We turned off to Grand Lake with the thought of finding a small tempting snack. Maybe a couple of fries and a drink to sip, not much, just a little for the drive. Then we saw the Dairy King, a grand old seasonal snackbar from 1953. Looking at the menu we decided to split a cheeseburger, onion-rings and a large vanilla malt, ordered a corn-dog before we finished the meal. Good thing we didn't show up hungry.
I loved it when the friendly people said it would take 8 minutes to cook our order!
I don't mind waiting for hot fresh good food. I don't need my order in under 30 seconds.
Too many places want to serve half cooked fries just so you can have it fast.
Thank you for taking the time to do it right.
We started planning our return visit to the Dairy King before we finished our meal, that started out to be just a lite snack.
78 miles, about 2 hours of beautiful driving from our house and we haven't made it back since our visit 2 weeks ago, between chemo and the weather up in Rocky Mountain Park we just haven't made it back despite talking about it every day. They close for the winter and I don't know the date, but if I get up by there I will swing in to see if they are open, they are that good.
Now we're hoping for an early spring, even before winter really starts.
