“Ice Cream”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

This was a very nice place to get ice cream. A young man named Ben served us and was very helpful and polite. I would put it on a stop on your places to go in Grand Lake

“It was so Great last year and so bad this year.....”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We had so looked forward to a trip to the Dairy King, counting the days until they opened the road through Rocky Mountain National Park and even went up a couple of days early hoping the road would open early but it didn't. So we went again today.

It was a great drive through the park.
But the lunch was... well..., very bad.
The downsized hamburger is now made with one of those Super-El Cheapo frozen patties that are never good. Threw the fries away along with most of what they called a milkshake. They use to make great shakes and malts, but now they put soft-serve ice-cream in a cup and called it a milkshake.
That is not a milkshake! Or worth crossing a parking lot to get.
$20 for a meal and threw most of it away. Good thing we didn't order as much as we had planned to order.

“Best little grill in town”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

Of the three or four grills in Grand Lake, this one is my favorite. The food is good, the ice cream is tasty, the prices are fair, and the service is good. The only drawback is that if you pay by credit or debit card, you'll need some cash to tip the servers if you choose to do so because they still do not have a tip line on their credit slips (despite saying for years that they're going to add one).

“Good burger”
Reviewed 6 October 2012 via mobile

We ate a late lunch here on a Monday. The place was very small inside had 3 booths & a bar. You could also eat outside on a couple of tables. We both ordered burgers and fries. Cooked to order; they were good and reasonably priced. Service was good. The restroom is located in the kitchen (had to ask).
