Stopped in for a quick lunch ... the food was ok. The seating area was not very clean, and the seating area had a lot of flies. It was a typical Dairy Queen.

Had dipped ice cream. It was same as home, but they didn't dip it in the chocolate correctly. So all the ice cream ran down the sides. A bit messy to eat.
