Operating since 1953, Dairy King serves both regular and soft-serve ice cream, as well as other fast food. We each ordered a soft-serve cone and it was delicious. A classic place to visit.

This simple shop offers a variety of sandwiches, but the stand-out is the ice cream. I selected this for my once-a-year banana split. Good choice. Big, tasty and worth every bite. While the order counter is a walk-up, there is indoor and outdoor seating.

Small window service place. Friendly staff and service with a smile. Tastes just like dairy queen. Yummy cones served fast.
