It was our first visit to this location and we were very satisfied with how attentive and pleasant the staff was. They completed our order quickly and the seating area was very clean. A must try for good ice cream.

This facility seems to always employ very young employees who are eager to assist with your order. Everytime I visit the restaurant it IS ALWAYS hot!! WE always get our food and sit in our vehicle. These poor teenagers sacrifice the heat just for a paycheck!!

Their blizzards never disappoint on a hot summer evening. I love that our local DQ runs coupons to buy one get one free. We have never had anything other than ice cream so I can't give info on that.

The ice cream is still as good as I remember it as a child . I love the strawberry sundaes with the wet walnuts and whipped cream .

There was a short hair in my fries, the bathroom smelled horrible, and the staff could care less. The sweet tea trough was out and when I asked for more, they said "that's it." You'd think they would tell people that do they don't pay for a drink they can't get. They could seriously care less about their jobs. All... More

We always seek a DQ, when traveling, for our quick lunch and our ice cream treat. This location was clean and easy to find at a large intersection off the main highway. Great staff and service.

Good food, pleasant staff. Seemed like everyone working there actually enjoyed their jobs. Customers were greeted warmly, staff was actively cleaning when everyone was taken care of. Had chicken strips and a Blizzard, both of which were great. French Fries were a little soggy, but other than that I had a great experience.

Been here several times and the ice cream always hits the spot. It was very warm upon entering the store so we chose to eat in our vehicle. Staffing was plenty as everyone seemed to be walking on top of each other. An incident happened that the staff didnt seem to know to do. Nonetheless, the service was good and... More

The food at the 40/42 Diary queen is great not to mention the yummy ice cream treats. We often visit this location to get a blizzard or other ice cream. The staff is usually younger workers but they are very professional and work hard.

The food taste pretty good (although very fattening) and is a good value for the money. Of course the ice cream is not Ben and Jerry's or Baskin Robbins but it is very good for soft serve and the soft serve concoctions they come up with. My wife and I frequent this place about once every 2 months and we... More
