A friend and I stopped here after doing a hike at the TallGrass Prairie National Preserve. We arrived around 9pm thinking the place would be closed, but it was still open for business. We were some hungry hippos because we had spent 5hrs hiking at the Tallgrass Prairie and cereal bars, water, and fruit could only do so much. We were hoping for some good eating! While the menu isn’t big I finally decided on some pork chops while my friend had some brisket.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is historic. Hard wood floors, an old looking fire place, and old wooden chairs, tables, and booths . I absolutely loved my pork chops! It was delicious! Both of us were satisfied with the quality of the food. While the price is up there in the double digits I feel that it was well worth it. My pork chops were just right – nice, tender, and juicy. I would definitely love to go back to this restaurant during the summer or spring. Because during those seasons I ride my motorcycle on HWY177 to get a scenic view of the Flint Hills. What better way to satisfy your hunger than to grab a bite to eat at the Hays House Tavern? This guy will definitely be returning for some more small town KS cooking!
