Visited this restaurant based on a local friends recommendation. We got the hot dogs all the way. Yummy! Totally different from northern hot dogs. We really enjoyed. Very fun & clean restaurant. Don't forget the best part-- dessert-- ice cream!!! Yummy!

I have never eaten anything at Dairi-O that wasn't good. The fries are always piping hot and the hotdogs are delicious. The burgers are great too, in addition to the vast selection of ice cream.

Local favorite that has been a family business for years. Always a treat to have a meal at the Dairi-O. Great prices and you can't beat the hot dog special.

This is the only place to go when you want a hotdog or burger. Their ice cream is the perfect ending to a great meal.

I last went here about 40 years ago when it was called something else. Was invited by a friend while in town. The burgers are very good, however they are a bit pricey.

They have a large variety of ice cream and I got the smores and it was very yummy. Hubby got the cherry and that was good too. Love their fires and burger was good too. Enjoy on a budget.
