We pulled up to the drive through, waited for over 5 minutes with no acknowledgement. Then parked and went to the counter. Stood there for more than 5 minutes with no acknowledgement even though several employees were working. The place was a mess. It appeared the employees were mad at each other. We walked out and will never go back.... More

Service is awesome. We stop before meetings on Monday evenings. Staff is friendly. Food is prepared fresh. Great place to stop. Not slow and not fast. Very reasonable wait for great food. Value meal is good. Will return often.

For some unknown reason, the drive thru experience at this DQ is REALLY FRUSTRATING and a crap-shoot on whether service is prompt or incredibly slow. 2nd in line waited 12 minutes behind one SUV who appeared to get an order for 4-5 passengers. We will go elsewhere next time we want to get dessert ... maybe MacDonald's down the block.

Stopped for some Blizzards and both the drive-through and inside were quite busy. In spite, the associates were quite friendly and took our order quickly, Given how busy the DQ was the Blizzards came out quite quickly

People in Gray jam the parking lot for ice cream and dairy treats--almost year round. It can get very busy! Beware ice cream ain't cheap these days.

A decent place for lunch, not just an ice cream bar. In fact their sundaes aren't as good as the traditional DQ sundae; but their sandwiches score well. Service can be very slow. Usually crowded. Bathrooms could be kept cleaner.

From time to time we stop there for their hamburger or chicken sandwich combos which they put on sale for $5 including a drink and a small ice cream Sundae.
