My husband and I have had sandwiches and hamburgers there and they are okay but we really love their pizza. We have ordered it as a take out several times. The crust is especially good.

This place is right on our frequently traveled route, so Mimi has seen our daughter grow up! It's got the best pizza I've had since leaving new England and I've tried many. Service is friendly and the food and ice cream are great!

The food is great, but expensive for a greasy spoon drive through. Corndog, 2 burgers, shake, and onionrings=$21

The pizza was delicious! The crust is great. Sat outside in patio area and had dessert after. For dessert my husband and I shared a banana split and a pineapple sundae, because we could not make up our minds, both where amazing! Highly recommend.

We happened by Mimi's Dairy O on our drive through town and decided to stop for ice cream. The selection of frozen treats is huge! Soft serve, hand-scooped, banana splits, "blizzard" type treats and more. My husband was hungy so he also ordered a made-to-order...More
