Great food, huge portions. The only drawbacks are location (not all that easy to find) and hours (closes after lunch). It would be great to be able to take the family there for dinner. The bbq meat is amazing, and so are the cheesy potatoes....More

Limited hours are the ONLY reason I'm not rating a 5. The brisket and pulled pork are my favorite meats and my favorite side is the cheesy potatoes.

Lonnie is a great cook and the food is outstanding. A Little Cup of Heaven is my favorite! Make this a must stop on your way through Topeka, KS

Tried the "cup of heaven" and it did not disappoint. Cheesy potatoes, beans and three meats in a cup. Lonnie's is only open 11-1 Monday thru Friday then Friday evening 530-7:30. Closed Sat and Sun. Well worth the wait at lunch!
