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.

This is a surprise, if there ever was one. It has been in Gladstone, for a long time & is a favorite, for a lot of people. It is always busy. I had the tenderloin. It was good -- most people talk about the hamburgers,...More

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?

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

This place has the best burgers in the city. Singles are sliders with grilled onions so order mutiple singles, or a double or triple. Large menu consists of breakfast, chili, burgers, shakes, tenderloins, etc. The only downside to Hayes is they only accept cash, which...More

Perfect example of a ma & pa shop with no ma. All items are made homemade and to order. Malts and shakes are awesome. A little bit of everything on the menu. They claim 44 people could sit in there, small booths and bar stools....More

We made this our lunch stop when looking for blue KC fountains. Adults should get a double and singles are great for small kiddos.

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.
