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 couldn't get in on Friday night, but we ate here for lunch on the weekend. Good/clean quality of food as expected.

We decided to venture over to desmet for an evening meal. Forgot that it was the pageant weekend. The line was to the door and the service was very slow. Floors had trash and the trash bins were overflowing. The kitchen floors were dirty. The food was good once we finally got it. They were out of hotdog buns.

Staying in town for more than one day we ended up eating here two evenings. The food was good and not a lot wait time to get it.

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????

We think we may have caught this place on a bad day. One problem was that they were seriously understaffed in both sides of the restaurant, so service was very slow. In addition: * Subway worker: "We don't have avocado." Us: "But your sign says it's your special." Subway worker: "We don't sell it." * The Dairy Queen area and... More
