This is hands down my favorite BBQ place ever. I've had LOTS of BBQ from places all over the country and this little place in my own town is my favorite. The food is simply amazing. Sandwiches and ribs. Fries or onion rings. Lots of deep fried things. And the best pink lemonade you'll ever taste. Service is really good... More

One of my favorites in town. Never disappointed with anything. The pink lemonade is beyond awesome and with a double burger and fried pickles you can't go wrong

I think people like this place because their parents liked this place. Other than the pink lemonade, nothing really stands out to me.

Been going to Haydens for 50+ years...love the memories. Never hit town without a stop. Love the BBQ, extra sauce, and a giant pink lemonade. Friendly service, inside or out at the same window opened as a "drive" in! Never go without seeing someone or something from my past.

Very cool little BBQ spot. The sauce is great, and the meat was cook well. Not the best I've had by a long shot, but I wasn't disappointed. They had shirts and signs talking about their famous lemonade, so that's what I got. Watch out it is incredibly sweet! I ended up watering mine down, a lot. I did like... More

Hayden's BBQ sauce is awesome, sweet, tangy, spicy a lot like a Carolina sauce. The BBQ is really good, however for the price of the sandwiches; they are very skimpy on the meat.

We happened into Poplar Bluff at lunch time and decided to try to find an interesting place to eat. We came across Hayden's sitting off the beaten path, and we definitely weren't disappointed. The restaurant is in great condition, yet it looks like it is straight out of the 1950s. We just ordered a basic burger and fries, but this... More
