We stopped here for ice cream on the way to Mt Rushmore. It was a typical dairy queen, looked like teenagers working with a mixed bag of customers. They were fairly quick, but the place could have been cleaner. I think they had been very busy. The parking is not very good if you have a truck. Overall, the blizzards... More

This dairy queen is the greatest. A little slow in getting our order taken but good. The food was tasty and the banana split was to die for.

Sunday afternoon in Hill City. Getting ready to go to Mount Rushmore at night lights. Service was fast. Got what was expected. Great fries. They offer Gatorade too!

Stopped here while on vacation in South Dakota. It was fine. Haven't eaten at a Dairy Queen in a while, so it bought back many good memories.

We walked into the DQ to three teenagers messing around. One of the young boys was rubbing his face then making blizzards, no hand washing. Gross. We ordered they couldn't remember the complete order didn't get the blizzards the way we asked. The iced coffee was not made right I don't think they added water to the concentrated coffee like...

We stopped at around 5 to grab a bite to eat. We ordered two 1/4 lb. cheeseburgers, and 2 shakes and our bill was $21.....Outrageous!!! Heard several other people complain about the cost....Way to gouge the tourists!! Later that evening, both my hubby and I did not feel well, and our stomach were upset. Won't eat out at the Custer...

A blizzard on a hot day is the way to go. We frequent the Zion DQ after our grandson's sports events.

We were wanting a "Blizzard" one night, but we're disappointed when we were told that they had run out of ice cream. All of of the employees that were working appeared to be teenagers. The place was very messey and dirty. I would not recommend this place for fo I d or service.

You can't say anything bad about Dairy Queen's ice cream. Always good could be a little cheaper but never had bad ice cream here. Worth a stop for a Buster Bar or Dilly Bar or Blizzard!
