Wonderful food that reminds you of the old days,if you're as old as I am. If you're not as old as me, when you are, this will be the dive by which you will judge all other dives.

Small hometown drive in. Car hop or small inside eating area. Ordered hamburger and onion rings, home made root beer and a slice of their famous apple pie. It was all good. A must stop in Topeka.

Old 50s style diner, great burgers. Not a lot else to say. Just flat out amazing burgers. Not fancy foo foo stuff, just plain ol amazing cheeseburgers.

This was a nice little drive-in. The waitress, who I believe was also the owner, made a great effort to get my order right. My wife thought the apple pie was very good. We were drawn to this location because of diners, drive-ins, and dives.

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
