Dairy King offers soft and hard ice cream, all the fixings including hot fudge, 60's music, and friendly, smiling folks. What's not to like?

Walked to this place for evening ice cream. Had a wide range of things to order. Everything we got was awesome! Was playing Elvis Presley music on outside speakers, put everybody in a good mood. Friendly staff and good service.

Given all the other ice cream shops in town have the "tourist prices", it was nice to be able to stop and get an ice cream cone for a "normal" price. Our favorite cones are twist cones, and that's exactly what we had. Very good. They also have a full food menu, but at the time we only "needed" ice... More

Stopped for soft ice cream cones and they were great. Just like we used to get as kids from Mr. Softee!

Stopped by after a lecture that was held in Rocky Mountain National Park, for ice-cream. I love good ice-cream, and this is GREAT ice-cream. In fact, I spent three days in Grand Lake, and stopped there every night for ice-cream. They had a nice assortment of flavors, and I truly enjoyed each new one I tried. The staff were great,...

This is a treasure - I don't think it has changed since opening in 1953. We had soft serve ice cream which comes in vanilla, chocolate and twist. It was very tasty. They also have a good selection of hard ice creams, old-fashioned sundays and other fast food. Great prices, no frills and the ice cream was worth the stop.

Operating since 1953, Dairy King serves both regular and soft-serve ice cream, as well as other fast food. We each ordered a soft-serve cone and it was delicious. A classic place to visit.
