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 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.

Best fast food burger ever. You have to get off I-10 to get here - but it's worth it. Take business 71 exit and head into columbus. Go right on Walnut (hwy90) and dairy cone is about 1 block down on left (just past shamrock). Trust me - great hamburger!
