Vikings Grille to Open in Former Famous Dave’s, Cowboy Chicken and Fuzzy’s Taco Close

A Topeka based grill is opening their second location; this time in Manhattan. The former Famous Dave’s restaurant located at 910 Commons Place will be the home of Vikings Grille, a family-friendly grill for the community.

The Viking name and theme comes from the strong ties of two owners and their connection to North Topeka; the location of their first grill and the owners being Seaman High graduates. The Topeka ownership consists of Damon and Sara Reed and Scott and Jessica Huston.

Their menu will have quality burgers, wings, and other grill food. The owners are focused on creating a welcoming staff, great menu, and overall grill experience for their customers. Vikings Grille features a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.

Vikings Grille was named the Best Sports Bar in Topeka in 2018 by The Topeka Capitol Journal.
