We love dairy bars and this place serves up great food, it is fun to order food from here, small and local and a walk up counter, feels like the old days. So much fun, you can dine outside.

I moved back to Benton and was very excited about finding the Dairy Bar on my way to look at a new home. I don't understand with all the rave reviews. Expensive for the quality and its milk water basically. Who says that's the best ice cream I've ever had?? And the cone had actually no flavor how do you... More

I grew up living half a mile from the Dairy Bar. We absolutely adore this little dive. Their vanilla milkshakes are the best I have ever tasted, and their tater tots are the only ones I eat. Everything is always hot, fresh, and reasonably priced. Every time I come home, I indulge in the Dairy Bar.

It's got the perfect greasiness of an old-fashioned diner---and you know you want that on occasion.Skip the fries -- they are frozen, crinkly ones. Really good ice cream.

Hamburgers where great. Shakes wonderful, fries ok. Love eating there when not in a hurry, and sun is out.

This place offers similar fair to Sonic from what I can see. The service is friendly, but next time I will likely stop by the nearest Sonic.

All the locals go here. The burgers are fantastic. It is a throwback to a simpler time. There will probably be a line. Just wait it is worth it.
