Take your foot off the gas, get off the high horse, and step back to enjoy simple food, prepared well, and at low prices. Burgers, sandwiches, fires, rings, and especially shakes - all prepared on the spot. The only seating is on covered picnic benches or your car, but that's not why you stop at King Kone; you stop for... More

Stopped for a cone ordering a medium. Lots of luck!! This thing cam out at least 9"tall resulting in a balancing act to get back to the car. Stay with the small!! It was a good soft serve and plenty of it for a very reasonable price. They as well offer sandiches, hot dogs etc and look to do a... More

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
