Best milkshake ever

If you enjoy a milkshake then you must stop here, you won't be disappointed. Cherry, chocolate & strawberry shakes are the best.

My rating is based on a simple whim that was delightfully fulfilled. I wanted a vanilla soft serve cone. There are other ice cream joints nearby with fancy flavors but I wanted something simple. Awesome soft serve. I had vanilla, the husband had chocolate and we were both pleased. If you're craving a simple soft serve cone, Dairy King is... More

We were tired after a day of hiking and stopped here for some sandwiches to go. The service was quick and the food good. Just what we needed!

Milkshakes were delicious. I had the cherry flavored shake , it was thick and creamy. Would recommend Dairy King to anyone visiting Grand Lake.

My family stopped here for a late snack, was the only ice cream place open after 9 pm! We all got ice cream. Nice staff.

The ice cream is good but after all is ice cream. Not a big fan of the food there just because it doesn't look too clean... One of those places that need a fix up. Service was okay

This is the best place in town. There is outdoor seating where you can enjoy the sunshine while you eat your chili dog or philly steak sandwich. They have ice cream and hamburgers. How could you lose?

Stopped in for quick bite. Fried zucchini was great. I had a hot dog. My husband had a buffalo burger both good. Would not hesitate to stop again!

The Dairy King is the perfect small-town burger and ice cream stand--been there forever, loyal clientele, and like catnip for visitors to town. We're always looking for ice cream stands on our travels, and the Dairy King did not disappoint (well, maybe just a little--the soft-serve machine was broken, but luckily they have an extensive selection of excellent hard-scooped ice...

A classic mountain town burger stand. Where I'm from we have diners. In the west they have burger stands. This is a true classic one, exactly the way you would envision it. We like to stop here and have lunch with our dogs after a hike in the summer. Great place!
