Old fashion hamburger prepared right in front of you on the grill. No frills all business 50's style diner. Food was fixed quick, service good, food good. I had a hamburger and a bowl of chili. No complaints. Try this place out

for 50 years. This is a part of Northland history. You can say it's overpriced for what you get, it sorta is. But the memories that go with this place last a life time! It is THE classic diner. I've loved everything about it since I was a kid. This is where you go for chili hash browns and eggs.... More

I went to Hayes for the first time in 22 years. The burgers were a joke then and still are. The money for these burgers and fries are way to expensive. They are the size of a 50 cent piece with little taste.

I go hear every once in a while and enjoy the food and friendly service every time! The burgers and fries are the classic type that you just can't find anymore. You can definitely taste the love in the food. Can't wait to go there again for vacation! (I used to live in KC but I moved to Hawai'i)

Patties small and tasteless. Other than being open over 50 years creating a nostalgia this place has nothing to offer.

This is my all time favorite burger place, next to LC's of course. The burgers are always fresh and hot. I love how they cool them and they're done so quick. The grilled onions are a nice touch. This place reminds me of White Castle with the size of their burgers, you'd better order a dbl or a triple and... More

Went to this diner a couple of times recently. I wanted to show my boy that there was more to eating out than McDonalds. The diner is rather small, but we never had a problem finding a seat. The service was great and the food was pretty good too. We were served quickly and the cost is very reasonable. They... More

If you like Town Topic or LC's, this place is better! The food is great. The service is good, but could be faster. Overall, a good place to check out.

The burgers may be small, but the flavor is huge. Fresh made in front of you so no heat lamps and warmers. Nothing special on the burger, just salt pepper and onions. Chef Tom was an artist in his craft.
