Don’t miss this icon in Buena Vista! OMG so cute,great ice cream/food choices. Fun place for the family to have an ice cream or bite to eat. You do eat outside or across the street in the park. We had a cheeseburger and onion rings...would totally go back!!More

We stopped here for a treat for us, my wife and myself. This is a limited review since all we ordered was ice cream cones, vanilla. They were the biggest fill of ice cream that we have ever seen. Yeas, it was $2.99 each, but...they were worth $5.00 each with that much ice cream. Go here , it is worth it. The rest of the minute appears to be quite reasonable from burgers to assorted drive in faire.More

Stopped in here for lunch based off the reviews. We weren't disappointed but not blown away either. Burger was pretty good, chicken tenders decent. Did not try the ice cream which we probably should have. Outdoor seating and small seating for about 6 inside as...well. I'd go back.More

Long lines here before and after our whitewater rafting trip, but don't know why. It's a long-time favorite in BV, but it was overpriced and very average. My cheeseburger, small onion rings and a shake were $18. The burgers were average, chocolate shake was good,...and when I asked for an extra ketchup packet for the rings they said "we only give out one packet per order." Really? I just spent $31! The two dipped cones were a disaster...chocolate was hot and runny, and when she handed them to me they were already dripping all over the place. Way overrated... Dairy Queen is better.More

Stopped here for a sweet treat! Great dip cones (even cake cones) with an assortment of toppings. Lots of excellent burger options, too. Definitely worth the wait in line!!

Stopped in for an ice cream after our amazing white water rafting trip and the ladies at the ice cream shop were so incredibly rude. They certainly didn't seem like they wanted to be at work that day and kept rolling their eyes and talking...to us like we were a huge inconvenience to their day. Not to mention the malts were like soup. have never had customer service this bad in my life. These ladies should find a career that doesn't involve customer service. I unfortunately will not recommend this place to anyone.More

We were wandering through, headed to Leadville, and the troops were getting hangry. I made an aircraft carrier landing into a parking space when I saw it. Food is excellent. Lots of people here. Wait is short, though. Don't miss the onion rings.

Not sure why the line at this restaurant because the wait is unreal and the food is not good, so not sure why the line. I’m thinking it’s the ice cream, which we didn’t try. We tried the veggie burger (that they literally placed on...a bun with nothing else), the original cheeseburger (which was not great - so many other, better options). If you’re looking for a good lunch, or dinner, go across the street to Biggies - the food, wait and staff are so much more worth it!More

Didn't eat often in Buena Vista but we managed to eat her twice in our short five day stay. Everyone in our group raised it the best darn ice cream in Colorado. Highly recommended.

Yes, they do, but, it's only a few stools to sit at the counter, there are no tables, and they may be a little high to step up to for your Father. I hope something works out for you! It's a nice little place, and the food... More
