Mississippi Mudds vs. De Dee’s Dairy
June 7, 2012 Leave a comment
De Dee’s Dairy is known for its big scoop, stating, “The best ice cream place in Western, NY proudly serving Perry’s ice cream. Can’t forget our delicious pies from Mangia Cakes in Lewiston!” De Dee’s Dairy has a great, old-fashioned barn-like theme for its restaurant with seating inside and picnic benches outside. The best way to know you are at De Dee’s is by the large cow seen on the top of the restaurant.
They also, in my personal opinion, have some of the greatest milk shakes this side of the falls. When I went to De Dee’s I ordered a peanut butter milkshake. They made the milk shake with real scoops of peanut butter ice cream, which made the shake so thick and creamy. It was one of the best shakes I ever had.
At Mississippi Mudds, the staff claims to have “Western New York’s best chicken breast sandwich.” Also they are known for their specialty “Mudd burger,” and “Mudd sundae.” The sundae is made up of vanilla custard topped with a brownie, hot fudge, peanut butter, and whipped cream. Mississippi Mudds has both inside dinning and outside dinning on the patio and the roof. The theme of the restaurant is like being in a lighthouse; it is best known for having a lighthouse tower on the roof. One of the best parts of going to Mississippi Mudds is being right on the river and getting to walk along the river with your ice cream. It’s also a great spot for a first date.
When I went to Mississippi Mudds and had the peach frozen yogurt, while my friend go the “Mudd burger.” The frozen yogurt was great; I was unsure about the peach flavor, but it was delightful and not too peachy. My friend said the “Mudd burger” was a monster of a burger and packed with a choice of toppings.
Ultimately, both places are great for dinner and a sweet treat.
Mississippi Mudds is located at 313 Niagara St., Tonawanda. De Dee’s Dairy is located 8715 Niagara Falls Blvd., Niagara Falls.
