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

Folks pleasant that worked there as well as the customers. Food was good. They are know as the best hamburger in town and I have to agree. The hamburg bun is toasted which is different for a place to eat. The meat actually looked like...it was made, not a pre-made paddy. It was absolutely delicious.More

We stopped by late at night on a Friday night. Please note they are not open 24 hours any longer due to being short staffed. They now close at midnight. I had the catfish and my boyfriend had the grilled flounder. I will say this...is not the place to try and eat healthy. He said his fish was disgusting. My catfish was good but it was fried so again not healthy. This will not stop me from returning in the future.More

Dinners are not fast food here, but the reasonable wait for them to freshly prepare our food was well worth it. We got two hamburger steak dinners with salads and onion rings. Steaks were smothered in onions and came with a bowl of gravy. The...first bite was absolutely delicious. So were bites two thru ten. Onion rings were superb. Wife got a black walnut milkshake made with Blue Bell ice cream. We had to get a to-go box to take the leftovers. I can't throw out food this good.More

One of the best breakfast sandwiches I’ve ever had. Very convenient location, has a drive-thru, and plenty of parking. The prices are great, as well. 10/10

This place always seems busy and our hotel clerk recommend it for breakfast so we stopped in the next day for some grub. You walk in and place your order at the counter and give your name and the food will be brought out to...you. The food came out within a reasonable time and staff was friendly and attentive. Wife had a regular 2 egg breakfast with hash browns, bacon and side of gravy (gravy was excellent) I had the the omelet with sausage, ham, bell peppers and cheese with a side of hash browns as well. I didn’t care to much for the omelet as it just the meats and peppers inside with sliced cheese on it which I didn’t care for. Everything thing was good.More

We loved it! We saw the green awning building from the gas station next door. Who can resist a restaurant with artsy “trimmings” and bold sign “HAMBURGERS ”? We were hungry. Our meals were well prepared and the patty melt was delicious. The coleslaw and...onion rings were too. There was a trainee at the cash register. It wasn’t zippy service but a great break from rainy day driving. Just off the interstate 20. I repeat”LOVED the food and ambiance and tidy restrooms!!” Americana at its best.More

Good some of the time, better hit and miss than McDonald's. The line is a mess ALWAYS and many times unneeded , Up side is the large menu but the food quality has gone way down in just a year. 24 hours is an upside...but the wait is bad if you're hungry. It's a last resort place but the staff is friendly and that kinda makes up for the other issues.More

Went twice for to go orders. First tim3the forgot the salad with my order. Oddly enough they sent my dressing. No big deal, second time I called in my order. I arrived 20 minutes later, not ready yet. I see several orders in bags waiting...for pick up. So after 30 minutes, I asked if one of those was mine. Two different employees checked, not there. After 45 minutes of waiting I asked another employee to check on my order. He found it sitting there with the food I was originally asking about. So I guess the first two couldn't read. So I was waiting there for 45 minutes on an order that was ready the whole time. I told them it was probably cold now. They just said it has been in a really warm spot, it should be ok. Overall, food was good. Customer service was beyond poor. A bit pricey for the crappy service too. Nothing like cool soggy fries to go with a dried out burger.More

We were passing through town and decided to take a chance after seeing other reviews. We were absolutely thrilled with the food. The burgers were amazing as were the sides. We took a hand pie for the road and it was fantastic. The customer service...was top-notch. My only complaint is the bathroom. The woman’s bathroom is TINY and not handicap accessible. If that doesn’t matter to you then you should go ahead and eat here!More
