Memories for our elderly

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... read 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.

I remember going to Dairy Kream as a toddler with my grandparents after church many years ago. We would always get a burger and shake. After my last visit back home I am surprised nothing has changed much. The shakes are still awesome and so are their burgers! We need more places like Dairy Kream

The Dairy Kream is simply an old drive-in type place that is disappearing from the American landscape. However, if the crowd I encountered here is any indication, this place will be around for a while. This is is no way the cleanest, most modern place, nor is it haute cuisine. You can probably even find a better milkshake, though mine... More

Love love love this place! Affordable, good value, and great food! They have the best ice cream and milkshakes! Always busy, even in the winter months.

The staff is always friendly but this is a mom and pop type of establishment. Handling dirty money then handling food item, ice cream cones, open straws, etc with the same bare hands is just gross not to mention rubbing noses and counting money with spit wet fingers. Lost my appetite and left

This place has been in East Tupelo for years. It is always busy, even during the winter with people buying soft serve icecream. The portions are generous, taste is great and the price reasonable.

The banana shake is the most amazing thing you will ever experience. If you want a place that has hometown atmosphere and decent prices on delicious sweet treats or burgers, this is the place to go!

You can still get butterscotch shakes here. They're my favorite. There are not many places that still offer them, so that is important to me.
