A local tradition

A rather typical ice cream shop, similar to a DQ. Right next to a park so you can order and take your food across the street and sit in the shade and enjoy the views.

I'm still giving Ks a solid three stars. The sloth-like slow-moving service continues and I don't expect it to change any time soon. Today the burgers tasted better than I remember. This time I got a cheeseburger with everything on it. Yummy greasy deliciousness. If you're visiting, this is the place to check out on a sunny day.

Maybe it was because I was so hungry after hiking Mt. Princeton or maybe the cheeseburger was just that good. The 'restaurant' itself is small (takeout) but grab a picnic table at the park just behind for some great outdoor ambiance. They have a very unique way of calling out your order - they give you a celebrity name and... More

Always a family favorite, K' Old Fashion Burgers and Ice cream! Even in early November we have to stop by K's for lunch and ice cream, the burgers are great and the desert is always welcome! Family owned and operated K's has been in business for 60 years, stop by and enjoy!

We went here several times while we were in Buena Vista. Each time the folks were very friendly and the burgers were great and so was the ice cream. Give them a try!

This pace is horrible! Don't know what they are serving as ice cream but our whole family got sick here.

Stopped by this place for a few burgers and some ice cream. The hamburger were fresh and flavorful, they were also served quickly even though they were extremely busy. The park and picnic tables next to this establishment made our day, while making the ice cream taste sweeter.

When we saw the line to get a burger and fries we figured this place must be something good. We patiently waited in line and found our burgers were pretty much just an average burger and fries. They must be a bit of an institution in Buena Vista as it's very popular. The malts and ice cream were worth the... More

I always try to stop at this place to grab a burger or ice cream when I drive thru BV. But sometimes I have to pass because the line is too long :)

Don't miss this stop in BV for an ice cream treat. They will give you a great float or shake and a star name to come pick it up. Go over to the park next door to sit on a beach and enjoy the small town atmosphere.
