In 1956 Ed and Andy Prikryl opened the Dairy-ette near Casa Linda in East Dallas. From the beginning the couple made these fantastic burgers, hand-cut fries, ice cream sodas and shakes, and their very own in-house root beer.
It was an idyllic time where James Dean ruled the big screen and Gumby enjoyed the small screen. Coonskin hats and poodle skirts weren’t the only fads, so were car hops wielding skates (the four-wheel variety) and the burger was king.
Today the burger is still a hot commodity in Dallas regardless of the In-N-Out hype machine, and the Dairy-ette stands as a reminder to simpler times. You can still get the shakes and homemade root beer. The burgers and fries are made the same way they were cooked back nearly 55 years ago.
