PROPHETSTOWN – Dari-DeLite is back.

During the ’60s and ’70s, Dari-DeLite was the place to go in P’town: families came for ice cream, teens came to flirt, and anyone cruising Main Street made a lap around the parking lot.

It has changed owners and names several times since, but now it is again Dari-DeLite. Brandi Fisk opened the restaurant on Memorial Day weekend.

Since man cannot live on cones, sundaes, shakes, malts, floats and banana splits alone, Fisk also offers a limited menu of sandwiches, appetizers and baskets made to order.

Although she’s not sure whether it will be possible to stay open through the winter, she wants to try.

Dari-DeLite and Grill, 710 Swanson Drive (state Route 78 just as it makes the curve at the south end of Main Street), is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Call ahead at 815-718-1650 any time after 10 a.m. and your order will be ready when you get there.
