We visit my Mom every summer and it always amazes me that people wait in line here. Just a couple minutes down Main Street is much better ice cream and good. South Main has brand new place with great flavors and good coffee and then let the kids burn off the sugar ugh in the park.

If you are driving through Buena Vista--it is a MUST! Best shakes, best fries, yummy burgers and super affordable....huge park behind the restaurant allows for a great lunch/dinner place!

We drove by K's dairy bar twice and there was a line at the window each time. We decided to stop for lunch before our rafting tour. We had one of the best burgers we have had in years!

My husband has been stopping here for years when passing through Buena Vista. At 2:00 in the afternoon on a hot summer day, there was a long line waiting to order milk shakes and other "fast food." The storefront is quaint, with an old-fashioned walk-up window. Once you've placed your order, you step inside and wait for your "name" to... More

Hard to pass up a stop at Kay's on our way thru Buena Vista. Great ice cream treats, and good for lunch or evening snacks, and you can bring your goodies to the park across the street. Don't miss it!

Often a line out the door. Outside seating. They give you a movie or rock star's name to claim your order. I was Roger Moore last time I visited. It's the little things like this that make it memorable. The burgers and fries are awesome. Can't go wrong with whatever you order. Remember... there's often a line... for a reason.

We had heard a great deal about K's so decided to stop for an icecream. The wait was a good 15 minutes and the ice cream was about average. In fact Sonic is better and MUCH faster.

We stopped here on Monday about Noon and it was packed as usual. The reasons were obvious after we received our food. burgers were just as they claimed...world class. We had Onion Rings which were great and a couple of sodas. The service was quick and seating was tiny inside, but ample outside. If their seating is full, there is... More

My husband and I decided to take a scenic drive with K's being our ultimate destination. We left from the Almont area and went north and over the Cottonwood Pass. We were both starving when we rolled into K's. We've been there before and it was great then. The line was long and was reaching the parking lot when we... More
