Last year I wrote a review and rated K's as above average. This year I ordered the fish and chips and could not even eat the fish because it was terrible. I threw it away which pained me because it was expensive. I ordered 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.

After a morning of rafting, this place hit the spot for a late lunch. Was our first visit. What caught our attention was the long line ordering food. The burgers and fries were good. The staff was friendly. Very limited seating, but with nice weather...More

You can tell something about place by the lines waiting to get in. At K's, sometimes you have a long wait for ice cream. But once you get it, it is good stuff! Walk to the park next door, sit at a park bench in...More

Right on Main Street in Buena Vista. Serving up classic burgers and shakes in the same location for 60+ years. Get your order and grab a picnic table in the park next door and eat riverside!

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
