My family first started going to Boll Weevil maybe 45 years ago. Today they are still nailing it with the best burgers in town. This particular trip was exceptionally good!

We generally eat here once a month. Mondays are underrated. Not crowded and quieter than other nights. Quick service. We get a buffalo burger and a BBQ bacon cheese burger. Those loaded potatoe skins are to die for.

Good Tasting Burger for a good price, comes with all the extras on the table so you can add as much as you like to your 1/2 burger

Somehow on this visit nobody in the group ordered a burger, and our entrées came with a side salad. The salads were great!

Boll Weevil offers good casual dining. They are know for their steer burgers, big, messy and tasty. If you are looking for a good place to relax with a burger and a beer, Boll Weevil is the place. Service is fast and the servers are friendly. The menu is not catering to the health conscious but it all tastes good!

The food has improved remarkably over the years---it's a great place for families of all sizes and ages and is good if you don't want to change clothes after work too !

Went there for their all you can eat fish fry. The coupon for discount made it tolerable. In my opinion the frying was over done, but then I am not a big fan of hard crispy fried foods. I'm more of the Golden brown fry. Every thing else was very good. Service was good.

We hadn't been in this restaurant in over a year. Before it was so shabby. The tables chipped, the booths needed recovering. We were surprised that it looked so much better. We had a coupon that's why we decided to go. The food was good. The menu had some changes, but I asked for a burger that I had before... More
