Great sandwiches and dairy products. But most of all..........the footers are the best anywhere. Get them with sauce and onions, they are great. Been going there for at least 40 years. Hope it never changes.

My classmates enjoyed the rest of the ice cream; milkshakes, vanilla cones, etc. I however had the scooped hard pack chocolate. it was really grainy. It was okay for a quick stop on the way back to the university.

Having made a long trip to this neck of the proverbial woods to visit family, my wife and I decided to go to Dari-Creme for dessert. We would be providing dessert for the family. We bought five milkshakes and didn't break the bank. We choose this place for dessert whenever we are in town for three reasons: 1. High yum... More

Got the footer with sauce and potato munchers with a strawberry shake. It was amazing! I will go back again next time I am in town.

Been going to this dairy bar for over 30 years. One of the cheapest places to buy a milkshake or a ice cream on a cone. Thi is the place to frequent if you are pinching pennies. However the atmosphere is horrible and the cleanliness of the place is questionable.
