A favorite of Trojans since 1935. All the food is locally sourced and prepared from scratch. Yummy, if not necessarily good-for-you.

K's hamburgers have been around longer than I have. An old fashioned dining experience. Great food with a nostalgic twist. try it out!

My husband took me here because it was part of his growing up experience. It's "Happy Days" look has you wondering if the Fonze was going to stop in soon. You can sit at the counter and watch your little ball of hamburger cook (float) in the large well of grease,or you can order at the counter and carry it... More

As locals, we have enjoyed K's food for years. It's not the kind of food you should eat every day or maybe even very often. The burgers are hand pattied & fried on a grill that is full of grease. Yummy, flavorful grease. :) The fries are crispy on the outside & soft on the inside. It's one of the... More

Hands down, one of the best old "luncheonette/diners" i've ever been to! A classic hamburger joint, that excels in the service as well as the food. Had a couple of cheeseburgers/fries/onion rings/ and a chocolate malted milk shake - everything came out hot/fast/fresh and was incredibly good. They grind their own beef (locally raised) and the person taking your order... More

Like a step back in time...you just dont find many of these retro diners any more. Refill on your coke costs $.50 cents...sit at the bar for waitress service, or sit at a table and you are on your own to get your tray when the food is ready. Just dont get your front tire on the sidewalk, or Officer... More

The food was good. This is a very old fashioned place with old fashioned hamburgers. The milkshakes were awesome. The only problem I had was the attitude of the servers. We sat at the counter and the ladies cooking talked about everyone coming in or going out. I wondered what was said about me when we left. There were other... More

K's is a classic. It's been serving hamburgers since 1935 and is run by the daughter of one of the founders. Hamburgers are made of fresh beef ground on premises each day and cooked on a wet grill right behind the counter. This is exactly what a 'burger joint should be plus they have excellent pies and serve breakfast all... More

I drive some distance to eat at K's. I meet buddies in Troy who know this is where I like to eat. As a self-proclaimed burgervore, I know who has good burgers made from freshly ground beef, & K's is the place in Troy. Their other items are also good. They have a number of homemade things like salad dressings.... More

You definitely get your monies worth at Ks. When you order a milk shake they give you the whole container that they made it in so you get it all! Hamburgers are tasty. It hasn't stayed in business for over 75 years for nothing!
