With 2 or 3 dozen big screens, Kite's is a great place to meet friends for drinks and food and for watching [multiple] sporting events simultaneously. Prices are reasonable and service is good. Downside is that bathrooms need a serious cleaning and makeover.

I'm clearly not a student, but I have one here in town which means I have money - something most students are short on. Also means I'm much more likely to tip. Service simply awful here. So many other choices, choose one.

Came with a large group (12+) and received great service. Our food came out super fast and was terrific.

We love college towns and this place came highly recommended by a former KSU golf coach. Nothing disappointed. Good cocktails (Pepsi products were a plus) and excellent burgers. Service was top notch too.

TV's everywhere and empty on a Saturday. I get that school is out, but ghost town. Service was perfunctory, nothing better. Burgers were good. Will try something else next time.
