Great hotdogs! Good chili and they butter toast your buns! French fries and their RANCH are delicious! The KING location to us is the friendliest. People are nice and always speak as soon as you walk in. Food is just as good at other ones but we just like this location the best! Don't forget the ice cream!

We had read about the Dairi-O so since we were in the area, we drove a few extra miles to eat lunch and we were sure glad we did. The first thing you notice is a very nice, clean outside dining area. There are a couple of picnic tables under roofs. The grass is nicer than most yards. We walked... More

I love the hotdog comb. They toast the bun before they make your hotdogs. Yes you can get two hotdog's or just one. The tea is Southern Ice Tea.

Nice, clean place with a lite menu which I like. Mostly just burgers, fries and ice cream. A little pricey for what you get in my opinion.

On our way home from camping in the blue Ridge, the family wanted to get a treat and we had never tried Dairi-O. The kids immediately liked that they could choose any ice cream flavor to make milkshakes. The adults enjoyed Strawberry cheesecake and raspberry swirl scoops (generous sizes). We enjoyed our treats and the outdoor, covered seating allowed us... More

We love Dari O and would love to have one closer to home. The staff is friendly, food is hot and fresh, ice cream is yummy. Carol at the King Dari O is so sweet and wants to help with everything she can to make people feel welcome. What an asset to this place to have Carol.

Try the souvlaki! Or a coleslaw chili dog! Or the fries! The restaurant is super clean and the food is fresh. The employees are super friendly too. We always stop here when we come through town. They have cheerwine in the soda machine! Get a NC style hotdog (buttered and toasted bun, mustard, chili, slaw and onions). So good! Get... More

My older aged parents and my sister visited here over the weekend and we ordered hot dogs onion rings and drinks ( dad got the hamburger, he said was delicious). We were chowing down on those roasted dogs and toasted buns made our way. The O-rings were a little greasy but ooooh so good. Would recommend this place to any... More

My husband loves to eat here. He could eat here everyday. I prefer the burger combo over the hot dog combo, but both are very good. You order your food and pay for it at the front counter. If you want ice cream you have to order that in the back area. They have been here almost 70 years and... More
