I always visit Dairy King when I have business in Carlyle! Salads are fresh, fries give you just the right dose of grease and the ice cream is yummy! I've even become a fan of Diet Ski. If your body needs a dose of comfort food, look no further!

Dairy king is a must if you are passing through this small town. They carry the famous ski soda and have a variety of flavors you can add to it, iced or frozen.

Their way of preparing taco salad isn't like other restaurants' style. It is not a bowl shell with the fixings inside. It is the fixings and chips in a take-out container. The fixings tastes extra strong with taco seasonings. This place was so busy with drive-through orders, I am speculating the couldn't take time to prepare a taco salad correctly.... More

Thank you for the four stars. We have been around for over 60 years. A little history about Dairy King, 22 years ago my husband and I bought from another family that owned it for 20 years. That item has been around for awhile, therefore, the taco salad has been prepared that way for decades. We may have to consider... More

if you are ever in Breese, stop in they have the best food around. Hamburgers and wraps are very good, plus the soup is to die for.

Pros- Great food; large selection of food, drinks, and desserts; friendly service; decent portions; hot off the grill and very fresh ingredients Cons- long lines at drive thru (but have 2 to make it go faster) and charge for condiments (ketchup, lettuce, tomato, etc.)

Ice cream always a good bet and of course fountain Ski with a number of great flavorings to add. Fried mushrooms, fried pickles, fried onion rings can make a meal!

I'm at Dairy King in Breese at least once or twice a week. Love the concretes, especially Monster Cookie, and the cheeseburgers which are so good you don't need anything else on them although I add pickles for crunch. Also the raspberry chicken salad is delicious! The only problem is the drive-thru gets backed up at times and don't even... More

Hmm, I guess we are spoiled by having ice cream places back home which have good quality products and expedient service. The Dairy King lacks in both these categories. I asked for mint shake with coconut shavings added. I had to use a great deal of imagination to taste the mint. It was have been left out. I asked our... More

From specialty shakes, crunch cones to concretes. They serve the most amazing ice cream. We have been frequenting this restraint for 13yrs. Of which we have only had one experience that I would rate at less then 100% satisfaction. Kids favorite ice cream place-over all other places. Plus they also serve a variety of other food, cheeseburgers, salads, gyros. All... More
