Our first time eating here. Hotdogs good. Ice cream was amazing! Lots of selections. I got the butterscotch dipped cone. Amazing. They also have Cherry and chocolate dipped. Nice picnic tables to eat at.

Everything here is amazing! The walking tacos are delicious! I love that you can put whatever you want in your own custom-made blizzards. The pineapple ice cream is also really good!

The soft serve is a tradition for our grandkids. The small cone is pretty large and it is a fun place to sit and watch folks. Several were dipped in chocolate and looked great. They only take cash.

We love going to the Dairy Kastle for chili cheese dogs, malted milk shakes, sundaes and soft serve ice cream. It was the best way to spend the last day of summer before going back to school! There is outdoor seating, but it's uncovered and...More
