Last resort for a Blizzard

My husband and I are Blizzard aficionados. It is unfortunate for us that this DQ is the closest to where we live. The issue with the Blizzards made at this DQ is they are very stingy with the added ingredients. It is not uncommon to eat the top third of the Blizzard and then discover... read more

This Dairy Queen is one of the original buildings in the franchise. Their ice creams are always delicious. The only problem with this DQ is that it is limited to ice cream only - no burgers, hotdogs.

It is an old DQ with very limited products and services. Because it is an old franchise, it has a protected territory and does not have to improve its store. It is all outside service, and no grill like the DQ Chill-n-Grill stores. No cakes available either. If you want a fast soft serve cone its OK, but more than... More

small town America at it's best here... who doesn't love ice cream and all it's variations that Dairy Queen provides. Out-of-towners should know that this location is a window service, ice cream only, outside tables. (There are two great food options in the same parking lot, so no worries.)

Nation wide chain. DQ has increased it's menu.. from ice cream to other stuff to consume. There are better ice cream places like Baskin Robins, and if you can find one, home made ice cream..

Seinfeld fans will be reminded of that little guy who sold soup if they meet the little lady here. Otherwise, others are very helpful and well meaning. However, we have tried four or five different time to get a few malted milk shakes and they are always gritty to tasteless until you get to the bottom where all the malt... More
