One of the best kept secrets in town.Great burgers & ice cream. Everything cooked to order so don't be in a hurry, but the wait isn't long...if weather permits sit outside at a picnic table...

Had the regular hamburger and fries. The burger was around $3.00 and much better than many burgers I've had for over twice the price. It looked like a hand-formed patty, was thick & juicy, not overcooked, nice crisp onion, lettuce, and tomato. Just a plain bun, but it wasn't soggy or too big for the meat. I was very happy... More

Found this by accident and glad I did. The lot was pretty full when we pulled in (wife and me). I ordered a large burger with everything and my wife ordered the regular veggie burger, 1 fry to share, 1 large drink, 1 small drink... sat in the car to eat... food was excellent. You order at the left window,... More

This is a flash back of the classic dairy bars where the food is made fresh. Their awesome burgers beat today's frozen fast food burgers hands down.

This place does not look like much BUT the chocolate milkshakes and burgers are worth stopping here for!

We were heading out of town, saw this place, stopped and had a delicious treat. I had a banana split and my buddy had a soft serve come. Hit the spot and was very efficient and cute. :)

I love the food and the service at King Kone. They are a very sweet bunch of people, and the food is very tasty. My favorite is the foot long chili dog and sweet potato fries.

Had a cheeseburger and fries here. Both were fine but nothing to write home about. Service was fast and the burger and fries were both freshly cooked. I ate it in my car listening to some classic Stones. (Not a bad dining experience. It smelled pretty good so I didn't wait to drive home and it was too cold to... More

I had a regular burger and a Dr. Pepper. So I can only speak to this two items, but it was great! The burger was freshly prepared and was quite tasty. Good price too. I'll definitely be back to sample more!

Have a hankering for soft ice cream, or fried pickles, or a great hamburger? King Kone is for you! The cones tower, and are excellent! It is a drive-in with no indoor seating, but if they sell it, you can count on it being great! Don't drive by - Stop In!

Thank Jack B
