They have just changed owners. The shakes are better than the former owners had made. They seem to have a wide variety of food and I noticed specials on the marquis.

This is an old fashioned ice cream drive in. The food is good home cooked. They make while you wait, nothing is sitting around waiting for you. Hamburgers, Hot dogs, Brats, Pork tenderloin. The ice cream creations are plentiful and delicious. Their prices are also great. They also don't skimp on the portions.

We took our kids here back when it was Dairy Ripple. Decided to visit with our grandsons. The smoothy was very good, dairy free as we requested, but very pricey. It tasted exactly like eating a peach though. The famous ice cream cone with "eyes" was a hit with my grandson as it was for his Mom when she was... More

Dairy Dogs is a neat little place. Good sized parking lot which wraps around the building; a few picnic tables on the back side in a grassy area and out front about 6 metal tables/chair combo where you can simply relax with your family or friends. We have had their hot food before and found it good. This night we... More
