Thank you! It's pretty sad when we compare our DQ with another town. They were ON IT! we has our treats before we even sat down. Our own hometown one takes 20 minutes. IT was a great way to end the day. thank you

Do I really have to write a review to convince you to go here? It's your average dairy queen, except it's super quick with a quick, positive staff. The parking lot was completely full, so we had to park far away and walk.. Once we got to the door, there were hundreds of ice cream-craving customers waiting on the inside... More

Don't go to the gelato place--that stuff looked really disgusting. Like it melts and refreezes all of the time. The DQ people were friendly and efficient! And have good soft serve--even if they don't have butterscotch hard shell. :/

Great blizzards and they were pretty quick in service. It was right on the main street close to the family activities.

We only ordered ice cream but I was impressed with how quickly we got it. Usually it takes just a bit to make blizzards. They were pretty fast.

There is just something about going for ice cream at Dairy Queen while at Padre. For the 9 of us it is a inexpensive excursion out of the rental house and every one can get what they want. The service seems about average speed for me and the ice cream is always good and it is cold!

Upon arriving on the island a little too early to check in, we decided to stop at DQ for a quick lunch. The service was extremely slow, especially considering there were only two other people there, who had already been served. But the worst was the hair in one of our sandwiches. We quickly identified the source since the cook,... More
