Went through the drive thru tonight and ordered a burger, steak finger basket, steak sandwich and a chili dog. When we got the food home it was still warm and smelled great. We loved all the food and will be back soon.

The fried fish was dry and tasted like stale oil. The onions weren’t worth eating. Cole slaw was adequate. Thirty years ago it was excellent, but something has gone wrong. I think thrives on tourists that need never come back.More

After many yrs of grabbing a burger here; and having 3 not so good experiences, I had decided to stay clear of the burgers here for awhile. So, this visit I decided to sample their “supposedly” made in house chicken fried steak with breakfast. Served...with eggs, hash browns, toast or biscuits. First of all, I asked the lady at the counter, if this steak is homemade: She replied “Yes!”… If so, I need to commend the cook for cutting this piece of leather into a perfect circle. However, it’s clear this patty is pre-made: Not only from the shape, but the breading, texture, and taste. The patty is about 1/4” thick before breading: and the flavor just wasn’t there. Add to that, it was tougher than a Texas judge… Probably the worst example of an attempt at CFS I’ve ever tried. Then, the eggs were brought out medium instead of over easy, as ordered. They do serve you 2 biscuits: But they were dry and bland. Food gets a 1: and that’s being generous. Service was friendly… At one time I’m sure this place was one of Canton’s better burger options. And the mishaps from a few over-cooked burgers could be a couple of simple issues… But after what was served here as a breakfast option today, the recent puzzling issues seem to be self explanatory. If you’re looking for a fresh made from scratch breakfast, keep looking.More

There is nothing special about their menu, the restaurant itself is dingy and has a dirty feeling. The parking lot is always packed and I don't know why they are so popular. Much better food places around Canton.More

That’s their hook to pull you in! Whoever voted them worlds greatest needs to have their burger card revoked. It took forever to get through the line and when it finally arrived it was sub par. While everything was fresh it was very bland. Not...a lot of seasoning or flavor. Locals recommended JT’s downtown for burgers, but it was too late!More

Have been going to DP for years and had a bad experience. My wife found a hair in her food and discreetly brought it to the attention to the owner and he accused her of putting it there herself even though it was a long...blonde hair and she had dark brown hair because she ate most of it already. She then went back to another employee and they replaced it. The owner came to us and said I see you came back to get the food replaced and asked where we were from and we said that doesn’t matter. He continued to accuse her of putting the hair in the food so she started cussing him out and said he shouldn’t be playing Christian music since he’s a hypocrite. She threatened to turn into the health department and he told us never come back and he was calling the police on us. Very poor customer service especially for an owner of a business. This could’ve been handled and all would’ve been fine, but the owner insisted on escalating thing with his inflated ego. All this over a $4 baked potato and making a scene and losing us as customers. Not recommended to support a business like this and reason to believe the owner is racist and wonder if he would’ve acted differently if my wife was white. Days are numbered for Dairy Palace before they eventually meet their demise and that’s ashamed and they have some great employees and food normally good, but actions like this from a business owner shouldn’t be supported by customers. I’ve seen others that had complaints about this owner and also threatened to call the police on them too. So long Dairly Palace.More

From the signs and the exterior you would expect this to be a typical burger joint. No Way. Oh there are lots of burger made from every kind of critter you can imagine (and probably a few you can't) and from past visits they are...very good. On this trip we had a chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, gravy and a biscuit. Not the greatest CFS I've ever had but from a burger joint??? Excellent. Who could have expected that? The biscuit was more dinner roll than biscuit but I ate all of it and wanted more. The seven million flavors of hand dipped ice cream (I may have exaggerated that just a tad) was an unexpected bonus. Don't miss this place.More

On the way to Caddo Lake, we stopped off in Canton for a bite to eat. First sign we saw was for "Dairy Palace". We pulled up to their "World Famous Burgers" signage and went in to order. The have "Exotic" burgers...Venison, Elk, Smoked Duck,...Bison, Catfish, Wild Boar, Turkey and SPAM! We ordered Elk and Duck. The Elk was gamey and juicy. The Duck was pastrami-style slices of breast, smoked and moist. The buns were STANDOUT and both sandwiches with a housemade plum sauce! Fries were delicious, though, not crispy. 100% a must go to again location if in the area!More
