, surprise- I found a turkey leg on the...More

Really solid BBQ, not far from the highway. I love the hacked horse trailer, built into what I guess was a gas station. My brisket was succulent and had a nice smoke ring. I liked the sauce--served on the side, and not sweet.

Get away from the chains and big box type restaurants, and take in the great wood burning smells and tastes of real southern barbeque! Generous portions make for good value, and the taste is fantastic! Highly recommended!

Fast and polite Service. You can order off of the menu board and they will answer all of your questions. They smoke everything right there so it's fresh and hot. The BBQ sauce is tangy and has just the right heat to it. Not over...More

We ate on Boomers patio tonight and had wonderful BBQ. I rarely eat restaurant potato salad, but Boomers was delish, after a slight sprinkle of salt. I had Brisket and my husband had the Turkey leg. Both were tender and flavorful! The sauce was different...not...More
