Old DQ but with the full menu

Ice Cream .. Blizzard Upside Down .. Perfect before, during and after a beach day! If you are hungry and want to stay healthy .. Try the Turkey Wrap ... But then go with a fudge bar .. The Blizzard might not fit the healthy category!

We go here for lunch and it is great, the burger and fries cooked as we like and of course the blizzard always a good choice and the staff is very attentive to one's needs.

Good old DQ! Plenty of seating inside and out. Service was great and they had their typical, but delicious menu of ice creams! Only knock is that the area by the garbage smelled like week old katchup.

Had a Salty Caramel Pecan and Chocolate Pecan Blizzard. They don't get much better than this! They were very busy, but service was good and timely.

The only reason I was going to DQ was their Hawaiian Blizzard. In the summer, I found out that it is not in the menu any more. However, while we were on the Island we wanted some ice cream and we went to DQ. My favorite flavor wasn't in the menu and curious to find out why they don't offer... More

Its just okay. Not excellent. its because the staff don't speak English. Placing my order at the counter for a simple dq blizzard was difficult. I couldn't understand her and she couldn't understand me.
