Cracker Barrel Old Country Store

1421 S.W. Ashworth Place, Topeka

Cracker Barrel, which bills itself as "Half Restaurant. Half Store. All Country," was founded in Lebanon, Tenn., in the late 1960s to better meet the needs of country travelers. The founder felt that fast food was decreasing the quality and prevalence of roadside diners and sought to start a business to alleviate this problem. From its birth, Cracker Barrel has maintained this dedication to American South style breakfast, lunch and dinner favorites.

Dairy Queen/Orange Julius

2026 N.W. Topeka Blvd., Topeka

Dairy Queen is an American original, and this Dairy Queen in 2009 married with Orange Julius to expand its icy-cold offerings.

DQ faithful will find the usual array of treats. Plus, workers here will scoop ice cream into fresh-made waffle cones or waffle bowls. Orange Julius fans will find yummy smoothies and, of course, the Orange Julius (although there are plenty more fruity flavors to try).

Customers can use the drive through or hop out of their cars and walk up to the order window. This location is mostly about cold treats, but it also offers hot dogs. (Updated 5.12.10)
