“Good fried chicken in a relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Stopped after a day of bargain hunting. Both of us ordered fried chicken. Had fried mushrooms as appetizer. They were good and plentiful helping. House salad was average. My mashed potatoes were average. The fried chicken was very good. The pieces were good size. The meat was juicy.

“Not very good this time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

The steak was tough and didn't have much flavor. I've eaten there before, and it was much better then. The service is still good and the atmosphere is still good. Maybe I just got a bad steak.

“Great Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Puffy's is know for their steak. The prices are reasonable, and it is worth the drive from Topeka to eat at Puffy's. Their salads come straight out of a bag, but then I don't go their for their salad. I do wish that Puffy would invest a little time and imagination and come up with a good steak topped salad.

“Overrated - Not worth a drive from Topeka”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

I was staying in Topeka on business and several local colleagues suggested Puffy's for a great steak. One person even described Puffy's as having the "best steak in Kansas". So perhaps my expectations were too high going in. Puffy's is on Main St in the very small town of Maple Hill west of Topeka a few minutes off I-70. I went with three co-workers and we all got the filet mignon. All three of us were very disappointed. The steaks had an excessive amount of grizzle, especially for a filet mignon. The salads were very basic (iceburg lettuce) and the bread was nothing special. We did order an appetizer of onion rings and they were certainly the high point of the meal. However, even the exceptional onion rings couldn't overcome our disappointment with the steaks.
