Thereâ€™s this hamburger place in North Kansas City that is open 24/7
and are known most for their little juicy hamburgers with grilled
onions. Steve S. was told about it by a client in Kansas City. Hayes
has been in business since October 1955 and their chili recipe dates
back to 1906. It is a very small restaurant with only six two-person
booths, a lunch counter and they only take cash. The sign on the
wall says they can have 42 people in the building. We counted the
seats and that means 20 people would have to be standing. We
were lucky to find 6 seats at the counter.
The menu is located on the wall. The single burger is the size of a slider,
the double and triple are two or three singles formed into one patty.
If you are sitting at a table the server will yell at your table from behind
the counter for your order. When your order is ready you are expected
to pick up your order from the bar squeezing between people to grab
your plates or people at the counter will pass your food over to you.
Steve ordered a chocolate shake for Samantha and was told by the
server that if he had time he would make it. Someone at a booth also
ordered a shake and was told â€œweâ€™re busy so I donâ€™t know if I will have
time.â€ They both got their shakes but it took a long time.
This is the tip bowl that sits on the counter next to the cash register.
The guys thank everyone who tipped for their support.
This was our food when it came off the grill.
This is my cheese hamburger with onion rings.
Steve S. and I got chili. He added hot sauce and pepper to his and like
it. I didnâ€™t like the texture and it really didnâ€™t have a lot of flavor. It
was ground beef with a few beans and a healthy dose of grease. I pass
mine down to the girls who all tasted it but didnâ€™t eat it all.
Holan got a perm the other dayâ€¦.so what do you think?
