Great food and service! Don't overlook this gem!

We went to Cook's for a late lunch between baseball games. The special was the chicken cordon bleu sandwich. The sandwich was delicious with a lightly breaded chicken breast piled with ham and a slice of cheese on a toasted bun. I also had the crinkle cut fries that were hot and fried... read more

Usually come here for lunch. They make a wonderful chicken strip salad. The staff is always friendly and the service is pretty quick even when it's a busy lunch day. Moe of a casual place, lots of regulars. Good place to meet up with friends for a good lunch and still be able to visit. Menu has a good selection... More

Staff were friendly, helpful, and made best value suggestions. Food was amazing! I dropped my phone out of my bag and didn't notice until after I left. Called back and the staff found it right away!

I made my first visit to Cook's with my husband. This place has a very comfortable atmosphere. It's also fairly quite. The staff was super friendly and welcoming. We ate during supper hours and there were only three occupied tables. It does not seem to be a busy restaurant. The prices are very reasonable. We had bacon cheeseburgers, fried pickles,... More

When we think breakfast in Topeka, Cooks American Grill is near the top of the list. This small restaurant on Gage is consistently good and is served by a friendly staff. The restaurant is clean (a must). Daily specials also are available for all three meals. The only issue so far is the small parking lot is difficult it maneuver... More

This is a great little hole in the wall! Have had breakfast here on several occasions and will go there over the chains on Wanamaker any day! Great food and prices!

We stopped by here from seeing the reviews on TA and found it to be wonderful food. Nice little diner with home cooked food. Had the Reuben and onion rings. My fiancé had the double cheese burger and fries and said it was really good. Reasonable priced too.
