Welcome to Gutierrez, where we take pride in being a “Locally Family Owned” Tex-Mex restaurant! From our humble beginnings and moving to Kansas from the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas in 1968, I can remember trading the migrant fields to cooking and working with my mother & father, Ramiro & Lela Gutierrez, in a small 20 seat restaurant in Russell, Kansas. It was there that I learned the art of traditional Tex-Mex cooking, by using a simple philosophy “Prepare it fresh & make it flavorful. You can always tell a good restaurant, by the enchilada they serve!”

Customers came and the reputation of Gutierrez was prominent all over Kansas! We then came to Hays in 1984, and have been a part of this great community ever sense! We understand that it is essential to deliver a quality product, give an exceptional value, and to continually strive to exceed your

expectations as our customers. We cherish your choice to come and enjoy Gutierrez for your dining experience! At Gutierrez, we’re a family, and we’re still growing and changing!

When visiting family in the Hays KS area, I make sure we treat ourselves to the terrific food at Gutierrez. Not only is the food great but the atmosphere is too; service from waiters like Adam makes for a wonderful all around experience. I would encourage everyone to “treat” themselves to a superb dinning experience at Gutierrez.
