Great burgers and really good hot dogs. Quick, friendly service. Cooked to order, served fresh and piping hot. This is not a frozen, processed patty but fresh. I like it .

We were in the area and stopped in for a burger and rings. Pretty good stuff. Huge drinks with free refills. Eat in or walk up window. Cute memorabilia and checkered curtains. The place was packed and the ice cream cones seemed to be the hit of the afternoon.

I never go to Union without stopping by the Dairi-O. They make everything from scratch and it shows in the taste. I have never been disappointed in anything I have ordered. It is a very clean, the staff very attentive. Don't miss out on this experience.

We have family on this end of the state and pass through Union regularly. If we are in town on Saturday, Dairo-O is always discussed as lunch option. We recently ate here and food was excellent. I had two hot dogs and my wife had a bologna sandwich which she loved. We shared a large fry. Both had sweet tea.... More

As a previous review said don't order a double unless your really hungry. Also with a name you would expect delicious shakes and... More
