Take your time and look over the menu. There are many different types of ice cream dishes to choose from! They have a lot of sundaes, shakes, malts. You can even get an old fashioned phosphate soda! In addition to the soft serve you will find a wide range of scooped ice cream.

Well I'm a fan of frozen treats and unfortunately this place is just down the street from me. The only negatives that I have are the seasonal closure and the cash only. I don't usually carry cash, but I will from time to time stop and get a $20.00 and make it last a bit for some Dari B

If you want good old fashioned icecream you need to get yourself to Dairy B before Oct 31st!!! It's seasonal and I dream of March 1st all winter, waiting for it to open again! From shakes to Sangria to hot fudge brownie delight it's the yummiest!

Since I live close by, I can only allow myself so many visits a year. This place could become very habit-forming. Always pleasant people, always good ice cream and any kind of specialty you would like to have is available. It closes in the winter and I always anxiously await its reopening in the spring, like everyone else in town.... More

This is a great little ice cream joint that has been around for many years. It is a town favorite. The upside down banana split as well as the coke freeze are my favorites.

My husband and I recently stayed at The Elms for a weekend. We saw this little ice cream shop on the way into town and made a mental note to visit it. We went on Monday afternoon and the line was short. My husband got a coke float and I got a sundae with chocolate chip cookie dough. Both items... More

You do get good ice cream here but the main reason to come is because Dari B is just one of those few places left that has real character. There is a much bigger Sonic in the new end of town but it just feels your making a corporate transaction there. Standing in front of Dari B with your summer... More

Dari B Drive In is the place to be March 1st every year. They may as well make it a holiday for Excelsior Springs. The day Dari B opens. Best place to get your ice cream on.

After reading other reviews we decided to grab some ice cream. I got the caramel brownie Dari B delete sundae and was not overly impressed. I should have gone for one of the unusual milkshake flavors instead. My hub and and daughter got wizards and enjoyed them. Overall it was a good experience

Wish they accepted debit cards. Cash only. Quaint little place on the outskirts of town. Ice cream is good! Loved the sangria iced drinks!! My husband enjoys their upside down banana split served in a cup. Yummy.
