During the warm months, you will see people standing in long lines wrapped around the building just to place their order at Second Street Dari Creme. From little children to the grandparents holding their "patiently" waiting little hands in line, everyone is excited to get their food.
This dairy bar is a long time local favorite. Owned by the Born family, the business was started in 1956 by Bob Born. Bob passed the restaurant to his son Jason Born, who has since passed it to his son, Austin.
Austin’s favorite menu item is their footers (with everything on them and slaw) with a side of potato munchers.
The Dairy Bar has an old-fashioned American Dairy Bar theme, and it definitely shows! Their unique building with bright colors help them to stand out along Second Street. Whenever you see the big ice cream cone on their sign, your mouth instantly starts to water!
The famous footer sauce recipe originated from Bob Born, and to this day, it is a mystery to the family on where the idea came from.
When I asked them what the local support meant to them during this time, they said, “During this time, local support is everything to small businesses like ours. Local support has kept the Second Street Dairy Bar running for the last 64 years! During this hard time, local support allows us to continue to safely serve our customers.”
