“Better than Dorman's, Applebees or MacDonalds”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This is as good a place as any to get lunch and ice cream on the cheap. Their two burger special is always good, and so is the ice cream, although it is not the best in the world. However, given all the hype surrounding Dorman's, which offers nothing special in terms of ice cream, Diary Queen is a safe fallback and a basic good value. You know what you're getting.

“Standard DQ fare”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

The parking can be tricky but, other than that, there is nothing remarkable about this particular locale. Pretty standard DQ fare.

“Food used to be great. Not so for the past year.”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Care isn't taken with the food, even with few people waiting. It's very disappointing, because the food had been very well prepared by someone who obviously cared about it. The drop in quality started last year. and I have missed the good cooking. Direct contact with the store didn't help, or I wouldn't be posting this.

This year isn't off to a good start, unless you want the frozen offerings. As is true everywhere, prices are higher. It would be one thing to pay more for that same good quality. Would be happy to. Otherwise - no go, except for ice cream.

“love it”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

What can you say.. Soft serve with a smile. Going to miss it when it is closed for the winter. But will have some thing to look foward to in the spring. Thank you for a great summer.

“Be prepared to wait”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Great DQ good but very slow and the staff has a permanent bad attitude. Spoke with the manager who was rude and dismissive. Often you're told "we're too busy to make a meal" and "we're only doing ice cream cause we're busy". huh??
