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

My family and I ate here after a local recommended it. It was awesome! We each tried a different sandwich, and each one was tasty, huge, and well cooked. The staff was very friendly and even delivered to our table. It appears to be an old DQ building, but was clean and well maintained. Cheese fries were shared by all... More

Met some friends there for Lunch and what not sure what to expect. All 4 of us were more than just pleasantly surprised by how good the food and the cleanness of the restaurant. Staff was extremely polite and friendly. I had the Bacon Cheese Burger and it fanatics. A pleasant surprise in Emporia Kansas.

Do Bs is wonderful. They try to source as many food items locally as they can. Great sandwiches. People rave about the Po'Boys, but I tend to steer away from the fried foods, myself. The California Chicken Burger is outstanding, as is the house-made black bean burger.

You really can't go wrong with anything here. But good Po Boys are hard to find. And theirs are very tasty.
