Remodeled several years ago. Look it's a Dairy Queen, but it is a nice, clean Dairy Queen. Workers are always attentive. Blizzards are always good!

Stopped here for an after dinner malt and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was clean and fairly cozy to sit in. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The ice cream did not disappoint and made for a very positive experience for us.
