Iconic Topeka Drive-In Burger Joint

Four stars for history and pretty decent food! The burgers are okay, onion rings are very tasty, milk shakes are a treat!! The food is not as impressive as in the 70's when I was a teenager! Not much indoor seating, but grabbing food at the drive-in is helpful! A long-standing Topeka tradition!!

A Topeka tradition. If you are ever within 50 miles of this place you gotta come here. Diners, Drive-ins and Dives was here in 2007. Love the onion rings, shakes and don't forget their famous apple pie!! This place is a "Can't Miss!"

Checked the place out cause of triple D, of course. It's good but i think it's lost done of its touch since the owner change. Good food regardless.

Original style drive-in that is so much fun and has such good food! Seating is limited inside, but most people just like to drive up, park, and let a car hop take care of them. Burgers and fries are wonderful. They are also known for GREAT pie!

You can't think of Topeka without thinking about BoBo's. A true old school drive in. Burgers, chicken, fries, onion rings and their specialty, pies. Never had anything that wasn't fantastic. My family gets a bag of cheeseburgers to take back to KC with them when they visit. This place is an icon in Topeka, and you would be remiss to... More

We stopped here because of seeing it on Diner's Drive Inns and Dives and it was a little smaller than expected but there were no disappointments. It's like you went back 40 years or more. The food was all fresh and the burgers were out of fresh meat, homemade onion rings and root beer. Also got their famous homemade apple... More

I love the apple pie with the dream freeze ice cream! I love to start with desert. The onion rings are probably the best I have ever had here.

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... 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.
