BarFly's Review of Boss Hawgs
“Pearls are for necklaces, not districts—Take pride in the east side!” yells the Boss Hawg’s shirt sported by the bartender, and should the position become available, this homey, unpretentious joint would be a good appointment as Ambassador of Fuck Those Guys. Not that it’s looking to start a fight or anything, it’s just that the sweet drippings from 50-cent wing and rib night can be hard to get out of a $115 Armani T-shirt, and have you ever tried to drink an oolong martini out of a beer tanker? It’s goddamned dangerous, and you’re no fool.
But back to the ribs, which are fantastic and cheap on Wednesdays. Sure, everyone does 50 cent wings, but Portland needs more ribs, doesn’t it? They double down on the food here, tapas be hanged. Tuesdays are $5 all-you-can-eat tacos, Friday has its own knock-yourself-out buffet, and they’ll sell you a $6.95 filet mignon on Monday.
15 taps, with the expected domestics but a couple pleasant surprises. (If you can find a pint of Arrogant Bastard any further east, Jen Lane will buy you one.) Long, tall family-style tables and a tiered seating arrangement means everyone has a good view of the many TVs, and can both maneuver and be served with minimal spillage and ass-facing.
Sunday: SIN, mimosa brunch
Monday: $6.95 filet mignon
Tuesday: $5 all you can eat taco bar
Wednesday: 50 cent wings and ribs
Thursday: Karaoke; ladies drink cheap, nacho bar
Friday: Big-ass buffet $8.95
Sunday: Mimosa brunch, $3.50 tankers for SIN
Shuffleboard, Megatouch, 6x Lotto
Hours 7am-2:30am everyday

I Would Not Go Here The People all Bums Stinks Food Sucks Do Not Go Here It Is No good !!
I've been to Boss Hawg's a number of times, and with the exception of about twice, the food has always been very good. They know how to cook/season a steak without killing it, the portions are healthy. I haven't had the ribs yet, but plan trying them next time. I've only been there in the afternoons/early evenings, so I don't know about karaoke/evening activities yet, but I'll update this review/add to it, as I check those things out. The staff has always been polite and enthusiastic, and they've always treated me well, happy to make corrections if something isn't quite right with a meal, etc...The prices are very reasonable, for what you get. Very nice neighbourhood bar! ;oD
I went here with a buddy of mine to watch the game and have a few beers. Never been here before but it's near my house. Everything started fine but it didn't take long to figure out that every time I was asked for another beer and said yes, it wouldn't actually arrive at my table for another 10 timed (I actually timed this on the 3rd beer). I also tried to order food but it never arrived and apparently the staff had completely forgotten about it. Worst place ever, I will never go back there
food not good and numerous things i ordered that i really wanted to try they were out of. not the bar i would choose to go too but maybe you will have a better experience than i.
I love this bar, staff, drinks, and food. They have a great happy hour for food and drinks. I love the have hawg wings(fried pig shank, mmmmm). Great place for sports. It's the only place to watch football on Sundays. Rowdy, fun loving fans, buffets, and giveaways. Go SEAHAWKS!!!
MUST HAVE hawgarita is the knock-you-on-your-ass concoction you've been looking for. Killer staff, fun atmosphere!
Boss Hawgs is awesome. Affordable drinks, friendly staff, and a good bar to just chill and relax. Great food too! Every thursday I'm there, not only for the crowd and karaoke, but for the $1 doms and 75 cent wells for the ladies. Not to mention the "Micro Mondays", and "Tanker Tuesdays". Sadly they did away with the buy-1-get-1 "Well Wednesdays", but maybe someday it'll make a return. OH yeah, i can't forget the ridiculous birthday Hawgarita tradition, which is reason enough to come at least once a year. Long live the Hawg!
It isn't very "hip" by the young kids standards but it is a great place. They have great food, great drinks, love the hawgarita, and a great atmosphere. If you like karaoke they've got it and you can bet that they have good songs to sing. It's just an all around good place.
This bar is the neighborhood bar, it's a sports bar by day with like 6 HD TV's, but at night it fills up with all the young people. they have ladies night on Thursdays, karaoke, a DJ, video poker and 1 pool table along with darts and buck hunt. :) Servers are nice and drinks are strong they have their famous Hawgaritta, drinks are well priced, food is yummy, It's very smoky, not trendy at all and fully stocked bar. What else could you ask for?!
