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

This is a fun place an old 50 's drive in, with both car side service and tables and counter inside. Not the prettiest by any means, but who cares the root beer is home made, the fries are some of the best in Dallas, and the double burger with chili, onions, cheese and mustard is to die for. Really... More

For a long time, I have been on a quest to find the best rootbeer. I'm not sure if the Dairy-ette has THE best rootbeer or not, but it sure is good. Served ice cold in a frosty mug with a damn good burger. I've googled "best burger in Dallas" a couple of times and the Dairy-ette always seems to... More

The address says Dallas, but the surrounding does not like Dallas. it is an old neighborhood and an old establishment (since 1956). I was a tourist in Dallas and local friends took me there. They claim the place did not change for decays. We had a root beer (home made) and fries (freshly cut) but I could smells the greasy... More

We visited this place on a recommendation, and were not disappointed. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was fantastic - simple, but made fresh and hot. And the fries were amazing! I will certainly be returning, and telling others about this classic lil' diner.

You see the sign, assess the exterior and decide to drive on. You'd be wrong! Best root beer floats I've ever had! Fantastic burgers made the old fashioned way. So good, you'll come back!
