Good chow at good prices

Vernie's is a Hay's institution, kind of a dive but clean. Good old fashion hamburger joint-cooked to order & fresh!

That is part of the problem T-Mermis is you have been eating here since you were a kid and this place has not up dated anything, including the bathrooms? I made my once of year stop to see if they had changed or at least took down the rude signs. The service is good here and many other places in... More

I've been eating at Vernies since I was a kid. They always have friendly service and great food. I think a couple of the others reviews are trashing Vernies just to make their crappy restraunts look good. I've been to the Q, the food is alright but it takes forever. Vernies is better by far.

Has the old time drive in appearance, although you need to walk inside to eat here. Burgers are made fresh, and are decent sized. Good value for your money, and great taste. Better than McDonalds or Burger King, and juicier than Freddie's.

Vernie's has the best green bean dumpling soup! Restaurant looks like you stepped back in time to the 1960's.

Looks like the hamburgers are the frozen burgers from Wal-Mart. Onion rings were good, this place is sub~par to say the least.

The locals of Hays have kept this mom-and-pop burger shop in business since 1969, and there's a reason for that. It's not as cheap as the Wendy's and Sonic across the street, and it doesn't have the exterior flash. What it does feature is a family-oriented business with old-fashioned service and quality food. The interior is cramped, but retains an... More
