My family and I happily stumbled upon Dairy Master in Loogootee, Indiana.
What else is there to do but eat plenty of ice cream when your car air conditioner fails during a 100* heat wave? When the going gets tough, the tough eat ice cream!
Dairy Master in Loogootee
Locals in this Indiana town know that Dairy Master is the place to go for cool and creamy ice cream treats. With an on-duty car hop, you don’t even need to go far. With the outrageous heat wave that Indiana was undergoing at the time of our visit, it seemed as though half the town were there. Many sat in their cars for speedy car hop service.
Of course, our family just about ran inside the nicely air conditioned building, but to each his own. Everyone but me ordered shakes: chocolate for the boys and a peanut butter shake for my husband. It was a good thing: in that kind of a heat an ice cream cone melts much faster than a little guy can handle. I think they would have been wearing the thing otherwise.
Me? I’m on a caramel kick so a Caramel Sundae it was. It hit the spot.

But what Dairy Master is really known for is the jumbo Pork Tenderloin Sandwich! I’ve heard it’s a monster of a sandwich and a real standout.
It just about killed me to walk away without from this Martin County establishment without trying it. You know my love of pork tenderloin sandwiches.
But…after sitting in such a hot car for so long, hot food was about the last thing I wanted. Now, however, I wish I had gone for it anyway. I’m so curious about it I know I will need to make a return visit just to check it out.
Maybe I’ll make it a Pork Tenderloin Sandwich and a side of cheese fries. With a caramel sundae, of course.
Food, Treats, and Carhops
You’ll love the atmosphere in Dairy Master. Yes, you’ll get that local, “Who is that?” head turn as everyone tries to place your face and remember who you are related to and how. But you’ll also find a friendly atmosphere, excellent service, and a menu full of yummy items. They do mix things up on occasion. I have it on good advice that you should get the puppy chow flurry if you see it.
And, hey, the car hop feature is a really unique little bonus. Those are getting hard to find. It’s a fun, personal touch.
