The staff was not freindly or helpful. This was not anything like most Dairy Queens. It was not very appealing to even sit in there was no private sitting area.

We visited Dairy Queen when we were in a bit of a time crunch and found it to be a good choice. Food was good and service was timely.

I normally would not review a DQ, but did want to acknowledge that I was impressed with the manager keeping staff moving when equipment was being finicky. We were driving through late at night on the Friday of Labor Day weekend and not much was open in Custer when we found the DQ. Even though the equipment was acting up,... More

Open late, which was great for our family after a long drive to custer. They had a huge selection of fast food items and tons of desserts! The owner was so friendly with lots of suggestions(we dont have a dairy queen where we live) so I didn't know what to order. We ended up with a big meal and blizzards... More

The kids wanted ice cream. So, we went to Dairy Queen... our wait was about 40 minutes to get our ice cream. There was no rhyme or reason as to the order of making the orders. When our Blizzards arrived, they were delivered by a woman who had ice cream literally dripping from the side of her mouth. VERY unprofessional.

We stopped in after a great chilly ride through the park...the blizzard was made perfectly. M&M Blizzard with added strawberries & my husband had the chicken sandwich..DELICIOUS! The employees made the stop enjoyable. Thank you!

Not sure if it is the acoustics but the staff was LOUD. They were busy the first time I stopped in and orders were being shouted to the back LOUDLY. It seems a little run down. Staff member shared with me her frustration with other staff not getting orders out. 2nd time I stopped in it was not as busy... More

I arrived Custer at night and this is the only place opened after 9pm. The grilled chicken sandwich tasted very good which was beyond my expectation, but the staff was very unfriendly for no reason.
