So this area is known for barbecue but we arrived too late to be able to go to one of the barbecue houses. And that turned out to work really well for us! We read about it on trip advisor and decided to give it...More

Never had such great meat, the ribeye and hash browns w/ gravy were to die for. If stopping in Topeka, it's a must visit! Service was wonderful and story behind the place was incredible. Will definitely be back!!

I have eaten at this restaurant since the late 1970's. It is never a disappointment. If you are looking for a great steak, homemade fries and out of the world gravy (plus other menu items), this is your place. It is truly a Topeka, Kansas...More
