Great place for ice cream - mmmmm....

We stop here nearly every night for ice cream when we are in Columbus (during Texas Antique Week). The staff is super friendly and they dish out HUGE cones of Blue Bell ice cream. They serve hamburgers, tacos, etc. as well, but we mainly come for the ice cream. mmmmmm......

really, an ice cream place with only vanilla soft serve, only one size, no dip, no sprinkles, cake cone. Don't bother coming here if what you want is soft serve.

Possible the BEST hand made and fresh cooked to order 'burger we've had in a long time. Moist and flavorful. Lettuce, Tomato, Mayo and pickles all came on it, we added ketchup. The single for my wife and the double for me. Wow. We added fries and onion rings. Typical food service out of a bag and dumped into the... More

I lived in Ctown 14yrs and Dairy Cone is a place i loved the most. Next to Los Cobos, but what you should get is their bacon burgers with cheese. My Favorite!!!! Got it before EVERY football game with my homie Tyler Brod back in 8th grade.

They have had their hamburgers rated the best in town several times and many locals pick this as their go to place when in the mood for burgers. Their onion rings are great and sodas are really good. I love the hand dipped Blue Bell Ice Cream.

The Dairy Cone in Columbus is a must stop! It reminded me of the dairy marts around central Texas when I was a kid. The friendly, fast service is top notch. We just went through the drive-thru passing through Columbus but will def go back to try some of their high recommended, old time favorites. The root-beer frosty is a... More

On our way back from a recent road trip we decided to take the scenic route from San Antonio to Houston on US 90. We came upon the Dairy Cone in Columbus and had gotten some good reviews on this place so we stopped by for lunch. Walking up to the outside window to place our order brought back many... More

The family owned Dairy Cone is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. The Hamburgers and cheeseburgers are great but I like to also throw in a shrimp basket, taco salad, or BBQ baked potato to switch things up. Of course Blue Bell icecream is a must.
