Like to try out DDD featured eating experiences looking for the memorable little gems. This one was disappointing. To begin with, there were lots of aggressive flies! The burger was average and the onion rings were more like onion strings. The inside eating area was small and unkept. The bathrooms were.downstairs via a STEEP staircase. The apple pie was very...

The burgers and fries are great but the standout have got to be the onion rings! Given how good the rest of the food was, if I could have, I would've tried one of everything! Next time we're in Topeka we'll make at least one stop at Bobo's.

Featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives. Pretty good hamburgers, great onion rings and the best milkshakes!!! It was fun to see Guy Fieris autograph on one of their lights there. Would definitely go back again.

We originally wanted to go because we saw it on the TV show and I'm glad we did. The food is good but the place is really small. Don't go if you're in a hurry and make sure you have time to eat

This was a real old fashioned, car service place. It doesn't look like much from the outside (it actually looks like it was last improved in the 50s), but that doesn't matter when it comes to the food. They have a small dining room but the reason you go here is the car service. We enjoyed the steakburger, cheeseburger, and... More

A true old-fashioned drive-in, locally owned Bobo's is known for their onion rings and homemade apple pie among other favorite items. This is the one place friends MUST eat when they come home for a visit.

When I was a kid in the 50's going to Bobo's Drive -In in Topeka was a real treat! I can still remember my #1 Bobo's favorite was the Foot Long Chili Dog. If your in the area, I highly recommend it.

This place was featured on Diner's, Drive Ins, and Dives. I think it fits all categories. We have eaten there a few times when traveling through the Topeka area. You can drive in and someone will come to your car to take your order, they have a small dine in area, and it is truly a dive with great hamburgers.... More
