Excellent burgers!

Stopped by on our way to hill country. Everything is made to order. We had burgers - great burgers and bigger than expected. Fried okra is very good, too. We didn't have to wait very long for our food. Prices are very reasonable.

Some how this odd joint works. Drive through is a wait - its not fast food. You have to wait in your car around the corner. The prices are RETRO as in too good to believe. All food is fresh and delicious. I have never had anything on the menu except a burger because I cannot pass up a real... More

The burgers are all great. I live the fried okra too. Shakes are thick. Prices are hard to beat. Just don't be in a hurry. They cook food fresh for your order and it will take time. Inside is a throwback to 1970s.

I'm not a huge burger fan, but wow! This place is great. If you are in Brenham, this is a DO NOT MISS. I love to go through the drive-thru and drive out to a scenic spot to just eat in peace. The sweet potato fries are spot-on. SO much better than Chili's.

If you want a made to order fresh burger, the Dairy Bar is the place to go. Paired with crinkle fries and a large soda, it's a great meal. Friendly service in the drive thru or dine in. the burgers are thick and juicy.

ALL the locals come here. When we first moved to Brenham, we were told by born-and-raised-here folks that Dairy Bar is THE place for hamburgers. And they're right!

If you're driving through Brenham and have a hankering for a shake or malt - be sure to stop at the Dairy Bar. Located in an unassuming building (probably a former Dairy Queen?) just off 290 on Stringer St, the Dairy Bar is frequented by locals...which says something as there are plenty of new fast food restaurants on 290 that...

The service was extremely slow. They ran out of onion rings; then they ran out of buns. Our chili cheeseburgers tasted like ground beef sandwiches with grease. The bread was so soggy it fell apart. Then, we decided to try the milkshakes, which were thin and runny. Then , they ran out of beef.
