Somebody Help This Poor Boy: Best Milkshake in Dallas?

Oh, boy this sounds so good right now. Listen up and give him good advice.

Nancy, my wife and I just moved here from San Francisco. We are milkshake freaks. What places in Dallas make really good milkshakes using artisan ingredients or housemade ice cream.

Should we tell him now? Or wait for him to get to know Dallas a little better. Give him your best shot.

  1. Highland Park Pharmacy.. for the very very best in my opinion… and what a grilled cheese they make.. ok.. you didn’t ask that but it’s a bonus.

  2. Paciugo! Their “frappes” (milkshakes) can be made with any flavor they have, such as creme brulee!

  3. Potbelly. Made to exacting standards, their shakes are consistently thick enough to eat with a spoon.

  4. Ritzy’s Fresh American Diner in Grapevine, apparently called one of the best in America by People Magazine somehow. Tons of flavors of made from scratch ice cream including Key Lime Pie and Cherry Chocolate Amaretto. Twisted Root. Purple Cow has some amazing shakes, including the famous PB&J and various adult options.
