Best shakes around!

We were in the Emporia area for a baseball tournament and found this place on a Friday afternoon. The food was excellent...great burgers, wings, and Philly. Took a little bit of time to get the food but they were pretty busy. The shakes were some of the best we've ever had. The only downside... read more

We ate lunch in Do-B's while traveling on I-35. The service is very friendly and the food is outstanding. In our group we tried the catfish Po-boy, the loosie burger, the Jayhawk burger, cheeseburger, fish sticks and crispy chicken Po-boy. The onion rings were lightly breaded and crispy. Everything was delicious! We especially enjoyed the delicious crusty and soft bread... More

Old school burgers and cheesesteak. Very good. Easy to get to off bypass. We love to eat at places we can't at home and this fits the bill.

We went off the beaten path to find this place and you should too. Family run and friendly only begins to describe how NICE these folks are. The cooking time is long but the wait is worth it. Get off I-35 for this gem.

I've eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Do-Bs and have never been disappointed or left hungry. I've seen reviews less than complimentary on the building and the wait time. To address the building: we're in Emporia, Kansas, people! It's a fun, quirky place, to match the unique menu. Enough said! Wait time? It's not fast food. Each item is prepared... More

Old school joint. Very friendly staff, clean & lots to choose from. Had the Lua burger (hawian)...big! Hubs had Spartan Phili cheese steak...had a great kick and not a crumb left. We shared onion rings. Children had "mini" burgers...not small- one with fries, other with applesauce & my picky eaters loved. Took peanutbutter/chocolate shake & strawberry/pineapple shake to share with... More

One of few places in Kansas I've found that makes a Philly like they are made in Philly...fresh, good meats, everything was good, and yes, they brought it out...limited hours tho; would go there more often but open on a strange schedule
