Great Shakes

Despite the blue bell ice cream shortage, the shakes are still very good. The wait was reasonable and staff friendly.

I normally don't do reviews close together, but I just have to say again dairy palace met my exceptionally high standards. The best old fashioned cheeseburger in the country, IMO. Cooked fresh to order, with a unique, old school flavor that no one else can touch. Ignore the naysayers; dairy palace knows what a REAL burger is supposed to taste... More

Good morning 782darleneb. The Blue Bell Creameries shut down has been somewhat an issue for the Dairy Palace Restaurant of Canton. We have temporarily brought in another brand of ice cream so that our Customers can still enjoy an ice cream dessert. We eagerly await Blue Bell's return, which should be toward summer's end. Thank you for choosing the Dairy... More

First of all, I'm surprised to read the couple of harsh negative reviews of The Dairy Palace. But, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Now, here's mine. Dairy Palace is a 24/7 Texas burger paradise. I've been eating here for 23 yrs, and have never been disappointed. Their burgers are made fresh to order, and are available in a variety... More

All the hype about it being world famous, really??? The food was over cooked, staff was rude and didn't get order correct, and it was dirty. What is it famous for? Being the worst.

By old fashioned I mean perfectly cooked beef, topped with good old fashioned iceberg lettuce, good and ripe slicing tomato, freshly cut onion, and some good old fashioned yellow mustard, and I always get it topped...
