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!

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
