Saw the reviews and thought we would give it a try. First off everything is fried, even the vegetables. I got chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes. Ok tasting...not great but not bad. Hamburger was again ok. I probably won't be going here again.

We had supper one evening here. We were very impressed by how clean everything was. Owner Mrs. Bernal was pleasant. She's been running the place for 61 years, she told us. James loved his burger. I just had cottage cheese with peaches (I wasn't very hungry). We saw another couple enjoy a huge milkshake and a banana split. You order... More

Spotlessly clean & fresh inside, good food and friendly service. Add green chilies if you like a little zing with your burger. Good stuff! Our little ones liked the chicken nuggets. Only open 11 to 7 most days. Cash only

We rolled into this little town in hopes of finding some gas and food. Most of the town has closed up so we thought we’d give Dairy Delite a try…I mean really, how can you go wrong with a small town greasy spoon? Well, these folks are downright charming and so hospitable. This restaurant had a constant flow of customers... More

In years of driving this road I have never ventured off for a bite until I hit a major town. Minnie's Dairy Delight will be my new go to lunch on the road place from now on. It reminds me of the first restaurant I worked in as a high school kid; basic burgers, Mexican food and soft serve. Service... More

I stopped on my way from Raton to Santa Fe. The Dairy Delite has delicious green chili cheese burgers, tacos, and fries. I had a great lunch time meal, and was treated nicely by the ladies that work there. I will be back!

I grew up in Springer and look forward to going back to the Dairy Delite every year for the best tacos ever, mixed vegetables and a cherry lemon 7Up! If you're passing through Springer, definitely stop, so worth it! They also have the best ice cream - have a brown derby (chocolate dipped cone)!!

We always stop by the dairy for tacos and a shake (in the summer, that is). It's a family run establishment that is very kid-friendly. Wish they were open all year!
