This little hole in the wall is full of good people and delicious burgers. You can come by any evening of the week and you'll find the locals enjoying juicy hand made beef burgers. They'll even grill the onions when asked. I can't vouch for any other of their products as I only stop by for their burgers (and their... More

Love getting cheeseburgers and fries here. They are always tasty since they make their own patties daily. The shrimp plate is very good too the shrimp are big and the homemade dressing is a delight. A good bargain for your money. And don't forget to get a Bluebell shake!!

This is my favorite place to get a hamburger!! It is a must stop. From I-10 take the old HWY 90 road and enjoy a scenic drive across the Colorado River and pass the old courthouse square. Dairy Cone is just a block or so from there. It's like an old car hop. Reminds me of when I was a... More

This is a family owned fast food place. It has been around for approximately 50 years. The chicken strips are great. They are made with real chicken. Everyone loves the hamburgers. It is not a dine in restaurant. There are some tables outside, but most locals either eat in their car or take it home. You will see doctors, and... More

One of the best burgers in town. Made fresh to order. Very quick friendly service. And the prices are small town prices making it very reasonable.

This is my favorite place to eat burgers! I literally plan my trips to the Hill Country around stopping for a burger here! I only wish I lived closer so I could eat here more often. The patties are freshly made not frozen. Mouth watering good!!

I go there mainly for their hamburgers, a bit more in price but well worth it......made fresh as you watch and just the way you want it. I've heard raves about their baked potatoes, plan to try those soon.

Was by Tuesady night and not unlike the Dairy Treet in Victoria you are stepping back in time. Liked the burger & the Sprite frostie. Am trying to stay away from fried foods so dunno on the fries. You can eat in your car or there are a couple of picnic tables available. My recommendation is to pull off the... More

I called in a Cheeseburger, FF, and chocolate shake on my way home after a long day in a meeting. It's was hot and ready when I arrived. The cooks did a great job as always, I have eaten here many times over the years. The shake was of perfect consistency and tasty. The window server was quick, friendly and... More

We stopped in this little town between Houston and Austin for a bite to eat. This little place is busy at 7:30 on a Thursday night. The rest of the town is rolled up for bed, but several people were coming to the Dairy Cone as we waited for the 10 minutes to prepare our $3.95 hamburgers. These were the... More
