Great Pies

I started going to BoBo's way back some 55 years ago. This time I only had pie and ice cream and it was as good as ever. The place is the same as it was back then but I think maybe a better staff. Our guy was the best, his parents on the restaurant and he is a very attentive... read more

Great burgers, chili dogs, fries, everything you would expect. Family loves to go. It is small so we try to go outside the tightest meal hour. You should go there. Apple pie is great too.. :-)

This place is exactly what you would expect- burgers, fries, shakes, etc. Staff is generally friendly and efficient. Prices are right. Give it a try.

This is a place to go if you want a good burger. The place is a bit small, so be careful if you go during the lunch or supper hours. However , the food is worth it. The pork tender is great as are the fries and onion rings. Also, if you walk out of there without having a piece... More

Bobo's is a tradition. Great burgers with daily specials. Love the fries. Apple pie is special. Drive in formal with some seating inside.

We saw this on Diners' drive ins and dives so we gave it a try. The service was great with carside service. However the burger was so-so. The pork tender is nothing more than a premade pattie. I love tenderloins and this one was weak. The onion rings looked like the grease needed changed and they were nearly burned. I... More

This historic drive-in makes burgers the way they're supposed to be made: grilled meat to perfection with condiments and a soft bun to soak up any grease! The onion rings are delicious as are their homemade pies and shakes. They accommodated our very large party with just one waitress (who got everything correct and was extremely pleasant in doing so),... More

Bobo's offers the best hamburgers, onion rings, apple pie, etc., etc., etc. Don't expect health food - you know what you are after when you go to Bobo's. It is the best hamburger joint in the midwest!

Had a great pork tender and onion rings. Enjoyed the tasty warm food on a cold blustery day! Will return on my next visit to Topeka.
