This shop is a wonderful piece of yesteryear and getting your car worked on. Specializing in muffler and exhaust system work, they do other work as well. It's for all intents and purposes a "mom and pop" operation. Bill may own the business, but it's master Muffler Technician TIM SCHEIDEGGER who does the work.We phoned before making the trip to Topeka (We live in Lawrence; have a 2003 Buick Century with 103k miles on it, and the muffler was failing: Rust; a few pits from stones; and it was starting to get noisy. We were SHOCKED when we got price quotes from the "local" shops. The least costly was $150 from Downtown Muffler with NO warranty and a lot of efforts to upsell AND a refusal to install a muffler if we provided it. Meineke and Midas were both at around $250.00. We eventually found Bill's business listed via an internet search and made contact via phone.Bottom line: We were in and out (had an appointment) and $80.00 lighter which included all parts and labor and a lifetime warranty. As TIM noted, "I know the quality of my work" and that's why he is able to provide a lifetime warranty. Tim was friendly, professional, beyond fair, showed us possible issues for the future (none of which was work his Center does) and let us take our own look see while the car was on the hoist which created a wonderful opportunity to take pictures for future reference. He takes great pride in his work; builds and races car in his spare time and it was simply a thrill to find an old timey style auto repair shop with fair and honest pricing coupled with superior craftsmanship. We're pleased as punch. (We had the work done on May 4, 2015 and the 2003 Buick is as quiet as a church mouse).

FANTASTIC! Don't let the fact that any new business has some 'start up' problems, while training staff, etc….the FOOD here is amazing, and the manager and workers work very hard to please EVERY customer! We have tried most the chicken entrees and the meat is tender and flavorful, while the veggies are crisp and fresh. We love the fried rice that comes with it, because it has much better flavor than plain white rice. All the appetizers are fresh and tasty. The EGG DROP SOUP is one of the best I have ever eaten! I could drink it out of a cup…..YUM! Also, the portions are all generous, so we many times get two meals out of each of our orders. Call ahead, and then just drive through to pick it up…it has always been very quick for us. SO HAPPY to have this new, delicious food available in a convenient location just East of Lake Shawnee! Try it…..you will be a fan, just like us….and everyone we have sent there!
I HIGHLY recommend to eat here. Place is under new management. Go in for lunch and try anything on the menu you will go back for dinner. Their tortas are delicious!!! Their other dishes are yummy but their tortas are their specialty. The customer service is great/friendly. You can either sit and be waited on or order at the register to eat in or carry out. The location is clean. Their prices are unbeatable as well as their quality so feel free to stop by and give it a chance if you haven't already.
