Expensive but worth it!

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... read 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!

Great and fast little stop for an ice cream treat. They have fast food too but we didnt try that. Wait staff is friendly and they do have a bathroom. Inside seating is limited but there are places to eat outside and at the park next door.

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!
