Description

Dallas Observer's Description

East Dallas has a healthy dose of drive-in burger joints. Dairy-Ette, open since 1956, is just one of the fine examples of a bygone era frozen in time -- and neon. Here, care is not only given to the burgers but is also given to the thin, snap-in-your-mouth fries and homemade root beer (as in on location), done the same way since the cooks began flipping patties at Dairy-Ette. The fries, though unseasoned, are so revered customers skip the standard drive-in tater tots. Greasy cheeseburgers, club sandwiches and ice cream floats can also be consumed inside the restaurant on a backed counter stool or in a vinyl booth. Drive up for the car-side service or step inside for some kiss-my-grits short orders.
