August 2, 2012Bobo’s Drive-In Topeka, Kansas – A Retrotastic Fun Eating Experience!
Mike and I recently went on a mini road trip and we thought we’d hit up some fun eating joints along the way. We had seen Bobo’s Drive In featured in an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and thought it looked super cool so we wanted to check it out since this was our first time heading through Kansas. We got there late on a Tuesday night, not realizing that 8 pm was the closing time. So, we had to go back the next day because we did not want to miss out on trying out Bobo’s!
Bobo’s has been in business since 1948, but they have been operating out of this location since 1953 – so the place definitely has that retro feel to it. You can either eat in your car where the carhops will come take your order (no intercom here!) or eat inside the diner area. We decided to eat inside.
It is super small inside, there are maybe 12 barstools if you want to sit at the counter, or 5 booths and maybe 1 or 2 tables. Luckily, it was not busy when we went so we just got a booth.
Here I am patiently waiting for our order!
We ordered different things and then split everything up. We tried the Fish Treat and the Cheeseburger and the Onion Rings. We also had the Homemade Root Beer. Everything was super good just like you’d think a diner should be, and our waitress was the sweetest gal too!
If you ever have a chance to visit Bobo’s Drive-In I highly recommend it!
Next Thursday – sights from our road trip!
