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

If you are passing by this stop is worth the effort. This DDD location is what the show is make of. Great food in a not so attractive place. Don't judge a book by its cover. The onion rings are what great onion ring makers dream to accomplish.

This is a tradition in Topeka, but I think it's changed hand enough that that's about all it is. I've been several times and was not overly excited by the food or the service. I do like burgers- maybe I just hit bad days- but I didn't see what all the hoopla was about!

We stopped because this is a DDD location. If certainly isn't fancy but the burgers were good. The onion rings had a nice light batter and the fries were tasty. Quick service was a plus. As a previous reviewer noted it reminded us of the 60's.

We stopped here because of previous reviews and for it being on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. The hamburgers were delicious, nice and crisp on the edges. The oinions rings were some of the best we've had. The batter coating was just the right amount and fried to perfection! My husband had the homemade root beer and felt it was... More

Okay- I went to college in Topeka and never knew this place existed. A drive in that has been around since 1948 and featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The burgers were good. You are going for the "atmosphere" and the frozen silk dessert- good stuff!
