Finally a visit to the World Famous Dairy Palace!

From the looks of the cars in the parking lot the whole weekend I was there I saw it was a popular spot! The food was great and the shake was delicious! They serve Texas special/famous Blue Bell ice cream...it was GREAT (sad they didn't have blackberry shakes!)

Service was great, very friendly! Food was good, there was a lot of it!! You get a free nail file and bumper sticker. Kids played a couple of video games. They had little flags in the food.

A lot of reviewers miss the point with Dairy Palace. Check out the menu, they cater for EVERYBODY! It has probably the most varied selection of meats in Canton of that I am sure, same with the delicious deserts.

We have a restaurant on the Mountain ourselves named Dodge City Dinner Theater and I still love to try other places to eat. Dairy Palace has all types of good food, good service, great ice cream and you will not be disappointed. I will return to eat there again when I get tired of our own food.
