Food Review: Dairy Keen

I apologize beforehand if my enthusiasm isn't what it usually is about food. I continue to eat (I have to, duh!), but now-a-days a half a slice of toast is hard to get down. =( We still eat out, you didn't think I would actually start cooking now, did you? Of course I wouldn't do such a thing. I don't pick or have cravings...except Jamba Juice...oh my sweet Jamba Juice.
I left you last week on our mission to find the best burger in Utah. Paul didn't agree with my pick of the cheeseburger at Jack and Jill's Bowling Lanes Cafe...we then quickly planned a trip to the Dairy Keen in Heber, Utah so that he could show me again just how splendid a "Train Burger" is at Dairy Keen! Dairy Keen's theme is obvious by the name of their burger. They don't have a play land, but this place is so much fun for kids...and it is even entertaining for adults. Just look at their cute drive thru...They of course have a cute train ride outside that we never forget to put quarters in. AND an adorable picnic table train that all the kids can take their kids meals outside to eat on. Nothing to do with the food, but I always LOVE their toys in the kids meals. With Lego tables, a train that runs over head at all times, a bunch of different trains to play with on a table...Van finds it very hard to eat. She is often running between the table and whatever is catching her eye at the moment.

This is Paul's pick for the best burger in Utah, and you didn't think that we would have a burger and not a shake!? The chocolate icecream for me, and the cookie dough for Paul...we compromise on pretty much everything. {wink}

I have another burger joint named JCW's lined up for next Friday...it was a suggestion by one of my readers. You know who you are.

Dieting is not for me, a muffin top is what I'll be!

My grandpa used to take us there all the time to get shakes because they'd put in local fresh fruit like raspberries. I always got butterfinger though. I haven't been there in so long.

I have been to Heber a couple times but never stopped at the Dairy Keen. I think I have heard my Grandma say that that is a good place to eat. Next time we head that way we will have to make a stop.

I love, love, love Dairy Keen! I always look for excuses to go up there and always get a shake and onion rings. I think I need to make a trip to Heber next week...

I had a boyfriend who took me to eat there a couple of times... so a long time ago, since apparently having a boyfriend if you're married is frowned upon ;). I never ate anything at the Dairy Keen that I didn't like!

Yay Dairy Keen! I worked there for two years during high school and it was awesome! I got all the free food I wanted :)

I grew up in Heber... can I get a w00t w00t! Dairy keen is pretty awesome. They have gone through an extensive overhaul since back in the day. But they still have the awesome train around the ceiling... don't they?
