“Last resort for a Blizzard”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

My husband and I are Blizzard aficionados. It is unfortunate for us that this DQ is the closest to where we live. The issue with the Blizzards made at this DQ is they are very stingy with the added ingredients. It is not uncommon to eat the top third of the Blizzard and then discover almost-plain soft serve for the bottom third. Since they are the closest DQ, we've (unfortunately) given them many opportunities to surprise us with a great Blizzard. I can't comment on their other offerings since I've only gotten Blizzards there.

“Peanut Buster Parfait - YUM!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This Dairy Queen is one of the original buildings in the franchise. Their ice creams are always delicious. The only problem with this DQ is that it is limited to ice cream only - no burgers, hotdogs.

“Old DQ with Limited Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

It is an old DQ with very limited products and services. Because it is an old franchise, it has a protected territory and does not have to improve its store. It is all outside service, and no grill like the DQ Chill-n-Grill stores. No cakes available either. If you want a fast soft serve cone its OK, but more than that its not.

“a hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

small town America at it's best here... who doesn't love ice cream and all it's variations that Dairy Queen provides. Out-of-towners should know that this location is a window service, ice cream only, outside tables. (There are two great food options in the same parking lot, so no worries.)

“Soft Ice Cream”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

Nation wide chain. DQ has increased it's menu.. from ice cream to other stuff to consume. There are better ice cream places like Baskin Robins, and if you can find one, home made ice cream..
