The Dairy-ette Review


9785 Ferguson Rd  Dallas, TX 75228     (214) 327-9983

Keep your eyes open when heading to the Dairy-ette.  It’s a small place that we actually missed the first time we passed it.  We quickly turned around and are so glad we did.

A trip to the Dairy-ette is like traveling back in time.  The history of the Dairy-ette began when a husband and wife team, Ed and Andy Prikryl, opened for business in October of 1956.  This original 50’s diner makes the freshest REAL French fries, homemade root beer (served in a frosty mug!!) and some of the best burgers you’ll find in the Dallas area. 


I can’t even begin to tell you how yummy this is!!  Very creamy and smooth. 

If you’d like, you can eat in your car, under the red and white awning, where a friendly carhop will bring your food to you. 


Or you can do like we did and go inside and sit in one of their comfy booths.


Or you can even choose to sit at the counter.


Whatever you decide just prepare yourself and your tummy for a real treat.

They still have the original soda fountain, cash register, car hop trays and their famous root beer keg.  This is so cool because it holds the home made root beer AND it says Coca-Cola on it!  Bonus!


What would you like to try?


I chose the burger and fries. 


It was really good.  Had a tad too much mustard but I consider that my fault as I did not specify “easy on the mustard”.  Now about the fries. 


Fries are a funny thing that many people have strong opinions on.  Do you have a favorite fry?  Some folks swear by crinkle cut fries.  Others say the hearty steak fry is definitely the best.  You also have the die-hard McD’s French fry fans…of which I am one.  How did these fries compare?  The only difference really, to me, were that they were a bit greasier.  Which is not necessarily a bad thing.  You need to go and try them and tell me what you think.
