I would give DQ five stars always, unless it was really really bad. It was normal so I give it five stars. The bathrooms were clean. The place was a touch messy with the napkins on the floor and the drinks fountain sticky. The sweet tea was not the best this time. The blizzards and five buck lunch were tasty... More

We went through the drive thru and waited at least 15 min. for 2 small cones. It seems to be consistently slow here. The cones were good tho......

We stopped here to grab an inexpensive and quick bite to eat and left completely worn out by the experience. First, expect to pay about $1 more than you would at a typical subway, maybe that's just the price of getting the stuff delivered out to a small town, but we had recently been to a subway in a larger...

We were refused service at the drive up window. Ordered the food, and drove to the window. The girl inside didn't like who was inside the car and said she wouldn't give us our food! Really????
