Always good food, real hamburgers not the typical drive-thru burger. Try the "fancy burrito", you'll be addicted.

The best burger you'll ever have. Great food. Great prices. On of the boys I used to nanny for calls it "the paradise of burgers". Kids don't lie.

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.

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.
