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. I was taken there by my grandparents when I was younger. Always had the Black Cherry ice cream. Have not had that anywhere else since. IT WAS... More

The shake out front reminds me of Route 66 and family trips. There are lots of tables outside for family picinics, pet friendly. Order meals upfront and shakes or ice cream towards the back. The fries are wonderful. My hamburger was a little dry but compared favorably to the one I had paid $14 elsewhere. Next time, I'll have the... More

Great hotdogs! Good chili and they butter toast your buns! French fries and their RANCH are delicious! The KING location to us is the friendliest. People are nice and always speak as soon as you walk in. Food is just as good at other ones but we just like this location the best! Don't forget the ice cream!

We had read about the Dairi-O so since we were in the area, we drove a few extra miles to eat lunch and we were sure glad we did. The first thing you notice is a very nice, clean outside dining area. There are a couple of picnic tables under roofs. The grass is nicer than most yards. We walked... More

I love the hotdog comb. They toast the bun before they make your hotdogs. Yes you can get two hotdog's or just one. The tea is Southern Ice Tea.
