Great restaurant, super fast, clean and friendly service. The food was great, and didn't have to wait hours for it at a reasonable price. If you're ever in the area you won't be disappointed.

We had been traveling all day on our way to CO, and needed a break. Although the restaurant was busy, and smelled good, the service was very, very slow. They kept muttering about a big group that had just been in there, and seemed a little shell-shocked. The wait staff seemed distracted. No refills on our tea. Husband got a... More

I was worried as I stopped in Hays for the night while traveling I-70 that I wouldn't be able to find a restaurant with a bar that was open past 10. Thankfully this place was open until midnight. The drinks were great.

Ordered a glass of wine and the glass was beyond dirty and greasy. Turns out my knife was also dirty. Ordered one of their new grilled steak dinners and the steak was like chewing on an... More
