If you consider $12 for a Burger fries and a drink a value meal than this is the place. Otherwise you might as well hit any other place in town. The soft serve is mediocre and you really won't feel ya got any kind of deal. Lot's of better ice cream in town.

This is a local institution that for me has always been somewhat overrated. But you will nevertheless find solid fast food burgers and ice cream here. It loses a point because there is never not a line, and you can wind up waiting quite a long time for your food. More than once, I have skipped the crowd and gone... More

Stopping in Buena Vista for dinner, we were glad to happen upon K’s, one of the only restaurants open past 7 o’clock on a Sunday night. And it turned out to be good, too! The restaurant itself is small, with limited seating, but has a very fun atmosphere. You’ll get a pop star’s name for your order instead of an... More

The quintessential small town ice cream dream stop. The park nearby and the fun atmosphere adds to the fun. K's is always hopping and the treats are delicious too. Enjoy!

My in-laws have a 2nd home in Buena Vista and we always make it a tradition to get a burger and shake from K's. (This is during the months of April through October, since they are closed during the winter). Keep in mind, a hamburger is $3.95 and it's just on a regular sized bun, not a big Burger King... More

What a fun place. Expect to wait but it's worth it. Great burgers and shakes. Gave us a celebrity name that was called when our food was ready. Seating is a premium as it's limited and outside so the weather can be a problem. There is a park nearby though. Take time to enjoy this local place.

Great place to get a burger and onion rings. There's no seating inside so if the weathers bad you'll have to get it to go. I didn't care for the blaring "oldies" music but I guess that's a better option than hearing the street noise.

Great food and ice cream place from the 1950s. The ice cream was awesome, and the people were a delight. No wonder every time we drove by it there were lines of people waiting and ordering there food. Such a great place!
