Went there for a birthday. Great food, great customer service and beautiful art! Only thing is that signage was slightly poor off street so be aware as you look for this restaurant. Otherwise, well worth going especially on a budget!

A group of us visited Boomerangs for dinner. I was excited as my boss said this place has great burgers! I will say the burger was o.k. But there was too many other distractors that dimmed my view and I will probably not return. From...More

They call it the "Bad Breath Burger": Black angus beef stuffed with bleu cheese crumbles, onions and roasted red peppers. Topped with grilled fresh mushrooms. Pretty darn good, though they could've smashed the patty flatter so that it covered the entire diameter of the bun(see...More

I've been at Boomerangs a couple times within the last year, but the most recent visit was with a couple of friends and my partner. We all unanimously agreed that the burgers were exceptional, and that the hosts were top-notch. My food came out in...More
