Everyone in our family looks forward to an Ice Cream at K's. Walk to the beautiful park right behind it and enjoy your ice cream. They will also make you famous as they call you to pick up your order.

We stopped on a whim. Just driving thru town and there it was. BAM! Old fashioned Ice Cream parlour Americana style. They did not dissapoint. Butterscotch dipped ice cream cone? Really?? OMG. It was awesome. The kids loved it, we loved it. So glad we stopped. And the way they call you for your order. I was Burt Reynolds. Our... More

The only downfall this place has is that it is closed in the winter and that stinks for those of us that are local! The hamburgers are really tasty and the milkshakes are yum! There is always a crowd, they are very popular!

Come in and try a 'real' old time burger and shake. The cherry shakes are GOOD. Fast, friendly, efficient service produces great food at reasonable prices.

Walk up (not drive up), order burgers, fries and shakes, get food wrapped in wax paper (hamburger) or a cup of fries, eat in the park next door - what could be more American? The single 1/4 burger wasn't much, highly recommend one of the burger specialties. They take credit cards without a fuss and are efficiently friendly even during... More

Ordered burgers & fries then headed to the park (across the side street) for a picnic. It was a really good & inexpensive meal. Fries very crisp & tasty; I wouldn't skip them. I might try something different in another trip here but it will be hard. The one thing I would do different is buy a few craft beers... More

There aren't that many places in Buena Vista to eat, especially when you are pulling a trailer or driving an RV. It is on the east side as you are coming in from the south of town. There is a Mexican place on the left, but we couldn't get to it. We found a place to park, but then we... More

We've been coming to Buena Vista (aka BV) for 20+ years and we always have to stop at our favorite burger joint after we climb a 14er (that's a peak 14,000' or higher and Colorado has 52 of them). It's a burger, fries & shake joint, not gourmet burgers, just good old-fashion burgers and better than the fast-food chains. There... More

Great burgers, fries and malts, wrapped in wax paper bags and placed in brown paper sacks. We made a pit stop in Buena Vista and were pleasantly surprised. The service was fairly quick at mid afternoon and we enjoyed our lunch driving down the highway.

Just want a good, old-fashioned burger and fries with a shake? This is the place. The lines can get long, but it moves pretty quickly.
