Bobo's Drive-In

Went here with a group and ate inside. Space is limited. I ordered a chocolate shake, double steakburger and fries. Food was excellent. I'd compare the food to a better version of Freddy's or Steak and Shake. Waitress was excellent. Food was excellent and I left there for around $10.

I wasn't really impressed. Our waitress was amazing, great personality! My husband had the buffalo chicken wrap which I had a bite and it was great! I had the club and in my opinion lacked any form of taste and was disappointing. My biggest issue was one of the waitresses continuously played with her pony tail. Combing thru it with her fingers, then twisting etc etc. This literally continued from the moment we walked thru the door until we left. We brought it to our waitresses attention and was assured it would be passed on to the manager. I hope so because it was disturbing that she would touch plates and glasses after doing so! Most likely this was not only our first time but our last time at this establishment!Hello, thank you for sharing, we are sorry we let you down. Touching your hair in a food service establishment is wrong, and we are truly sorry. We review all feedback in an effort to refocus and improve. Please try us again, our Sunday Brunch Buffet is really tasty, and a great price for the entire family!

This is our go to place whenever we are in Topeka. We met with friends for dinner during our most recent visit. You simply can't go wrong with their Burnt Ends ( If you don't know what those are...believe me...try them and you will fall in love!!). My husband votes for their chicken wings. Both of us love their Chicken Fried Steak but if you don't have a BIG appetite....get an extra plate, an extra order of mashed potatoes and gravy and share it !!!! They also have some great award winning craft beers, if you are a beer lover.

The Weather Room at Cyrus Hotel

Reviewed By RonR696

This is a very nice restaurant -- diverse menu for breakfast (really reasonable prices) and dinner. I tried the pea soup -- my server said it was different -- and he was right -- but it was good. I opted for a burger to go with it and it was excellent. Large serving of fries came with the burger, which I was not expecting. There is ample hightop, bar, and dining room seating; the latter offers a more quiet experience.

Simply one of the best cheeseburgers you are going to eat. Order the 1/2 pound cheeseburger with everything and you will not regret it. Cheese balls and onion rings do not disappoint either.I am glad this is not near me as I would gain 20lbs.

Enjoyed a nice meal on an overnight in Topeka. Close to Homewood Suites. Busy when we arrived but seated immediately. The warm rolls were amazing along with a great margarita! I ordered the Ft Worth ribeye with a baked potato. Perfectly cooked. Very enjoyable. Ayanna was terrific and took really good care of us. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

We stopped here while driving through town. We all loved our burgers. I was disappointed in the truffle fries and would try something different next time, but my Kobe burger was amazing. I especially liked the chipotle ketchup. Great local place with friendly staff.

I totally recommend this place, even if you don't drink. The tomato bisque soup, the grilled cheese sandwich, and the chips were absolutely delicious! The wait was about 10 minutes, but they have limited seating, so it was expected and the food was so worth the wait.

Lonnie Q's BBQ

Reviewed By DollyLK

I went to Lonnie’s today and had the #1 - brisket & pulled pork with cheesy potatoes & Cole slaw. The beef brisket was perfectly executed- smoky and super tender. The pork was smoky, tender and delicious. There are 3 different sauces. Cheesy potatoes are unique and pair well with the BBQ. The Cole slaw is on the sweet side. For the #1 the cost is $12.50 and is enough for two meals as Lon is very generous with his servings. There is typically a wait - up to 30 minutes standing in line. I do recommend going as early as possible.

We love the atmosphere of this place. We mostly love the food. On this night, we had cauliflower fritters, salmon, and beef ribs. All of our entrees were delicious, well-prepared, and delivered in a timely manner. The chickpea minestrone soup was a different story. Not only was it a tiny portion, but it was watery and bland. The restaurant prides itself on wine and food pairings, but the wine while good was expensive and tardily delivered. We were well into our food courses before our wine arrived. We even had to ask our server for it. Service overall was distracted. A fine dining experience involves more than good food; service is an intricate part of it.
