Davenport West End’s Dairy Freez Set To Open This Week
The Dairy Freeze on Rockingham Road in Davenport is one of the areas most favorite places to gather with family.
Originally a Tastee Freez, the drive-in style restaurant looks almost exactly as it did the day it opened in 1964.
While it has, of course, changed owners and management a few times over the nearly 60 years it's been open, it has remained the crown jewel of Davenport's West End.
The store is opening for the 2023 season this week, opening Friday at 10am to kick off the first weekend of April.
The new hours for the business will be open at 10am and staying open through dinner to 6pm.
Be sure to get out and support the new ownership in their first days of operating.
If you haven't been to Dairy Freez, know that the experience is as good as the food. You'll be transported straight back to the days of standing in line at a drive-in to get your burger, shake and soda.
For the full experience, crank some John Mellencamp as you sit under the shady tree, eating one of their awesome chili dogs.
Dairy Freez is known for their soft-serve ice cream, shakes, burgers, and assorted fried appetizers. The new owners are serving a limited menu, with a full menu coming this spring.
If it's not on your list of places to go when things warm up, you're not doing yourself any favors.
I'll be there plenty of times the rest of this season, and I hope you are too.
