We usually do take out (because 3 kids), but hubby and I were able to sneak away for a quick bite, and as usual Hayward's didn't disapoint. Beer was cold, server was friendly, the barbecue was yummy and tender, and it was affordable. I especially...LOVE their dry rub wings. Always moist and perfectly seasoned.More

Do not look down on this little wooden shack. They serve the best Burnt Ends on earth! Service is great too. We ordered a whole lot of meat, from ribs to burnt ends to turkey, chicken and pork. We also had fried okra, onion rings...and coleslaw. Yummy altogether.More

I have been there quite a few times, and really like the BBQ. Nice staff as well. I just dont think I will ever order from them online again. I went to the website, placed my order at 615 and it said my order would...be ready at 640. Great so I loaded the dog up for the ride and arrived at 6:45, giving them 5 extra minutes so they would for sure have the order done and I could get in and out without having the dog in the car too much longer than necessary. I got in the restaurant and waited right behind two ladies who were putting in there to go order at the register. The took my name and told me the order would be right up. After 20 minutes, the other ladies order was handed to them, and about 5 minutes later my order was given to me. No acknowledgement or anything of the time delay. So I paid the $1.50 fee for the convenience of using the website, paid the tip online, and still had to wait and extra 30 minutes past when the order was supposed to be ready. My suggestion, skip the website, just go there and order if you want to eat there.More

Hayward's has been around a long time in the KC area and it's easy to see why. The BBQ is amazing...just enough sweet and spicy heat! The restaurant is a casual, local spot just down the street from Old Town Lenexa with very friendly staff...and customers. We go there often for ribs (Thursday special) and their burnt ends are fantastic! We recently ordered 7 slabs of ribs, 8 lbs of burnt ends, a gallon of baked beans and a gallon of the sweet, vinegar style coleslaw take-out for a large party...it was all fantastic! I highly recommend Hayward's if you want great BBQ and local "flavor."More

This was the first time I have been to Haywards since the move. Staff is very friendly and the food was excellent. Only little thing was the BBQ sauce was not as spicy. Will definitely go back.
