Hays – Trio Tap House
While traveling to western Kansas for meetings, I passed a billboard advertising the Trio Tap House. I’m always looking for great restaurants so I had to try the place on my way through! I was pleased to find a couple menu items featuring pork, including a pulled pork sandwich and a bbq beer brat. As you would expect, the place had an above average beer selection, with about eleven brews on tap, and many other selections available in bottles and cans. For this visit, I skipped the brews and went straight for lunch. I chose the bbq brat which included grilled onions and peppers. My brat came on a tasty toasted bun with a tangy barbecue sauce. The pork brat was really delicious! In fact, I wish I could have bought a pack of them to take home.
Since I was by myself, I opted to sit at the bar. A cool feature of Trio Tap House is their unique copper sheeted bar top. Large copper sheets are joined together with brass to create a bar top unlike what you see in other places.
As other restaurant reviewers have mentioned, Tro Tap House is a small restaurant. I would say it is less than half the size of a regular Applebee’s. Also, it’s not the cheapest restaurant in Hays, but the owners acknowledge this. Being the largest or cheapest restaurant in the area is not the goal. Providing more of an upscale dining experience in the Hays area is. If I lived in the area, I probably wouldn’t eat here frequently, but I would certainly come back for date night or on other special occasions.
When you’re ready for a night out, and want to try something different, be sure to put Trio Tap House on your list!
Until next time,
