TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A famous Topeka eatery is celebrating a big birthday Tuesday!

Bobo's Drive-In is celebrating 65 years in business.

The classic drive-in has been in Topeka since 1948 and has been featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network.

Owner Richard Marsh says he enjoys hearing everyone's memories about the restaurant.

"It's fun to sit at the counter and listen to everyone come in and talk about how it was their first job, they used to carhop here, their mom used to work here, or they've been coming here ever since they were babies, or grandma brought them here, mom brought them here. Everybody has a story about Bobo's," said Marsh.

The drive-in was named one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas Cuisine by Kansas Sampler Foundation.
