The best little diner in the country. Very friendly people and incredible milkshakes make this local spot very popular. Not to mention the hamburgers!!! Oh my!

My wife and I were on a bike ride from Tipp City, Ohio, to Troy, Ohio, and we parked our bikes and walked the streets of beautiful Downtown Troy. We were charmed by the terrific renovation the city has accomplished in the last five years. As we were walking down the sidewalk of Main Street, an older gentleman was coming... More

The best double cheeseburger I have had in a long time. This restaurant has a of history 82 years in business.The staff there is old-school. Classic way of fixing your food.

I've been going to K's since I was a little girl. The burgers, fries, and milk shakes are so good. It's always a treat to go to K's. My kids are now big fans! You won't be disappointed!

Located downtown Troy, this restaurant has been around a long time and locals are very fond of it. It's like stepping back in time for a burger and fries and the service is quick. Downtown Troy is very nice, lots of interesting shops. Be sure to visit. David Fair on the Square!

It brings back yesteryear. Put your order in at the counter give them your name and find a seat. You will get called when order is ready. All items are made to order. Don't miss the cheeseburgers and fries

I think the best thing about this place is the vintage-ness of it. My mother in law swears by their tuna melt, so that's what I got on my first visit to K's. It was okay. I didn't see anything special. It was good, just not Great! It's very reminiscent of a diner back in time.

Just picked up lunch at K's in downtown Troy. K's is an old fashion hamburger joint...where many Presidents and political candidates have stopped to get a bite to eat. It was a fun experience. It appeared that each of ladies serving the customers have been working there for years.....truly old fashion customer service! They remember all their regular customers and... More

A pleasant step back into time. The sort of place Steak and Shake tries to imitate. Great burgers and tenderloins but the choices are many, and delicious. The staff is wonderful. They still remember what my kids ordered in the 1980's. It has been a must stop for politicians including presidential candidates for decades. K's is more than a restaurant... More

There was a time, when there was no competition this was an OK place in Troy. Sadly it is a bad, below average diner, still hoping people accept their terrible grease filled burgers, tyhey actually keep them in a pan of grease. Chili has a mild flavor but barely any meat. Sad. Last time was truly a last time!
