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.

We have been going to K's going on 15 years now and enjoy their burgers, onion rings and shakes. Only open in summer months and usually has a line.

This place messes with my diet every time we vacation here. Yummy fries and ice cream. Fun place to take yourself and the family for an ice cream treat or fast food. Nice park area across the street. May have to wait in line to order. It's another place we stop at in Buena Vista to make our visit complete.

I ordered the meatball sandwich which was deish minus the fact of queso cheese on top :( the double burger was great according to my friends and the ice cream and shakes looked amazing. The place is an establishment and been there since 1955(?) expect a line if you get there around major meal times and even if no line... More

Enjoyed a double cheeseburger with grilled onions, Large fries and drink at K's today in Buena Vista CO. It's located right on the main drag through town with a very nicely maintained city park adjacent to it which provides extra seating if you wish and more parking as well. Both inside and outside seating. Most opt for the outside. The... More

Great burgers and fries. Order at the window and they assign you a name for pickup. We were the Lone Ranger.

I was with a group that was finishing an 8 day backpacking trip in the mountains. We had passed this place on our way to the mountains and saw the line was insane, which of course means it must be good. We were anxious to get back in to town to try this place. Divine burgers and milkshakes! Highly recommend... More

Enjoyed a much needed burger, fries, and delicious shake at K's after a long week of backpacking!! On a nice day with the park next door it's hard to beat!
