Apparently, the people of Hays love fried chicken, because there are a number of chicken places in the top restaurants. We decided to try JD's. The staff was super friendly, and it seems to be very popular with the locals. The food was merely okay, though. It was certainly home style cooking, but it lacked seasoning or flavor.

Huge portions & also served with a choice of vegetable or salad & choice or fresh corn bread or homemade roll. Still managed to enjoy a great piece of homemade cherry pie ala mode👍... More

Stopped in to J D's for lunch. Would never go through Hays without stopping for great chicken & noodles. A lot of chicken and great noodles, what more do you need? Had an appetizer of chicken livers which were perfect and shared a piece of awesome coconut cream pie. Good food, great service. Great place to go for anything chicken.

Very good food and service. This is an old-fashion restaurant which is still serving great meals. Their chicken-fried steaks are a good choice and their open-face roast beef sandwiches with mashed potatoes and gravy are excellent. It is located a couple of miles south of I-70 straight down Vine St to 8th street and worth the drive. Give it a... More

Both my wife and I love the Chicken & Noodles. I have eaten chicken & noodles many places and will tell you that J D's serve some of the best. When I am in Hays this is the lunch place to go. Nothing fancy, just good food and great service. And save some room for tasty pie, your tummy will... More
