It was a very warm day, wo we stopped at this Dairy Queen for something on our way home. It is a small, old fashioned Dairy Queen. The only negative issue that I have is that parking can be a problem. We ordered two Blizzards...More

This place was packed when I came but the employees seem to know how to handle it like pros-fast, efficient, delicious. The parking is a mess, though, because the lot next door will boot you, but the DQ has 6 spots.

I admit that I'm in the camp of people who wish all Dairy Queens would remain open and not close seasonally, but this one does. BUT, spring is here, and so are Blizzards. This is definitely an old-school, family-owned Dairy Queen, which has been in...More

The quintessential Dairy Queen. This is a walk-in only. No tables, no fluff just great 'ol time ice cream!

What can you say other than this place captures the true essence of summer! We still love it but the ice cream is just not the same anymore, but that said again, we still go often! People pup tents as the summer opening countdown starts!

I love to come here whenever I'm visiting family, because it hasn't changed. Tip, though -- don't park in the parking lot next door, or you will be ticketed!

This place has been here forever. Family owned for years. No dining in here, but nice people and good service.

If you want a quick ice cream cone this is the place to go. The blizzards are great. Parking can be an issue getting in and out.

The ice cream is the same, but with the 'booting' in the parking lot to the west, there are virtually no nearby legal places to park! We drove the loop around this place twice, then gave up and parked legally a block away..... That'll grow...More
