This is one of my favorite late night spots for a burger. I usually get the triple with extra onions. You can't beat their tots or onion rings. Throw a little of their chili on top of your burger for an extra punch of flavor.

Simple small hamburgers cooked with onion. Good chili but a little bland. Chili powder and hot sauce were available. Great hole-in-wall atmosphere. Small diner very friendly people. Will be back again.

This is a great, hole-in-the-wall, iconic place that serves pretty good hamburgers as well as breakfast (all times of the day) and a great looking tenderloin. OK, i also had the pie which didn't take long to finish. I got there about 4pm and to...More

Local hamburger stop for all of who live in Kansas City. Made to order with the best French fries in town.

We ordered two triple tenderloins burgers. We didn't expect chicken - our whoops! Overall, an old neighbourhood burger joint with lots of character. Food was good. A few tables and a lunch counter for seating.

We have eaten at Hayes at least weekly for years. It has a very limited menu, will not make an omelet, has no lettuce or tomatoes in the building, no waffle iron, small hamburgers and do not accept plastic. What else could anyone want?

I got there about 1pm. I had wanted to go to Church's chicken but the remodel is still not done. So I wandered up the road to see what I could find as my stomach was rumbling. Yeah, I found this place. I decided on...More

This old fashioned burger joint is a breath of fresh air. The hamburgers are exactly what you want from a burger place. They have many options like singles and doubles, with onions, pickles, ketchup, and mustard. For me, it was perfect inside, but if you...More

Hayes is an institution. Open 24/7 with breakfast and rest of menu. Try the burgers -- freshly-ground beef. They are small so get a double. Fries are very good. The tenderloins are not breaded and palm-sized, so order a double. Good selection of pies from...More

Fairly sure that they serve everything on their menu 24/7. May be that biscuits and gravy have a cut off time, but I'm just not sure.
