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.

Found this place on trip advisor while visiting a museum in Topeka. From the outside I'd say they needA coat of paint. Although small on the inside, or cozy at best seeing the horseshoes shaped counter and stools along with the old Timey booths...The only thing missing was a jukebox. The only waitress working was prompt and friendly and extremely... More

If you are in Topeka and want to go back to Happy Days stop and eat BOBO's burgers, they are very good. From the outside it doesn't look like much but the food is great..I guess you don't judge a book by its cover nor a resturant
