Bobo's is an out of the way treasure that is a flash back to the 50's and 60's. The food is good and in appropriate proportions. A little hectic especially at the rush times but still, the staff is friendly and efficient. Oh Yes... They have by far and wide the best dang onion rings in the entire state! Golden... More

I live close by so I've given Bobo's several tries over the past year and a half and have come to the conclusion that it's just not that good. Frankly, the burgers are bland and really nothing special about the fries and onion rings. Service has ranged from mildly friendly to indifferent. I realize this place is a Topeka institution...

I have lived in Topeka nearly all my life but did not eat at Bobo's until my fiftieth birthday. My family and I ordered typical fast food (hamburger, fries, etc.). The food was good, but it didn't taste any better or worse than many other burgers and fries. I want to go again and try the menu item that made... More

I visited Bobos and was delighted by their home made corn bread the apple pie the Steak Sandwich was really great. The atmosphere at the place makes you believe you are back in the 50s but when you tried their food it will take you to Grandmas kitchen. Went there for 3 days in a row in order to taste... More

This place was on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives the food is good I really wish they would figure something out with the parking lot I didn't see anything special about it other than it's a historical landmark for Topeka

I got the Spanish burger (recommended) which had a special sauce on it. I also got onion rings and a vanilla shake. If I had to rank them I'd say: Shake = A Spanish Burger = B+ Onion rings = B-

Really enjoyed our visit to Bobo's. Fresh hamburgers, 100 times better than chain burgers for sure. Polite and courteous curbside service. I really enjoyed the Spanish burger, while the rest of our party had made-to-order burgers. Been a Topeka institution for 70 years and hope it's here for another 70. Bravo.

Wife and I stopped for lunch while traveling around Kansas. So glad we did, as we both agreed the onion rings may be best we ever had. They are the thinly cut and not overly breaded kind that leave the grease spots at bottom of basket. The cheeseburgers are awesome too. Nothing fancy...just the normal fixings...but the meat flavor off... More
