Enjoyed a double cheeseburger with grilled onions, Large fries and drink at K's today in Buena Vista CO. It's located right on the main drag through town with a very nicely maintained city park adjacent to it which provides extra seating if you wish and more parking as well. Both inside and outside seating. Most opt for the outside. The... More

Great burgers and fries. Order at the window and they assign you a name for pickup. We were the Lone Ranger.

I was with a group that was finishing an 8 day backpacking trip in the mountains. We had passed this place on our way to the mountains and saw the line was insane, which of course means it must be good. We were anxious to get back in to town to try this place. Divine burgers and milkshakes! Highly recommend... More

Enjoyed a much needed burger, fries, and delicious shake at K's after a long week of backpacking!! On a nice day with the park next door it's hard to beat!

We've been here many times in the last 30 years. Nothing fancy, they don't have many places to sit. We usually get ours to go and go to the park picnic tables just behind the parking lot. Burgers, fries, Ice cream. Orders are taken and they give you a name for your order. This time I was Bette Davis. The... More

Stopped by here this weekend (it is probably our 50th time here) for some ice cream and shakes, it is always hit or miss but waited for 30 minutes and moved halfway down the line. It was then we decided that this is the last time waiting and they are really not worth the long wait and expensive price. It's... More

Huge wait in outdoor line for this place. Not sure why. Family had burgers. Said they were okay. I had fish and chips which was very poor quality and small. I was disappointed. Should have had the beef. Ice cream was good but two long lines to get entree and desert. No seating except park behind restaurant. The place seems... More

We were looking for a place to get a bite to eat our first night in Buena Vista. As we drove by we noticed a long line at K's so we decided to give it a try since that's usually a good sign. After about a 20 minute wait, we opted for the chicken finger basket and the fish basket.... More

Been coming to CO for 20+ years and many of those have included passing through Buena Vista. We always stopped at K's after climbing a 14er of after a race. Over past three years when visiting K's our wait has been 30 to 45 min. Only because the restaurant in understaffed. The person taking your order is also multitasking in... More
