This is a fun little DQ as it only sells ice cream. The seating is limited to picnic tables but that allows you to people watch along 4th Avenue.

This place has a drive-through no less. Prices are very high. We ordered a large shake and it was nearly four dollars and there wasn't much in it but milk. Chocolate taste was non-existent.

I just always know that when I go to Dairy Queen I will never be suprised at low quality. All their ice creams are so good. Once in awhile I see that they will have what is called a pizza puff. Try it if you can it is so good

If you've never had a coffee milkshake, try one! DQ will happily make it just for you.
