I enjoy eating at this restaurant and the food is good. I have tried a few different meals/hamburgers and the food is good. It reminds me of the 60's style restaurant. Must stop in if you have not been there!

Driving through on vacation, my husband and I stopped for lunch. We had 1/3 pound burgers, curly fries and coke. Loved the idea of fresh daily ground chuck,. The burgers were so salty it took away from the wonderful beefy flavor. I'm hoping the chef accidentally had a heavy hand with salt on our 2 burgers only. Lettuce and onions... More

Hello CindyARobin, Thank you for choosing the Dairy Palace Restaurant. We do cut and grind fresh beef chuck for all our hamburgers. We do add seasonings, including salt. We use the same recipe as we have for over 25 years. Possibly your patties did not get all the seasonings thoroughly mixed. I wish that you would have notified the manager... More

The Dairy Palace is amazing! A must stop if you're going through Canton! The menu of a standard American fast food, but if your grandmother was cooking it from scratch! So good! They also have several flavors of Blue Bell ice cream available by the scoop. A true Texas Treasure!

Was so happy to happen across this place that not only had locally sourced Bison burgers, but lettuce wrapped it for me too. The bacon was thick and cooked perfect and the fries were from fresh cut as well. Great fresh ice tea and friendly servers. Busy place with locals even in the middle of the afternoon. We will be...

My daughter suggested we stop because this is one of the best burger places in the area. We had just driven in from Marshall and it was dinner time so we stopped. It didn't disappoint, the burger was yummy! I had their famous iced tea and it was fresh brewed, hit the spot. If you get an opportunity to stop... More

Expected a small burger menu. Nope! Lots of exotic meats. Also had a huge variety of ice cream and toppings. Lots of the typical Texas favorites. Have to go back and try the Boar burger. Tots looked like the bomb, but I passed.

I'd like to start off by saying that we did go on the Sunday before 4th of July and the first Monday of the month. I'm assuming this played a part in the ridiculous line to order. Although the line was long, it went relatively fast. The staff taking my order was very nice and patient with me while I... More
