“Best onion rings in KC! Great walk up diner!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This restaurant has been around for years. Yet, they have done a great job by adding items to their menu. They have the usual hamburgers, chicken (grilled or breaded), tenderloins, but the items that you don't want to miss are the onion rings - real, thick cut onions in the center and the flavor, yum! Or, if you don't like onions, the tater tots are great too. There isn't a place to sit at this restaurant, strictly a walk in, order and leave place. You either eat in your car, take it home or take it the Royals or Chiefs stadium (depending on the season), either stadium is only 1 mile away.

“Average, not stellar”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

I've heard of people bragging about HiBoy for years, so I was excited to try it. It was ok....burgers were average. Nothing to write home about.

“The nostalgic hamburger”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

I have been eating at HiBoy since I was in high school. It was the after-the-game place to go for a burger and fries, and they also have great tater tots. Something about their burger tastes a little different than the standard fare. They have great onion rings and shakes too. It's nothing fancy, but then, what burger joint is? It does feel, though, like you've walked into the past when food tasted better.

“Burgers were OK”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

The burgers alone were not really that flavorful, but the other ingredients in the sandwich gave it a unique taste. The fries were really nothing special. I would eat there again (if in the area), but would not go out of my way to eat there.
