Boss Hogg’s – Pagosa Springs

Boss Hogg’s

As I made my way to Pagosa Springs I saw a sign I knew I couldn’t resist. As a man who admittedly is swayed by a restaurant with a cool a name, a sign for Boss Hogg’s looked just like a lighthouse to this weary adventurer.

Wood paneling on the walls, wood booths, chairs and tables are all part of the design at Boss Hogg's

The restaurant looked rustic from the outside and the interior was classic western steakhouse. Wood tables, wood paneling, animal prints and basically the works. It is one of those places that feels comfortable as soon as you walk in. Boss Hogg’s must have recognized me as the celebrity blogger I am because they put me in a “private” alcove. Either that or they knew I hadn’t showered yet that day!

The Food

But enough with the décor, it is time for the important part…the food! After a day of travel I was ready for some good food and I ordered the prime rib special which came with two sides. Don’t let anyone say I’m not healthy some of the time, I went with the salad and the green beans!

Salad Bar

The salad was in the form of a salad bar. The options hit all the basic veggies and even offered up some pasta salads. The lettuce and other veggies all were very fresh and crisp and it was a very refreshing salad.

Prime Rib and Beans

Next came the main attraction, the Prime Rib. The meat was cooked well. The cut was a little light on fat for flavor but that just means more protein! The rib was seasoned well and was heavier on the salt and smoked flavors in the mouth. The au jus that came with the prime rib had a rich beef flavor to it and was good. The horseradish was also good with a hint of spice. I could have gone with a bit more spice personally but I feel like if it isn’t clearing the sinus it isn’t spicy enough with the horseradish!

Special shout out to the country green beans. They were cooked in both bacon and onions and were really delicious. I love beans that are cooked in this way and the Boss Hogg’s beans gave a great blend between the onion and bacon flavors combining with the beans.

Overall, a really good meal for a good price and was perfect after a long day of travel and adventure. If you find yourself in Pagosa Springs, give Boss Hogg’s a shot!

Finding Boss Hogg’s

Boss Hogg’s is located at 157 Navajo Trail Drive in Pagosa Springs. You can see it from 160 as you drive through the west side of town and it is located on a kind of frontage road with some other shops. There is parking in front of the restaurant. I only saw indoor seating at this establishment.

I have added this restaurant and all of the restaurants I have been to on my interactive map that you can find here. If you have a suggestion for a restaurant or any comments feel free to email me at or you can follow me on any of the below social media platforms. Bon Appetit!
