Grovers is closed and torn down. They are building a Super Sonic. It was great barbeque with great family meals. We miss them.

We enjoy the family dinner with ribs, chicken, sliced meat and sides. Great fries and baked beans. Eat in or drive thru. My mouth is watering right now.

Grover's is like a hidden gem in Topeka. They have some of the best ribs and pulled pork that you will find - plus great sides and cold refreshments!

I've grown up around Topeka and BBQ isn't just a meal to me. It's a lifestyle. Back East, they like vinegar. In Texas, they like mesquite. In Kansas City, we like it sweet. It should be obvious to anyone which one is best (go Chiefs)....More
