“Just do shakes”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

An icon of the area. The burgers were small and only average. I would suggest skipping them entirely and just go for the shakes. My wife had chocolate and I had strawberry, both excellent!

“Iconic but lacking in service and quality”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

K's is well-known to Buena Vista tourists and visitors. I like the use of celebrity names for tourists and the posted quotes on the wall. Yet, the service from the teenagers working the counter is abysmal, and the food is not very good. It's all from Sysco or another company, frozen and flash fried. Shakes are still good.

“Not a fan”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We checked this place out based on the line out the door and a quick check on the Trip Advisor app to see what people were saying. Wish we would have tried somewhere else. I don't see what the big deal is. The food seemed like just regular ammonia laced Cisco food products served on white buns. You honestly can just get the same type of food from any fast food restaurant. Yeah it's cool that they give you the name of a celebrity when you order...but other than that...it wasn't worth the tummy ache afterwards.
One plus was the park right next door where we could sit and eat and let the kids stretch their legs a bit. But next time we'll just pick up food from the grocery store and let them play while they eat.

“Beware what you are served.”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Beware. Very busy at lunch. Staff under pressure. Boss not to be seen.Our burgers were charred but raw inside. Not rare. Raw. Fried "chicken" was a composite loaf thing with the taste of tofu. Staff claimed they serve all burgers medium rare which is hard to believe for health reasons. Rather, it seems the attitude is "you're a tourist, we'll probably never see you again so move along and let us rush people through the line". Beware.

“Good old-fashioned burger place”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Stopped here after rafting. Fries and onion rings smelled great but I went for a sundae - tasted great. A bus had pulled up so the place was swamped but the staff was friendly and got our stuff out pretty quick.

It's not a diner. Not a cafe. It's meant to be one of those pick-your-food-up-at-the-window and go eat it on the sidewalk/over in the park kind of places.
