Bobo's Drive-In

Reviewed By DSchuler

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.

Hanover Pancake House

Reviewed By TravelNinjas4

We stopped here thinking it looked like a good place for breakfast. I ordered several items including the homemade cinnamon roll, pancakes and biscuits and gravy. The cinnamon roll was dry and not what I expected for homemade. The pancakes were probably the best thing we had. The biscuits and gravy tasted like packaged gravy. The service was slow and not very personable. It took about 45 minutes for our food to arrive. We had a hair on the eggs and were told it was an “egg hair” not sure what that is but it wasn’t what we had:). All and all it was a place to eat!!

Banjo's Cafe

My husband and son ate burgers and fries and they ate every bit of it! I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich and Curly Q's. The steak was not hand breaded and was pretty greasy, which was disappointing. The Curly Q's were great. The restaurant and restrooms we're clean and the staff was friendly. If you're headed to the Combat Museum, KS National Guard Museum or Forbes Field you should give this place a try.

Cook's American Grill

Reviewed By Jeff Y

We eat pretty healthy at home, but when we're out of town, we like to indulge and so we wanted to get some country cooking while visiting Topeka. Cook's looked perfect. I had the chicken fried steak with beans and mashed potatoes and can heartily recommend it. We also tried onion rings which were great and my daughter got a kid meal which was nothing special, but came in a really fun cardboard car. Nice!We also tried raisin pie, because, why not? I liked it, but they said they weren't selling too much of it, so don't know if it will be there much longer. Overall, fun and relatively inexpensive meal. Also, unlike some country restaurants, the portions were a good size, not too huge, but big enough to fill you up. Good and fast and friendly service also.
