Famous Footers and shakes

This is a landmark in Portsmouth. Everyone who lived in Portsmouth has visited the Dari-Creme and they are known across the country for their generous portions of food. They are always busy so it may take a few minutes to get your food. If you like sauce, mustard and onion on your footer, the... read more

If you like foot long hotdogs, or footers as their called in that region, with chili than this is the place for you. I don't see very many places like this anymore so visiting 2nd Street Dari-Crème is nostalgic to me. Every time we visit family in northeast Ky/south-central Ohio we stop by here at least once. Their ice cream... More

This is like a road side ice cream stand. Walk up windows, no seating. Many of the customers ordered ice cream to eat in their cars. All we got were small dipped cones, but the prices are really reasonable, and the teenagers working were friendly!

For a hot dog place it wasn't bad. Definitely a place to go for cheap food I paid less than $12.00 for three adults; four foot-long hot dogs and 3 slushies. The price was right, the dogs were covered with their sauce or whatever you chose to have put on them. The biggest problem was the service; confusing. People milled... More

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.

I don't think the Dari-Creme has change since it's original opening. We stopped here for a "Footer" that my wife used to get when she was a child on her visits to Portsmouth with her family. The sauce is what makes this hot dog good. She got a footer with sauce, and I got one without. Mine without ,was pretty... More

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
