Dairy Queen has become famous for taking soft serve ice cream mixing it with toppings and calling it a blizzard and it is very good for the kids who love it.

We visited Dairy Queen and had a good time. The ice cream was good and the prices reasonable. This place is always busy.

We had just eaten across the street at Green Tea and wanted something sweet so I suggested DQ and to her surprise, LOL. I got the small vanilla soft serve in a waffle cone and she got some peppermint blizzard in a chocolate waffle cone. We enjoyed our sweet treats like we were teenagers again. :-) We went through the... More

So happy they are open year round now and the drive thru makes it extra convenient. The ice creams are all great but my Favorite are the shakes which are amazing because you can add malt to any of the flavors which is so hard to find these days. They also serve Orange Julius products which is awesome to have... More

My friend got a small cone of the classic vanilla soft serve that DQ is famous for. I got a small... More

Love the ice cream and the price! Like seating outside and watching the people drive by. Reminds me of the 60's. And the Staff is great!

I've lived in the area for over 30 years and this is a ice cream hot spot. We went there after school and midterms & finals to celebrate. As an adult it's still a hot spot and you always run into someone you know getting great ice cream & treats. I love that they carry Orange Julius smoothies now too.... More
