Live 2/3/5 game $1k effective. Overplay?

This hand is from a live 2/3/5 9-handed game in the Bay Area. The current hand has been straddled to $10 and effective stacks are $1000. Villain in the hand is your average bad 2/3/5 player who calls a bit much but I haven't seen him get out of line much with raising.

Preflop (Pot size: 0)
BTN posts 2

Flop (Pot size: 137) [Q♣︎9♠︎5♠︎]]

River (Pot size: 877) [3♦︎]]

Summary (Pot size: 2,057)
SB shows ??
Hero shows [K♣︎Q♠︎]]

TBH the flop re-raise was a bit out of character and the turn and river lack of aggression really through me off. Should I be going for maximum value here or should I try and pot control after the flop re-raise? Thoughts on turn and river sizing?
