This is perfect road food! And you get to be your favorite superhero, rock star or movie star for a minute! I saw Shania Twain, Zeus and Candace Bergen (-:

Stopped on the way into town for a burger and were not disappointed. The old-time burger stand style was charming and the service was good. We came back later for ice cream.

My husband includes a stop here every time he heads that way to conquer another 14-er.... HAVE to have an ice cream cone. Doesn't do the food, just desert! It is soft serve, so being rather persnickity, I only indulge in a cone when it is really hot out!

This place serves fastfood, mainly burgers, fries, and hot dogs, to various celebrities. After you order and pay for your food they give you the name of some star; Elvis Presley, Pearl Bailey, Marilyn Monroe, etc.; and you wait for that name to be called to receive your food. It adds a little fun to the ordering process. The food... More

Love getting to be famous for a few minutes- we were Willie Nelson this past stop:) Burger combos are affordable and good! Like the fresh fruit shakes and malts. Always a busy place in summer, so prepare for a line. It does go pretty quickly.

This place was quaint and had great ice tea and burgers! Also, they give you a famous name to call out your order - too cute!

An icon of the area. The burgers were small and only average. I would suggest skipping them entirely and just go for the shakes. My wife had chocolate and I had strawberry, both excellent!

K's is well-known to Buena Vista tourists and visitors. I like the use of celebrity names for tourists and the posted quotes on the wall. Yet, the service from the teenagers working the counter is abysmal, and the food is not very good. It's all from Sysco or another company, frozen and flash fried. Shakes are still good.

We checked this place out based on the line out the door and a quick check on the Trip Advisor app to see what people were saying. Wish we would have tried somewhere else. I don't see what the big deal is. The food seemed like just regular ammonia laced Cisco food products served on white buns. You honestly can... More

Beware. Very busy at lunch. Staff under pressure. Boss not to be seen.Our burgers were charred but raw inside. Not rare. Raw. Fried "chicken" was a composite loaf thing with the taste of tofu. Staff claimed they serve all burgers medium rare which is hard to believe for health reasons. Rather, it seems the attitude is "you're a tourist, we'll... More
