Bernie is an old fashioned styled diner. Ernie has homemade chili, burgers and other sandwiches, fries and onion rings. It is an all around good place to eat. Staff is friendly and bring your lunch to table. They are only open certain days of the week, but very much worth eating here. They only take cash or check so be... More

A great burger with fresh toppings will make this a regular stop when I visit Hays. Very friendly service and pretty good fries.

Great quality burger, and outstanding chocolate shake with very friendly service. The place was clean. We will be back when we pass through even though its 7 mins off the interstate.

Fried bolonga, egg and cheese sandwich. That right aways tells you you're dealing with a local place that knows what it's customers like. Though I stuck with a cheeseburger and onion rings which were awesome, things like that sandwich or pickle-o's make this a fun place.

I have been eating here since I was a little kid and the hamburgers are always great! The chili and green bean dumpling soups are local favorites! We will always come back here!

Vernie's is a local legend that service home make sandwiches and trimmings. All their food is excellent and priced to please. It is locally owned and managed by a family that has done it for many years. I would recommend a trip to Vernie's for a great burger, soup, salads or other sandwiches.

The burger and shake I had were delicious and I got quick service. The place reminds me of a wonderful mom and pop establishment. I would definitely go back if I'm through the area again.

Didn't see it on TA but we were looking for someplace to eat in Hays and just happened by. The outside was to fun to pass up. Greeted by a very energetic waiter. Good fried tings on the menu including a catfish special. All the food is home made and it shows. Good things to eat. Homey and small townish.... More
