Tupelo Favorite

Dairy Kream has been in the same location for what seems like forever. They make good old fashioned hamburgers, shakes and fries. Make sure to bring cash though cause that's the only way that you can pay. With their reasonable prices, it doesn't take much.

This is an ice cream place. They serve food, too, but we didn't try that. We were there for the ice cream. I had a shake. My husband had a cone. Both were very good. We enjoyed the ice cream and the people watching-- everyone comes here, it seems.

Every time I come to Tupelo to visit family I make time to stop here and get a milkshake. They are so smooth and unlike other places, the milkshakes don't clog your straw up making you wait until it melts. This place hasn't changed a bit in the 20 odd years I have been going and I hope it stays... More

Great ice cream, awesome prices. This place has been around for many years and hope it continues to serve in the furture. My kids love the vanilla chocolate dip cone! Also offers burgers and other foods to enjoy. Only thing I noticed was the lack of napkins they give you. There should be some offerd at the sitting tables, but... More

Some of the BEST & CREAMIEST soft serve ice cream in the south!! It's a little drive-in that offers a variety of items on the menu. We tried the ice cream as we had heard it was some of the best.....and it was!!!

We stopped off here and got milkshakes and ice creams. Very yummy at a reasonable price too! Staff weren't too friendly but we had an overall good experience here.

This place reminds me of what made America great. They have not changed a single thing to accommodate the changing times and that is good. The food is excellent and the shakes are great. It is simple and plain. The way it should be.

At Avon Lea here in Tupelo, a resident could barely explain her memories of dairy Kreme. My wish is that some giving soul may deem possible for an ice creame party at Avon Lea. I simply don't have the funds for such but it would be nice for a business that has relied so much on our elderly to give... More

This place although I didn't get to go to this trip, is usually one of my fav places when I'm back in Tupelo. We used to go here when the ice cream was 10 cents a cone. It's still in business in the same location and had a crowd every single time we passed by there, And it was chilly... More

The ice creamery that you remember as a child. Great drive up ice creamery that offers outdoor seating under the front awning. No indoor seating. Great hand dipped ice cream cones, malts, milkshakes and the like. Too, have great burgers and fries. A must stop on a 100 degree day while in east Tupelo visiting Elvis's birthplace.
