Best burgers in town

Dairy Palace has great burgers! They are always hot and fresh! I don't care for the Telmex food, but you can't beat the burgers. They are pricy for a burger joint, but I can't say nothing negative about the burgers!.... And then.... Bluebell Ice cream!!! Yay!!!

Great burger and rings. Cashier was polite and helpful. Every empty table was dirty. Had to wipe off table. Manager checked on me while I was eating, told her about the tables. Was not addressed before I left. Restroom was filthy. Overall disappointing.

I had the cheese burger and fries which was all very good. My wife had the nachos and she says the meat had no flavor. The staff was very good. We would go back.... For the burgers

The bbq brisket sandwich and cheese sticks were delicious and plentiful. So plentiful, I couldn't get a run at the ice cream available for purchase. The wait was not long although the line was. I found it a wonderful experience and will definitely be a return customer and it is close to the First Monday monthly flea market.

I waited that all day for a hamburger for when I arrived at my destination of Canton, Texas. I was shocked at the cost but thought once I received my hamburger, it would be worth the money. I was really disappointed because my hamburger was cold and they slapped a piece of cheese on it that was not melted..... it... More

Hi Adriene B, I'm disappointed that your hamburger was unsatisfactory. The Cooks have been instructed how to melt cheese on hamburger patties as well as the other meats we serve. They have also been instructed not to use cold meat, and to cook patties per order UNLESS there is a large volume of customers in line like for lunch or... More

fantastic array of non-grocery store blue bell ice cream flavors PLUS phenomenal catfish burger and so many other things we didn't have the appetite to order. Staff was exceptional - incl the clean up guy who offered to check the mens room to see if my husband (who was getting his coat from the car) ws in there. Loved it.
