Okay, I really like COK but this one was pretty awful...and I think that's why nobody went there... So it was closed just last month...

As of 3/1/2014 there is no longer a Carlos O'Kelly's in Hays. Due to the cost of the lease agreement with owner of property and restaurant owners they closed this location.

Ordered lunch to go from Carlos O'Kelly's today. The food was not hot and they were just finishing preparing it as I picked it up. Furthermore, the guacamole that was on top of the Chimichunga was NOT fresh. If fact, it was more brown than green. Very disappointed. The staff was friendly when I picked the food up, so that...

Typical corporate microwave food with poor service. Went here because we had some coupons but we'd of been better off to toss them. We won't go back.

This place is not great but no bad. If you are looking for average food then this is the place for you. Did appreciate the gluten free menu.

We loved our servers s enjoyed talking with him and his trainee after our meal. Great food and a lot of it! Margarita was good, they were having specials on just about everything, so our meal was very reasonable. Wish we had one in Alabama! !

There's not much to choose from in Hays. We were staying at a nearby hotel and decided to check this place out. It was pretty good but not excellent. Give them a try, they have good prices and a friendly staff. The margarita's were good though!

I don't understand how they stay in business with all the superior and tastier options in town. It must be the highway traffic.

So glad we decided to eat here. We bypassed Applebee's as we always have some kind of unpleasant experience there. Close to our hotel, we walked across the street to try Carlos O'Kelly's and had great time. Sam, our server was great! She was very attentive to our needs, making certain my grandson's soda was always filled. Nice that she... More
