I love Dairy Depot ! I just can't say enough about it ! The prices are very reasonable for starters ! Eating there takes me back to the days when I was a child. The shakes are thick and creamy,the hamburgers are scrumptious and the footlong Coneys are just like the one's I got as as a kid ! I... More

Good neighborhood 70s style ice cream with awesome ice creams and just average food. Come for the ice cream since they are all great and tasty: shakes, cones, swirls,flurries… Lots of parking space around so it is easy to get and stop. Fantastic and nice staff. Unfortunately hot dogs and burgers are in the downside though… So better come here... More

Neighborhood Favorite ! EZ to walk to or drive to- Try the small mini-slider's. Tastes like White Castle's. Very nice staff and family owned local business person.

I've been to the Depot more times than I can count, and in my opinion the customer service has been on a downward spiral. The staff used to be fantastic, and so sweet! In recent years I have gotten rude remarks, dirty looks, and even rolled eyes. Granted, tonight I did get there an hour before they closed so it's... More

This is your typical 1970s style I've cream stand with greasy fried food. I will say we only went for ice cream and this place is great, no to sure about the greasy smelling food but the soft serv is good. One drawback is limited parking.

The ice cream was exactly what I expected... Regular soft serve ice cream. Nothing special but my son did like the orange swirl. When you pull up in the parking lot you will have an idea of what you will get and that's exactly what we got. We didn't try any food though so maybe that would change things.

I recommend the orange and vanilla swirl cone as well as the small peanut butter and fudge sundae. The buckeye sundae is a winner as well! Great covered area perfect for rainy day ice cream.

The girls working here were really sweet. They put little candy eyes on my wife's icecream cone, and dipped my oversize cone in the butterscotch, even though it wouldn't all fit. This reminded me of the little icecream places of my childhood. It was quaint and the folks were really friendly. Also, it should go without saying, but the icecream... More

Good neighborhood ice cream stand with pretty decent food. Growing up right around the corner I have seen it keep pace with the times but they have remained fairly consistent with the charter of the original owners: do what you do well. Always busy after a Little League baseball game, win or lose. Personally enjoyable that my children (now grown)... More
