Great place to eat!

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... read 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.

A good place for basic menu items and good prices. This is not an upscale burger joint, but there definately is a place for this type of restaurant in the market. We just went there for the first time in December 2013 and got just what we expected. We ordered the patty melt (very good) and meatloaf (good, but basic).... More

We had heard this was a great place for breakfast. First is was very cold in the dining area. The menu is on the wall which is OK and they really had a great selection. Very good prices as well. You have to go up to the counter to order and then go get your own silver and syrup etc.... More

After hearing how great the food was, I finally stopped in. We were there after the lunch crowd on a Saturday afternoon so it was not really busy. It is a small little place tucked along the busy Gage Blvd. I finally settled on trying just a burger and fries. All I can say is...yummy!! It was an actual real... More

We had seen so many commercials on the local TV stations advertising Cook's American Grill and wanted to try it out. The food and portions looked amazing on TV.....However.....not so much in person. My wife ordered onion rings at $2.49 and got a total of 5 onion rings, one about as big around as a baseball and the other four... More

For the past two years, an executive committee that I serve on meets for breakfast monthly and we were eating at a downtown mainstay because of proximity to our offices. On my recommendation, as the result of a very good breakfast at Cooks, we now are meeting here monthly. I've had everything from the sausage burrito special of the morning... More

You have to love this kind of place. Small and friendly. The menu and furniture hasn't changed in a loooong time but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Good for a quick meal at just about any time. Trivia cards at the tables to keep you entertained during the wait. Always a good idea.
