Stopped here while on business, small place, lots of fun choices! Great customer service. Had to wait about 20 min for my cheeseburger and fries. It was only okay, but they had many more fun things to choose from.

Ate lunch here today. Cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. Large burger with a thick patty, shredded lettuce, pickle, mustard, mayo, ketchup. Burger was juicy as flavorful. Sweet potato fries were crisp and delicious. Can't remember the total $$ but it was very reasonable for the amount of food. Self service drinks with free refills. Clean interior. Friendly servers.

As you enter the small parking lot on the corner of 12th Ave and East Street, just a hop, skip, and a jump from the campus, you will find the remodeled Dairy Queen, that now houses a remarkable, mouthwatering, little burger joint. Do-B’s came on the scene about six years ago. Once you step out of your vehicle, sometimes even... More

A little too expensive for a ham and cheese sandwich. Very small but very friendly owner and staff. It is locally owned so i definitely could feel that home town feeling from customers and staff. Not against returning, and oh yes, the bathrooms are outside of the building.

Every time I visit Emporia, I have lunch at Do-B's. The staff is friendly and always makes me feel welcome. The food is always fresh and hot. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. My favorite is the standard single cheeseburger with fries, but the steak sandwiches and salad are equally poplular

We moved to Emporia about 3 months ago and had never eaten at Do-B's. Several people recommended it to us, so we gave it a try. One time eating there was all it took. We are hooked! We now eat there once a week on our date night. That's how good it is! While the wait time can be a... More

The counter staff works hard to make you welcome.We were greeted by a friendly voice as soon as we walked in. The burgers are freshly cooked and juicy and the fries (regular and sweet potato) are crisp and not greasy. The "Philly" cheese steaks are better than the ones I had in Philadelphia. Overall a clean, delightful place to get... More
