Average DQ. The young man taking the order seemed a bit disinterested in doing his job. But otherwise the food was fine and it was quick enough for expectations.

This location seems to make my favorite Blizzard. They are fast, and fill the cups up to the very top and of course always serve them upside down... Great place to take a break while visiting Cherokee, NC

The restaurant obviously needs help! Only one register open and part of the eat in area closed off. Most importantly, the food was good. The $5.00 lunch with a deluxe burger, fries, drink and sundae was fresh and hot.

Typical DQ, it was a little dirty and the ice maker on the fountain unit was extremely dirty. I decided not to buy drink because of that.

Very slow service. It took about 30 minutes to get our food. Staff don't really care, thank goodness I had time.

Good ice cream , didn't try any food but others looked good, does not stay open long enough to get dinner which is bad because there are very few choices in this town

Terrible staff, unfriendly and unkept. The blizzard was still a blizzard I suppose, thankfully they couldn't screw that up. But the whole place smelt like stale grease and the staff looked miserable. Stay away.
