“Good ice cream!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

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.

“Family Tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

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!

“Should do better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

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, who had very long hair, was not wearing a net. We did get our money back for the sandwich, but lunch was over early for us.

“Ice Cream at DQ”

Went here with family, the service is very slow. But the ice cream was good the peanuts on the parfait were fresh. Your on vacation so you should just slow down and enjoy the wait .
