Like a drive up back in the 50s and 60s, this burger joint is the bomb. In the same location for over 60+ years...must be because the food is good, especially the burgers. Oh, the fries, oh, my, they are coated with something and are...More

This little place is amazing. One must wait outside in line to order at the window. We waited inline for 30 minutes before we made it to the order window, and then another 15 minutes for the food. And the wait was worth it. The...More

While in Buena Vista, CO don't miss the K's Old Fashioned Burgers restaurant. Located on US Hwy 24 N but arrive early - long lines form but worth a "munch". There is a wonderful park next door - cool and plenty of trees. If interested...More

Great place to get burgers and fries. There are always a lot of people waiting in line for good reason - cheap and easy fast-food. This is how McD's started out and eventually lost their quality. Not so this place. Also, there are always beautiful...More

The burgers and fries are very good, what you would expect from a good old small town burger place. Ice cream cones and shakes are excellent also. The line can get pretty long sometimes but they keep it moving.

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
