Visited on a Wednesday evening and this place was very busy. The wait for the food was a little longer than I would have liked but they do make each item fresh. They have a large variety on the menu. Everything was delicious, I had the Ruben cheese steak with fries, my husband had the chicken cordon blue po boy... More

If you like philly cheesesteak sandwiches you'll love this place. They also make great milkshakes and malts from hand dipped ice cream. That makes a great dessert.

This is the best sandwich shop in Emporia. The hot wing cheese steak is the best. Also love their cheese fries, po boys and salads. You can't go wrong with anything you order off their menu.

The Philly Cheesesteaks were good, very tasty. You can even get them with Cheese Wiz. Price seemed awfully high though for what you get, especially in a small college town. I can get better sandwiches for much less in KC, so I was a little sticker shocked. Good food though.

TripAdvisor reviews took us to Do-B's during a day spent in Emporia. We would never have found it otherwise and probably wouldn't have ventured in if we'd just driven by. Thank you, TripAdvisor reviewers! I ordered the CB (aka, cheeseburger) with everything on it, plus (for an extra 50 cents) onion rings. Hubby (who lived in New Orleans for years... More

We come here a couple times a month for their mouthwatering burgers. Simple made but huge flavor! This is a must stop if your traveling through. The only downside is that you might fall asleep from being too sleepy after eating! I recommend the BCB (bacon cheeseburger) or try one of their PO-Boys ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Just good mom n pops shop. Not cheap not fast not fancy. But good! Tired of the chains stop n see the folks at do-bs. Italian stallion is very good and Saturday breakfasts are even better than the sandwiches. Have eaten here several times and have never been dissatisfied. Don't expect anything flashy, just good food and service.

As far as appearances, this is an unassuming hole-in-the-wall, in a not so impressive area. Don't let that stop you. The food is very good. I ordered the Californian sandwich and it was delicious. I also went at an odd time in the afternoon, but the people working there were very friendly, and seemed to care if I was pleased... More

Stopped for lunch. Great burgers fries and rings. But the special was Philly cheese steak sandwiches and the homemade Jambalaya. Whoa! In Emporia KS. Yes my friends, excellent food. I had a Pastrami cheese Melt sandwich which was absolutely delicious. Lots of meat and melted cheese mixed on the grill served on a toasted roll and wrapped up tight to... More
