I've been there twice and they got my order wrong both times. I do not stutter. If you get take-out from this place, check to make sure you have got what you ordered before you leave. At least their drink prices are competitive with Sonic.

While searching for a local business we happened across the Dairy-Ette. Owning an ice cream shop myself, we had to try it. A step back in time, with car hops, red and white vinyl booths and stools.Home made root beer in frosted glass mugs. Sundeas in heavy glassware. Excellent. Great burgers and a good value. The place is dated, so... More

The Dairyette has been around since the 1950's and the place looks like VERY little has changed in those years. It is small and funky, but that is part of its charm. It still offers drive up food service to this day. Once you get seated and order, you will be glad you went. The burgers and fries are great!... More

My wife of 40 years grew up in East Dallas and went to Dairy-Ette when she was in high school. It's been around for a while and the best thing about it is, nothing much has changed. They don't serve a fancy burger like Twisted Root or Stack House, just a very old-fashioned blue-collar burger with just the right amount... More

Dairy-Ette has some great burgers.... double meat, fresh bun. We discussed why the meat is so tasty on this visit, and decided they use a hot grill which gives a good char to the patties. Very fresh vegetables like lettuce and tomato. Ice cream float with root beer is like what I had as kid. Very small, but very friendly... More

And it is so yummy! We have been coming her since I was a kid. It seems as if nothing has changed. Frosted mug root beer is my favorite! Their hamburgers are good and made to order. But remember to only park under the awning if you are going to need a car hop! Fun place to sit in your... More

My order was incomplete. I was charged two times for the same order. Staff refused to correct the problem. Staff members were using profanity to one another. The only thing that was pleasing was the music playing in the background. I will not go back. There's better burger joints.

because you ARE in a 50s place! It's like time stood still at the Dairy-ette! If you want so old-fashion burgers, great root beer in a frost mug and so great service, head over there right now! The root beer floats are great too!

As a local, I can tell you that this place is worth a visit. The hamburgers are great, the fries are just ok, but what really makes my mouth water are the root beer floats. Homemade vanilla soft serve and homemade root beer team up to make a creamy, easy drinking, and delicious float. Floats are served in frozen glass... More
